Gus & Misc. | Grown Ups | Album


Gus and Misc. set about an unconventional method for making an album, the results are Grown Ups.

Producer Gus created the music for this collaborative album in its entirety. He created the feel of the release, made the beats, set the track order and once done, he sent it to Misc. Having had no input into the musical side at all he set about writing lyrics and forming songs from each of the tracks. The result is Grown Ups, and it’s pretty damn good too.


 

Mighty Misc. & Gus Woolery Release “GROWN UPS” Like if Mac Lethal and MF Doom had a kid who grew up standing too close to the microwave. What happens when you take the cash, clothes and cars out of Hip Hop? What are you left with sans the pimps and bitches, hoes and tricks? The answer is grown ups. Yes, “Grown Ups,” the thing most rappers need to become, as well as the title of Mighty Misc. and producer Gus Woolery’s new album. “Grown Ups” focuses on the endearing aspects of what it means to leave your childhood behind, get a job, move in with your girlfriend, embrace what you’ve got and realize you’re turning into your parents.

 

Mighty Misc and Gus Woolery are the Postal Service of the rap world. To make the unheard of conceptual collaborative project, “Grown Ups,” Gus created the music for the entire album, front to back, without any communication with Misc. or input regarding style, tempo or number of the beats. Once he was done, Gus mailed the disc of instrumentals to Misc., who then laid down all the lyrics exactly as the songs were pre-arranged without any consultation from Gus. The result is one of the most easily relatable rap records for normal people like us, free from all the shootouts and trap-houses we never find the time to visit anymore. “Grown Ups” is as funny and approachable as it is subtly profound.
