TRUE Hip Hop fans towards the end of the year comes what could possibly be the 12 inch release of the year. BAZERK ,
flagship member of the Underground Hip Hop Super-group H.E.O.R.B. returns to us on a solo campaign raw as ever with selections from his upcoming album "Tha Struggle"
Produced & executed by underground Icon Baba Zoom under the Unorthodox Beatz label/7th Sign Music umbrella...BAZERK brings forth a product that's fresh & new..yet somewhat nostalagic...One can't help but feel the classic vibe of Hip Hop's glory days.
The 1st track "L.e.t.h.a.l." is unbridaled raw Hip Hop. Punchy lyrics & catchy phrases ride Baba Zoom's innovative grooves & rythums. Clever sounds & distortions create an unorthodox yet funk filled sound for BAZERK to work with.
The 3rd track "Tha Struggle" is a serious..thought provoking jam that raises awareness to todays social ills..The straight forward produced track gives BAZERK's lyrics the proper feel & mood..The remixes for each track are arguably better than the originals. There is no end to Baba Zoom's creative musical talents as he employs the guitar liks of Klymaxx's Cheryl "Unruley" Cooley..turntable scratches of DJ Shanx..live bass of Ron(440)Roseboro..as well as J-$imms on the drums.
With instrumentals & acapellas along with cameos from D'range, NetwerQ & others rounding out the project..BAZERK's 12 inch is poised for distinction..We've come to expect nothing less from 7th Sign Music & Baba Zoom.

I just peeped out the new Bazerk “L.e.t.h.a.l.” 12inch featuring Cheryl “Unruley” Cooley of Klymaxx, Dj Shanx, Mark Moon, Einstine, D’Range, Network Q, J-$imms, Sun Ron (440) Roseboro and Baba Zoom. The original track starts off very ethereal sort of like a horror movie soundtrack, then J-$imms sticks the snares for a sick vocal array. The remix goes straight for the jugular to finish the funk. But don’t sleep on the B-side either! Because “the Struggle” is the real “Gem”! Everybody can associate with the struggle. I’m Looking forward to the full Bazerk LP release… keep spitting that Knowledge!
