Grind Hard Vol. 1: Why Would I Leave? by Trigga Da Don is a polished and enjoyable hip-hop/rap CD. On the CD, Trigga brings out a Southern rap style in songs that relate to street life, poverty, political views, and other social issues. After listening to the fast, clear, and well-syncopated lyrics on this CD, you'll know why Trigga earned his name. The songwriting, production and recording quality on this CD are all solid. In fact, Trigga complements his thoughtful lyrics, with a strong backing beat and interesting sound effects, like the church bells and race car on Bout Da Action. Furthermore, the choruses are melodic and memorable, including the vocals in the chorus of In My Room. One word of caution, with its healthy dose of profanity, this is a CD for mature audiences. Fans of hip/hop-rap and artists such as 2Pac, will enjoy this CD.
