So whats good fam? 
 
Grand Arch
Yo Evo what the deal glad to be on. 
 
Evo
Myself and The True skateboard mag are stoked to have a chance to sit down with you.
 
Evo
So how did you get hooked up with B-Real?
 
Grand Arch
Well it was a matter of skills and a couple of bills. “The Harvest” is comprised is of myself and 19 other talented artists from across the globe. I was sent a beat from Grammy award winnning super producer Jake Turner, then I got to work. I flew out to LA and met in the studio with the legend. His protege Young De led me through the entry and history began!
Evo
Word up bro thats dope I bet that was a hell of an experience
 
Evo
So what’s artists in the game are you listening these days new or old?
 
Grand Arch
Well I vary from time to time, but I find myself coming back to familiar classics like Rakim, Wu Tang, and Dilated Peoples. As far as newness the oversees European scene seems to have a stronghold in the overall soundscape for Hip Hop with teams Like Snowgoons, Grim Reaperz and Hitfarmers.
 
Evo
Nice
 
Evo
Emcee or Producer first and what got you into the game?
 
Grand Arch
It crazy cause I’m definetly known for the Rhymes but production is the real reason I got into Hip Hop. At an early age of 13 I was already tinkering with Rebirth and it just progressed into Reason and Ableton and more. But eventually I had to drop my own flavor on the instrumentals. I developed skill living in Denver and moved north.
 
Evo
Do you work with any artists in your area ?
 
Grand Arch
O you know this, Evolution is my go to guy ass well as having some earlier production credits on DnE frist album By All Means with also had a (Making) Dent s. Colorado has even been a part of my destiny growing up in NM this was always a destination and now that I’m here it feels like a permanent vacation.
