Watch As The Rapfest Showcase Winner Grizz X RU Show Off His Potential

This year we have presented some of the most epic ciphers featuring the legendary rap group,  The LOX and countless others. It doesn’t stop there though, we’ve also gotten our hands dirty with the indie artists looking to make a name for themselves. Allow us to reintroduce you to Grizz x RU, our 1st place winner from The Rapfest, first-ever Rapfest Artist showcase. We picked Grizz as the featured artist for this week’s segment of Mean 16. Grizz won over the crowd and our special guest judge Rob Markman during the showcase with a lot energy and crowd participation. We invited him to be apart our Mean 16 series and drop a few lines over the Lavish produced track from Cipher Series 6 which featured Mickey FactzMaffew Ragazino and Bizzy Crook. He definitely held his own on this one with plenty witty word play and harsh reality raps.

As our first place winner, Grizz also won cash prize, photoshoot and a recent meeting with a Def Jam A&R during the Artist Showcase! We’re looking forward to hearing more material from the Rockland county native. For all indie artists looking to be apart of our next artist showcase in New York City on Sept 29th, email us at  Watch the Chris Zino directed visual above!
