REVIEW: @TaZzHTG – “Savage” EP


It’s taken me a little while to get around to checking this project out but i’m finally hip. First Coast Jamaica describes aficionados like myself who are obsessed with paving the way for an underground movement which clamors for a mainstream boost.

Words By: @Sef_Jo

Montego Bay native/South Florida based Daley has compiled Savage EP as a way of communicating this whole idea that Kingstonians cannot call all the shots where the game is concerned. With only a couple months since Know My Intentions by MoulaUE [featured on the project], Savage was released at an ideal time to get the place lit right before Summer ’16. I would personally call this 8-track project a smooth spin on this wave of future trap. It comprises of elements that TDE fans might enjoy with a production vibe which reminds me of SABApivot’s work. Without further adieu…
  • MANTRA
    The seamless Introduction to the project features the alluring vocal essence of Rosh. “One time for your mind..” is the message invoking a mindful meditation wherein listeners are asked to sit back listen and enjoy for the next 28mins~ Success, wealth and health for all.
  • CITY SAVAGE
    Clever metaphors and punchlines; sonics are on point too as we jump right in. Get used to the sound of Daley as his entire flow is switched up. At this point, I’ve made up my mind to refrain myself from too much comparisons. As we know, Mobay is the city Daley reps; I want to assume, however, that living in Pembroke Pines has had some influence on the Rapper’s creative experience. MoulaUE’s booming rhymes and OneLoveTheo final verse reminds us that we have got to keep it savage. This is the ultimate rule and trap culture is reiterated.
  • IGNITE
    As an audiophile, I always love when Artists choose singles that will get me hype. This is what made me interested in giving the project a listen. From the Instrumental to the energy presented here, I’m hardly regretting my decision to compare Daley to some one else. The mystery box that is First Coast Jamaica is that just as it in every other corner of the world, you never know what you will find. Ignite allows me to experience the full versatility of Daley, solely. Don’t care how you feel about it, this joint slaps.

@LxrdEzzi Speaks On Love, Domestic Violence & More On “Keep Moving”!


Jamaican Rapper Lxrd Ezzi could’ve used his talents to speak on topics you hear every other Artist talk about nowadays, but instead he addresses love and Domestic Violence on “Keep Moving“. Produced by JayEDGE, Ezzi speaks on the effects of Domestic Violence, and how love can help to heal the emotional scars. An issue that is sometimes overlooked, it is up to Artists like Ezzi to help bring awareness, and Organizations to help educate the masses about Domestic Violence. The song was also made to motivate those who are going through it and other issues to speak up, be free and rise above the oppression. This is the first single off Lxrd Ezzi’s upcoming “Music For The Deaf” project. Check out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
