This track is just bananas!! MidaZ and Illustrate wrecked shop on this beat!
Born Xavier Andreu in the early 1980’s in Southbridge, MA, Haze was first introduced to hip hop in the mid 1990’s. Albums such as Resurrection By Common Sense and Illmatic by Nas we’re his earliest inspirations. The productions of The Beatnuts, Pete Rock, The D.I.T.C crew as well as DJ Premier molded his taste in beats: melodic samples and tough drums.
Although his main influences are from the 1990’s and early 2000’s he realizes you have to move along with the times That’s not to say you’ll hear him using auto-tune any time soon – it means he knows we’re in an era where you have to update old formulas. You can’t use the same flow on every song; you can’t rhyme over filtered bass-lines and horn stabs any more. He wants to move the culture forward without straying too far from his roots and the foundation that was laid before him. Haze respects hip hop and its forefathers and aims to be named among the greatest lyricists of all time.
An observant writer, Haze’s lyrics tackle social issues, single-parent upbringings, racism, racial identity and the occasional political rant.
His debut album The Offering was released in December of 2012 with many blogs picking it up through word of mouth. A string of videos released earlier in 2012 built him a strong buzz and has led to requests for guest appearances from all around the world.
His frequent collaborators include Josh Bliss Lighten, Aperiod (who along with Haze form Main Aim), Paranom (of The Tragic Allies) DJ Manipulator, Louie Gonz, Busted Fuse, DJ Bobby Milk, Elijah Divine and Evilldewer.
Haze hasn’t reached his peak yet. He’s always striving to perfect his craft, whether it’s song structure, breath control, delivery or finding the best production he can – he’s working hard at all times.

I Just came across this dude MidaZ recently and I'm really liking what I hear. No idea where he's from but I'll be doin the knowledge to this soon. I had to share this track in the meantime.
I've been sayin for years, "why don't they have any new Christmas songs??" And here goes Casual gettin all sorts of silly makin a song for the holiday! It's not so much about Santa Claus but rather how he is Santa Claus to his daughters and his wife. lol It's actually a really enjoyable track!
This track speaks to the entrepreneur, artist, poet, musician, producer and anyone aspiring to be successful. What that means to each person is unique and this is Glovers perspective. Gotta love the motivational sample used during different parts of the track. Really smooth and laid back flow over a soulful melody.

Chi Cerdas giving y'all a "Reality Check" over an incredible JayOh beat! Lately he's been working on his mixtape Chi Status,"Bringing It Back To The Essence" which is scheduled to be released Friday, Dec 13th, 2013! Stay tuned for that!
Ill Adrenaline Records & Tragic Allies strike again! Adding onto previous releases: Purpose & Confidence, and 7 G.E.M.S. (Tragedy Khadafi & Tragic Allies), Purpose of Tragic Allies teams up with up-and-coming lyricist and latest Tragic Allies & Wreck Shop member Paranom to deliver a 19-track, strong boom-bap heater entitled "Life Outside The Frame".
As already the case for the critically acclaimed 7 G.E.M.S. project, Purpose once again handles the entire production on this offering, ranging from rugged uptempo joints ("Interlude To Your Mood") to jazzy, conscious, and mellow vibes ("Dayz Go By" and "Night Gallery"). Being featured only on two tracks, Purpose this time concentrates fully on providing stellar instrumentals that complement Paranom's excellent lyrical, and even cryptic skills. With the ability to fuse different musical influences into a raw, but soulful sound of Hip-Hop, Paranom's aim is to further evolve an ever growing culture into a more balanced art form, one that's rooted in self-empowerment and realization, freedom, and discovery.
