Gangstagrass is a multi-racial group of string pickers and MCs allowing for a unique opportunity to create shared cultural space for dialogue and connection between folks that usually never intersect. With “Ain’t No Crime”, the third single off their much anticipated ‘No Time For Enemies’, their most collaborative track breaks loose and runs across genre lines with abandon. The song has quintessential Country elements and classic Hip Hop adrenaline, interwoven with Rock, R&B and Pop.
Blending Bluegrass, electro beats and Hip-Hop seems like an unlikely recipe for success, but that mix has taken Gangstagrass to the top of the Bluegrass charts. Their recent live album spent almost 20 weeks in the Top Ten. The band packs concert halls, Rock and Country music clubs and festivals with impressive live shows, featuring their hybrid of Jam Band improvisation, prodigious Bluegrass chops, and socially conscious rapping.
Best known as the Emmy-nominatd makers to the hit FX drama Justified, Gangstagrass is now back with its fourth official album, the aptly-titled,American Music. Released in April 2015, American Music has done what no other Gangstagrass album has done before, charting on Billboard for the first time. Reaching Number 5 on the Bluegrass Charts, American Music debuted on the charts in only its first week of release.
