Humbly beginning on a 4-track recorder nearly 15 years ago, The Grouch has steadily grown into one of the prominent figures within the independent hip-hop scene. Known for captivating his listeners with his down to earth and truthfully poignant raps and production, The Grouch has successfully released over ten solo projects, independently.

Los Angeles native Eligh, also hails from The Living Legends crew and is a self-described “genre-breaking, obsessive bass fiend” that has continued to sustain himself as a salient figure for over fifteen years within the world of hip-hop.
