Track: DJ YRS Jerzy ft. Chox-Mak: "1995"
I think we can all agree that the 90's were a good decade for hip hop music. Nas, Talib Kweli, Black Sheep, Onyx, Naughty by Nature, NWA, and Lost Boyz were amongst my long list of faves for the decade. Today I was put on to an underground artist with old school flava on some new generation beats.
The track titled '1995' is undoubtedly the hottest hip hop track that I have heard in a minute. Chox lyrical skills is like Nas and Fabolous had a baby that produced perfection in the form of story weaving and metaphors. His SoundCloud offers an extensive range of lyrical delivery ensuring every track is an extreme contrast to the last.
"My orbit is fabulous we on that nice shit/ we got tools plenty hammers and some vice grips/ ya flow broke im hot damn and quite sick/ I'm so cold I turn beats to ice chips"
Those few bars have skyrocketed Chox to the number 2 spot on my list of underground faves with Jean Michaels holding the number 1 spot. I believe this one track has the battery hip hop needs right now to jump start the call for real talent and lyricists. I for one am a hardcore fan of mellow out music that makes you want to two step with a bottle of Hennessy.

When asked about his artist, manager DJ YRS Jerzy had this to say:
"Working with Chox-Mak is like working with an older brother he always makes dope music that people like. I can definitely see him being one of the biggest artists in the game one day. We have been working with a couple producers we recently worked with MMG's own Yung Ced for a track called "NLA". We are going to be working with Frencizzle who also produces for GBE as well as many other big name artists."
