In his May 2018 piece for Pigeons & Planes, a Hip-Hop writer labeled GRIP “Atlanta’s Next Great Storyteller.” Within two years, he would earn notable co-signs from DJ Booth’s Yoh Phillips and HOT97 personality Ebro Darden.
By 2021, the critically-acclaimed rapper had penned a recording deal with Eminem’s Shady Records and released his first studio album.
Unravel essential details about GRIP’s life by going through his wiki-style biography!
How Old Is GRIP?
Talking about his age, GRIP was 32 years old (as of Aug 2021). He was reportedly born in 1989.
A Capricorn via Sun sign, GRIP celebrates his birthday on 13th January every calendar year.
GRIP Wiki, Bio & Family
Before GRIP adopted his current moniker, he ran by the pseudonym “Kyle Clow.”
GRIP hails from Decatur, Georgia. So does his family, whose identities are confined to his lyrics. Details about his biological parents and siblings also remain in the dark.
Surprisingly, GRIP lacks a Wikipedia profile to submit his burgeoning rapper status. And perhaps for a good reason. The anonymity adds to his mystique.
Opening about his early life in 2020, the rapper said, “At 12 or 13 I jumped off [the porch]… I was doing dumb shit, you know what I’m saying, being reckless and shit.”
Back in 2018, he had this to say about his childhood: “As a kid, we ain’t really have too much. I grew up in my grandma’s house, and it wasn’t in the nicest area… I was always smart, but we were in the hood, so we’d get into shit.”
Even when his GRIP’s family moved to the Stone Island area of Decatur, the money issues continued. In his words: “We wouldn’t have lights sometimes. Nobody else’s shit was like that, but our shit was. Sometimes we wouldn’t have lights, water, whatever.”
How Tall Is He?
In terms of height, GRIP can’t be any taller in stature than the five feet and ten inches mark.
Songs, Albums, Net Worth
GRIP, as per reports online, has above $800K in net worth.
According to GRIP, he first began rapping in middle school. It was T.I.’s 2003 LP “Trap Muzik” that inspired him to take music seriously. Admittedly, he felt compelled to take the art seriously after getting expelled from Dekalb Tech during the first semester for selling drugs.
When quizzed about his inspirations, GRIP cited Hip-Hop icons Outkast, Jay-Z, Goodie Mob, Nas, and Nirvana.
In 2017, GRIP announced his arrival with the debut album titled “Porch.” Comprising of 11 songs, “Porch” earned highly favorable reviews from fans and critics alike.
Returning to the form in 2019, GRIP dropped his career-defining project “Snubnose.” Released under the label “Human Re Sources,” the said LP boasted powerful songs such as “Open Arms,” “Here Is… I am,” “226” and “Finessin’.”
Despite being Hip-Hop’s hottest prospect, GRIP remained a proper “unsigned hype” for a while. In July 2021, he officially penned a deal with Eminem’s imprint Shady Records. Less than 2 months later, the Decatur, Georgia rapper dropped a full-length project titled “I Died For This?”. The album garnered rave reviews from fans and critics alike.
Also, he spearheads the movement called “Stray Society Music.”
Girlfriends, Dating, Baby Mamas
As of late Aug 2021, there were no accounts of GRIP being involved in any baby mama drama. At the time, he was reportedly a father.
The level of anonymity extended to GRIP’s dating life as well. On social media – both Instagram and Twitter – the “911 (Clap For Em)” rapper abstained from revealing his girlfriends.
