DJ Mr President releases new single ‘We Grind Harder’ feat. Otis Clapp

The DJ and producer of hip hop and dance music known as DJ Mr President has released his latest official single, “We Grind Harder.” The single features fellow artist Otis Clapp and has an approximate total listening time of three minutes. It has been proudly published as an independent release without the involvement of the corporate music industry on the Run It Back Records, LLC music label. Popping, thumping, and with live hooks you can’t get out of your head, “We Grind Harder” showcases DJ Mr President and Otis Clapp as two heavy-hitting artists for fall 2018 and beyond.

The Tri-State Area’s DJ Mr President and Otis Clapp cite as main artistic influences Parliament Funkadelic, Jimi Hendrix, James Brown, and “other funk, soul and rock influences.” DJ Mr President’s own sound bears elements of each of these, but hip hop fans will immediately hear echoes from the old-school in “We Grind Harder,” as well as some of the best attributes from the 1990s. With an emphasis on clean beats, killer hooks, and carefully crafted rhymes and lines, “We Grind Harder” by DJ Mr President and Otis Clapp has a little something for everybody.

Asked to describe the overall meaning of “We Grind Harder,” DJ Mr President writes, “’We Grind…’ is a bold statement on not conforming to what is socially acceptable but to continue being dedicated to one’s own artistry. As artists, we are continuously working on our craft. Our single is about always concentrating on putting out quality music, staying true to who you are, and working hard.”
