Brooklyn, New York's very own hip hop and rap artist Grisly BK is a rising star who's setting his sights on making an impact in the industry. Paper Chaser Magazine described him as an "artist who delivers his words with an aggressive hunger and gritty voice tone, yet still holding remarkable clarity. It is an actual  "emotion"  determination to be recognized for talent I have not had the pleasure of hearing in a while." He recently released a single "Since Day One" ft Zoorz Glorius, to build anticipation for his upcoming E.P scheduled for release in the spring of 2018. 

Grisly BK aka John McLaughlin was born on September 8th, 1977 in Far Rockaway Queens, New York. His parents moved him to Brooklyn at a very young age. He states that "growing up in Brooklyn was tough. I had the streets on one hand and a bible in the other. Music helped me convey my story. I was handed the streets and at the same time belief." Even though he was developing his skills as a lyricist during his high school years, working in professions such as carpentry and as a truck driver took priority. It was only recently that he began pursuing music as a profession, stating that music had always been that medium but now he had found a way to make the creative process also therapeutic.. He cites The Notorious BIG, Eminem, Kool G Rap, Future, Migos and Young Jeezy as influences and pioneers in music. 
To date, Grisly BK has released two mixtapes, one single and has an E.P scheduled for release in 2018. He has performed at Nuyorican Poets Café and The Five Spot in Brooklyn. He is currently wrapped in promotional activities to support the recently released single and is planning a regional tour in 2018 to promote the upcoming E.P.
