After creating numerous mixtapes with artists like Capone (of Capone-n-Noreaga) and AZ, Massachusetts native DJ DeadEye has finally decided to break out nationally. The first step to doing that is a single, and in this case it is Girl Interrupted. While the cut might share its name with the famed ’90s flick starring Angelina Jolie, the new Girl takes a completely different route, telling the harsh story of life as experienced by girls in this nation’s ghettos. Labelmate and producer Statik Selektah supplies rhymers Skyzoo and Termanology with lounge-like piano keys and clips of conversations between various femme fatales over which to flow. Though DeadEye and his guests have seen plenty of young women suffer from poor self-confidence, Girl Interrupted encourages an individual hustle that is safe and responsible. Expect additional tales of life in and out of the hood when DJ DeadEye’s debut, Substance Abuse, is released early next year.
