Da Grym Reefer officially started his career
using the moniker Renaissance featuring on Dr. Gigglez
1st compilation “Roastin N Toastin Vol. 1”, released in 2002.
He recorded his first solo song, a song titled “Frigid”.
This song opened doors to feature on future releases by
the young independent label headed by Dr. Gigglez,
known as Jacktown Records, commemorating their home
town Jackson, TN.
He was later invited into the label as a solo artist
and went to work on trying to learn the ins and outs
of the music business from recording
to producing to marketing, he decided to go with
the moniker “Da Grym Reefer” by the time he was featured the
second compilation released by Dr. Gigglez.
He released “Live From H8erville…(Da Suic-Psycosis E.P.)”
in 2005 and released his first full solo effort in 2006
“Volume 0: Phukk U (2 All Who Doubt)”.
The album was quietly released to a lukewarm reception
but solidified him a place as the most enigmatic artist
on the Posse Up Entertainment roster and a driving
creative force behind the scenes.
Da Grym Reefer proved he is a force to be reckoned
by the time he released “Da Nickel”.
With a groundbreaking production style and cinematic vision
for detail, Da Grym Reefer is one of few artist
that could make a hit or deep thought provoking rap ballad and make
the video for it as well.
Da Grym Reefer is currently working on his full-length
second release “The Sum of All Fears”.
“I named it "The Sum of All Fears" because I want to show
them I am fearless as an artist…I take chances and don’t try to
sound what everyone
else is doing right now.” he said, when asked about his new album.
