Kelz teams up with Lil Simz for this track, the first promotional track released in the lead up to Kelz's EP coming February 2012. With a crazy combination of bars, Kelz and Lil Simz unleash fire on Kajmir Royal's production. Entitled Storm Maker, Kelz and Lil Simz are clearly both trying to take the industry by storm with this track.

MC/Producer Announces Release of Upcoming Album With New Single

Multitalented MC/producer hasHBrown is happy to announce the release of his brand new single, "The Death Penalty." This is the first single from his solo sophomore album, Break Something, which will be released as a free download on November 30th.

Coming straight out of Houston, TX, hasHBrown began his rhyming career alongside John Dew and Hip-Phonix with the hip-hop trio, The Council, until 2008 when he started releasing solo mixtapes. Fast forward three years, and now hasHBrown is ready to release Break Something, the follow-up to his cathartic EP, Relationsh*t, featuring guests like Guilty Simpson, Dustin Prestige and Dannie Walker. "It's a departure from my core sound," HB says of the new project. "This project is more influenced by rock and funk. So it's going to sound a lot different, more aggressive."

In keeping with this newfound sound, hasHBrown's first single off of Break Something is "The Death Penalty," a cautionary tale for anybody looking to question his skills or test his authority. "Any person in a leadership role will be challenged by new comers that may want the spot they obtain," explains HB. "In essence, the 'penalty' of leadership could get you killed, and in this song I'm defending my mantle as one of the best newcomers out of Houston, TX."

Although hasHBrown produced many of the songs on Break Something under his other moniker, Jett I. Masstyr, he chose a beat by another Houston producer, YPhoenix, after hearing it at a beat battle. "I'm a sucker for crazy samples and fierce drums," says HB. "We built our relationship from just talking about his production after the battle. Then, he sent it over, and natural inspiration took over." Lyrics like "This the calm before the storm/ above average to the norm/ I'm a savage Jason Bourne/ Contract killer but I'm calm," and heavy guitar-driven samples establish the song's badass attitude and reiterate what hasHBrown is about, which is, according to him, "I'm here, I'm not scared, and I go hard."
