Today’s song is called Secret Technique from up and coming rapper TEZ PARIAH. The song is from his mixtape After School Special. He thanks JAY-Z’s Reasonable Doubt and EMINEM’s Infinite, as these albums had a massive influence on his debut mixtape.
Born in North Carolina and now residing in Georgia, TEZ PARIAH– whose real name is Curtis Buckmire- has been rapping since the age of eight. He picked the stage name TEZ PARIAH, as “Tez” derives from his middle name “Cortez” and “pariah” means outcast (or should I say “Outkast”) – which is named after his favourite rap group. The teenager is also strongly influenced by MAN METHOD MAN, BIG L, and ANDRE 3000. When you get the chance, listen to the effortlessly cool and laid back track – and you can definitely hear the mixture of METHOD MAN and ANDRE 300 in Pariah’s rapping.
This undeniably talented rapper is no one-track pony: At the age of 17, he produces, engineers and directs. Man, is there no end to this guy’s talents! Oh well, some people have all the luck!
If you like Secret Techniques, look out for his mixtape After School Special coming out real soon!
