Kazi, born and raised in the Ox, also known as Oxnard California, is ready to drop a plague on the world. Are you ready? Well, be prepared ˜cause this album is a straight “make you feel good / give you goosebumbs / headnodding / type off” album.

Kazi was the first artist to shine on the Stones Throw imprint with the 12″ “Down for the Kaz”, produced by the #1 beat creator Madlib. This 12″ definitely set the standards for the Stones Throw label and was immediatly considered as classic. It gave Kazi a DOPE MC profile. He boosted a couple more dope features on the Lootpack album and on the “music4allcities” compilation. Last year he dropped a collab 12″ with Oh No (Madlib’s brother) and again: an immediate Hip Hop classic.

After a serious time of waiting we are finally blessed with Kazi’s first full lenght album. The album is called “The Plague” and trust me: it is! And that’s just what Hip hop needs nowadays: a PLAGUE that will set the standards back to “woooaaaw this is CLASSIC”.

“The Palgue” is entirely (except for one track produced by Kankick) produced by Oh No the disrupt, one of the West Coasts finest producers and MC’s to be reckoned with.

Oh No (Urb Magazines Next 100 choice) is the brother of Madlib (one of the most sought after producers). Following in his brother’s footsteps he has been causing mad reck on the scene. His production credits include artists like Kazi, Wildchild, KaliWild, Medaphoar, Epitome, Aloe Blacc, Planet Asia, LMNO, LootPack, Infamous MC, Declaime and many others.

“The Plague” features guest appearances by Oh No, Declaime, Wildchild, Aloe Blacc, Spontaneous, Dr.OoP, Medaphoar, Dudley Perkins, CornBread and Infamous MC.

The album will be released on B9000 and hit the stores September 20th. Click this link to hear a small preview
