Po Politickin Artist Spotlight: Joc Scholar (of Grand Opus) [Podcast]
In this episode of Po Politickin, Po politick’s with Joc Scholar from Grand Opus. Hailing from West Coast, California, hip hop duo Grand Opus emerges in classic emcee/ producer group fashion with a nostalgic and yet futuristic style of their own, aiming to carve their names among the greats with their debut album entitled “Forever”. The group is made up of Oakland, Ca. producer Centric, who has collaborated with hip hop artist’s such as Kool G Rap, Black Rob, Sean Price, Mistah FAB & Swizz Beatz to name a few, with television and film placements on networks and companies such as MTV, VH1, OWN, NFL, and others.
Then we have Joc Scholar, the illuminating emcee out of Fresno, California who laces the beats with his distinct style, lyricism and delivery. The two prior music associates evolved into the group known as Grand Opus in 2013, with an oath to come together and make music from their own mind in an effort to simply help keep Hip Hop alive without any “Pop” pressure.
