The greater Washington, D.C., metropolitan area, affectionately referred to as the “DMV,” is a thriving network of talented creatives and one of the most promising areas in the country when speaking on hip-hop. From scene veterans Wale, Tabi Bonney, Oddisee, and Fat Trel, to buzzing newcomers GoldLink, Chaz French, Ras Nebyu, and Yung Gleesh, to lesser known collectives in GramFam, the Whop, and the brilliantly named Kool Klux Klan, it is only a matter of time before this talented nucleus reaches the ears of fans and music critics alike.
One promising up-and-coming group of talented artists is the Maryland-based GramFam. The crew handles all production in-house and boasts a talented roster of young upstart rappers. Their latest release comes in the form of Matt McGhee’s “talk2me,” which includes a guest feature from Miles Meraki, a chorus from rMell, and a haunting vocal-laden instrumental produced by McGhee and production wizard Jaylen! Listen as McGhee and Meraki effortlessly trade bars and steal your girl with the chirp of their Motorola mobile phones.
