TYRONE RELEASES NEW SINGLE “PARADISE” FT. RICH TYCOON and LOU STYLES
(+ FULL VIDEO)
TYRONE releases the new single and premieres the video for “Paradise” featuring Rich Tycoon
(Chris Rene’ / San Quinn) and Lou Stylez. The single is now available on Itunes, Amazon, Rhapsody and music retailers globally.
“Paradise”…An Electro-Soul beat, that embraces a Melodic Piano Riff, is only toppings on the track. Truly, the Bassline drives the record while the Drums keep the song moving from verse through chorus. Mario Armstead’s keys, lifts the melody out of monotony, while atmospheric sounds set a tantalizing mood.
Tyrone and Rich Tycoon trade verses about a woman who finds her; “Paradise”, in materials, not in love and commitment. RnB Crooner, Lou Stylez , tells his side of the story on the hook: “I’m trying to please her heart, but she demanded more than I can give…”, he sings, as his heartbreaking, skeptic tone adds feeling on the topic.
The video’s cinematography sets the stage for the sound bed. The red hue and bar backdrop is the perfect blend of soulful “coolness” providing a creative landscape for the unique song. Directed by Tyrone himself, the video is a step in a refreshing direction artistically for the cinematographer; showing his versatility, attention to detail and creativity.
Rich Tycoon (Filthy Rich) of Black Bizness Records made his debut in 1992 on E-Dawg’s; (Sir Mix-A-Lot / Rhyme Cartel Records) “Droptop”. Since then he has been featured on music w/ pop star Chris Rene’ of Simon Cowell’s X Factor, San Quinn, Yukmouth of the infamous, Luniz and many others.
Born in Texas. Raised in LA, Kazy D joined the United States Navy and was introduced to the town by being stationed in Washington. He started Badd Dawg Records in 1995, and was one of Washington State’s 1st Nationally Distributed Rap Artists. Acclaimed Producer Funk Daddy & Seattle’s Underground Majors, DMS dropped the same year. A lot of Seattelites do not know, that Kazy D was an Original Master P/NO LIMIT Affiliate w/ 50,000 units sold!
An accomplished emcee with over 80 cd features, Kazy D left Washington after seeing that the entertainment options were extremely limited. “My CD’s sold on the street hand to hand, w/ no radio play.”, he says. “I find that radio play in Texas and the South region, comes much easier. Shows are more plentiful and they pay more. Seattle has talent but few outlets.”, Kazy explains.
He continues on to say, “I prefer production by Seattle area producers, hands down! However, most Seattle rap acts tend to adhere to an underground sound. This is a mistake, in my opinion. Northwest radio seems to follow the trends instead of setting them, an epic fail. Hip hop’s foundation is regional music presented to an expanded audience known in the biz as a breakthrough hit or crossover. Without a platform for local music the Northwest will continue to be nonexistent. I left Seattle in order to continue to do what I love & get paid for it. As a bi-coastal HIP HOP artist I’ve managed to stay current somehow lol.”
Kazy D aka Blockstarr, released underground classic,
“A LETTER FROM THE GRAVE” in 1995, which sold 12,000 units and was heavily bootlegged. In 1998 he released a double cd entitled, “NATIONWIDE DOUBLE UP” in conjuction w/ Skyline Records w/ 8,000 original units sold. The album featured, 187 Klick. Kazy D returned in 2004 w/ “CHAMPAGNE WISHES KAVIAR DREAMS” featuring, CBO, SPICE 1, C LOC, JT BIGGA FIGGA, BABY BASH & 187 Klick and 15,000 original units were sold.
After a brief hiatus Kazy D returned in 2010 w/ “STREET TAXES”
(The Million Dollar Mixtape) this album featured, Chalie Boy, Kinfolk Kia Shyne, Baby Bash & more! After the breakthrough success of radio, mixtapes and mixshow singles: HAVIN VISIONS & LOUDLIFE, KAZY D is currently performing Nationally and Internationally!
