First off shout out Michael Rodriguez for always sliding through some quality content. I believe he was sending us Sam Lachow and Raz’s press releases and I began to follow Raz Simone a little. Dude has a dope understanding of hip-hop (with a touch of soul/jass influence) and is a nice story teller. His music is a more enlightened view of the streets and his style reminds me a little bit of Ryhmefest who had a solid project a couple years ago. Check out his newest single below.
“Coming off the success of his recent collab EP with Sam Lachow 5 Good Reasons, Raz Simone presents “Cold”. This is the first single & video off his debut project, ‘Solomon Samuel Simone’, which will also be released alongside another EP, ‘Cognitive Dissonance’.
His first EP, ‘Cognitive Dissonance,’ is a project that takes you deep inside the mind of Raz, at some of his darkest points. It is different in the sense of the passion & frustration that comes with the cognitive response of two conflicting ideas. The second project, ‘Solomon Samuel Simone’ is softer, melodic and a more relaxed EP. This is where he is clearly more at ease and able to think a bit clearer. The heavy use of saxophone compliments his bluesy, deep voice and lyrical content, while at the same time representing his inner child, purposefully alluding to the fact that the saxophone was the first instrument he learned to play as a child. An official release date for the project will be announced within the upcoming weeks.”
