Grand Varsity, "Closer"

Grand Varsity has released their first single Closer

Who is Grand Varsity? The group is comprised of Christian rap artists Mouthpi3ce, Germaine Martel, and Dee Black. The trio has held it down in the genre for several years as solo artists. Now united, the strengths of each member are on full display with their debut record.

Closer is a bar-heavy banger with production by Germaine Martel.

The hard-hitting track is packed with high-level lyricism. Grand Varsity maintains the gospel’s message while trading punchlines and metaphors. The vocal sample accentuates the cadences and puts the off-the-charts emcee skills on full display. HISstory Music Group has come out of the gates with a vengeance in 2023. Closer is a prime example of how the indie label is hitting Christian rap like a whirlwind since its relaunch.

Catch Up on HISstory’s Recent History

Dee Black began setting things up in late 2022 with the release of his latest EP, ‘The Gospel According To’. In addition to the release, Dee also announced a partnership with Intercept Distribution and Universal Music Group. You can get the full info here.

Next, the release of Dee Black’s video “I Used To” was followed by another big announcement for the label. HISstory officially signed artist Thre to its roster bringing yet another respected voice into the fold. The debut release “Fisherman” has been received with critical acclaim.

Next up for HISstory? It is safe to say that everyone will be on the lookout for a project release from Grand Varsity soon.
