Part two available here: Interview with City Haze
Hello City Haze, welcome to Rap and Blues. What do friends call you, what is your nickname?
Thanks for having me. First off I’m no ladies pet (Laughs) Secondly everyone either calls me City or Haze.
Good in my opinion that your music reached me first. I think I got a Street Album called „Star of the city“ from you via kevinnottingham.com in May of this year and I pumped this shit through summer. We drank some Glenlivet to „Tell me whats good“ before hittin´ da club. We had a good summer here in Hamburg, how was yours?
I appreciate the positive feedback! My Summer was great. I got back to performing around the tri-state and packed out a bunch of venues. I did a little partying here and there (Laughs). I didn’t get toooooo crazy but I definitely enjoyed the summer and I looking forward to enjoying 50 more.
The production on your tracks is very solid, always radio playable. Raps and music are from the soul. Who are your „go-to-guys“, producer?
A lot of talented Producers submit records to me on a regular basis. One of my main „Go-to-guys“ is my homie Jimba Frosty. His sound pretty much fits the radio-friendly/smooth style of City Haze.
Did the „Star of the City“ Album helped this Summer with the Girls? I remember havin´ „Feenin“ in da tapedeck, helpin´ me with a girl…
„Star Of The City“ wasn’t necessarily for the girls even though there were a lot of female friendly records on the project. I aimed for the project to sound very Commercial/Musical. Feenin‘ will be on the next LP which is titled „Room Six 9“.
Did it help with the music industry, any new contacts or collabos you want to talk about?
Everything must remain in quiet mode for now (Laughs) sorry I cant leak that information right now.
Where do you see yourself next summer?
Grinding heavier and working three times harder than i did in the summer of 2010.
