Pennsylvania – February 2020 – Blacc Cuzz wields his authenticity like a sledgehammer. He’s lived the life that many rappers claim to and has the scars to prove it. He’s lost brothers to the life, and has two bullets in his lung that speak to that, all of which is mentioned in the track. He references this more as a footnote than braggadocio, he’s too busy looking forward instead of spending that much time reflecting on the past.
It begins in classic rap fashion with a recorded voicemail message that details Blacc Cuzz’ passion, skill, and individuality. It’s a call to arms which is quite obviously picked up as soon as the beat drops. This is trap with a backbone looking to wrestle weaker offerings to the floor and beat them senseless.
‘Intro’ is not just a single, it’s a statement of intent. Blacc Cuzz is an artist who has been gaining reputation with each release from his latest album ‘Stretch It’, but with ‘Intro’ he’s putting the entire industry on check.
In just a few minutes ‘Intro’ manages to introduce a new voice to the scene and it’s clearly one that is looking to sidestep the cliché and already tired tropes of the genre. It’s got something fresh at its heart and that shines through in the rhyme schemes and melody. It also has honesty at its core that is tragically lacking in far too many artists.
They say should always leave them wanting more and that’s exactly what ‘Intro’ does. It’s a taste of what the album ‘Stretch It’ serves up in stacks. It tells you exactly who Blacc Cuzz is and what he’s about, and it doesn’t pull its punches. It’s about knowing yourself, what you can do, and looking out for number one. In just one verse it buries the majority of rappers that came before and sets up the legacy of the next big move in the genre.
