Smoke DZA “Black Independence” f/ J. Ivy
Here’s a combo I didn’t necessarily expect — and a real nice one now that I hear it: Smoke DZA with J. Ivy. The rising rapper tabs the Chicago spoken word poet for a fitting intro and verse for the empowering “Black Independence”. Adding to the positive vibes is the jazzy horns that are dominant on the production. And Smoke DZA himself puts down some of the nicer rhymes I’ve heard from him. All in all, a great choice as a first single for his upcoming album, Dream.ZONE.Achieve, slated for April 1st. Produced by 183rd.
