Hailing from Dallas, Grades Of Absolute Truth is a soulful indie hip hop artist who has been writing and creating a unique brand since 2005. The elementary school teacher by day, who released his first album Absolute Truth in 2006, embeds conscious lyricism, self-awareness, & struggle into every performance.
Grades Of Absolute Truth has shared the stage with nationally touring acts, such as Everlast, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Lupe Fiasco, Bubba Sparxxx, Shwayze, Paul Wall, Wax, Hopsin, Rittz, Snow Tha Product, Astronautalis, (hed) P.E., Leon Bridges, The Revivalists, and more. Referred to as the illegitimate child of promiscuous genres, G.O.A.T. pulls inspiration from Brother Ali, Cee-Lo, Grieves, Incubus, Counting Crows, and Stevie Ray Vaughan, showing true diversity in his music.
Grades Of Absolute Truth’s newest release, the senseless ep, explores Justin “G.O.A.T.” Griffith’s experiences during several self-imposed experiments with sensory deprivation. While the EP was entirely produced and written by Griffith and Justin “Double J” Jones, they perform the material with a full band.
A desire to help unify the Dallas-Fort Worth scene for a philanthropic cause arose and Griffith founded Hip Hop Helps Heal (H4) in 2008. In close partnership with organizations, such as The Intelligent South, Bum Theary, and ArtLoveMagic, H4 became a non-profit collective built on the love of hip hop culture. The organization strives to fight the negative stereotypes and connotations often associated with hip hop and seeks to unify like-minded people who are interested in contributing their talents, time, and efforts toward a greater cause.
