He's been writing rhymes since the age of 12 and performing since he was 16. This makes C-Grimey a young but experienced artist. Inspired by everyday life, history and cultural struggle, C-Grimey's lyrical content is often un-predictable, but always satisfactory. His music deals with everything from street tales to political issues. His lyrics will have you thinking as you bob your head, (even if it's subconsciously).  C-Grimey is the Co-Founder and C.E.O. of Goldfinger Production$ and although he is in beginning stages of building the company, he has great hopes of future growth.
