The group is made up of Oakland, CA producer “Centric”, who has produced for artist’s such as Kool G Rap, Black Rob, MURS, Sean Price, Crooked I, Product G&B (Santana’s “Maria Maria”) & Swizz Beatz to name a few. Then we have Joc Scholar, the illuminating emcee out of Fresno, California who laces the beats with his distinct style, lyricism and delivery. The two prior music associates evolved into the group known as Grand Opus in 2013, with an oath to come together and make music from their own mind in an effort to simply help keep Hip Hop alive without any “Pop” pressure.
