Review by Steve 'Flash' Juon

Artist: Lil Haze f/ Ray J
Title: Work That Body
Label: Birmingham Entertainment

So far best known for his friendship with (and a single featuring) the Ying Yang Twins, Lil Haze clearly wants to blow a much bigger cloud of smoke on "Work That Body." From reading a few interviews Haze did the beat here may be by a producer named Ole Tyma, but if it turns out I'm wrong feel free to send me a correction. Whoever produced "Work That Body" deserved the credit they were due for giving newcomer Haze a pleasant R&B crossover beat that reminds me of Plies "Put It on Ya" in the track's power to take the rapper up the crossover charts. As for actual vocal tone and delivery, think Lil Wayne and you'll come pretty close to nailing Haze's style. Ray J provides fair support on the hook even though he's never been a favorite crooner of mine - let's just say he doesn't fuck up the good thing Haze has going. "I see you're kinda shy, so I'ma be nice/You're lookin sweeter than pie so I'ma get a lil' slice." Well Haze isn't profound lyrically, but he isn't making me cringe here, so "Work That Body" may just be one of those rare gestalt tracks that is more than the sum of its parts.
