Grits is a talented duo propelled by the skills of Teron "Bonafied" Carter and Stacy "Coffee" Jones. Previous efforts garnered Grits exposure on BET and helped establish the hip-hop act as one to definitely watch. On this fourth album, Carter and Jones continue to serve up intriguing beats and thought-provoking rhymes that reflect their views on life and particularly their faith in God. As Grits continues to gain steam in the mainstream world, it would have been easy to water down this message, but the duo displays the courage of its convictions. Highlights include the energetic opener "Here We Could," the autobiographical "Tennessee Bwoys," and "Ooh Aah." Gotee labelmates Jennifer Knapp and Knowdaverbs are featured, respectively, on "Believe" and "Video Girl." Each track reverberates with personality and passion—essential traits that should serve these gifted young artists well as they continue to expand their musical boundaries. Contact 615-370-2980.—DEP
