Support Grand National Ink Real Chicago Music and Real Hip-Hop!
I hear a lot of complaints about the lack of talent in Hip-Hop in the past 10-15 years. I am one of those people who complain because the BS music seems to have killed off real rap, real hip hop, real music. I agree that the need for natural talent has declined a lot, as the thirst for big business in Hip-POP grew. Its so bad that people who aren’t even real artists like “Cash-me-outside”, “Tay-K’ and a multitude of others have been sought after by major labels in hopes of a cash cow.
Getting back on track Grand National Ink aren’t your average “trap”, “auto-tune” rappers these dudes are stamped and approved for greatness! Grand National Ink has the talent, now we just need the support from YOU the people! If you are into rappers who really rap, don’t use auto tune, don’t spit BS lyrics, if you are into real Hip-Hop with a eclectic “trap, rock, soul” sound then you will vibe to this album!!
