Pushing all the sh*t to the side because he knows he's well on the way to his rise, Stazi stomps down doors and clears entrances on his first debut release, The Purge.
This is what you call the sound of VICTORY. Stazi singlehandedly claims his spot in the industry with The Purge. He's manifesting his greatness and pushing his pen until the ink runs dry as he goes head-to-head with his peers. His flow pours out graciously yet aggressively like a waterfall; it's slippery, so don't trip.
The Purge blasts with immense energy over a full instrumental backdrop, and his voice adds to the energetic ascension with raspy, deep tones and a gentle cadence that bounces off the beat. He reflects on his come up, remembers the struggles he faced, and silences the stereotypes. At this point, he's the Lebanese Rap King, putting on for his culture, THE culture, and the city.
"This song drew inspiration from the events in my life. At the time of conception, I was doing it rough, having just been kicked out of home for the first time in life and with no real source of income or sufficient knowledge to stay afloat—I was running off pure determination and resilience. I had nowhere to go; it was just my loyal dog, Smokey, and me. I was faced with two choices: sink or swim, and I kept swimming. After some time, I met the Undrovth Boys, and they let me sleep in their studio until I figured things out, which felt like a clear sign from the universe. This lifestyle shift was the true inspiration for The Purge." - Stazi
Stazi bodied this beat, and despite the full-bodied audible experience, the beat has a soothing effect that embodies the power of alchemy. Turning distractions into focus, misplacement into courage, and fear into strength through all the instrumental elements.
You may need a few plays to catch his wordplay; Stazi is quick with it and witted; peep the Pluto bar. It’s truly evident that he’s here for blood and to take ownership of the crown, which will rightfully be his due to his level of persistence, motivation, and determination. The man needs to be worldwide!
If you love Hip Hop don't hesitate to add Stazi to your rotation, and if you're in Melbourne, pen in one of his shows with fellow immaculate drill rapper Stigma. These two are superstars, and the energy in their music translates to their stage presence.
