It’s been a while since we last heard from the Detroit lyricist, but there is something fresh cooking behind closed studio doors. Time to have a look at the rapper’s eventful career so far.
The 26-year-old mastermind has come a long way from ghostwriting, stepping to the mic himself, his first festival performances and a taste of success.
But what we’re really patiently waiting for, is his first long player. Persia Grai is an artist that always had a lot to say and we feel like his debut album would be the perfect place to hear his story uncut.
The story of an artist who dedicated his life to a dream he once shared with his best friends – who he lost in a tragic accident around 10 years ago.
Ever since he has been chasing his goals with the a burning ambition. Music – more than just his passion, more than just his dream.
The young Detroit artist is looking to step into the footsteps of his mentors – from local legend Eminem to Kanye West, he wants to be that guy who made it big making it different.
When he dropped ‘Juice’ and received over a 100k listeners over night, he realized that the difference between making it or breaking it can lie in-between a few hours and a single track. Ever since he has been making that level of numbers on his Soundcloud and Spotify.
But those are to the numbers he has in mind. He has always made it clear, he isn’t in here for the crumbs, he wants the bakery. So where do we go from here?
Rumour has it that there are several projects including Persia Grai’s writing and rapping in the making. Some sources even hinted at the rapper’s bilingual creativity and said that the part Puerto Rican might aim for a different crowd on his new work.
With the industry opening up for international collaborations, breaking barriers that the culture had help up for way too long in the first place, embracing his heritage and cultural diversity could bring another argument in favour of the Detroit artist.
We will see where he is going but one thing’s for sure, Persia Grai is going to be back soon.
