@Kreyolicious The athletic coach Larry Bird once said, “A winner is someone who recognizes his God-given talents, works his tail off to develop them into skills, and uses these skills to accomplish his goals.” The artist known as Mecca aka Grimo is such an individual. An actor, he has starred in films like Kidnappings, and acted in the stage morality tale “When Good Men Are Tempted”. With the artist’s participation in that theater production, he wants well-intentioned husbands and boyfriends everywhere to know that he sympathizes with their struggles to remain true to their spouses and significant others.
A life coach—Mecca aka Grimo motivates students living in the inner cities about self-esteem, character-building, and settling conflicts without having to resort to weapons or fists. A community leader, he devotes himself to Children’s Hope Chest of Dreams, a non-profit he created.
A spoken-word artist, he creates relatable and meaningful rhymes that promote pride and self-reliance. As a hip-hop artist, he bounces with natural swagger in the video “We Dem Zoes”, alongside fellow rappers Stichiz, Grimass, Jimmy Dade, and Billy Blue.
Ask around, and you’ll be told that Mecca aka Grimo is considered one of the pioneers of an earlier wave of the genre known as Hip-Hop Kreyol. ———————————————————————————————————————— http://kreyolicious.com/mecca-aka-grimo-using-hip-hop-build-community/16208/
