Behind the Scenes with “KILLZ” (Big Proof Story)

Published

Killz

I’ve been struggling while deciding what to let you guys read as my first write up here with Detroitrap.com. I’ve decided that I will share a story about myself first to let the readers understand a little more about who I am and the life I have lived in Detroit HipHop. I know so many people in the industry and most are like family so these are some personal memories of my life. This one is featuring one of Detroit’s top emcees @tyfarris.
In 2005 we were both signed to Iron Fist records with our group the Purple Gang and were blessed to tour with the legendary D12 and Slum Village. The tour was packed with Detroit people and we all knew each other and rolled as family as we crossed the country performing every night literally living our dreams. When we hit the streets we were deep and we always made sure everyone was good and nobody would fuck with us cause we were from Detroit and you could just tell we didn’t play that shit.
One day in Rhode Island, out of all places, we get into one of the craziest fights ever and for no reason at all besides defending Detroit. Let me explain Rhode Island to you for the folks who never been. It’s a small state that is the size of most big cities. We had a great show and the whole city was buzzing because the tour was in town. This was the last leg of tour and most of the people who traveled with us were tired or fell back to fuck with some chics, so we weren’t deep when we hit the scene that night.
There was only 4 of us with no security cause we were in Rhode Island, and there is no way we are getting into shit in this town. As soon as we hit downtown people were everywhere because of some black empowerment summit festival and we thought that this was perfect for us to go to. It was me, Proof, Ty, and Dj Salaam Wreck. Salaam had a few chics meet us and they were cold so we like bet we drinking tonight. We hit one bar and got shit popping but if anybody knows Proof, they know we not sitting in one place for too long, so off we go to another bar. As soon as we exited the bar shit went left. There was a group of guys outside maybe 12 of them and they knew the girls we were with. On some shit out of D12 song, one of them runs up but he was on some fan shit. He says I can’t believe it y’all it’s Obie Trice. I’m ctfu instantly cause I know how Proof feels about shit like this. Proof was the fucking man before Eminem blew up and everyone from the city still respected him as such, but out of town was a different story. D12 was triple platinum at the time but there were 6 members of the group and unless you were Bizarre or Em people would mess your name up all the time unless you were their favorite. Proof actually handled this one cool and laughed as well and said naw that ain’t me and we kept going. Dude starts yelling screaming fuck Obie Trice and you a bitch for not signing the autograph. Proof had been in all types of trouble and he didn’t want us to do shit and said let’s go. I looked at Ty and he couldn’t believe it either. Then I thought about it and the chics Salaam had were cold as fuck and losing out on them was not an option.🤣😂😭🤣😂 Ty had this look on his face though like he wasn’t with the giggles this day and said did you hear that Proof…HE CALLED YOU A BITCH. Proof hated being called a bitch and would scrap every time if that shit was said but today he was like let’s go. The next shit sounded like slow motion. FUCK YOU AND ALL THEM DETROIT NIGGAS . Proof looked over and said fuck it go ahead and that’s exactly what we did. I dropped one to the left and Ty dropped two on the right, I saw another guy confused like he didn’t know how we dropped 3 so fast so I clocked his thinking ass and he was down. Ty drops another guy and I see the remnants of Salaam as he had dropped 2 and was sliding another guy across some product table. These niggas couldn’t believe that 3 people had whipped on 8 people So fast and the other 4 started playing peace keeper.
Proof didn’t do a thing in this scrap cause of legal trouble like I told you before so he was with the peace keeping shit as well. Y’all fucked up when y’all said that shit about Detroit. Ty had did this one nigga bad and he was still salt that he was leaking and he grabbed a box cutter and tried to run up again. This shit had Ty heated and he was trying to kill this nigga after that shit. I was laughing so hard cause he so mad and I never seen him go completely crazy like that. He was ready to murder that guy until one of the peace keepers said Obie Trice and them beat y’all ass. Man we were dying laughing as we left.
Moral of the story is , don’t fuck with people from Detroit and never pull a blade on Ty Farris, his face that day still floors me every time. Peace y’all, the anks for looking at a little Detroit history with me.

