The new debut Album All Things Considered from Columbus, Ohio’s lyrical phenom B. Haz couldn’t come at a better time. As a new generation embarks in Hip Hop and in music in general, pioneering Artist’s are needed more than ever. Instead of following the same path, being in the same mold, using the same verbiage B. Haz put emphasis on respecting the craft. He has built a reputation for his wide variety of original music, sometimes gritty and translucent, sometimes smooth and intense- but always lyrical. B. Haz constantly incorporates other styles of music ranging from the 60’s to current into his cooking pot adding to the different strains his styles can generate.
His songs on the new album are driven by his intelligent lyrical rhyme patterns and content. He utilizes raw abstract beats that are reminiscent of 90’s Hip Hop with melodic instrumentation that is influenced by bass, piano, and other organic elements. As heard via the first single “You Know What You Want,” B. Haz paints a poignant picture of the same old story- Temptation. The Temptress acts like a dude, spends like a dude, drinks like a dude- but is 100% female. His verbal approach and snake charmer sample illustrates how you shouldn’t judge a book by the cover and be careful for what you wish for.
As a concept Album, All Things Considered rotates between hard-hitting songs that touch on modern issues like televised propaganda and media brainwashing/fake news (“Mask,” “Lookin 4 da Lines”) and more personal narratives speaking to life and love in the digital age (“It’s Yours,” “Knowing”). And while these larger stories are skillfully crafted in math, science, and physics- this is really an Album of epiphanies. LoRee’s voice speaking to the inner sanctity of family and friends in “Circles,” as an homage paid to Hip Hop with the chorus in “Slow Down,” B. Haz with his crew (Aviator Gang) coupled with the synthesizer that has a funked out Ambulance siren feel on “Grind Heavy,” the hook MIC SMIFF brings on “Married 2 This Life,” the depth of the bass accompanied with some dark alley drums behind the jingly piano and B. Haz lyrically summing up the whole Album “Rugbee…” All of these moments point to an artist wise beyond his years. Be prepared for raw abstract beats and intelligent lyrical rhymes with a sharp edge.
