DJ 3rd Degree’s
Fire Pick of the Week
May 23, 2022

Thanks for continuing to support indie rap music and the Rap Attack DJ’s.
What is good my Hip Hop friends!!?
All is well out here in the CA (All Day!) and we keep it moving forward with positivity. This week I want to give you a heads up on a brand new project from a dope artist out of the Pacific Northwest!

Stacks Image 520878

This week we bring you the hot new album from Seattle’s Hip Hop guru King Khazm. The project is titled “Return of a Mad” (Freshed Chopped Beats/MADK Productions), all produced by Third Eye Bling. If you are not familiar with King Khazm, I hope this review encourages you to go peep it out cause my man has been involved in the culture since 1995 and reps it hard for Seattle and all the PNW. Khazm is a true lyricist and advocate for the culture as the executive director of the 206 Zulu Nation in Seattle. He has been recognized by the community for his efforts to help those in need thru art and music. Khazm also serves on the board of the Seattle Disability Commission, King County (Washington) arts funding group 4Culture, is manager of the historic Washington Hall and runs a label called Fresh Chopped Beats (dope name!).

This project from Khazm is Super Dope. It features some of the dopest emcees such as
Percee P, Afu-Ra, Myka 9, Abstract Rude and the legendary Kurtis Blow. And with that line-up of emcees, you gotta know this album is straight fire and super Hip Hop! All heads will for sure wanna get down on this one. Khazm is a true lyricist and advocate for the culture. No gimmicks or wack rhymes and beats here.

I personally like the joint Khazm does with Afu-Ra and Abstract Rude titled “Power to the People” as well as his song with Def-I and Percee P called “Illa Raps”. Boom bap beats with serious lyrical flows is what you will get from this project.
Go represent Hip Hop by getting this album! You won’t regret it!

Keep it real out there my people!
One love til next time!!
DJ 3rd Degree

Brother Jules from MN’s KMOJ passed away on December 4, 2021. I found that tough to deal wi†h. This brother & I go way back to the first days of NASTYMIX Records. It was Brother Jules who debuted my artist Sir Mix-A-Lot on the MN airwaves of KMOJ. That small act developed into a forever friendship between us. (R.I.P.)
