Dazzi Recommends: Blitz x Otown Marco

Orlando's own, Otown Marco, dabs his way through a hazy house and welcomes guest for a turn-up in the Nassacre-directed video for "Blitz".

Dazzi Recommends: The Usual x Austin Royale

Austin Royale dangerously raps out of moving car window and gets his party shut down by the cops in his latest visual for "The Usual". The concept behind the track is pretty straightforward as the Durham native states that "...and if you didn't know this is the usual, we fuck it all up..." and you … Continue reading Dazzi Recommends: The Usual x Austin Royale

Dazzi Recommends: Flex x Kavale

Toronto's Kavale, gets inspired from Mad Cobra's notable track, "Flex" and puts his own touch on it. I am recommending this one because we have seen several artists try their hand at reggae lately and many just need to stick to their own sound. Kavale on the other hand sauces up the summer heat with … Continue reading Dazzi Recommends: Flex x Kavale

Dazzi Recommends: Modest x Matrix P Feat. Phay

Kuntry rapper, Matrix P and Atlanta artist, Phay of Stndrd have teamed up for an ironic track entitled, "Modest". I call it ironic because the title makes you believe Matrix and Phay will be rapping about staying down to Earth in the industry...not at all. Instead they turn the chorus into a positive affirmation of confidence that … Continue reading Dazzi Recommends: Modest x Matrix P Feat. Phay

Blige's "I Can Love You" in "Love … Continue reading Dazzi Recommends: Free Will EP x Quent Young

  DRE! takes his experiences of growing up in West Philadelphia in his neighborhood of Cobbs Creek and turns it into his debut EP.

It then picks up to everyday situations that surrounded DRE! as riding … Continue reading Dazzi Recommends: Cobbs Creek x DRE! (EP)
