E. Grizzly Breaks Down Hip-Hop Scenes in Philly, NYC, and Miami: "They Are Totally Different"

E. Grizzly is one of the most diverse MCs to come out of the South Florida scene in the last few years. Unrestrained by the physical limitations of the state, he has forged an identity through works in Philaelphia, New York City, and South Florida. A Renaissance man of sorts, he is as involved with reworking beats by established producers as he is forging an artistic presence in graphic design and promotion.

On his latest effort, Generation 01000001, or Generation A, he one-ups Don Draper's sexiest hour by rhyming over RJD2's work and the results are a chalk-full of the ingredients that make him an MC to look out for: religion, paranoia, science fiction, every-day life, and the incongruence of a well-developed line.
