On September 16th 30th (NEW DATE), the rap group Grits will be releasing their eighth full-length studio album titled Reiterate.  This upcoming album marks the beginning of a new era for the best-selling crew.  Teron “Bonafide” Carter and Stacy “Coffee” Jones have been recording for the last decade with boutique independent label Gotee Records, but now the emcees are stepping out in faith and launching Revolution Art, an indie label of their own that, they hope, will make more than just hits.  With this album they have created their boldest representation of their craft to date adding new synth and electronic sounds to their rap style.
