"Playback (2013)"

While the rap scene in neighboring Houston has a big reputation, bigger names, and one truly screwed-up style, Austin's own hip-hop community has always struggled to maintain momentum. On Saturday, the Chronicle showcases some of our favorite local hip-hop acts through a free, all-ages throwdown at the Scoot Inn that includes the League of Extraordinary G'z, Kydd Jones, 10YR, KB the Boo Bonic, Phranchyze, Krypol Haze, and upstarts Magna Carda. Both grills and mics start cooking at 5pm. More information in this weeks Music listings. - The Austin Chronicle

"Music Review - Krypol Haze (Opera House Music Presents)"

Krypol Haze
(Opera House Music)

Krypol Haze looks like a cross between Rittz and Roach Gigz, and he raps like a bass-heavy Tuk da Gat from Austin's League of Extraordinary G'z. His debut LP, self-titled and released through local imprint Opera House Music, mixes murky and Memphian ("Almighty Dollar," "Today Might Be My Last," which features Three 6 Mafia expat Project Pat) with the triumphant and soulful ("Here We Are Again," "Celebrate Like a Champion"), creating an uplifting chase of the "Almighty Dollar" that "find[s] sun in the shittiest weather." "Those who choose to wait will be sitting there forever," raps Haze over the "Dream On"-biting "Try Success," the album's centerpiece. "I got too much riding on this shit to take a loss." Don't blame Krypol Haze for maintaining the mindset that he's the best there ever was. Dude knows the story's now or never.

"Music Review - Induced"


I want to start off this review by referencing another review. In the Keith Corona CD review, I had stated that I thought the tracks done by Da Bosnian sounded almost identical to others on the project. I DID NOT SAY THEY WEREN'T GOOD!!! I actually liked the tracks individually. On this CD though, I think Krypol Haze compliments all the production. From the lyrical style to the arrangement of the music, I loved this CD from beginning to end. His flow kept me listening and always curious to what he was saying next. "Choose A Pimp" had a good R&B feel to it and had me rewinding to hear it again. The tone of his voice draws you in and makes you say "DAMN!!!". The actual flow is not as metaphorical as some, but the delivery of the lyrics is AWESOME!!! "Get Away" sounds like a radio hit if it was only edited. "One Night Stand" and a few others reminded me of an early Eminem for some reason, and please take that as a compliment. The quality of this CD is way better than most CDs I have heard recently. Even though the packaging of the CD was less than expected, once I heard the project, that fact was totally ignored. This CD sounds like it could have NATIONAL appeal if pushed in the right way. Even the hilarious "Pick Up Some Rubbers" had me rolling. As far as the negative, I think the Journey sample was overused in "Small Town Bitch", even though it is still an alright song. If there were any other production flaws, they are not noticeable from the way that Krypol Haze holds your attention. I am anxious to hear his next project!!!

RATING: (on a scale of 1-10)....... 9 - Todd Engle (88.7 FM)

"Weird City Hip-Hop Festival"

The Weird City Hip-Hop Festival returns for a second year with a vengeance, pulling out the big timbers at Delta Millworks, located at Fifth and Springdale. There’s mystery to the new digs, a lumber mill smack in the heart of East Austin. Equally mysterious is the headliner’s row – specifically the inclusion of ever-elusive savant Jay Electronica.
Setting itself up as Austin’s early fall classic – Sept. 18 & 19 – the front line includes mercurial Detroit rapper Danny Brown, garrulous Bay Area wordsmith Aesop Rock, and resident hooligan MC (and Austin constant) Freddie Gibbs. Former mixtape maven turned Interscope signee Charles Hamilton arrives trending up, reigniting a career miraculously reborn after numerous missteps. The Harlem rapper and former XXL Freshman has fought depression and bipolar disorder..

New Orleans’ Electronica, who released “Road to Perdition” featuring his label boss Jay-Z in March, has reemerged after his dalliance with a UK Rothschild heir in full Fruit of Islam regalia. He was previously scheduled for a December 2014 date at the Mohawk, so this is something of a makeup date. Heads will be hopeful the flighty MC stays put, at least through “Exhibit C.”

The bill is packed with Austin luminaries, such as two-time Austin Band of the Year, Riders Against the Storm, who are currently prepping a new release. Ditto for Dat Boy Supa, who crested to new heights with 2014’s Supacabra. Youth is served with Magna Carda, still kicking a July residency at Holy Mountain.

Local crews roll up en masse, including talented misfits – and recent Chronicle Cookout highlights – Subkulture Patriots and the mighty LNS Crew. Swang and bang set the League of Extraordinary Gz appears in many iterations, including Green Room’s Tuk Da Gat, S. Dot, Eric Dingus, and Dowrong, and Lowkey as a solo act. Continuing the two and over theme, super vets Crew54 put in the “Labor.”

Austin Mic Exchange host and Weird City founder Protextor, who just dropped new single “Austin,” maintains performance mode. Verbosity doubles down with a changed and forward-marching Scuare+, who’s flipped his sound considerably – to the positive. “Farah Flossitt” herself, KB the Boo Bonic, floats in on a new spaced-out single, “Stars Ain’t For Us,” featuring the Moon Guys.

Perennial ATX favorites Doughbeezy and Fat Tony make the trip from Houston.

Shows start 3pm Friday and at noon on Saturday. Two-day passes are $65 or $150 for VIP treatment. More at the Weird City Hip-Hop hub.

Krypol Haze - The Come Down (Album JULY 2016)



After releasing his self titled debut album in 2013 Krypol Haze quickly made a name for himself on the local scene with his clever lyrics and bass heavy beats. With features from local heavy hitters East35 and platinum recording artist Project Pat the album received 3 out of 4 stars in the Austin Chronicle which led Haze to open up for acts such as Juicy J, Geto Boys, Da Mafia 6ix and Rittz while being an official showcasing artist at the 2014, '15 and '16 SXSW music festival.

His latest single 'Smokin N Snortin' features Lil Wyte which is to be followed up with a full album July 2016.
