Gotee Records’ GRITS celebrates the ten-year mark with the March 7th release of their seventh album simply titled 7. The 16-song release features 13 of the group’s breakthrough tracks, as well as three new songs plus the “Jay Mumbles- Mega Mix” as a special bonus track. The new album follows on the heels of 2004’s highly-acclaimed Dichotomy A and Dichotomy B releases.
While their first three albums established GRITS as underground icons it was their breakthrough fourth album ART OF TRANSLATION that solidified the group's assent as one of hip-hop's hottest new rising stars. Their momentum continued to grow and adding to their already successful radio and video history, GRITS cracked MTV2’s Top 10 Most Requested and Top 5 Handpicked and received favorable media coverage in the pages of XXL, Spin, Vibe, Billboard, The Source, URB and other major publications and media.
Over the course of their career, GRITS has shared the stage with OutKast, Jay-Z, Nappy Roots, Ice Cube, DJ Shadow, De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, Goodie Mob, and Monica. Their music, including the stand-out singles “Here We Go” and “Hittin’ Curves” have received placement on MTV, BET, Network TV, NBA Jams, and the Hollywood Blockbuster “Something’s Gotta Give” starring Jack Nicholson. GRITS have received a Billboard Video Award, two Dove Awards, and most recently a GRAMMY nod.
