PR: Jay-Z Brings Out the Best in Up and Coming Maryland Rapper

Courtesy Build a Buzz.

It takes confidence to use classic Jay-Z instrumentals as the backdrop to your first mixtape but that's just what Maryland-based rapper Verbiage has had the guts to do. My Life in Syntax is just as much a tribute to the iconic rapper as it is an introduction to Verbiage’s introspective journey through life’s ups and downs. Consisting of only 7 songs, Verbiage chose some of Sean Carter’s most melodic tracks to bring listeners into his world.

The 22 year old artist’s lyrics are no fabrication.  Losing his mother to cancer at 16 followed by a string of family hardships has molded Verbiage into the artist he is today. A classically trained pianist since elementary school, Verbiage came into his own as a producer first.  As a teen, making beats came just as easy as writing rhymes. Shortly after graduating from high school, Verbiage got what seemed like his big break producing for the likes of J Hood, Young Buck, Rich Boy, Ray Cash, 2 Pistols and Yukmouth. Unfortunately, after a dry spell and bills piling up, Verbiage was obligated to get a full time job spending his remaining free time working on his first self produced album. However, realizing that listeners may not be interested in yet another album from an unknown producer/rapper, Verbiage decided to use familiar Jay-Z instrumentals to compliment his heart felt lyrics. My Life in Syntax was born.

Written in just 7 days, My Life in Syntax was titled after his uncanny ability to cleverly flip words and punch lines about his personal struggles. Engineered by his partner Anom the Phenom, the project is dedicated to his mom. With artists like Kendrick Lamar, Big K.R.I.T., Kanye West, Nas, and J. Cole inspiring Verbiage to be lyrical without sacrificing substance, he's confident that listeners will connect with his message and passionate delivery.  “People are always looking for an artist with a fresh take on things,” says verbiage. “I feel like there's a greater cause here so this is the perfect medium for people to see what I'm trying to do.”  His mom would be proud. 

My Life in Syntax is currently available at www.TheVerbiage.bandcamp.com. To learn more, visit the website at www.TheVerbiage.com. Connect with Verbiage on Twitter at @TheVerbiage or @B3Music.

On the album, rapper's Copywrite, Tage Future, and Jakki Da Motamouth, along with in-house producer RJD2, will finally deliver the long-awaited official group album that fans have been waiting for since MHz first hit the scene in the late-'90s. Influential member Camu Tao, who passed in 2008 away following a battle with lung cancer, will also maintain a heavy presence on the album, with a number of never-before-heard verses appearing on a number of songs.

Mello Music Group is ecstatic to announce Dice Game, a 16 track collaborative album between Detroit’s Guilty Simpson & Apollo Brown. The former’s work with Madlib and Dilla already establish him as one of the current greats on the mic and the latter’s heralded music with OC and his own group, The Left, hint towards a similar path in his own canon. The Motor City titans join forces to create an unabashedly hardcore record, without catering to the club or radio.

The full-length album is rife with aggressive content that does not sacrifice quality and musicality. This is music for OG’s, for heads who hunger for that quality street music before the genre by-and-large made a caricature of itself.  Though the block may be getting icy by release November 13th, stay on the corner with a few veterans and shoot a Dice Game.

What up folks! Hope your summers were good & that you're ready for Autumn!

Since the release of my album 'People Hear What They See', I've been busy practicing with my band & getting ready to hit the road. Figured it was only right to tour with a band since so much of the album was composed of live instrumentation. http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/people-hear-what-they-see/id516330937 .

Dates for my European tour are below, north American dates will be available soon. You can find a few US dates already listed on my website oddiseemusic.com. http://www.oddiseemusic.com/#0af/custom_plain .
I'll be doing a diary of my life & times on the road this trip. Make sure to visit complex.com at the end of the tour to see photos & videos.

Need more of a reason to come check us out if we're in your city? Here's a brand new live performance video of 'Let It Go' the band & I shot recently by my homie Tone. This & more on tour!
