If you've been a reader of this site for any length of time, you already know about the extremely talented Joey Batts. With his band, Joey Batts & Them, he combines hip-hop with rock to make songs that are both lyrically deft, and a perfect soundtrack to just about any party.
A little while ago he told me about a new project he's a part of – UZOO. While checking out the video for their single "Attack," I felt a vibe similar to the one I felt the first time I listened to Boot Camp Clik, and D12.
Featuring a dark beat, and a plethora of emcees who are all about spittin, no one comes wack on "Attack," and the song continues with emcee after emcee jumping in to show their skills. This is hip-hop for hip-hop heads.
B-Listers are a select group of artists that were featured in my Artist Of The Week series that ran every Monday from April of '06 to April of '11. All of these artists have two things in common; extreme talent, and a flight path far too under the radar for my liking. They took on the title of B-Listers as they embraced being featured by me, Adam B. Check out the AOTW Archives for all the interviews.
