reze

Give it up for London’s own Del Reze, and the release of his highly anticipated mixtape, The Muzik Asylum. For months now Reze has been grinding in preparation for this release. You’ve seen several self directed videos from Del. You probably heard him on the radio a gang of times as well; whether it was a live studio performance or an in depth interview about the project, dude was letting his presence be known through out the air waves. Reze was able to see the results of his grind pay off this past Wednesday, October 22nd, when he shut down the APK for the Muzik Asylum release party. If you missed the release party, you’re in luck. Reze has just put the project up in its entirety for download.

Del Reze brings listeners an epic battle between himself and the music through each song. The concept behind The Muzik Asylum is, a battle between Reze’s sanity and his devotion to his craft. With features from Jux Cain, Jr Fillion, Jay Downz and Casper The Ghost, Del cut no corners in making this project one to remember; the music speaks for itself.

Be sure to check this mixtape out, and support one of the hardest working emcees in the game.

[Feature] Fashawn’s “Boy Meets World”: An oral history on its five-year anniversary

Fashawn Boy Meets World

Interviews by: Martin Bauman

In 2009, a young, hungry, and largely undiscovered emcee from Fresno teamed up with a Los Angeles producer with an ear for crafting albums and bringing an artist’s music to life. Fashawn and Exile were in the works on Boy Meets World, a project that would change their lives forever.

Hip-hop has long had an obsession with the debut album — perhaps more so than any other genre. They mark an artist’s introduction to the world and often live on as their definitive piece of work. Nas had Illmatic. Jay had Reasonable Doubt. Snoop had Doggystyle. Biggie had Ready to Die. On October 22nd, 2009, the day came for Fashawn to leave his own mark. He had lived 21 years and was anxious to tell his story — to let the world know what Fresno looked like, sounded like, and felt like.

The result was an album the likes of which had seldom been heard from someone his age. It was witty, heartfelt, and honest. His storytelling was captivating. The production was magnificent. XXL gave it an XL and called it an album that “resonates a lot more than the work of some rappers decades his senior.” HipHopDX called it “perhaps the most heir apparent to Nas’ ’94 classic.” It’s only fitting that five years later, Nas would end up signing Fashawn to his Mass Appeal label.

Perhaps the greatest testament to the album’s significance, though, is the fact that it’s still as relatable and fresh today as the day it was released. We caught up with those involved in the making of Boy Meets World to hear the untold stories behind the album’s creation. Read the oral history after the jump.
