BEWARE X Stu Skaggs – Tellumbahdit

11 Jan


Stu Skaggs is only here to “Tellumbahdit.” There’s no more holding back. After a booming release with “Bang Bang,” the Detroit rapper’s back with another new single aiming to get people talking. Atop timely production from yours truly, Stu rides the vibe with impeccable ease, kicking his verbal acrobatics with such a casual delivery, you won’t even realize how witty each line actually is. Look for more high-end spit when Stu’s new StuForDaSoul project drops later this quarter, produced entirely by this guy.…

ALLiTiZ Feat. Chavis Chandler – “Influence” (Prod. By BEWARE)

23 Mar

Influence REMIX COVER

Can’t keep up with all the new technology? That’s intentional. On the “iNFLUENCE (Remix),” ALLiTiZ warns of rapidly advancing tech taking over and how our willingness to build our replacements will eventually catch up with us. Chavis Chandler is causing his own “Influence” right now, going up like drones and plugging into the game like a D-Wave supercomputer.

Listen to “Influence” below.

Were Not Alone (remix)

There’s a good chance you won’t know what the hell ALLiTiZ is talking about on “We’re Not Alone.” But, that’s his point. Atop warped production from yours truly, the unfiltered Motor City rapper and his fellow researcher Truthseekah deliver high energy raps about documented conspiracies and alien races walking among us. If you don’t believe him, listen closely and Izzy will tell you exactly where he’s getting his information — so you can find proof for yourself. Fox Mulder would be proud.

iWonder drops this March.

Red Pill – “My Day” (Prod. By BEWARE)

30 Aug

Red PIll my day beware

In the middle stages of putting together Woodward Ave, I made a beat called “Bandolions” I thought Red Pill would sound perfect on. However, the sample-based track is a bit more upbeat than a lot of his material, so I came up with a concept I thought would bring the best out of him and the beat. The concept was Pill – who is typically a downtrodden rapper – waking up and having the best luck possible, all day. Having covered him from my Smoking Section days, I hit him up, pitched him the concept and beat, and bam….the rest is history.

“My Day” is just an easygoing, head nodding story song that’s hard not to dig. One of my favorites off Woodward Ave. Shoutout Nick Speed for scratching on the hook.
