Grinders of the Week: AQ the G.O.D. & Don Baptiste

A.Q. the G.O.D.’s new video is not your average video for an up and comer in the industry. It’s got both slow scenes and dynamic ones that fit A.Q. the G.O.D.’s flow like a glove. DONBAPTISTE and G.O.D.’s have done a tight job at finding the perfect scenery to match the vibe of the song. You can clearly feel their chemistry and artistry combine an energy that executes into a compelling visual.

The rapper has some fire lines, coming in with "I will never ever pay em mind, i'm too busy focusing on mine". The heartbreaker will go on with his music without the distraction. An admirable and vulnerable line like "still recording out of section 8", shows his determination and will to go after what he wants regardless of his environment.

We love musicians who are passionate about their craft. Bandanas, Gucci hats, palm trees and rhymes. The rapper flew across the country to boss up with his camera man and came back with a movie. Don Baptiste and the rapper are an incredible team together. Not everybody has the sweat equity for the grind. 



The NYC Grind began as a monthly open mic for all artists in Queens NYC. We have grown to bi-monthly warehouse parties showcasing hundreds of artists to now our very own studio in LIC NY. We provide a platform to artists of all mediums to share their work, meet new people and connect with talents from all over the NYC area. The Grind also connects artists with necessary services such as cinematography, video editing and even sound engineering for artists who want to take their taint to the next level. You have Talent. We host Event.
