Groggs, who rapped under the name Stepa J. Groggs, began collaborating with Injury Reserve’s Nathaniel Ritchie sometime circa 2012, when Groggs was working at a Vans store run by Ritchie’s mother.
As they bonded over music, Groggs became a mentor figure for Ritchie, who was still a teenager at the time. After producer Parker Corey came into the fold, they solidified into a trio with Groggs and Ritchie rapping over Corey’s increasingly futuristic beats.
The trio built up a following in Arizona’s DIY scene and the online rap underground, releasing a string of acclaimed mixtapes and EPs and eventually signing to Loma Vista for last year’s self-titled debut album. Their most recent release was a trio of standalone tracks early this year called “Hoodwinked” and “Waste Management,” and “Rock N Roll.”
