Home brewed from the depths of Phila-illa-delphia and keeping it all in the family.. Brothers Shampz and Azzan emerge from the lab bunker to bring you tales from the life with their brand of rugged thuggish hard edged lyrically lyrical lick shots in rapid fire verse…MRC invites you to come follow we..
Q. MRCPROMO: Peace Azzan.. whats good and where’s home?
A. AZZAN: Everything is cool man and yea and we come from West Philly.
Q. MRCPROMO: You’re brothers right? When did you form the group? How did yall start?
A. AZZAN: Yea we are brothers and we have been recording for about 4 years now. We’re not a group or a duo but we work together on the regular. I am the producer of almost every piece of music dropped from me and Shampz imprint is Dead Wrong Records. Shampz of course, is the lead MC on our label.
Q. MRCPROMO: So Shampz is an emcee and you makes the beats right?
A. Azzan: Yea that’s how it goes. We try to focus in and bring that raw Hip Hop energy that’s been missing for years.
Q. MRCPROMO: Who comes up with most of your concepts is it a collab effort? Do the beats come first then the lyrics?
A. AZZAN: I usually lace the track first and I might have an Idea but usually we build the songs together as a unit.
Q. MRCPROMO: What projects are you working on currently?
A. AZZAN: Well, Shampz is working on a new tape titled “Long Live The King” probably droppin in the Spring. Also Im working on our artists Frio, Blak, and Caution’s projects that will be droppin next year. Also look out for our group LVM droppin soon too.
Q. MRCPROMO: Where can fans find your releases?
A. AZZAN: Well Shampz last full length project “All Hail The King” we dropped a year and a half ago that’s currently bronze on DatPiff is one that you can find, also check our Soundcloud page titled “Dead Wrong Records” we’re usually droppin music from the label on there almost every week.
Q. MRCPROMO: Any show or tours coming up?
A. AZZAN: Yea no doubt we will be touring soon. More than likely in the Spring to promote the anticipated releases from the label.
Q. MRCPROMO: Where do you see yourselves in the next few years?
A. AZZAN: Within the next five years the game is ours. Quote me. Take my word for granted.
Q. MRCPROMO: Any advice for someone new to the game?
A. AZZAN: Be original and stay true to yourself. Don’t let nobody tell you how to do your music. If you got a vision musically, stay true to it and don’t let haters and naysayers influence your decisions. That’s pretty much what I would tell them.
Q. MRCPROMO: Last words or shouts?
A. AZZAN: Shout out to Dead Wrong Records and of course the homie DJ Lord Ron for the love. Also to all our supporters who been rockin wit us, we won’t let yall down. Peace.
