Zilla has hooked up the Norwegian homie Chris Lee over a precise musical presentation by Huntsville’s very own Bossman. O3 or O-Thrid stands for On Our Own. Also want to send congrats to Zilla for making the SPIN.com list for Best Songs of 2011 (So Far). That’s a lot for a guy who came to me almost two years ago and asked me why people was not respecting his skills in the city as a rapper. My reply was put out a project.
We finally were able to get Mali Boi out of Studio A at the Speed of Sound facility. This the first official photo shoot for the Block Beattaz taken in NYC. I now have a few pics to send out to people wanting to do interviews with the Block Beattaz. To me this is the best production team hands down. They are from the south, but they don’t stick to the traditional sound of south to prove their southern lineage. Instead, I think they take the more rebel with a cause approach, and try to lead the south into uncharted waters. It’s easy to stick with a familiar sound and carbon copy the past for approval amongst peers, and those that came before us, but to actually build upon the foundation set, and make it your own is a more remarkable accomplishment in my opinion. The photos are just a few by the homie Matt McGinley. You can check him out at www.mattmcginley.com or www.mattmcginley.blogspot.com.
