Grand Opus – Super Power Bros (single)

Following up from the critically acclaimed ’360° Degrees’ in April, 2017, the California based group Grand Opus have decided to release the fifth single from their criminally under appreciated studio debut ‘Forever.’ Their latest single ‘Super Power Bros’ is the ideal cut selection to highlight Joc Scholar and Centric’s unique synergy together lyrically and sonically, as they exercise their individual super powers as a duo, think Mario / Luigi, Batman / Robin, and Simon / Garfunkel [jokes!], with this unfiltered, hard-hitting single… Hip-Hop in its purest form. For the un-acclimated, Oakland, CA producer Centric, has collaborated with the likes of Kool G Rap, Black Rob, Sean Price, Mistah FAB, Swizz Beatz, and Joc Scholar, a true emcee from Fresno, CA who laced this beat [+ album] with his illuminating bars and delivery, two artists combining to create one entity without boundaries, label politics or restrictions.
In a similar vein to Pete Rock & C.L Smooth, Reflection Eternal, Gangstarr and other legendary Hip-Hop MC / Producer pairings, Grand Opus [Joc Scholar and Centric] emerged in 2015 to form the group, with a nostalgic, yet distinctive sound and style, recently they released their debut album ‘Forever,’ which features Fresno’s Planet Asia, Nas’ Mass Appeal artist Fashawn, and Roc Nation writer / songstress Alicia Renee, who has penned hits for both Rhianna and Ariana Grande. If you haven’t had the chance to hear the album, give it a listen on Soundcloud, and please support on iTunes#grandopus #centric #jocscholar #superpowerbros

J has produced for the Youngbloodz, the Dungeon Family (click here to hear “Fall Back”), has opened for Soulja Boy and has been featured on mixtapes with DJ Scream and DJ Teknikz. J’s last album was Life, Lies & Luxury (stream on Bandcamp), which spawned the single “Livin” (watch the music video). Last summer he released his single “Summer Of Sam” (listen), and released several songs on Soundcloud as part of his Music Mondays series (Soundcloud).

The idea and the creation of the song came from good vibes in the studio,” J says. “I wrote a few different hooks for this track. Recorded all the different hooks and decided this was the one. I really wanted to create something different from my usual. I listened to this track over a hundred times in the process of completing the record. I get picky from time to time when it comes to a song so this should pay off in the long run.
