Lost, and have no idea what a “grilchy” is? You’re not a lone, thankfully MarQ broke it down for Kevin Nottingham back in 2011.
Grilchy is like my style, the people around me’s style. It’s grimy and filthy. Even when we clean, we still do grilchy shit. When you go to a bar and you see a chick that’s with her man and you end up bagging her and walking out, that’s grilchy. And that’s happened in real life. We used to go in spots like stores and shit and get whatever we wanted to get, that’s grilchy. The rhyme style, when scrunch your face up off of some shit somebody said in their rhymes, that’s grilchy. It’s the whole persona, but at the same time, it’s not looking grilchy. You not looking like a bum where you got dirty shit on you. You supposed to be kind of sharp, dress kind of sharp. But your mind state, what you do is grilchy.