Killz Korner Ty Farris

This week we are ft.Ty Farris with his project “Room 39 part 2” and the group Street Life who are the hottest in the city right now.

Ty has hit the streets hard with “Room 39 Part 2″. ( available at https://tyfarris.com/ ). This is hard hitting street music. I am very involved in the Detroit Music scene and I am here to tell you that Ty has earned his stripes and deserves the accolade of one of Detroit’s best artist. The eastside native has created his own lane and with his producer Trox have provided some griity music to get through a gritty life. This music is a perfect soundtrack of what hood life is about.
Room 39 is 11 tracks of substance, an attribute that is missing from most music that is thrown together nowadays. The mixing and mastering of the songs are excellent and Farris delivers blow after blow of outstanding lyricism and thought provoking punchlines.

I came into this review with my Big Proof ears on and I must say that I am over impressed with the album delivered to my music buzz. with lines like ” I don’t migrate with fly weights, since 98 around niggas that buy weight”. Lines like this stick out to me because if you are from Detroit there is some chance that you have sold drugs before, even if by association. This is just facts. These types of rhymes along with the gritty beats provided by Trox give the perfect soundtrack to a hood adventure.

My fav tracks are “Please Don’t overdose”, “Came a long Way” ft LIL Fame of MOP and 38 Spesh, and my favorite track is “Say my name” which takes me back to the Purple Gang days.

It’s time for me to leave a rating, and I must say that I am biased as a review because I know this mufaka personally. He is actually this asshole on the songs in real life. So for that to be the case its hard for me not to grade his album even harder than I would the average emcee, and i still have to give him 4 and 1/2 tokes. This is good music and I must say that i am proud to announce that Ty Farris is bringing the fire that the streets need in the city of Detroit, Eastside stand up, the boy did something for y’all.

Killz Korner rating 4 1/2 tokes.

The album has been available since July 26th, 2019, and make sure you add it to workout playlist.

TINY JAG DENIED PROMO FOR ANTI-PATRIARCY VIDEO

TINY JAG DENIED PROMO FOR ANTI-PATRIARCY VIDEO
Detroit’s Tiny Jag is a rapper, singer/songwriter known for conveying relevant messages throughout her music. One of her most consistent; the empowerment of women. Recently, Tiny Jag released a vibrant visual to her single ‘Bizarre,’ challenging the traditional story of creation and Adam and Eve.
Tiny Jag on her intentions with the ‘Bizarre’ Music Video:
“We hear about Eve’s shortcomings at a very young age. Many of us are influenced by that to view women as inadequate before we can even understand what we’re digesting. I wanted to challenge that narrative and give its followers a bit of a hard time.”
Shortly after releasing the controversial video via YouTube, Tiny Jag and team began to push the visual for support and promotion. Among these attempts were numerous tries with Facebook (also owning/controlling Instagram). After every tweaked attempt fell short of approval, Tiny Jag realized the concept and message of her work may be what was truly denied.
Tiny Jag on being censored as a woman:
“So I knew we weren’t going to get support for the video if it had cursing or discriminatory lyrics, I avoided those things.  The track/visual do not discuss, promote, or demonstrate sexual acts, no nudity. I mean, it’s a bit out of the box but to censor me for anything short of those things seems discriminatory in itself. I can’t help but believe that it’s an attack against what it represents.”

It’s all happening in just a couple days on June 24th 3 PM EST /9 PM CET  at Copenhagen Crates https://cphcrates.com/

If “Jeet Kune Do” is any inkling of what’s to come forth on this reimagined take repackaged in an exquisite format than hip hop fans are in for something outstanding. This particular lyrical exchange of two Detroit legends sparring words atop an in your face battle royale worthy production from Dj Dez. Vstylez projects the confidence he comments on this verse with flawless delivery and Elzhi slides in providing sword slicing word dicing fine example of Detroit hip-hop. It’s a different level with these two and not too many emcees got it like this. Get yourself that brand new vinyl this June 24th and don’t wait too long… I have a feeling 100 copies won’t last long for this one, I’ll know I’ll be ready to grab my copy that day.
