Mass Effect :: Blastfamous USA Drops ‘BUSA Flock EP’

The collective that is busa flock continues to grow and intrigue.  Recently, Blastfamous USA introduced us to the busa flock concept via the Pull Up video, which featured an amalgamation of Blastfamous USA and Blackillac.  Now that the EP has hit the airwaves, the picture is much clearer in regards to the membership… on top of those previously mentioned, MobleyFort Never and BLXPLTN all pitch in to help create a project with equal parts energy, urgency and intellect.  Blastfamous USA has made it crystal clear in their short existence that they are a force to be reckoned with, and now that the flock has a roster of hard hitting peers, there’s no telling how far they can all fly.

Making Tracks :: Blastfamous USA + Blackillac Connect For ‘Pull Up’

The magic that can occur in the rare instances where you introduce old friends to new friends only for everyone to get along is hard to match.  Maybe that’s why it seemed inevitable that Zeale Rapz would find a way to link his multiple successful ventures into a single stream of dopeness.  His longtime companionship/collaborative efforts with Phranchyze, along with their mutual friendship of Gary Clark Jr., resulted in the creation of Blackillac.  Meanwhile, Zeale Rapz had forged a newer, sharper and more politically driven connection with the killer production duo of NGHT HCKLRS, resulting in the lightning fast creation and maturation of Blastfamous USA.  With both camps combining forces for the upcoming busa flock EP, it was only fitting that they signal it with a music video in the form of pull up.  The video showcases all of the key components folks need for understanding what busa flock is about : unique aesthetic, high style, banging production, quality rhymes and a sense of humor are all calling cards the crew possesses.  The connection is intriguing, and yet it makes all the sense in the world… I will definitely be keeping my eyes and ears open for more.

Direct Action :: Blastfamous USA Takes To The Streets With ‘Out Here’ Video

Blasfamous USA, in their short existence, has not been a group to shy away from issues and topics that matter.  The video for their latest single, Out Here, drives that fact home by taking place in the midst of an anti-Trump rally held in Austin.  The crew looks right at home among the throngs of demonstrators upset with the current political direction, and the lyrics of the song seem to almost directly reflect what you are seeing.  Hopefully, the dissidence settles in due time, and Blastfamous USA continues to make bold statements in their banging music.

High Alert :: Blastfamous USA Drops Debut EP

a2007425667_10

Blastfamous USA is far from the first supergroup out of the Austin music scene, but they’re by far one of the illest and most promising musical connections the scene has seen in quite a while.  NGHT HCKLRS and Zeale Rapz certainly did not need one another, as each of these particular musical projects has seen varied levels of success on their own.  This go-round, however, is proving to be fruitful for all parties involved, especially Zeale Rapz, who was always clever with the wordplay, but is showing a completely genuine edge on these tracks that (in my opinion) has only been hinted at in the past.  As with most banger EPs, I am certainly ready for what the full length project has in store… props to everyone involved in this project.
