Mike of Doom - Coolington
Directed by Mish Mosh Films
Mike of Doom finally drops a visual from his coveted Rookie of the Year project that dropped late August. True to the lyrics, Coolington is a cool scenic visual with appearances from tons of friends and relevant artists. Mike of Doom’s flair is on point and bars are too with this clean drop from the 30Whop family. Expect more compelling videos from Mike in the future.
Grazed Co. presents its Whoptober 2013 mix, a first in a series of monthly mixes featuring new and rare music from the 30Whop collective. Premiering on the GRZD Tumblr, this Whoptober mix archives the latest drops from the Whop Family with a couple new rare gems scattered amongst it.
On this months mix, the vibe starts off grimy with the latest GRZD drop from Mike of Doom and Rezt in ‘The Caper’ then progresses to a couple classic bangers in the same vein. Aceology drops by to a pop a couple shots off at naysayers in his latest and keeps the mix hardbody. The second half of the tape is a more musical affair with a spacey Willie Jetts number, a progressive Lance Neptune instrumental and the latest from your local Largo Boyz tandem.
New on this mix is a fresh new cut from Banrond entitled Legacy, a very rare Mike of Doom drop and a package deal with Rezt’s Ghost of the Whop chopped an screwed accompanied by a video. Expect more mixes from GRZD Co. and the 3-0-Whop.

Grazed Co. PresentsThe Caper
Starring Mike of Doom & Rezt
Produced by. Suede Moccasins
As Whop season approaches, Mike of Doom and Rezt prep the first single in an upcoming onslaught of media from the 30Whop family. Produced by Suede Moccasins THE CAPER is a grimy banger in the same vein as last Fall’s DA LICK. THE CAPERis the first preview of Suede Moccasins upcoming GLOCK1999 tape.
Lance Neptune - Umbrella Girl
Lance Neptune is 1/2 of the founding core that creates OSP. Over the time, his production has grown from minimal spacey, percussive driven beats to full fledged worlds of vibrant color and soul. Funky bass-lines give this a slight jazzy touch until the drums bring the knock. The second half is an even more enticing and entracing hypnotic experience with hints of psychedelic soul amidst a cosmic backdrop. He is prepping first album Sound Of Lights and it should surely impress.
Largo Boyz - Miyamoto Cruiser
Largo Boyz is the rap, jazz and electronic duo helmed by Jay Artifact of OSP and Wheelchair Cat of distant foreign lands. Jay Artifact, normally known for his impressive skill and technicality on the mic, is lending his hand at producing with proven beatsmith Wheelchair Cat to create sounds meshing acid-jazz and video game synths into groovy jams. Finally releasing this sneak peak of their future works, the Largo Boyz have a highly anticipated upcoming project on their hands. Did I mention their from the 30Whop too?
Rezt - Ghost of the Whop
30Whop is the setting in this brand new anthem from Rezt produced by Sealab 2012’s Riot Rhythm. Rezt is back with a graduated delivery to his already unique flow. Swerving in and out of melodies over a grim backdrop, Rezt shows you what he’s about these days. Directed by Mish Mosh Films, this grungey visual features 30Whop captains OGK (creator of the term 30Whop) Mike of Doom and Beany ManG. Only a promo from Rezt’s upcoming project, it foreshadows a new movement in the are.
Banrond feat. Young Una - Run That Shit
Banrond is from the 30Whop. He’s with Reggie Boyz and Reggie House Ent. He’s not fluke and his shit goes. If none of this makes sense to you, it will soon. His latest drop is a self-produced creeper featuring Young Una. In regular Whop form, Banrond is breaking and entering, hitting licks an smashing bitches on couches, regular shit. Young Una storms in with a shout-out to the BasedGod and enters full Unafer mode, gliding over the beat and dropping raw line after line.
Banrond - Slidin
In the slow burning 'Slidin' produced by Reggie Boyz bro RiotRhythm, Banrond kicks it with the Reggie Boyz and levels with you. His head is in the clouds as he coasts through this mellow knocker. Admittedly not a stoner, he’s just smoking with his crew and delivering some chill vibes.
Banrond - Riku
But on the Mish Mosh films directed 'Riku' Banrond turns things up and comes through with a excellently produced banger and robs you with no mask on. Banrond’s raps nod to both the anime world and the Maryland (30Whop) culture he’s grown up in. Naruto references are interwined with trap lifestyle and create a unique alternative to typical sex, drugs, money guns rap.
Both of these tracks appear on his four track teaser Kingdom Hearts EP released in April. Banrond is just coming up. But with the 30Whop and Reggie Boyz team, he can get somewhere.
Miles Meraki - Trippin’
If you don’t know Miles Meraki, Miles Meraki is apart of the Grammy Family. A DMV based collective that also calls rMell, Matt McGhee and producer Jaylen! as family. The most laidback and flow focused of the group, Miles hasn’t properly had his time to shine. Trippin aims to expand his vision with all the makings of a hit. Jaylen! provides an ultra smooth soundscape that still manages to keep you bopping along. Miles is no slack on the mic either, finessing the beat with a flow reminiscent of a pimp speaking down on other pimps. Crisp visuals pair with a minimal backdrop, which highlights Miles rapping along a waterfront. Trippin is the first single from Jaylen’s own project CRUMBS, which from what I hear is bound to be epic. The Gram Fam is up next.
