Poetic aka Grym Reaper (Gravediggaz) Releases New Music from Grave. Wu-Tang News
July 16, 2014
Wu-international site has been on stand by for a while now due to renovation and reconstruction of the site, but only one thing sees fit to make me want to post up anything up, , the Wu reunion was huge but everyone knew about it and with the bickering and disagreements there was no need coming online to post it up, releases of new Wu related albums which have been slow this year by the way didn't tempt me either, and as I ponder on doing a tribute to a fallen soldier, I get an email from Shabazz the Disciple that the widow of Poetic aka Grym Reaper wanted to get in touch to collaborate on a well deserved commemoration of Poetics anniversary of his death, I quickly jumped on that opportunity, mainly because I am a big fan of the man and his music, a fan of Gravediggaz.
It's a shame one tends to appreciate a gift when they lost it, The Wu fans always hailed Poetic as a lyrical genius who like ODB had such a unique style and voice that no one has come close to emulate or sound like today, a great loss not just to the Wu fans or hip-hop but to music and a generation today who think Odd Future started horrorcore. What made Poetic unique apart from his unique flow and lyrics and his positive message? Poetic was also a producer and had other projects in different alter ego where he displayed different styles, in addition, I gathered some inside information that he also had other groups outside of Gravediggaz as well as solo projects. What makes this article and dedication very important and relevant today is that his Deedee (Poetics wife) had also come forth to inform the fans as her main aim is honor Poetics memory the right way to remind people of his accomplishment but also to the delight of any fan also introduce them to music to come, and also to correct many of the misinformation that have been circulating the internet over the years. Interesting we asked for a snippet which unfortunately was not possible within the short notice but exclusively covered some key points with DeeDee who was kind enough to share all with the fans after years of silence.
Poetic departed on the 15th of July 2001, 13 years ago lets all celebrate his legacy which will live on .
