“Hit you wit’ that clothesline..like Luke Harper, and backstrap my plants with the Magna Carta” – Phaze What

Since Piff Gang’s breakthrough, the collective established a variety of waves, and not often credited for. Like some legendary myth, the group are on (I guess what could be described as) a hiatus, as fans hope for them to one day reunite. The members are still active within the scene, ranging from music and fashion. Bringing us to one of the standouts, who I would say is in somewhat of a transition as an artist, as he continues to record, and keep fans eager with the exclusive drops (such as this), with the anticipated follow up project to The Sweet Chin Movie and the Real Spit EP.

“One cheese, One sour, 2Pacs…I Get Around”

Definitely a “zoners”, best enjoyed with some plants, as Phaze What flows cool over some Trip-Hop production from New Machine. I say Trip-Hop, simply as that’s how it sounds feels. You wouldn’t often hear those sounds meshed together, and so crisp, the beat and synths separately sound like their from two different eras, yet they compliment together. New Machine is certainly on the up, as he cements his sound and brand, and you can hear why, providing Heartbeat’s laid-back vibe, on which Phaze What rhymes (what sounds) effortlessly.

“N**gaz hate me like I was Mugabe, real n**gaz love me like I’m Marcus Garvey”

Phaze What is underrated with the flows, similarly to Curren$y, and though the discography is not as vast, (much like Spitta) it is definitely varied. As much as I might want to hear something more upbeat, or for him to tackle a more relevant beat so that others can hear how good he actually is, with this release (amidst the previous), you realise, he has the ability to take you to his world, bring you into his zone. An artist, who pours charisma through clever raps, giving you different styles, all authentic.

Ahead of his time, you never know when the next project will drop, with a couple visuals to come too, so stay tuned to the wave.
