The song is lively and catchy, showing Tafia gliding over an engaging and melodic instrumental. On this track, Tafia reflects on his time in prison, the lavish lifestyle he’s crafted for himself since being released, and the high-stature his life experiences have garnered him. The visuals for the track are vivid and exhilarating, matching the vibe of the song perfectly.Although it’s just a sampler, “Been On It” serves as an undeniable indicator of the success that’s due for Tafia with his upcoming debut album, Mention My Name, which releases on March 18th with features from DavidoJeremihVory, and Rob49.

Through a constant stream of releases and unflinching dedication to his craft, Tafia has set himself apart from the pack and is poised to have a breakout year in 2022. After catching the attention of Meek Mill with his authentic 2017 single “Street Fanci”, Tafia was extended an invitation to meet the Philadelphia artist and philanthropist on his yacht in Miami. Tafia and his crew pulled up on Jetski’s and were greeted personally by Meek who immediately started rapping all the words to Tafia’s song, showing an initial interest in signing him to Dream Chasers Records. In 2019, Meek inked a deal between Dream Chasers and Roc Nation, signing Tafia as the first artist to the label a year after the partnership went through. Tafia wasted no time once he was signed, dropping the conclusion to his Fanci mixtape series, Street Fanci 3 in May 2020 and then a joint EP with rising Florida rapper Major Nine, titled Fanci No. 9 in October of 2020. Last year, Tafia dropped a mixtape hosted by the iconic DJ DramaStreet Clarity: Gangsta Grillz, which featured acts such as Rick RossMeek Mill, and Bobby Fishscale. The tape not only showed the faith hip-hop superstars have in Tafia, but the natural presence he has on the mic. Standout records like “Benyhana”, the record with Ross & Bobby Fishscale, and “Break The Bank”featuring Meek Mill have set up Tafia perfectly leading into his debut album Mention My Name, due for release on March 18th.

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

Published

on

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.
