Published

on

Paul Wall Termanology have just shared their joint album Start 2 Finish and the visuals for the track “Thailand” featuring Bun B. Across 10-tracks, Paul Wall and Termanology deliver a project that’s in a lane entirely its own. Bringing along his classic Houston flair, Paul Wall supplies rhymes unlike anything else in his long-standing career, while Termanology lays down the crafty bars & expert flows synonymous with his name. Start 2 Finish is a meeting of the culture of two of the biggest hip-hop cities, Houston and NYC, with the final product being a project that is wholeheartedly a dedication to both MC’s respective hometowns On the jazzy cut “Ask Permission”, Paul & Term rap over a superb Statik Selektah beat and truly exhibit why they hold such a legendary status in hip-hop today. “How You Been” is produced by Dame Grease featuring a smooth hook from Mia Jae and is a smooth standout track on the project that shows the natural versatility of Paul & Term. The well-curated visual for “Thailand” provides an homage to H-Town and shows Paul & Term spitting alongside hip-hop icon Bun B, with all parties providing a masterclass in lyricism & artistry. Start 2 Finish is an organic meeting of Paul Wall & Termanology, with the common denominator being a love for rap and striving to continue writing the legacy of a pair of enigmatic figures in hip-hop.

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. Paul & Term previously teased the flavor of the joint album with the previously released singles “No Tolerance” featuring Fly Anakin Nems,the Pete Rock-produced “Recognize My Car”, and “No Asterisk”. Along with the release of the album, Paul & Termanology released signed a limited number of vinyl copies of Start 2 Finish which sold out before the release date.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.

Icewear Vezzo & DJ Drama Share ‘Paint The City,’ a Star-Studded Gangsta Grillz Mixtape

Published

By

Respected across the nation for his slick-talking rhymes and hustler’s mentality, Icewear Vezzo is always on his grind. Marking a new milestone in his prolific career, the Detroit native connects with DJ Drama to share Paint The Citya new Gangsta Grillz mixtape. A natural evolution from Vezzo’s acclaimed Rich Off Pints series, Paint The City finds the 6 Mile native spitting witticisms earned from a lifetime of hustling. The new mixtape bolsters Vezzo’s matter-of-fact flexes with Drama’s energetic exhortations, providing a jolt of electricity to the first-ever Gangsta Grillz tape by a Detroit rapper. Drama curates a selection of beats–many from regular Vezzo collaborators including Antt BeatzForeva RollinJune Da Genius, and Max Beats–that contrast Vezzo’s signature piano-led menace (“RNS”) with a more triumphant sound that reflects the recent Quality Control signee’s successes (“Ain’t No Turning Back“).

Paint The City illustrates the immense respect that Icewear Vezzo commands in the rap game–the 6 Mile ambassador rolls out the red carpet for a list of renowned guest stars to talk their smack. The tape is home to the buzzing single “It’s All On U” ft. Kodak Black, which generated over 5 million streams on Spotify and 11 million views on YouTube, and “Certified,” a sinister slapper that envelops Future into Vezzo’s sonic realm. Recent single “One Time” features a standout verse from trap legend Jeezy, and the closing track “Trippin” boasts a typically witty appearance from 2 Chainz. Amidst all the star power, Vezzo makes sure to put on for the D, recruiting his East Side associates Peezy and GT for the propulsive Michigan banger “No Talking.” The first full-length to be released since Vezzo signed to Quality Control MusicPaint The City is available everywhere on all platforms via Iced Up Records/Quality Control Music.

Vezzo’s new deal with Quality Control marks the start of an exciting new period of success for the budding superstar. Consistently racking up more than 4 million streams on his catalog per week, Vezzo reached national prominence with the Rich Off Pints series of tapes, including the Pitchfork-acclaimed Rich Off Pints 3, released earlier this year. Vezzo’s ambitions reach far beyond music, and even beyond the physical realm. The Iced Up Records CEO is a serial entrepreneur, starting his own businesses in fields as diverse as real estate, cannabis, snacks (We Eatin! brand recently dropped Vezzo’s own flavor of chips, called Vezzo Hotz), and jewelry maintenance. Vezzo is on track to be a pioneer in the burgeoning metaverse, with his own VezzoVerse launching soon and a forthcoming line of NFTs.

With limitless ambition and the work ethic to achieve his every desire, it’s only a matter of time before Icewear Vezzo takes over the game.
