City Haze f. LD & Jhoni
"All About You" - HipHopDX.com


Most 19 year olds have absolutely no clue what they want to do for the rest of their lives or if they do, few have the drive or ambition to go out there and get it. This definitely does not apply to Terrell Wilson or City Haze as he is known in New York City’s rap world. Being dubbed a ‘Rising Rap Mogul’ in what is perhaps one of the toughest industries to break into gives one an inkling of the amount of talent this young man has. Stunning one of his producers at a birthday party gave Terrell the confidence that he did have what it takes to be a big name in the music world. Perhaps what is even more incredible than his being only 17 is that City Haze has only been in the underground music scene for just over a year! It was August 2007 when City Haze first introduced his brand of Hip Hop and since then he has been featured in a list of magazines, web sites, radio interviews etc nearly a page long! Using everyday experiences (“either if it deals with the streets or just life in general”), this young artist strives to reach “all types of people”. Infusing his music with creative and versatile ideas that one can easily relate to explains City Haze’s popularity. Looking to the future, Terrell hopes to “branch off into the other aspects of the business” and if his talent and his drive is anything to go by, there is absolutely no doubt that he will definitely get there. - Star Central

Preps for the Release of his Sophomore LP” - CourtneyLuv.com


At only 19 years old, sometimes its just too hard to ignore fresh talent emerging from the streets... Reppin' NYC (S. Bronx & Brooklyn), City Haze has been buzzing with interviews the past few months. I took some time out to shine the light on the City's newest emcee to find out exactly what makes people say he could easily be a future top contender to the game of Hip Hop... - ThatsHipHop.com


With clichés such as “The Next Best Thing” and “A Breath Of Fresh Air” so quickly attributed to every artist today New York’s City Haze is focused on capturing the attention of Hip-Hop lovers everywhere. Stepping onto the independent music scene in Winter of ’07, the emcee has quickly developed a buzz only a few on NYC’s underground can genuinely claim. New York has always generated some of the greatest talent in Hip-Hop but the city’s rap scene has stagnated due to artists wishing to bring back the Golden Era of the 90s. Born and raised between the South Bronx and Brooklyn you won’t hear Haze spewing hardcore rhymes in the customary old school New York fashion. Instead the emcee’s style is progressive; distinguished by a cool and clever easy-listening flow that complements the smooth and silky beats he enjoys rhyming over. He uses everyday experiences everyone can relate to as the source of his music while avoiding industry blueprints to create his own impressions. “I learn something new everyday,” says the young emcee. “I get better and more creative every time I write. I come up with different ideas that every person can comprehend regarding every aspect of life. Hip Hop is as a way of life.” City Haze has been picked as an emcee to watch by a dozen of the most popular Hip-Hop online tastemakers including XXLMag.com, AllHipHop.com, URB.com, HipHopDx.com, DjBooth.net, and hundreds more. His buzz has even circulated the globe as he’s been featured in several international magazines as well . In a short time Haze’s creativity, versatility and dedication have generated a buzz fans love and industry types respect. He has made his own lane and is focused on Hip Hop’s top spot in the decade to come. If you haven’t heard of him yet – well, you’ve been introduced. - Drama Scene Magazine

You can find some artists on every Hip-Hop blog and website there is online, yet show up to one their performances and see you’ll see they have no true fans or following. Others, however, pack a room from wall to wall and actually have people buying their music. Enter Brooklyn rapper, City Haze.

(more after the jump)

Haze has been grinding on the underground scene for two-and-half years with some major accomplishments under his belt that not too many can rival. With hit records like “Lost In Tokyo” produced by RZA and “Feenin’” featuring Grammy-nominated singer Pleasure P in his catalogue, the Underground Music Awards “#1 Contender” is rubbing shoulders with the right individuals.

The Bronx born rapper isn’t living off his laurels though. Haze intends on showing the music world that the best has yet to come. On the back of the recently released video to his Universal distributed single “Tell Me What’s Good” as well as his smooth playalistic single “Nothin’ Ova Doe” produced by super-producer Drumma Boy.

The streets are about to get steamy as the temperature continues to rise now that the Winter months are behind us, but that's not the reason they're about to get hazy - and we're not talking about the sticky icky rappers love to toke up either. We are talking about New York's own City Haze, who has been heating up the game with good music as the Summer approaches.

First he spoiled Hip Hop's backpacking crowd with his RZA produced leak "Lost In Tokyo", which took Hip Hop on a long-distance metaphoric ride to the land of the rising sun. Then he dropped his Universal Music Group-backed single "Tell Me What's Good" that is sure to leave your girl in frenzy. Haze even addressed a sarcastic comment Soulja Boy made some time ago on another leak we featured.

All in all, the Brooklyn/South Bronx representative has positioned himself among a group of artists who are going to elevate their status within the game by year's end.

I had an opportunity to politick with City Haze recently and he was cool enough to talk to us about his recent leaks and musical versatility, his deal with Universal and any qualms with Soulja Boy. - The9Elements.com


A couple of months ago rising Brooklyn emcee City Haze leaked a track off his upcoming EP, Star of the City, called “Lost In Tokyo” where he metaphorically takes hip hop on a winding voyage from the genre’s birthplace in New York to the land of the rising son, Japan, with the help of Wu Tang Clan beatsmith Rza that awestruck hip hop’s blogosphere.

It’s safe to say the song marked Haze’s arrival as a player on hip hop’s landscape. If that isn’t enough, the young emcee has already garnered the attention of Universal Music Group who has provided him with distribution for his ladies hit “Tell Me What’s Good” via iTunes.

In a brief period of time City Haze has already position himself as an artist to be reckoned with. With the impeding release of his EP coming this May, a modest Haze says he’s only getting started and has much more to accomplish in his career.

Using his RZA produced track 'Lost in Tokyo,' and singles 'Tell Me What's Good' and 'Lovin' It' to reach the masses, City Haze is creating a buzz both Stateside and overseas. Influenced by his life experiences and the '90s golden age of hip-hop, his debut LP 'Star Of The City' is available today (May 19), so The Boombox caught up with Haze to discuss what's on the horizon for the South Bronx-based emcee. - AOL / The Boombox


As a teenager, City Haze was inspired by the music of The Notorious B.I.G and Jay-Z. By the time he was 17 years old, the South Bronx native began writing lyrics as a way to express himself. He soon found himself in the studio and eventually established a buzz in the New York area.


Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA heard some of his music and produced his single, “Lost in Tokyo.” Now that his single has picked up momentum in the U.S. and internationally, City Haze is poised to bring New York hip-hop back to prominence - Rolling Out Magazine / RollingOut.com


New York emcee City Haze straddles the industry’s doorsteps with his own unique impartial brand of music. Not conforming to what’s popular, Haze feels he will soon be able to supply good music to listeners everywhere. Haze's has a single on iTunes "Tell Me What's Good" featuring R&B crooner K.O., plus his "Lost In Tokyo" single, produced by RZA, ignites curiosity. With a deal through Starr Scream Entertainment/Universal Music Group, that curiosity may soon be quenched.

With both New York as his backdrop and a versatile, challenging sound City Haze is arguably bigger abroad than he is in his own backyard. That may soon change, with an album coming and a growing movement of music. Meet DXnext's return to the five boroughs with a man whose rhymes are anything but foggy, City Haze. - HipHopDX.com
