Reem Grand – “We Are The Hood”
Born and raised in The Bronx, NY, Reem's style has been described as a blend of 90's Hip-Hop and today's "oxygen." He has stated that watching Black Thought's amazing freestyle in the Funkmaster Flex series as, "The alarm clock that woke me up," and is slowly taking the steps he feels are needed in order to step onto the music scene.
If you were to think that he's not an artist to give an ear to, then maybe his reasoning behind why he's chosen is the time to get into his music. "With everything that's going on in the country we live, I still have the belief that we can use music to push the issues that we have into the light to make the changes we're looking for — and it starts with us."
Reem has been making the effort to get himself into the studio as much as possible in order to fulfill the dreams he's stated through the words he speaks. Along with the help of his childhood friends providing the beats, he's gotten enough material together for his first release in what he calls the "We Are The Hood" series. In order to gain the respect of the Hip-Hop community in the city he loves, he will begin what he's calling his "Open Mic Tour" later this year.
