Star Song: S.GOLD – Timeless (featuring Azon Blaze)

s gold the stormToday’s song is called Timeless by superfly rapper S.GOLD. This track is the fourth release from his latest much-talked-about album, The Storm. The Storm was named one of the top North/South Carolina releases of 2012.

No doubt the success of the album will continue with Timeless. Produced by South American duo The Columbians, Timeless features that smooth 1990’s inspired R&B/hip-hop/after hours tone – unlike the previous bass-bursting releases- Going Nowhere, Say Hey and Do Whatchu Do (which feature some dope cuts from JERMAINE JACKSON’s 80’s hit Do What You Do).

Watch the video for Timeless and listen to how this artist’s raps just groove into that after hours beat –wicked! If you’re liking this track (and I bet you will), you can head over S.GOLD’s Bandcamp page and check out the album.

Star Song: Secret Technique – Tez Pariah

Tez Pariah Special Technique

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!
