Blending bluegrass and hip-‐‐hop may seem like an unlikely recipe for success, but don't tell that to Rench, the mastermind behind the Emmy-‐‐nominated bluegrass/hip-‐‐hop outfit Gangstagrass. Back when Rench was in grade school, recess was a time for breakdancing on cardboard to RUN-‐‐DMC. But at home, his parents were playing Willie Nelson and Johnny Cash records on the stereo. That musical mash up made a lasting impression on Rench, which he finally put to good use after spirited him on a journey to play country-‐‐flavored hip-‐‐hop at venues all over the globe.
