Cayoz gives us the visual to his latest track Fire & Ice. He puts picture to canvas so to speak as he narrates the intimate complexities of being in a relationship with someone of the opposite personality and demeanor.
Very few give music this kind of depth, that’s why continue to showcase his talents as an artist.
Keep checking back with HHD for more music from Cayoz!
Cayoz is back to releasing personal fire in 2018. Fire & Ice features production from long time collaborator O*Zee and vocals of Phoenix Pagliacci. The music is the perfect mixture for Cayoz’ subject matter of relationships, and the good and bad that comes when you encounter people of different mindsets. Each verse relates a different aspect of how opposing mental forces mingle together. It’s clever and relatable, and memorable.
Cayoz delivers us another heater with an assortment of ill emcees. It’s a unique blending of Baltimore styles with Ill Conscious, Raf Almighty, and Bamboo each spitting some ill sixteens. Its actually these diverse stylings that make this track all the more interesting. We’ll, that and the underutilized OZee’s production.
This new single from Cayoz will inevitably have you nodding your head and snapping those fingers. Out The Box is a complete hip hop party for you ears. Cool FD puts together some of his best work for this track with the jazzy flavor, horns, and pianos. It’s layer after layer of musical dopeness. Then you’ve got Grazzhoppa chopping up an old school Slick Rick sample amongst others making it even more memorable. Cayoz, Vandalyzm, and Add-2 each drop a dope 16 to make this song stick with you.
Hip Hop Dependency family, Cayoz, is back with a new single that is simply put…fuego. He’s teaming up with producer O*Zee (who is a dope emcee by the way) and Mayhem and Revalation of EMS. It’s a union of dopeness. Then you got Jabbathakut chopping it up, making this the sure shot.
Relay on the mic!
Finally, Cayoz has dropped his long awaited album, Beyond The Moniker. In truth I have been waiting for this album for over a year at this point. But it was definitely worth the wait.
Throughout the album, Cayoz shows the multiple facets of himself, with my favorite aspect being his interpersonal messages. He once again puts the thoughts and feelings that we all go through into brilliantly orchestrated music. Leave Me Alone, is the perfect example of what I am talking about. Who doesn’t feel the need to be left alone at some point?
Cayoz maintains his streak of dropping meaning full bars that we showcase on HHD. This is just smart hip hop music as Cayoz and D2A buck the trend of being labelled a ‘Lost Generation’ over some sublime production from O*Zee.
I am still however waiting for his EP to drop. Ahem.
New Cayoz material, and this time he brought a few friends to rock over some Spanish influenced hip hop production. I didn’t realize that Cayoz’s production skills were so refined either. He definitely put together something proper with Letras Liquidos. One of the things that has been a MO of Cayoz is the fact that he puts together thought provoking music. But what gets lost in the translation sometimes is just how technically gifted he is as an emcee. Sageinfinie and P Hill The Genesis both make solid contributions with their verse as well. And what can I say, that I have not already about DJ Grazzhoppa? I will say it again though for those of you who have not been listening: Grazzhoppa has the Midas Touch. If he is on the track, it’s going to be good.
This time Cayoz takes on the doubters and the naysayers over this smoothed out track. If you aren’t up on Cayoz at this point it’s time to study up. Here is a man who is showing and proving EVERY TIME he decides to unleash a track. He’s a very consistent, yet ill, emcee.
