The rap trio from Phoenix have started the year off with a bang, dropping track Jawbreaker in January and following it up with Jailbreak The Tesla feat. Amine and Koruna Lime.
Injury Reserve, who recorded their debut mixtape in a dentist’s office and titled it Live from the Dentist Office, have had an interesting journey from the USA suburbs. From playing house shows to being played on Beats 1 Radio by Ebro. How did it all happen? What makes producer Parker Corey and rappers Stepa J. Groggs and Ritchie With a T special?
For Complex, it’s their boundary-pushing, and “DIY weirdness”. For Billboard, their fashion sense and
fearless honesty. Pigeons and Planes admires their group dynamic, calling them “one of the best new groups in hip-hop” while Mass Appeal nods to their cinematic vision. Anthony Fantanos interest in their ability to balance tradition with innovation is well-documented on the Needle Drop, where he published 8/10 reviews of Live from the Dentist Office.
Fresh off the back of a huge SXSW, Injury Reserve dropped their debut album on May 17th.
