“A silver Volvo 240 D-L/ It make me wanna choke somebody out/ Call me Sprewell,” Grynch raps on his valentine to his ’86 crapmobile, “My Volvo.” The Ill Pill-produced track, off his ’09 EP Chemistry, recently got the video treatment—which it definitely deserved, as the cut represents all that the diminutive local MC with a hefty baritone is about: honest, often hilarious, tales of something less than the good life. Around the time Grynch released the EP, he had begun flirting with none other than Warren G, as well as getting some love from Billboard magazine. Not sure if this will lead to a new car yet, but this Ballard native is flat-out one of the most talented lyricists in the scene—which is saying something. With D.Black, SOL, DJ Vitamin D.
