The Grouch

The Grouch was a founding member of the Living Legends crew, a loose collective of MCs and DJs from the Bay Area, Japan, and Europe. The Living Legends eschewed the gangsta posing that dominated the hip-hop community, especially on the West Coast, in favor of clear-eyed raps about real-life issues. They coupled this with a grassroots approach to the music business, choosing to self-release and market their prodigious output. After forming the Legends crew with Oakland's Mystik Journeymen, Grouch released Don't Talk to Me, his first album, on the Living Legends' label. It would mark the beginning of an incredibly prolific recording schedule that would also find the Grouch doing his own production work. In 1996, he released Nothing Changes on cassette only; it was later remastered and issued on CD. Success Is Destiny and F**k the Dumb appeared in 1997 and 1998; various singles and EP releases rounded out the decade. It was also around this time that the Legends crew moved its base of operations from Oakland to Los Angeles, where a portion of its membership -- Murs, Scarub, and Eligh -- had originally resided before moving to the Bay Area. In 2000, the Grouch and Eligh issued G & E Music; that same year They Don't Have This arrived, which was widely regarded as the best work of the Grouch's career. Crusader for Justice followed in 2002. It featured instrumental contributions from the Grouch's father, Stu Blank, who played organ and guitar. (Blank, a renowned Bay Area musician, passed away soon after the recording sessions after a battle with skin cancer.) In February of 2003, the Servin' Justice DVD was released, featuring music videos, live footage, and interviews with the Grouch and members of the Living Legends crew. ~ Johnny Loftus

The Grouch is true rap/hip hop. I love it. This is the stuff that deserves radio airplay but won't ever get it. It's sad to accept that but that's what things like pandora are for. To play the real music for those who enjoy talent.
Follow and I'll do the same. I love branching out my music taste.

oh come ON! i just discovered this artist's song "Ain't My Life" on Youtube hoping to find that one on here, and guess what?? IT'S ALBUM ISN'T EVEN ON HERE, so i can't hope to thumb that song up and get other similar, meaningful songs like that one.

actually, i just looked up on the discography on Wikipedia. there are actually a LOT of albums that ur missing here. well i sure hope these songs u have here are at least as meaningful as the one i discovered and not just put on here by corporatism!
