Connecticut emcee Hayze has recently joined the ranks of Esoteric, Bronze Nazareth, and MHz Legacy as the newest member of Man Bites Dog Records' roster, and has also become Apathy's young protégée. With the support of his potent new team, Hayze is gearing up to release his mixtape The Smokers Section, due out this December.
Hayze linked with fellow Connecticut rapper Apathy by pure chance when the King of CT walked into Hayze's recording session at Smoke The World's studio. "He sounded mad different from anything I was hearing at the time," says Apathy. "Most fans would probably expect me to champion someone who has a similar sound as Demigodz or AOTP, but that's exactly the opposite of what I heard from him and what I dug about his music."
