The Grouch emerged from the Bay Area intelligent hip hop scene in the mid 90's. He is a member of the world reknowned Living legends crew. As a beat maker, businessman and most notably, MC extraordinare, he has built a reputation for being at the forefront of independent music. His down to earth, heartfelt approach to writing draws listeners in and makes it clear he is not your average "underground artist".
He has sold over 150,000 units independently and performed for hundreds of thousands worldwide.
Currently he is preparing for the release of "Heroes In The City Of Dope", the first collaboration album with fellow Oaklanders, Zion I.
