“White Papers” – Review Of Smoke DZA’s T.H.C. (The Hustler’s Catalog)

By | 8 Comments

<a href=""> Before the roaches of George Kush da Button could cool off, Smoke DZA -- Hip-Hop's beloved, chain-smoking Harlemnite -- has sparked the next one, The Hustler’s Catalog. It’s another adventure filled with head thumping production, several stellar guest features and of course endless tales of the friendliest of leaves. The haze is the thickest when DZA is in his comfort zone. Slow, thumping beats, with plenty of horns and vibrant sonic concussions like on “F*ck is You Talking Bout,” shift the focus entirely from his rhymes to a more balanced sound. His chemistry is rock solid with The Kid Daytona as the two trade excellent verses on “Cool Sh*t,” on what is easily one of the high (pun intended) points of the album. The same holds true on “Roll Up, Pour Up,” one of the all-around best songs, featuring strong 16s DZA and an equally good and catchy hook courtesy of Killa Kyleon. However, the grass isn’t always so green, as contrary to popular belief that there is no such thing as too much weed. The subject matter quickly grows redundant, along with the stoic emcee’s inflexible flow and cliché stories. And when he occasionally branches out into other topics, DZA often winds up sounded artificial and corny, as seen in “Know Better,” where he raps “Out until every damn ounce is out/You’d be a fool if you count me out/I’m more clever than that/I’m a 9/11 n*gga, I know better than that.” Additionally, the majority of the features such as Kendrick Lamar on <a href="">"Uptown 81"</a> easily outrap the main attraction.

Smoke DZA – “The World” Video

By | 5 Comments

<a href=""> Whether he's standing amongst the desert scrub or rocking a crowd in a packed venue, Smoke DZA is in the zone. The locale doesn't matter; only the bars. So, despite being far from home on the West Coast leg of the recent Smoker's Club Tour, he can comfortably deliver visuals for "The World." No stress involved, just a chance to flip a few silky syllables. The Harlem representative's laconic flow is in full effect, the punchlines are smooth and clever, and the angelic-voiced instrumental matches the laid-back vibe nicely. It's not all relaxation though. With the track almost at it's end, DZA leaves us with these final words: "All these obstacles I hurl, until I get what's rightfully mine: the world." Gotta to respect the ambition. The man's next obstacle-hurling effort, T.H.C. (The Hustler's Catalog), will be on its way in the very near-future. <a href="">[TSC]</a>.

Smoke DZA – “#KUSHEDGOD” Video

<a href=""> Yo Smoke! No one man should have all that sour. Young Kushedgod, is getting Stoopid McNoopid with his campaign to get T.H.C. (The Hustler's Catalog) to win the Piffulitzer Prize. The latest ashes of his beautiful dark hazy fantasy has the Harlem representer conjuring up visions of <a href="">a Kanye movie</a> with meteoric-sized weed nuggets flying at him from all corners of the earth.

<a href=""> Smoke DZA's repeated invocations of "I smoke that kush" at the beginning of "KUSHEDGOD" are promises, reiterations of an absolute truth that cannot be questioned. As the title infers, if the ineffable Lil B's entire existence is "based," than DZA's is "kushed." Lesser bud simply does not enter the young Harlemite's cipher. Lesser emcees probably shouldn't either. The high-timer's laid-back drawl easily floats over the banging production here, letting the world know that he only indulges in the finest grade of herbal essence. With a major release like The Hustler's Catalog on it's way, he can afford to sit back, relax, and light a little more of that good stuff up. Today's the man's birthday, and out of the goodness of his heart, he left us this nice gift. If you'd like to say thanks, shoot him a message at <a href="">@SmokeDZA on Twitter</a>.
