I LOVE WHEN HIP-HOP AND COMMUNITY COME TOGETHER; it’s truly the essence of this blog. Over the last five years, I’ve been amazed at the heart of Richmond’s hip-hop community and at the top of that list has always been the fun loving crew Gritty City records.
No crew has been hit harder with tragedy than Gritty City. They’ve had tremendous hardship and have lost crew members and friends. Through it all, they rise, they create dope music, they party and they give back.
Gritty City just completed their “For the Kids” mission and it was a great success. “We made a page to collect money in November and also booked a show at En Su Boca on December 10. Between the internet page and the show we collected $958, a couple bags of toys and 2 awesome kids bikes donated by CaryTown bicycles. We took the cash to Toys R Us and bought a bunch of toys and dropped them of at the south side for Toys 4 Tots,” said Jono of Gritty City.
That type of grind and resolve is really what RVA’s hip-hop community is all about. S/O to Gritty City and all the partners that participated and helped out with their effort. #WESEEIT
