Underground hip-hop duo Grouch & Eli have been getting some rave reviews as of late, particularly for their latest album Say G&E!, which hit the streets last month. The pair of L.A.-based artists, who comprise one-fourth of renowned California hip-hop collective Living Legends, spit some seriously smooth rhymes on the disc that are both intelligent and catchy, especially in songs like "Denial."
Check it out:
"Man I know they don't understand all the way what I'm goin' through/All alone in a room full of people smoking they weed/Drinking they booze/If they only knew what the homey was doing."
You can get a taste of G&E's lyrical skills when the duo hits the Clubhouse music venue tonight. Fellow Living Legends member Scarub will also be in the house, as he's performing with his side project Afro Classics. SoCal's edIT and Universatile Music's Pickster One will open the show. Doors to the all-ages show open at 8 p.m. and admission is $18 (visit UM's ticket site to get access).
