Jazz Lazer – Hip Hop 2013

blame it on Shake March 28, 2013

It’s funny how this music thing works… you can know everything there is about an artist clear across the world, yet so little (or nothing at all) about an artist that’s as close as neighbors can get. Case in point: Jazz Lazer, an artist from my own backyard of Las Vegas. With 30k+ followers I see I’m late to the party but I was only first put on tonight while watching this interview with Dizzy Wright and Bootleg Kev. Dizzy spoke on a few artists he sees doing it in the 702 and mentioned Jazz as one of them. After a quick search I noticed my timing was spot on as he recently just released “Hip Hop 2013” which is puts a current flip on the dead prez classic. Proceeding to YouTube, I checked a few of his videos and saw that he had a couple sides to him. The ratchet side (“Piece Of Change” w/ Tyga), the introspective side (“Here To Say”), the true life side (“Heaven Or Las Vegas” w/ SeDrew Price) and so on. Take a listen to the track below and the songs I listed and if you like what you hear, get ready for his upcoming Heaven or Las Vegas project.
