Getter seems like the kind of dude who never stops working. He got signed to Datsik’s label Firepower Records back in 2012 and he hasn’t stopped making moves since. Over the past 5 years he’s performed and collaborated with some of the biggest names in electronic music, but working with the likes of Skrillex and Boregore wasn’t all that Tanner had in mind to do.
He began running a clothing company called Trippy Burger with Nick Colletti and even debuted his own label called Shred Collective this year.
The first track to premiere on Shred Collective was a Getter banger called “Inhalant Abuse”. A month later a new track appeared on the Shred Collective social media. It was a simple music video with a guy in a ski mask rapping over what sounded like a heavily Dre influenced instrumental. The track was called “Uppercuts” and rumors began to circulate about who the masked emcee was. The vocal pitch and delivery left a lot of people convinced it was Danny Brown until they saw the video and realized the guy was white. Could it be Getter? Nick Colletti?
Well, for those who pay attention, Tanner has been pretty open about trying his hand at hip hop and “knowing how to do this better than any of these motherfuckers.”
Just yesterday, Terror Reid released a new video titled “Chernobyl”. It’s the first time we see him appear without a mask and for any of those doubting, it is indeed Getter.
This instrumental is extremely west coast influenced (no surprise) and once again his delivery is impressive. This is also the first time we’re seeing Terror Reid tackle more serious topics, raising questions about organized religion.
In a recent interview with Sidewalk Talk he had this to say about what he’s going to bring to the table with this project:
“I wanna make the old dudes sound new and the new dudes sound old. I wanna bring back to the good shit, because the new shit is cool but it’s not hip hop, dude — it’s rap. That’s cool, rap about your lean and your fucking Xanax and how much money you get, but at the end of the day I make shit that I wanna hear and that’s it.”
