Sunday April 22nd marks the two-year anniversary since the passing of Da Grin, the legendary hip hop star whose rise to fame was cut short by an unfortunate auto accident. In remembrance of Da Grin, mobile music powerhouse Spinlet has helped to put together an album with remixes and new songs from his rhyme book.
The first single “If I Die” from the album titled Invincible Bulletproof will release exclusively on The Beat FM on Monday, April 23. “If I die,” Da Grin’s last song released before his passing was remixed with verses added by Show Dem Camp, Styles P, and Nasty J. The track was produced by one of hip-hop’s most popular producers, Frenzy. “Frenzy was a natural choice for producing this song,” Tunde Peters of Spinlet “he worked with Da Grin in the past and does projects for the love of the music and has such a high respect for Da Grin, the music he created, and his real ability to rhyme.” Show Dem Camp, Styles P, and Nasty J are all at the top of their game as rising stars with hit singles and new projects in the works. “Da Grin lives on through artists like these. This is why we wanted to showcase artists undoubtedly inspired by his work and on their own paths to stardom,” says Tolu Williams of Spinlet.
“We are thankful to Da Grin’s family for being so supportive of this project and allowing us access to his personal rhyme book. This gives us an opportunity to showcase his unreleased lyrics, while also adding verses to some of his existing tracks,” say Tolu. The full-length Invincible Bulletproof album will be available exclusively on Spinlet in the coming weeks.
Spinlet is also releasing a video to accompany “If I Die” using footage shot in the style Da Grin would have desired on location in Lagos, Nigeria and Brooklyn, New York. The video will be premiered on May 9 that Industry Nite with a line-up of artists featured on Invincible Bulletproof.
