East Atlanta-bred rapper GRIP is officially the latest Shady Records signee. Shady Records and Eminem took to social media to announce GRIP as the newest addition to the label’s roster. Labelled as “Atlanta’s Next Great Storyteller”, GRIP has already garnered tremendous buzz and acclaim lately, starting with his 2017 breakout project Porch.
GRIP said about joining the Shady Records, “It was one of those full circle moments because I grew up on Eminem so to have him reach out and let me know how dope my shit is was so cool. Excited to partner with Shady/Interscope and get the music out on a larger platform.”

Talking about GRIP, Shady Records’ President Paul Rosenberg said, “Grip is the type of artist that brings you into his world and expresses himself through a complete composed body of work. We’re excited for him to join the Shady Records family.”
