to write a review

Kanye West

my main influence
A stunning single, and my main influence. I love R. Shand almost as much as I love myself.

dj blister

rare groove in the making
This boy can sing ! BAM knocked the wax right out of my ears, this is a must for you collection, miss it at your peril! a future rare groove in the making, just what the doctor ordered

Marilyn Manson

U Wanna Be a Grip... Really Grips You In Many Many Ways
U Wanna Be a Grip takes rap to a new level! I was taken into a world of rhymes spit out at micro speed and hydro proximate lucidity. These rhymes grip you and send you into spasmatic convulsions of the cranial cortex. I felt so gripped, and no one can gripe about his spitability!!!

In other words the boy be baaad.....

Thank You R. Shand, I'm gripped and ripped and you are so hip!!!


Man..this is some dope s**t!!
Im from Cali and I be spinnin on the ones and twos and when my boy let me hear this dope joint I just had to have me a copy with the quickness!!

This s**t is pure West Coast meets East Coast and on some Neptunes s**t mixed with my boy JD!!
The boy be up there wit the best of them..yo!!

Dr. Gottaget A. Knutt

Refineded !
Word ya'll. I'm glad homie skipped those music classes to get this CD out. It's raw, uncut, & Bangin G ! Dang...if Shand woulda gone to those classes, his flow mighta been too refineded & sonically correct....and that ain't what's happening in New School. Yo homie...keep finding them 89 & 90th piano keys. Ya Heard !

Sergio Fuchi

Catchy and informative
I don't really like rap music with all the bragging and whatnot but this song is very informative and catchy. It makes being a grip seem very appealing to me.

I wish Mr. Shand all the best in his life and hopefully we'll hear more of him in the future.



R.Shand is the next Marvin Gaye!!!
U Wanna Be A Grip Surely Has A Grip On Me!!!
U Wanna Be a Grip is destined to be an all time soul & pop classic. Whitty lines and catchy hooks really make this song memorable. This CD is Soul Music at it's finest!!! R.Shand is "da bomb"!!!! I recommend this CD to anyone who loves true soul music.


Watch out 50 Cent!!!
Hip-Hop's newest star!!! This song is groundbreaking with it's blend of rock and Hip-Hop, just like "Walk This Way"! Songs like this need to be on the radio because I get tired of hearing 50 Cent, The Game, and Kanye West talking trash when you have undiscovered talent waiting in the wings like R. Shand!!! He makes me want to become a grip. Thanks for music that will outlast what's hot right now, R. Shand!!! BUY THIS!!!!!!

Jack Mehoff

Killer vocals
WOW....killer vocals AND track !! The vocals are better that "Fitty" or Nas....and the track sounds as good, if not better than anything done by Dre' or The Neptunes. Somebody needs to sign this guy QUICK !!

Herbert Collins

To be a Grip is such a trade!
From the heart these words must have come ..you are blessed! ..I have a friend, like you do have, but my one, for a living, digs peat in the West of Ireland to supply the local cottages, who can't get to the local town, for their 'open fires'...no central heating there! I know I'm a bit ahead of myself here, but could you find it in your Heart/Soul to maybe make a song where maybe you could include words like 'Misty' 'Toil/Soil', Soft Rain' or even 'Green Bannanas' ...you could even put the word 'grip' in it ..maybe to liken it like 'gripping his shovel' or something? I know that it would mean so much to him & that you have the talent to do this. It would make his day if I could send him the final product. Keep on doing what you're doin' bro, I'm already gonna send him the 'Grip' song because I worry about him being outdoors all the time and maybe he'll see that there's more to life than bending over? ..you've got a whole lotta S.O.U.L & a lotta fans out here ..RESPECT!!
