Edit: Link for Ciz’ Mixtape: Tailgating- The 30 Second Rule is now at the bottom of the post.
In an attempt to clear up any possible misconceptions that I’m some backpack-bound, underground apologist who can’t get down with anything that doesn’t involve polysyllabic “scientific” rappers, or cursory, hackneyed cliches about “keeping it real,” I present to you the latest track from North Philly’s 2ew Gunn Ciz
One of the brightest lights from the burgeoning Philly scene, to reiterate what I wrote in May,” Ciz has a strong street buzz, good news for the Washington Post crowd who mistakenly conflate talent with street cred (it happens.) Billing himself as “crack rap meets backpack,” Ciz has both the requisite “swagger” and drug-dealing bonafides to satisfy the superficial set and enough clever punchlines to please the Skyzoo scene. Everyone wins.
