In an era where mumble rap and multi-colored hair rappers are a common occurrence, real lyricists are often overlooked. But Los Angeles rapper Greedy Macc is true to the game and he’s making sure he gets the attention he deserves.
“I’m a real rapper and I got real word play. I like to make the words connect and rhyme and I like to make a story. Back in the day you had to make songs, now you can just do anything you want and go platinum,” Greedy Macc said.
Getting his start on the road with Too Short in the early 2000’s Greedy Macc fell in love with Hip-Hop and the process of making music being on a major national tour.
“I got started making music just being with friends, then I met Too Short and went on tour with him. It was over from there, I ended up putting together a studio and I’ve been making music since,” Greedy Macc said. “I got songs with Too Short, E-40, Gucci Mane, Tyga, OT Genasis and Iamsu!, I’ve been doing music for a long time. I like making music to make people dance. People hate when I say it, but its a hobby of mine. It’s just one of the dopest things in the world, imagine a world with out music!”
Armed with his new single, “Lebron,” this West Coast staple is looking to make waves in this new generation of rap, so that he can continue to leave his mark on the game he loves so much.
“The Lebron song came about because everyone keeps hating on him for no reason. They say oh he’s not Kobe, or oh he’s not Jordan, and that he doesn’t have the killer instinct. How come they keep stripping everything and taking everything from him? When he got his second ring I kind of had to side with him – and his shoes are comfortable, so I got all his sneaks.”
This track will find a home on his album called Mouthpiece and the project will be followed up by a second release in June. Following Mouthpiece Parts 1 & 2, Greedy Macc is planning on releasing his project Cartier Chris which he plans to release around Christmas in 2018.
