Emerging Miami Hip-Hop artist Swazy Styles presents the remix for his hit single "Birthday Suit" via VIP Music, featuring Hip-Hop heavyweight Lil Jon.
"My label VIP Music thought it would be a perfect fit for me to get Lil Jon on the 'Birthday Suit' remix. It added that special extra hype to the already infectious dance rhythm. It feels great to have a feature from Lil Jon himself! It really gives 'Birthday Suit' that official stamp -- not to mention when it plays in the club, the crowd goes wild and the DJ's love it," says Swazy Styles.
"Birthday Suit", produced by Lavi Hoss, is one of the most-hyped tracks in the southern regions with his unmistakable signature sound. "Birthday Suit" became the #2 independent song in the country and radio stations like Miami's Power 96, WPOW Miami, KKND Power 102.9 New Orleans, and XHTZ San Diego picked up the record for heavy airplay.
The official music video for "Birthday Suit", directed by G-Unit/Shadyville's DJ Epps, shows Swazy's undeniable skill to combine his fun persona with a rocking club record that will make the people go dance not only in the club.
The Burnerz are a new duo consisting of Zumbi of the hip-hop group Zion I and the Houston-based Trackmasters producer, The Are. Now, after a year of scratching out rhymes, making beats, mixing, and mastering, The Burnerz—who met on tour in Europe in 2003—just completed one of the most energizing independent hip-hop albums of the year.
The Burnerz recruited The Grouch, OneBeLo, Martin Luther, and C-Holiday for the album. “Instead of going through layers of editing (like we do for Zion I),” explains Zumbi of his approach, “We tried to capture the raw emotion of both lyrics and beats for this album.”
Zumbi has always set a new standard for socially conscious hip-hop and this album is no exception. The track “The Edge” where The Grouch and Zumbi spit rhymes about snatching victory from the jaws of defeat. “It's about feeling hopeless and fearful, but having just enough strength to turn around and confront one's demons,” explains Zumbi.
