Lazarus – “You Already Know” ft. Rick Ross & Gucci Mane



Lazarus - “You Already Know” ft. Rick Ross & Gucci Mane

After last years “Decapitation Chamber” feat. Ghostface Killah & “Leatherface” with Bizarre, Hopsin, & King Gordy comes an unexpected collaboration of mass proportions from Detroit’s own Lazarus. Tackling a trap beat Lazarus hits us with a welcomed curveball in “You Already Know” feat. Rick Ross & Gucci Mane. The star studded collaboration offers us a twist in the forever growing story of Lazarus as he brilliantly demonstrates his versatile abilities atop  production by Tez that #LazArmy fans aren’t accustomed to hearing the Doctor/Rapper attack. “Don’t gotta lie, my rhymes tell you what you already know..” is a fitting close and simple explanation of this mega record. Rick Ross & Gucci Mane respectively come with strong verses that perfectly reflect their styles and blend well. Best of all Lazarus’s ability to remain his top notch lyrical self well aiding the hook in a catchy and ear-invasive way packs a punch ready for your car’s sound system to consume.

DETROIT! Catch Lazarus performing at El Club alongside the legendary GZA on 01.28.2020 in Detroit, MI. More info here.

The editor finally tells his own story.




Modern independent musicians wear many hats, from guiding the production of the music they love, directing merch and marketing, and working the mechanics necessary to get their music heard. Likewise, content creators have to stay on their toes to contribute consistently; staying in touch with the game and building relationships with everyone in and out of the machine is essential.

Joe Commisso, aka COMMiSSiON, also serves as the editor and webmaster of, creating content that supports and reviews Detroit music. He also supports Detroit acts directly at shows and events, and has been actively performing and preparing his own contribution to the discussion about Detroit hip-hop.

As the new decade opened, Commission released “GROWiNG UP” across platforms and chose to weave a narrative about his past as his first full project.With appearances from VStylez, Kid Vishis, Jonnie Morris, Sin Crawford, and Redman, there is an edge to GROWiNG UP that reflects the struggles that COMMiSSiON encountered growing up on Carlisle Street in Detroit. JRGotTheHits, who helmed the majority of the production on the album, provided him with a synth-heavy soundscape that is sparse enough to allow Joe to do his thing while incorporating a good live feel that should translate well in Joe’s performances.


Standout tracks include “Tell Em,” “Too Much,” and “Flagrant,” where Pontiac’s Sin Crawford drops a notable verse. COMMiSSiON does a great job of maintaining a subtext of growth throughout the tape, and the album climaxes with “Rapper Dad,” where Joe balances music with maintaining his connection with his family.

Overall, GROWiNG UP is a solid project. Making a thematic album for a debut is challenging, as streaming playlists don’t always allow today’s listeners an opportunity to hear records in context. Nevertheless, the songs can stand on their own, and it will be interesting to see how COMMiSSiON and JRGotTheHits continue to build chemistry. As we look forward to future projects (and content) by COMMiSSiON, we can bet that his music will stay true to what those of us who are music multitaskers already know — having balance is the most important thing.
