Grafh Raps With Impact 210 (Impact Worldwide)

Grafh Raps With Impact 210 (Impact Worldwide)

 

Between grind dates, Grafh took time out for an interview and photo shoot at SOHO’s Impact 210.

Impact210: You were recently featured on BET’s “Ultimate Hustler.”

Grafh: “Ultimate Hustler,” they came and filmed us live. Me and Swizz was recording a record at Swizz Beatz Studios. I wasn’t a part of the show but I got decent exposure. I got that through the relationship we got through Damon Dash. It’s an interesting relationship where he extends his connections to us and vice versa. Blackhand Entertainment, we a strong independent. We’ve been doing this for the last 10 years in terms of how we move. We’re strong in the street.

 

 

Impact210: What is it you like about Dame?

Grafh: One hard work. And loyalty. I’m big on that. He’s loyal and true to who he’s working with and he’s going to rep them all the time. He works 24-7. That’s what we do. We grind all the time and we’re all about loyalty, sticking together. He got honor.

Impact210: You were unhappy at Epic/Sony. What should a major label be able to do for you?

Grafh: They should have the similar qualities that we exude. From a major, all they got to do is cut the check. We are self-sufficient. We rely on ourselves and ourselves solely based on how we move through the country and the world. I got a strong buzz overseas, in Japan. I shot a video in the UK. All they got to do is cut the check. We do everything else. We shoot our own videos. Engineer. Photography. Promotional team. Marketing. Studio. We are a label and a movement. They got to spend those marketing dollars. They make sure your record is in every DJs hand worldwide, send your video out. We can’t walk into MTV and say play this. We can shoot a $50,000-100,000 video. We can provide all the tools. They just got to use them.

Impact210: How did your label, Blackhand get so established?

Grafh: Number one it starts with hard work. I don’t believe in good luck. I think good luck is a byproduct of hard work. Diligence. We do this every day all day. Number one I make good records. Number two we got a strong team and we get the music out to the people. As an artist, I want to be heard. You got to get to the masses. So we all over the place. We in the hood. We do shows in the jails. Shows in the clubs. We worldwide with it. We in the street constantly doing heavy campaigns from the ground up. I think the voice of the streets speaks. That’s where it all starts from. That’s the voice of hip hop, of this generation. Matter of fact, my first deal came from the street grind, mixtapes and DVDs. No matter how successful I get, I’m always going to remain the same person and do the same thing. Continue the same grind. The same hard work. And always stay true to the people. Seeing is believing. We do things like we shot a short movie and put it on DVD and handed it out all over the city.

Impact210: The South is so hot right now. Is New York hip hop trying to make a comeback?

Grafh: With me and my team, I got strong ties in the South. I got a lot of fam down there. Bun B’s my man. I was on Lil Flip’s album. I went on tour with Scarface. Killer Mike is my man. We got Blackhand reps in the South. It’s so real. What I respect about the South, they got a sense of unity. Down there they support each other from the radio to the streets. They want to see each other get strong. Up here we don’t have that unity. I don’t know when it got lost.

Impact210: How do you feel about hip hop today?

Grafh: It’s stagnant at this point. Nobody is doing nothing new or refreshing. That’s why Kanye pops off and goes to the top. I present people with an alternative too. It’s fresh. It’s a new sound. But people can relate to me. I’m talking about the struggle. I’m talking about pain. And pain to me is like my friend. It’s the most honest thing. Pain never let me down. I know what to expect from pain. It’s going to **to perform an anatomical sexual impossibility**ing hurt. It ain’t like nothing else. A snitch nigga might lie. A friend might let you down. Your gun might jam. A car might break down. Pain and struggle going to be the same all the time. That ain’t a disappointment at all. I already know what to expect from that. So all my records come from that perspective, what I’m dealing with in the inside. I’m a realist. Hopefully, my records will influence in a positive way. Everything I say ain’t going to be positive, because I ain’t here to be a role model. I’m not perfect. I’m going to express myself. I’m going to tell you the negative and positive. I’m going to give people something they can hold onto. They’ll feel some time of emotion. I will inspire emotion or reaction. Kind of like Pac. That’s why I was feeling what he did. When he spoke, you listened and felt a way about what he was saying. I think a lot of music today lacks that. A lot of people make a record for the radio or to sell. I make what I feel and hopefully, everybody relates.
