Finding great worth in performing within a group dynamic… FGE’s own 313phresh and TrueSpeech paired up as #FAMILYGRIND and have aggressively become a stable on the Detroit Hip Hop scene. As #FAMILYGRIND… the duo has performed the 2014 & 2016 Indie Week Music Festival in Toronto, ON (Canada); 2012 and 2013 POP Montreal International Music Festival in Montreal, QC (Canada); opened for hip hop heavyweight and national recording artist Freeway (Roc-A-Fella) and Canadian electro hip-hop band Radio Radio and have shared the same stage alongside some of the best artists & DJs their native Michigan’s music circuit has to offer. Not looking to fit a certain “format” or reduce themselves down to being placed into a “standardized” radio playlist… #FAMILYGRIND released their first full-length studio album “Pirate Radio” in 2014 and their follow-up studio album “Cooking From The Underground” in 2015, which both are best described as a journey of music challenging today’s hip hop status quo filled with personal explorations, social awareness, political commentaries, a good balance of dealing with relationship issues and some braggadocio battle rhymes thrown in for good measure.
