Do You Know who Genesis the GreyKid is? You do? Well then, you’ve obviously up on your underground rapper/poets. For the rest of us, we can consider Genesis’ new video Do You Know one hell of an introduction to the VA native’s unique stye. Opening with a spoken word piece before giving way to some straight up hip-hop founded on a MADLIB beat that could have only come from MADLIB, Know finds Genesis reflecting on his struggles, and the strength those struggles has given him: “I done seen times harder than you think / nothing to drink / had to fill the milk carton with water from the sink.” For more fearlessly creative rap from The GreyKid keep an ear out for his upcoming Grey Matter album, set for release “soon” via Creative Control.
