Pioneering Christian hip-hop duo Grits remembered at Gotee Records ceremony
CELEBRATING their 25th year, Gotee Records recently recognised the
label's first RIAA Platinum certification for the hip-hop duo Grits' song "Ooh Ahh"
that features TobyMac from the 2002 album, 'The Art Of Translation'.
The song, which never had a music video nor was a radio single, was
used on the big screen in The Fast And The Furious: Toyko Drift and
Big Momma's House 2. It was also the theme song to the two seasons of
MTV's The Buried Life. Those placements in film and TV propelled the
song in digital track sales to a RIAA Gold certification in 2014 and
has continued to grow in streaming. The opinions expressed in this article are
