Biography

Grown Folks Hip Hop
The Biography of Apostles

Griot and Megawatt are Apostles; leaders of a new movement in the rap game called Grown Folks Hip Hop. Lyrics center on real life themes that people with jobs, kids and bills can relate to. At the same time it is not rim-and-jewelry-bashing hater music either. It’s socially conscious, from an intelligent-ghetto point of view. Songs like “Stay on Ur Hustle,” from their latest LP, Makin the People Move, showcase their perspective and lyrical talent with bars like “Late night working hard 9-5 plus overtime/ believe it or not we’re modern day slave walking the chain line/ without the whip….”

Griot and Mega have been writing, spitting and producing together since 1999, and separately for even longer. They are a pair of studio rats and a couple of showmen in every sense. Griot (aka G. Riot) has lived on three different continents and has been the driving force behind Apostles since the start. He began by making beats using a free download and now he and Mega own and manage The Place 2B Studios where they make their hits. Megawatt is a High-Honors graduate of the world-renown Institute of Audio Research in New York City. In addition to being two of NYC’s finest emcees, they are both prolific producer/ engineers.

Evolution:
Three years ago Apostles recruited an army of musicians from the NY area and formed the dynamic Apostles Band. They have been expanding their fan-base and their sound ever since. Smashing famous Rock venues like The Knitting Factory, Crash Mansion and Webster Hall with their Grown Folks Hip Hop, Apostles has built a name for themselves as one of the best stage shows popping in the streets. Crowds in Boston, Philadelphia, Denver, of course all 5 boroughs in NYC and even 5 cities in Australia have all borne witness. Apostles is everything Hip Hop has been missing and all the good sh-t it never lost.
