DJ KAZZEO’s
Fire Pick of the Week

June 27, 2022

Thanks for continuing to support indie rap music and the Rap Attack DJ’s.

What’s up world?
DJ Kazzeo steppin’ in for my man DJ 3rd Degree who’s off enjoying some sun on a tropical beach this week. With less than 24 hours notice, I knew I had to find something super dope to hip you to. I think this should suffice.

After a 13 year break, NWA founding member MC Ren returns with “Osiris.” With Tha Chill of Compton’s Most Wanted providing the beats, Ren delivers an eight song banger. One thing that caught me right away was that while still maintaining the same intensity of previous releases, Ren has seemingly gained a stronger delivery with more of a finesse approach. My best explanation is by comparing it to the old joke about the young bull and the father bull on a hill. Whereas Ren used to run down the hill trying to bang one of the cows grazing below, he now walks down the hill and bangs them all.
The combination of Ren’s finessed cadence and Tha Chill’s solid production fits perfectly. On “The News” Ren provides a list of do’s and do not’s while visiting Los Angeles. On “Keep It Gangsta” he rocks an excellent slow flow style filled with modern references and even a quick tongue-twister spot. A nice treat comes at the end where we hear a classic clip from the late legend
Mixmaster Spade.
Ren flows over a tremendous piano loop on the title track “Osiris.” “Fire” finds Ren teaming up with
Kurupt for a standout track. Another standout is “The Anthem,” featuring a Southern Cali all-star line up including Ras Kass, Cold 187um, Jayo Felony and J-Dee from Da Lench Mob. My favorite track? “Time,” where Ren seems to get really introspective and shows his writing depth.
IMO out of 8 tracks, there’s only one that could have been left off. A pretty damn good percentage if you ask me.
If you’re a true West Cast Hip Hop fan, this one right here is can’t miss. Go check it out. You won’t be disappointed.

I think this is an album you will want to peep out so go check it and nod that head!
Keep it real out there my people!
One love til next time!!

RAP ATTACK’s PICK HIT MOVIE OF THE WEEK

Stacks Image 521242

It's very rare when a sequel can touch or even come close to the original. "TOP GUN MAVERICK" does. After 35 plus years it still has the magic & action as the original did. Val Kilmer even makes a cameo appearance!
You will love it! Two thumbs up.
