The mixtape is due out in May, and Z says on his Web site, “it’s a new album of original material we put together in between other projects. He and I are really, really happy with the outcome and I think you’ll dig it.” Nuff said.
The first cut is Mass Hysteria, featuring Lateef and Jurassic 5’s Chali 2na. Without the full landscape of the mixtape from which to judge, Mass Hysteria has a darker vibe, and its up-tempo beat pushes Chali and Lateef into some pretty wicked lyrical deliveries. Chali seems able to prove himself as pretty versatile on any and all guest spots.
Meanwhile, wish I was in Miami for Z’s appearance with D-Nice. Classic. Damn.
