Single You Out: Shaz Illyork – Kandahar (ft. Tools Beastly and Therman Munsin)

New single up for Shaz Illyork to represent for his forthcoming album, Graff City. The production is low key and stripped down to a few basic components, allowing Illlyork, and guests Tools Beastly and Therman Munsin to spread some heavy hitting sixteens amongst the masses.

Album drops September 12th.


Single You Out: Shaz Illyork -Make Way (ft. Blank Face)

New single from Shaz Illyork’s forthcoming album, Wide Awake. Produced by Ayden, and featuring Blank Face, Shaz releases a fury of street slang over a reworking of one of the Wu-Tang’s most noticeable beats.

I hope it won’t be too long until we get that album!


Single You Out: Silent Someone – Lab 82 (ft. EL Da Sensei, Oktober Zero, and Shaz IllYork)


This is a release that has crept up on me because I don’t even know who Silent Someone is.  But now I have a better idea after checking out this tight production.   The somber vocal sample combined with those drums is a nice twist.  I also like how the beat alternates every so often giving it a different sound and an appeal.   Lyrically, Shaz Illyork, El Da Sensei, and Oktober Zero pay homage to the art of graffiti and do so properly.

Silent Someone’s new album, I Have Company is due any day so just keep your eyes peeled.
