Abstract Mindstate

Greg “Olskool Ice-Gre” Lewis has made his mark as a Hip Hop artist coast to coast and his music has been recognized and heralded internationally. On August 6, 2021, Abstract Mindstate released their first full-length studio album in 16 years. The project received very positive reviews from music critics, industry and hype beast publications as well as podcasts. Titled “Dreams Still Inspire,” the album was produced in full by Ye (formally Kanye West) and it remains to be the first and only release from his YZY SND (Yeezy Sound) imprint. In 2022, Olskool (along with his group) embarked on a domestic tour with Detroit Hip Hop legends Slum Village to showcase their new work. Abstract Mindstate continues to be heralded for their dynamic live show, which has been consistently praised throughout the group’s career. Although the album didn’t make the official ballot, “Dreams Still Inspire” received Grammy Consideration from the Recording Academy for “Best Rap Album” and “Album of The Year.” The 2nd official single “Move Yo Body” received Grammy Consideration for “Song of The Year” and “Best Rap Performance.” Dreams Still Inspire was selected as Album of the Year (AOTY), by various online music sites, and A Wise Tale, the official first single and music video released from the album, won a Hollywood Music and Media Award (HMMA) in November 2021 for Best Independent Music Video.
