A week ago, I left my backpack at a restaurant and someone walked off with it. I was sure I wouldn't get it back, which especially sucked since it had my rap notebook [containing approximately a full album's worth of material] in it. I came to peace with the fact that I was going to have to reconstruct some of the songs and give up on some of them. And then, this morning, the restaurant called me. They tracked down my backpack with everything still in it.

So... all of 2015's projects are back on track.

Probably nothing is streamed. The first one is a novelty slam at the Cantab. I don't know if all the teams have been announced for NorthBeast; I've just been coordinating with the Providence team about getting there.

Introduction
Marshall "Gripp" Gillson is a nerd by day and a rapper/poet by day also. He was born in Providence, RI and is studying toward a Master’s degree in Computer Science at the Georgia Institute of Technology. He has released three independent LPs, two mixtapes, and several compilation albums. In 2011, he officially founded glassEyeballs, an independent record label, and is currently developing a fourth solo album. He has been an active slam poet for four years, and has been a member of both Atlanta-area slam teams and the Salt City Slam team. He placed second in the annual Utah State Arts Festival Slam in 2008 and logged a top-ten finish in the 2009 Arkansas Grand Slam. His crowning achievement, however, is his first place finish in the 2011 National Poetry Slam Magic: The Gathering tournament. In his spare time, he enjoys arguing, pontificating, and writing biographies in the third person.
