Dazzie Dee’s resurgence may be what the West Coast needs in a time where there is more access to artists and music. The crazy narrative that the West Coast has lost its dominance couldn’t be more of a fallacy. Music lovers may feel this way in part mostly due to the fact major media outlets just are not tapped into what is happening.
Dazzie Dee has dropped an EP and two albums in less than 2 years all with notable respected producers and DJs along with strategically assisted guest features from the likes of Chuck D of Public Enemy, Glasses Malone, Trizz, Ice Cube, J-Dee of the Lench Mob, Ras Kass and WestCoast Stone just to name a few. Along with consistent promotion from Dazzie himself. And of course, West Coast Styles has been along for this glorious ride.
Dazzie Dee has made it his mission to bring dope rhymes and beats back to West Coast Hip Hop. His production team The Beat Slapperz craft dope sample heavy West Coast swing hip hop beats that Dazzie effortlessly glides over with creative storytelling and cinematic interludes the music and formula make for a potent product. And add flavor to a cookie-cutter industry where only a few have found their way, while at the current moment, the majority are struggling to find their own identity.
It’s a fresh breeze of art and creative know-how that comes from over 30 years in Hip Hop. Yet another painstaking narrative of age gets disproven once again. There is hope for West Coast Hip Hop and Hip Hop in general. The foundational elements never seem to fail! Check out Dazzie Dee’s “Pacific Standard Time” It’s one of those albums you can just let play straight through.
