Gangstagrass Redefines American Roots in No Depression


MC and Rench live shotRench, the innovative producer behind the bluegrass/hip-hop band, Gangstagrass, sits down with No Depression to talk about influences, staying true to ones roots and the importance of feeling in music.

A daring blend of innovative modern swagger and classic Americana cool, Gangstagrass' sophomore album Rappalachia bridges the gap between two classic American genres: hip hop and country. "I know that, aside from the people who say “I like country and I hate hip-hop” or “I like hip-hop but I hate country,” those appear to be the extreme cases. There are a lot of people out there who have Johnny Cash and Jay-Z on the playlists on their iPod," says Rench. There aren't many bands who can define an entire genre of music the way Gangstagrass has and will continue to do.
