‘Generation 01000001′ – E. Grizzly [mixtape]
Generation A is a free mix by E. Grizzly written to the production of RJD2. All the songs on Generation A are remixed, rearranged versions of RJD2 beats with E. Grizzly dropping his poetic, philosophical lyricism on top. It’s E. Grizzly’s 3rd mix release with Philly Kid Group in the past 16 months. Generation A was recorded and mixed by producer 9th Element at PKG Studios in Philadelphia.
“I feel obligated to write these songs,” says E. Grizzly. “I just want to share what helped me get through all the psychological bullshit in my life. Hopefully the songs can help someone else get through the same things I dealt with. The RJD2 beats just happened to fit perfectly with what I was writing.” To check out this mix you can visit E-Grizzly.com and go to free downloads or click on the Bandcamp link below.
E. Grizzly is an alternative hip hop artist from Philadelphia, PA specializing in a philosophical, poetic flow similar to Mos Def, Lupe Fiasco, Immortal Technique, and Zach De La Rocha.

Grizzly has released 5 mix tapes and albums since 2010. His first release was a hip hop/rock album with the alternative band Alukard from Miami, FL. E. Grizzly and Alukard played over 100 shows including a Jagermeister Tour with rock bands Pepper and Pennywise. E. Grizzly’s last release was an Alternative Hip hop experiment with the punk band 1994! in Philadelphia. He also has mixtapes dedicated to the production of El-P and RJD2.
