With that real hip hop penetrating the space between your eardrums Aztek The Barfly stamps your brains with his latest sounds. In mixtape form “The Prekill”  keeps it hard-hitting throughout clocking in at ten records. ( Sidenote: 10 is my favorite number of tracks for a project. Let @detroitrap know your ideal album/mixtape length on Twitter!) Upon my first full & thorough listen I heard a very consistent, well thought out, & sonically cohesive project worthy of much more rotation. The tag alongs via features from the likes of Nolan the Ninja, Guilty Simpson and El Da Sensi fit the mold & each shines in their perspective time given. The background music isn’t any pitter patter either, after appearing with a verse on track two Nolan The Ninja also provides production on track four. Nolan’s not the only producer shining bright here though – Pig Pen , Eddie Logix, & Foul Mouth among others also provide wonderful pallets for Aztek The Barfly to do what he does best across the entire mixtape….drop BARS! “The Prekill” is out now for just $5 via Bandcamp today & remember if you like what you hear #support & #share! This is DETROIT RAP!


Da iLLAZ – People Under Detroit



Da iLLAZ - People Under Detroit

With pristine execution comes a homage to member illadope’s favorite hip-hop group the iconic People Under The Stairs. Speaking of hip-hop groups here we have the newly formed Da iLLAZ driving home a powerful debut mixtape packaged full of assorted gems. The wonderful thing about this collaboration is that each & every artist lent their abilities in a cohesive and effective way that provides a polished display of efforts.

I’m fresh off my first listen still working my way into the second but off first impressions there’s a lot of greatness to take in here. I will definitely call it early and say this project will certainly be occupying time on my playlist over the summer. There’s a lot to take in here and a plethora of dope features such as Semi Six and Noveliss among others. Also, we’ve got a RAPPIN’ GRANDMA? That’s right! Check out the video above for project titled “People Under Detroit” and catch L.A.Z.’s own mom dropping some stellar bars to kick things off right!

One thing I would also like to mention is the inclusion of crypto wallet addresses that I found on Da iLLAZ Bandcamp page. I’m starting to see more artists embrace the world of cryptocurrency but this was the first time I’ve seen them included on a Bandcamp page! If you’re feeling the tape I’m going to include those below for those who would like to show their support in a Bitcoin sort of way.
