Their hit singles, Take a Knee and NY-PHI, have been tearing up college rap radio charts and they are about to release their debut album, Sport of the Gods, on April 17th. During our chat, Tribeca and Grand Agent talk about their pasts, their passions as they continue to work on their craft, and their experience and insight on the evolution of music and the biz.
