Hiatus

What's good party people?, just a quick note to say sorry for not updating the blog in a while, I am dealing with some pretty heavy personal family issues and haven't been able to concentrate on the blog and I have also been away...I will return sometime in the future

In the meantime, thanks very much for all of the comments.



Peace

Jaz

Update: I 'd like to wish all of my readers a very Happy Christmas and once again, thanks so much for all of the kind comments and feedback, it is mad appreciated and I will return to the blog next year.

Savant (of RAREBREED)

I got sent this dope EP by Savant and felt that it deserved a post...

Tucson, AZ resident, by way of El Paso, TX and Chicago, IL, Gregory "Savant" Daggett has always possessed a passion for music and literary arts. Involved in general music since age 7, and a trumpet player since age 10, he wasn't officially exposed to hip hop until age 12. Although no particular emcee caught his ear right away, he was intrigued with the entire concept of an individual or a group of people speaking over instrumentation in an intensely rhythmic lyrical form, oftentimes telling semi-autobiographic tales relating to a fictionalized counterpart. He became inspired to write and partake of the art of emceeing after hearing the 1999 classic "Black on Both Sides" by Dante Smith and honed his emceeing chops at the lunch room ciphers of Chicago high schools Whitney M. Young Magnet and George Washington Carver. He has since dedicated every verse, every bar and every word to achieving the ever elusive sense of balance in this hallowed art form. His debut release, "The Delayed Entry EP" serves as proof.
