To close out the year, Crossfade is picking its favorite albums by 305 artists. Check out the full list of Miami's Best Albums of 2011.
Over the summer, swag tag-team O'Grime -- Nikolais Javan and L.Rey Reyes -- spit, giggled, and screamed onto the 305's street-level rap scene with a self-titled EP stacked with tracks all about "gettin' gwap and eating tacos."
"We bump swags from all types of cultures," Niko told Crossfade in August, "Celia Cruz to the psychedelic stylings of Pretty Lights."
And L. Rey explained, "We are the new face of Miami Swag. We represent the youth! Everyone can relate to our swag because it comes directly from the heart! Like blood!"

It's so simple, homie. Whether copping "Kush Smoke and Pussy," chasing that "Almighty Dolla," or doin' "Domework," O'Grime is the real ish, a no-bullshit antidote to all that crappy ringtone rap about $30,000 watches.
It's finally time to let our inner griminess shine.
