underground hip hop (12)

5887225867?profile=RESIZE_710x

Rapper and producer Az Izz, formerly of legendary New Jersey group The Outsidaz, returns with the self produced AA side single "Ghetto" b/w "Crazy" out today, the third from his new album "Dopeliss" releasing through New Dawn Records on July 3rd.
 
Together with Pacewon, Young Zee, Rah Digga and D.U., the Brick City crew were noted for their work with The Fugees, Wu Tang and a new emerging force from Detroit at the time, D12.  More recently pursuing a career in tv, film and sports music production, Az marks his arrival back with a first major solo offering in several years which blends the sounds of hip hop through the ages.       
 
On "Ghetto", the classic sound of the east coast prevails through guitar hooks and blaring brass on journeys to the gritty underbelly of the city, bars portraying street tales from the hood in the daily battle between survival and aspiration. Meanwhile on "Crazy", aptly named for these times, heavy kicks and electronica fuel the adrenaline of a chaotic Brick City ride accompanied by fellow group member D.U. 
 
Available to stream & download on all major digital platforms including Soundcloud

5458638454?profile=RESIZE_710xReleased today through New Dawn Records, the explosive new album "God of Barz" by Brick City's lyrical marksman Tru Trilla.

Planting a flag for both the Garden State and the classic east coast sound, the veteran rapper and Lords of the Underground affiliate has concocted an immense piece of work, rammed full of passionate bars, skillful wordplay and intelligent rhymes.  Championing the cause of the underdog, the disengaged and the traditional values of hip hop itself while tackling political tensions of racial profiling, corruption and deprivation, knockout lines are delivered with the ferocity of a prize fighter.  Newark natives Middy Murdock, Fly Kwa, Confucious and fellow 050 Boyz member Prince Ak are the featured artists, intensifying the energy with their own gritty lyricism.
 
The production brings extra layers and dynamics courtesy of Chicago's DNA Beatz, Barcelona's Sumerio Square, the UK's Chat One and award winning Clinton Place (aka Jamal Nueve), originally of New Jersey and now resident in Los Angeles.   Rugged, raw and hardwired into the psyche of the street, this one's for the heads.

5051634457?profile=RESIZE_710xBrick City rapper & producer Az Izz of the legendary Outsidaz crew is on the comback trail with his new album "Dopeliss" releasing through New Dawn Records on July 3rd

Following on from last month's 'Gettin' It', new single "Nunya" released today is produced by another Newark native Qua Z Mo.  A fuel injected electro banger powered by heavy 8080 kicks, Az is on the front foot from the outset, packing the verbal artillery the targets are placed in the sights and gauntlets thrown down through a series of combative rhymes and punchline bars.  Stoking the fires, this is pure heat for the streets.
