Diaz is back with a new joint featuring his main production partner and Co-owner of MOVE Records, Phizzix. While most rappers boast about their luxurious cars, Diaz and Phizzix flip it on this track and spit about the infamous 90’s ride, the Chevy Cavalier Z24. Although the content might be on the humourous side, they maintain a serious attitude in their rhymes and production. Phizzix provides a rugged boombap soundscape that’s a nice match to the subject matter of the song.
Directed by FedUp Films, “Breathe In” is Diaz’s latest video.
“Diaz, back with his long time production partner, Phizzix, brings you a laid back vibe with his new cut “Breathe In”. Along with some relaxing visuals brought to you by Mark Tytler at FedUp Films, this is one “joint” you won’t want pass on.”
After their well–received collabo “Cloud 9”, Diaz and Caliph come together again on “Different Day” with Phizzix providing a sound reminiscent of the golden era of hip hop. Both emcees express their thoughts on what an-up-and coming artist encounters on the road to success. The captivating visuals and direction by Mark Tytler of Fed Up Films, show the viewer the daily hustle of juggling a 9 to 5 while trying to turn artistry into a profession.
Alongside his latest battle, Diaz brings you his freshly cut “What U In It For?” featuring critically acclaimed Toronto Hip-Hop veteran THEO 3. The intricate rhymes and introspective subject matter challenge the listeners to ask themselves why each of us do what we do. The thought-provoking verses along with the tailor-made production from Phizzix make this track one that you won’t want to skip over.”
“MOVE’s excited to announce that Diaz’s ‘Full Canvas Collection’ is now finished and available for free download. While he works to finish his full length LP, here is a collection of tracks that didn’t quite make the cut. Included are some original joints with production from Fresh Kils, Phizzix, and Millz and some of this era’s dopest industry beats”
