IG LIVE TAKEOVER WITH BILLY DANZE (M.O.P.)
Life-long fans and Hip Hop purists who follow Danze are aware of his mission to bridge the generational gap in Hip Hop music and reinvent a unified comradery within the culture. #TheListeningSession provides an impeccable collection of soundscapes that’s sure to entice both the younger generation and older generation of music connoisseurs. TooBusy, who produced the entire 13-track single, incorporates a superb blend of 70’s soul, jazz, boom-bap, classic NY bass, distinct innovative cadences, as well as a west coast splash. He intertwines those sounds in an unparalleled fashion that heightens the raw emotion and epic lyrical dances from Danze.
Although each track is different in style, flow, and deliverance, you can’t escape the dominating theme of who Billy Danze is and what he stands for or his undeniably monumental stance in music history and music present. The 13 tracks are brimming with in-your-face quotable bars and animalistic ad-libs sure to have listeners ready to slap everyone’s mama after an epileptic fit!
The Timberland wearing super-hero breaks down NY minutes while paying homage to the front line, those doing time, methods to use a rubber band, and coming out the streets legal. He also declares a need to reinstate the “G” code…ANTE UP…you don’t want to become face to face with a pillow. On the flip side, Danze reminds us there’s more to him than a monstrous voice blaring from speakers or tearing down stages overseas.
‘Webusy #TheListeningSession‘ defines Danze as a vintage, life-size collectible, and in a world permeated with broken ground, Danze remains planted. You can refer to him as a black Jesus, yet quick to cut you to pieces. He leaves no room for comparison and this is just a taste of what’s to come of #TheBillyDanzeProject. Remember, to stay risen you must “worship the ground”.
