Wait, so what is Gritty Vibes?

We got you fam.

Gritty Vibes is a platform of dope, up and coming artist, athletes and more. If you’re young and doing anything noteworthy, we want to find you and write about you. Created by Tyrel Hunt, a former Division One hooper turned professional writer, this site is by the culture and for the culture. So if you or someone you know is Gritty enough to be featured, hit up the email and lets talk.


Meet the Gritty Vibes Team!


Ty Hunt – Founder


Creator of the platform, nuff said.

Migale Whyte – Sportswriter



Whyte is the mind behind some of our most popular basketball list and articles. The well connected sportswriter is the most knowledgeable mind for high school hoops in NYC, often getting his news before the major hoop outlets. While his sources are quite mysterious, some how some way he gets his story. One thing is a fact: Migale Whyte’s work speaks for itself.

Terrelle Lue – Videographer


Terrelle Lue has done a fine job behind the camera and the pen, working as a duel threat journalist who is a mainstay in the NYC art community. Lue has brought interviews on actress Amanda Morris and artist such as “My life in yellow” and Ashleigh Sharmaine to the site as well as offered his hand in several other projects. If you are looking to find some underrated talent in the city, Terrelle Lue is your guy.

Travion January – Music curator/Social media manager

The Mississippi native has brought a diverse array of artists to the platform, using his keen eye for talent to bring some of the most underrated musicians in the deep south to Gritty Vibes. He also runs our Twitter, which he uses to find and reach out to up and coming acts. Travion has been a big part of our expansion into the South, and a vital asset to our music department.

Amanda Morris – Model/actress/ambassador

Morris has been a jack of all trades for Gritty Vibes, making a smooth transition from our interview subject to a key component in our success. She starred in our first ever short film (Which we believe went on to inspire a scene in HBO’s Insecure), and has also modeled each and every Gritty Vibes shirt there is. She’s helped us sell merchandise both through her social media promotion and at events. Amanda is the undoubtedly the personality of the platform.
