What do you get when you toss Dirty South and DMV hip-hop into a blender, add a dash of pure aural adrenaline, and hit “puree?” You get HaZiQ aLi an ATL/D.C. dual representative whose region-crossing brand of “U-Can-Do-It Music” will leave even the most jaded listeners feeling energized and ready to face the day. Previously heard on U-N-I‘s Reach for the Sky, the emcee is back to make his solo debut with Livin Larger, the latest single off his forthcoming full-length. Nesby Phips handles production duties here, crafting an upbeat, percussion-driven backdrop as Ali delivers verses as inspiring as they are braggadocious; after giving listeners a tour of his luxurious digs (12-foot ceilings, six bedrooms, the works!), he shifts into full-on motivational-seminar mode, encouraging listeners to take initiative and go for the gold: “When you’re young you’d better chase your dreams, ‘fore they start chasin’ you.” Need more HaZiQ Ali in your life? Keep it locked – Champion Sound isn’t set to drop till winter, but we’ll keep you supplied with all the latest tunes.
