Young Crazy hasn’t dropped an entire project in over a year taking time to complete features with some frequent collaborators, traveling the country to avoid writers block along with going on tour with label mate Bandhunta Izzy. During Episode 042 of our podcast with the Norfolk star he mentioned that fans have been asking him when is he going to drop some music and what is it going to be and Crazy simply said he’d been replying “Paint Music”and Crazo Picasso is precisely that. If you are unfamiliar to what “Paint Music” is, it’s a term that Crazy coined himself where he says the music inspires the ones that came up like he did growing up in the Stoney Point neighborhood of Norfolk, Virginia. In typical Young Crazy fashion he keeps the features slim on Crazo Picasso only enlisting up and coming SuperSneakySlime on the fifth track 5.56 along with featuring Virginia Beach native Fi$hskale Rabble on track number four titled 17 (Glocks Don’t Jam). Anyone who is familiar with Young Crazy knows that some of his biggest hits like Molly Talk & Participate have had production from notable producer and frequent collaborator Ready Rock James hailing from Hampton, Virginia he produces First Class & 5.56 on this project which also happen to be our favorite two standout songs. First Class has an amazing intro snippet from an interview where a gentlemen is asked about Picasso’s art and he replies “I think it’s fair to say there was art before Picasso and there will be art after Picasso and it’s not the same it’s completely transformed” Crazy using this quote from an interview shows why he is one of our favorite artist just how witty he is by utilizing the second part of that quote “it’s not the same it’s completely transformed” eluding to the fact that he has taken art and made it native to himself and others similar which in our book solidifies him as one of the best artist to ever come from the Hampton Roads. Take a listen to Crazo Picasso here.

The past two years have been tough for Kanye West fans as most have abandoned the once beloved Chicago native that created classic hip hop albums College Dropout and Late Registration. Last year Kanye openly supported president Donald Trump, is said to be the key piece that started a hip hop war between Drake and Pusha T, released an album that didn’t live up to what many have come to expect from him and plenty more issues we could name that ultimately led to majority of hip hop fans considering him “Canceled” This year Kanye has been a bit more subtle in his actions with the bulk of the attention being geared toward his now weekly ‘Sunday Service’ that has attracted the likes of Chris Tucker, Brad Pitt, Justin Bieber and plenty more of the who’s who in Hollywood and Hip Hop alike to come see what most have been calling a “spiritual uplifting environment” where West and his choir led by director Jason White. With an album set to release many are considering this all a ploy by Kanye to ease his way back into the good graces of the African American community. The speculation of this led us to Kanye West 2013 interview on Power 106 Los Angeles where he laid out his 10 year plan/goals. After watching where do you stand on Kanye West, Is he really trying to get back in the good graces of the African American community or is he just following the path he spoke about 6 years ago ?
