Hip-Hop, Mixtapes | Ground Up – The Get Up [Mixtape]

Posted by on March 9, 2012

I’ll be honest, this mixtape hit me like a bag of bricks.  I didn’t know it was coming and I certainly wasn’t expecting this thorough of a project.  Now 10 mixtapes deep, Ground Up has faded on and off my radar but after hearing their last project, “The Get Down” and this one “The Get Up” it’s evident I need to pay more attention to the Philly duo.  “Skill over Swag” is the motto Azar and Malakai have coined and ran with, meaning substance over conforming to sell records.  I really think this tape is their best yet and all aspects of their delivery have greatly improved; from the ground up.  With production from Teddy Roxpin, Jahlil Beats, & of course Bij Lincs as well as features from Freeway, Young Chris, among others, there’s a good variety of subgenre’s featured.
