Tell Em What My Name Iz...


What Izza Kizza? He Izza Kizza. Doesn't sound like anyone. Raps pretty ridiculous. Down with Timbaland. Oh yeah and he knows her.

...And most importantly, I produced a song on his mixtape, Kizzaland.

I know my true Yay Area heads will appreciate the intro sample on the song...

Zo! and Tigallo Love the 80's... and so does Trackadeezy!


Awww nawwww he done did it again!!!!

Get it while the gettin is good... Word on the street is that Zo! and the homie Phonte (of Little Brother) have only pressed up 2500 copies of their new project, Zo! and Tigallo Love the 80's.

So why am I spreading the news?

Because I got a chance to remix their remake (that's what I said) of Joe Jackson's "Steppin' Out". Blasphemous? Nah. Homage? Yes! And I was even lucky enough to get the vocals from PhonTigallo Pain himself... The remix is included on the project so go get that! You can swoop it right here...

Chillin' On A Cloud With PPP

The first time I ever got a chance see Platinum Pied Pipers was back in '04 at Milk in San Francisco. They had already dropped the "Ridin' High"/"Open Your Eyes" 12", but I still wasn't sure what to expect from them. At that point the group was more hype than buzz in the Bay, but after seeing the show it became evident that PPP was something to pay attention to. And to put icing on the cake, the show introduced us to two women who have proven they to had something to offer the game: Tioimbe Lockhart and Georgia Anne Muldrow. I officially became a fan it all.

I finally got to meet Waajeed at Magic in '06. Dope dude. His only advice on the industry was simple. "Get Your MuthaF#@$%& Money!".

How insightful.
No really.


The fact that this remix actually happened shows that Tap and I actually have the power to will things into existence. I can't explain it, but somehow, through a string of events, I knew this would happen. When I finally got the acapella, I instantly fell in love with Karma's vocals. I decided to bring the track into my realm, while still preserving its funk roots. The horns in my version arent the same horns from the original. I wanted to mimic the original, while bringing a sampled element to it. The only request/guideline I recieved about the direction of the remix was to keep it on the dancefloor. So I had to keep it electric.

Go and buy it.
Buy it now.
The wax is available in stores.
It's on Itunes.

Get that, Get that!!!!
