23-year-old Grizzie! Is a Chicago-based recording artist working to join the forefront of Chicago Hip-Hop in 2017. Growing up in the Westside of Chicago, but now residing in Lombard, Grizzie!’s music is heavily influenced by the soulful and gritty sounds the area offers. Kanye West, Common, Lupe Fiasco, and Twista are some of Grizzie!’s favorite hometown artists.
“My sound is unorthodox. From my subject matter to even the way I rap. It took me a while to love the way I approach music because when you start out rapping you want to be like your favorite rapper or a person that’s hot at the time. But for me, I never sounded like anybody else, even when I tried to. So I have always been different and I embrace that fully,” Grizzie! shares with us.
With the help of CreativesOnly, Grizzie! has been working on his inVertigo EP for roughly a year now, and is finally ready to share it with the world. The title, inVertigo, comes from not only Grizzie! being an introvert, but allowing listeners to view the way he sees the world, hence the backdrop in the cover art reversed.
