Grind Mode Cypher – “Only the Real” ft. O.T. the Real, Chester Green & FNX


Also featuring Most Valuable & Ohms this incredible Grind Mode edition is produced by Lingo and directed by WiseGuy Films. 

Its hard to deny the talent and swag in every element of this particular Grind Mode Cypher, featuring Philly Phenom OT THE REAL.

From a lyrical perspective, each artist brings their own method of cadence, placement and metaphor throughout their 16, yet the joint flows evenly from artist to artist and goes hard from front to back.

Looking at the video and camera work itself, this is most definitely one of Grind Mode’s best backdrops for a cypher, and that scenery is well complimented by the excellent camera work being done by Wiseguys Films.

The instrumental compliments the fire punchlines from Lingo and FNX, while evenly supporting the flows of Most Valuable and Ohms. Massachusetts native and Grind Mode mainstay Chester Green flips the beat on its head with an array of interior rhymes and metaphors, only to be followed by a murderous verse by the one and only O.T. the Real.

O.T. goes ham and creates a vivid picture with his word choice, and uses amazing fluidity to deliver his rock solid punchlines.

Front to back, this is undoubtedly an impressive cypher, and an incredible representation of various forms of creative talent and hip hop artistry. This is one of those joints that may indeed be under appreciated in its initial release, but looking back, I anticipate this to stand out as not only one of the best Grind Mode Cyphers ever, but one of the most impeccable hip hop cyphers to come out in years. (Yeah I said it).
