22-year old Birmingham, Alabama MC Lil’ Haze might have just released the very song that could put his city on the mainstream hip-hop map for good. Whut It Iz has everything a Southern artist would need to make a hit: a new catchphrase for the hook (answering “what it is” with “what it ain’t”), a well-established collaboration (sure-shot ATL entertainers the Ying Yang Twins), and a club-ready synth-powered beat. While it might not be ideal for those home computer speakers, Haze had other types of speakers (club and car stereos) in mind when he put together this banger. His debut album, Doin’ Da Most, should hit the streets later this year.
