C Keys & Kazi “Barburyem” [Video]
West coast heavyweight Kazi teams up with Bay Area spitter C Keys for an upcoming collaborative project entitled “Keys 2 Kazi” to be released on April 26th. But in the interim, they share the visuals for their song “Barburyem“. Kazi known for his work with legendary producer Madlib, he connects with C Keys who is in rare form as he brings nothing but raw, unfiltered lyrics peppered with ear-grabbing pop references and punchlines that hit the base of the skull. The visuals see the duo link up on a gloomy and rainy day, capturing the ominous vibe of the track – with the footage of graph writers spraying throws in the city on a dark day adding to and accentuating the haunting synths and thumping drum.
Though well known for his emcee work over the past two decades with such notable friends as Madlib, Oh No and The Lootpack, the upcoming release is a grand showcase of Kazi’s work as a producer. C Keys appears as the only emcee on the album with a few guest spots including Guilty Simpson.
