StayUp.News editor-in-chief Roberto E. Alejandro recently sat down with Baltimore Hip-hop artist Guy Grams (above in a courtesy photo), for a discussion about his career in Hip-hop, his first two albums (‘Street Intellect’ and ‘The Gateway Drug’), as well as his upcoming project, ‘The Consigliere.’ They also discussed the role Hip-hop artists might play in the political engagement of poor communities (note: this interview was recorded shortly after the not guilty verdict in the trial of Officer Edward Nero in Freddy Gray’s death). Grams’s first two albums are available now at #SupportBaltimoreHiphop.
