This is my preferred way of coming across new artists, organically. Being based in Philadelphia means I should know more about emerging Hip Hop artists in Philadelphia but thats not always the case. @_Asaad is usually the guy putting me on to new music. Today I came across this video from Ground Up featuring Freeway. Ground Up is a hip hop trio from Philadelphia making great music. Here is a new video from the trio featuring Freeway. The video entitled “Wonderful Day” looks amazing and features great cinematography. View the video and give us your thoughts on it. If you like the video then check out Ground Up’s latest mixtape featuring Don Cannon, Up Late.
Ground Up is a hip-hop trio that resides in Philadelphia. The group members include a producer that goes by Bij Lincs; whose eccentric style and uncanny musical talent is complimentary to the witty wordplay and thoughtful lyrics of the two MC’s, AZAR & MALAKAI. The combination of relentless work as well as a grass-roots marketing strategy has enabled the group to accumulate fans exponentially while simultaneously releasing quality music. Along the way, Ground Up has grown notorious for its live shows; touring at school such as WVU, Temple U, West Chester, UVA, Cornell, Cheyney U, Pittsburgh U, Lincoln U to name a few. Ground Up has also opened up for renowned artists such as Rick Ross, Chiddy Bang, The Nappy Roots, Meek Millz, Gucci Mane, and Chris Webby. Since launching in just 2008, Ground Up has released 6 acclaimed Mixtapes/Albums with a seventh currently in the works that promises to be the most compelling of them all. With the help of their loyal fans, the strong team behind them, and the group’s ability to stay creative, it seems nothing will stop Bij Lincs, AZAR, or MALAKAI from making music their way – from the Ground Up.Support the Ground Up movement!
