Qwazaar - Stoned GiantLP | Beverly Phono MartNew/Sealed Longtime stalwarts of the indie hip hop scene, Qwazaar (of Typical Cats) & Batsauce (The Smile Rays) have once again emerged with a project that is sure to cause an avalanche - Stoned Giant. Qwazaar's unorthodox approach as a lyricist finds the quintessential canvases in Batsauce's moodier, dustier brand of Boom Bap beats. The duo is flanked by Qwazaar's partners in rhyme, Hellsent (Chicago), as well as Typical Cats bandmates Qwel & Denizen Kane who form like Voltron for a triumphant reunion track. Not to mention, the album boasts guest verses from the impossibly funky, Willie Evans Jr. (Asamov) and Dillon (FULL PLATE) who is also performs turntablist duties throughout the release. At it's core, Stoned Giant is an eccentric exploration into the inner-workings of mankind's potential greatness, with convenient reminders along the way that the bigger we are, the harder we fall. Life gets rocky sometimes, so just drop the needle and let the dust settle.
