The lyrics of Carter and Jones are at times playful,
poignant and even challenging. The use of metaphors and abstractions
will have listeners rewinding the tape again and again to grab the
deeper meaning in their diction. In an industry of stunts, blunts,
and 40's, GRITS proves to be a Hip Hop anomaly. If there is a theme
woven through the tapestry of GRITS, it's the honest exploration
of our personal nature and the need for faith in God.
"I really think there is a deeper aspect to
the problems we go through as people," Carter explains, "a
spiritual aspect that goes way below the surface. We try to approach
our music and lyrics with that in mind, and hopefully, through our
art form, we can relay a different solution to today's issues."
