Gregory Phillips (born September 11, 1971), better known by his stage name Grap Luva, is an American record producer and rapper from Mount Vernon, New York. The younger brother of Pete Rock, he began his career by making guest appearances on both studio albums by Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth in the early 1990s. He later became a member of the Pete Rock-led group InI, but their album Center of Attention was shelved in 1995. He closed out the 1990s by producing songs for Pete Rock, J-Live, Kombo, Profile and former fellow InI member Rob-O.
