On November 13th Hempstead, NY‘s CuzOH! Black will release his debut EP, “Everybody’s Favorite Cousin”, via WeGoinin.com. Full of heartfelt lyricism inspired by real life events CuzOH will make you feel like you knew him for many years; hence the title. Featured guests include his cousin Wordsmith and Double Up Entertainment’s Paul Rivers Baily, while the production is handled by JS Aka The Best, Benny Rome, Capish, Street Level & Moe Productions.
Whether it’s “No Winter Coat”, “A Graphic Ending or “Marvelous Motivation“, CuzOH! Black shows some good range as an artist and does a great job taking the listener on a journey through reality/fantasy at times. We have to thank CuzOH! for making a project that will suit the needs of hardcore HipHop fans and commercial fans alike; something he has been chipping away at for the past few years.
Hardly new to the scene, CuzOH! Black originally went by the name “Black Knight” and is the only other artist signed to Wordsmith’s independent label NU Revolution Entertainment LLC. His track record spans 6 years appearing on all of Wordsmith’s Mixtapes along with his solo albums and collabo project with HipHop legend Chubb Rock called ”Bridging the Gap.” Needless to say, he is prepared to reach another level musically and rep is hometown of New York.
Raised in Hempstead, CuzOH! Black already has an uphill battle as a rapper in the increasingly flooded mecca of HipHop saying, “with all the MC‘s in NY it was important for me to stand out.” “I felt like it was important for me to tell a different story though I come from the same struggle as my neighbors.” he continues
“I needed to create a sound that represented the vast experiences I collected over the years.” says CuzOH!
CuzOH! Black’s goal of becoming your “favorite cousin” will soon be realized, when he becomes a household name or you invite him to live in your guest room to record his next project!
Everybody’s Favorite Cousin will be available November 13th, 2012
