Gruf began his hip-hop career as a member of a Winnipeg group called Twisted Spirits in the early 1990’s. This group evolved into the Frek Sho, and in 1995 they filmed a video for “Patience”, which entered rotation on Canada’s Muchmusic, a first for a Winnipeg hip-hop group. His interest in health and counter-culture made his teaming with Pip Skid inevitable, and they formed fermented reptile in 1999. In 2001, he released “Druidry”, his solo debut. Gruf is by far the most abstract rapper on the roster, commonly rapping about trees, plants and animals. 8th years after his last release, entitled “Hopeless” (Peanuts and Corn) we soon drop “2 Sense Squared”, a new amazing record on Marathon of Dope.
