It’s no secret that Griz loves weed, and it’s no surprise that the Detroit native relocated to beautiful Boulder, Colorado. He recently took his weed smoking to the next level by teaming up with Native Roots dispensary to have his own strain of weed appropriately called “Griz Kush.” It’s every stoner’s dream to have a weed strain named after you, and his strain actually went on to win this year’s cannibis cup, which is Colorado’s premier weed competition/convention.
Here we have a a mini-documentary about Griz Kush showing a behind the scenes look as he talks weed and music in his home studio and at the grow-op. He talks how weed interacts with music and explains how weed helps him hone in creativity and goes on to explain "it's kinda coincidental that right when I started smoking weed I started making music. It’s helps me calm down mentally.” Those of you in town for his Red Rocks show should stop by the dispensary and grab some of that Griz Kush as the perfect mood setter for the night.

We’re just a day away from Travi$ Scott’s debut studio album, Rodeo, which is shaping up to be a special project. Littered with massive features from Quavo, Future, 2 Chainz, Juicy J, The Weeknd, Swae Lee, Chief Keef, Kanye, Justin Beiber, Young Thug, Toro Y Moi, and Schoolboy Q, this album has a star studded cast making for high anticipation levels for it’s official release. We now get another glimpse of the album with the Schoolboy Q collaboration “OK Alright" that appears on the deluxe edition. The track starts off with the level of groovy rhymes you’d expect from these rappers and the beat switches to a mellow, minimalist instrumental with an uncredited female vocalist sounding like SZA with Travi$ offering some auto tune singing.

Kayzo adds new percussion, gritty synths, and a growling bass drop while leaving Ice Cube and Easy-E's vocals intact. Stream the full premiere below and grab an exclusive download thanks to Kayzo.

Trendsetting future funk, electro-soul pioneer Griz is in the midst of an epic year after releasing his biggest project to date and selling out the legendary Red Rocks over a month in advance. He took a different approach on his previous album, Say It Loud, by conducting studio jam sessions with a multitude of musicians, and recording those sessions to sample and create a unique, original product. Now he’s revisited his roots on a brand new project.
Grant Kwiecenski aka Griz is just too good to us. He’s decided to treat fans with a surprise 9-track mixtape titled Chasing The Golden Hour Pt. 1, and like his previous releases, is available as a free download. Griz is constantly expanding his sound, and this new project is no exception as he draws influence from the golden age of hip hop throughout the 9 tracks for a summer-inspired timeless sound going back to his production roots.
There’s an easygoing energy captured throughout the mixtape as Griz aimed to "recreate the carefree good vibes you feel when it’s just about sunset on the perfect summer evening and everything is the most beautiful shimmering tint of gold.” Each song seems to evoke a airy happiness like we previously heard on singles “Summer ’97” and “Feelin’ High.” Ranging from J-Dilla inspiration to sensual and soulful jazziness, he masterfully blends samples with new original instrumentals and production that blurs nostalgia with his forward thinking sound.
While Griz stepped away from utilizing samples on Say It Loud, he’s perfectly used this craft on his new mixtape / album series to capture a nostalgic, yet timeless, summertime vibe. This mellow project is the perfect music to kick back to and combines his forward thinking production abilities with soulful, jazzy, R&B style smooth instrumentals with a tasteful touch of his gritty bass that effortlessly comes together and is simply accessible to listeners of all backgrounds & generations. As said by the man himself "Chasing The Golden Hour is that magical moment, it is the cool breeze against your back, it is sweet summer swagger in music form. Enjoy the chilled out vibes :)
