GrandeMarshall is Allen Iverson’s “Practice?” speech on wax: incisive, headstrong, and not here for your bullshit. From his teenage 800 and Mugga Man mixtapes to last winter’s My Brother’s Keeper LP, Grande has built a catalog of high-grade, highly personal Philadelphia rap music that answers to no one. RISK/REWARD is his latest statement piece, eight new tracks featuring likeminded Philly MCs (Tunji Ige, Pauly Sue) and producers (Noah Breakfast, HeavenInStereo) in the service of one singular, head-nodding vision. Trust the process. Sleeve by Uncle & Prophet, photo by Kumasi Sadiki.
