Paul Wall & Termanology announce joint album Start 2 Finish + share “Recognize My Car” (prod. Pete Rock)

Published

on

Paul Wall & Termanology have just shared their newest single “Recognize My Car”, produced by the legendary Pete Rock, and announced their joint-album start 2 Finish, slated for an April 8th release. The track finds Paul in the smooth pockets he’s known for, delivering a crisp hook and concise rhymes and Termanology providing his classic flair for lyricism. The track is about Paul’s signature car that is a staple of the Houston hip-hop community and an iconic accessory for the legendary MC. The music video is a mesh of NYC & Houston culture, with Paul & Term sporting a tri-state flow surrounded by low-riding cars and a quick cameo from hip-hop’s fabled jeweler Johnny Dang. “Recognize My Car” is a perfect exemplar of the unique musical identity of Paul & Term’s upcoming joint album Start 2 Finish, which isan exhibition of the sheer talent and finesse of two seasoned veterans in the game.

Start 2 Finish is a gritty & genuine collaborative project between Houston legend Paul Wall and the acclaimed tri-state rapper Termanology. Although the two MCs are from completely different worlds, what binds them together creatively is the constant pursuit of greatness on the mic. Even at his legendary stature, Paul Wall has always been a student of the game, and what excites him the most these days is what’s happening in the underground. This natural curiosity led him to the rap phenom Termanology, through a recommendation from their mutual friend and legendary NYC producer Statik Selektah. Paul & Term hold Statik in high regard, so the introduction was not taken lightly. After a few meetings and recording sessions, Term & Paul recognized an undeniable creative connection. The two became frequent collaborators and close friends, so the idea of working on an album together came naturally. The ethos behind the tape was to make an authentic, NYC-style hip-hop album, with Paul Wall rapping in a completely different style outside of his traditional wheelhouse and Termanology supplying the hard-hitting raps he’s known for. Start 2 Finish features production from Statik SelektahDame Grease, who produced a majority of DMX’s It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot, the iconic producer Pete Rock and even Term himself. The impressive guest list doesn’t stop there, with verses from Bun BNemsMillyzFly Anakin, and Kxng Crooked adding even more layers to the album. Along with the release of the album, Paul & Termanology have signed a limited number of vinyl copies of Start 2 Finish available for pre-order and will be delivered on release day, 4/8.This project is truly a meeting of the depths of hip-hop’s underground and the upper-echelon of rap’s royalty, all wrapped up in a sea of smooth beats and tight rhymes.

Kenzo Balla Keeps His Eyes Dry in “No Sympathy” Video

Published

By

Bursting out of NYC with the explosiveness of an elite edge rusher, Kenzo Balla is applying pressure on his mission to run up a sack. With his borough on his back like a last name on a jersey, Kenzo returns to share the new video for “No Sympathy” from his recent Mr. Ready To Blitz project. Over dizzying production from Spinback and Ron.Adg, Kenzo spits with a game-ready fury on “No Sympathy,” delivering each cautionary flex with a hard-nosed intensity: “Ballin’ on n****s, I ain’t talking scrimmage.”

The video for “No Sympathy,” shot by SozeCinema, positions Kenzo as the captain of his team rallied behind him throughout the video. The Richard Sherman to his own Legion of Boom, Kenzo’s the only one who’s visage is unobscured by hoods and balaclavas, making it clear he’s the face of this pack. With quick cuts and transitions to match the track’s rapid pace, “No Sympathy” plays out less like a music video and more like the hardest-hitting highlight reel of the season. The video for “No Sympathy” arrives as Kenzo prepares for Mr. Ready To Blitz (Deluxe), coming on December 16th.

Mr. Ready to Blitz saw Kenzo leverage his devastating explosiveness across 14 tracks, including recent singles like the high-octane, NPR-approved “Krash Out,” and the Cito Blick and Pdot Savv-assisted “Don’t Panic.” On “Feel The Rage,” Kenzo bursts onto an endearingly melancholic drill instrumental with the headstrong momentum of a mammoth nose tackle like Vince Wilfork, while more fast-paced cuts like the Rayy Balla-featured “Go Kuu” highlight Kenzo’s elusive agility as he flashes through instrumental pockets like Troy Polamalu. Like all the most elite defensive rushers in the game, Kenzo’s strength lies in his opponent’s inability to contain him– in the split second it takes to register his arrival on the track, he puts himself 10 steps ahead.

A rising name in one of the nation’s busiest rap scenes, Kenzo Balla made his mark on the scene with his relentless rhymes and high-energy vocals. Known for collaborating with fellow Bronx heavyweights like his brother TG Crippy, Kenzo kicked off his career with a frenzy of fiery videos, including local hits like “5th To Sev” ft. TG Crippy & Pdot Sav (2 million video views), “OOTAZ,” and the “Love Nwantiti”-remixing Let Me Know” (1.8 million views). This summer, the former AAU baller tore up the streets with Dead Gzz,” a vicious, uptempo missive that racked up over 1.3 million video views since its release in June.

With a blistering EP in the books and the Deluxe on its way, Kenzo Balla emerges from his perch in the Bronx to blitz the rap game. Sit back and watch his rise, because there’s no stopping it.
