The hustle does not seem to be easing up for Antonio Breez with the release of not just one, but TWO singles today. AB’s audience has always been spoiled. After dropping 25 music videos this year, consistency has been Antonio’s niche. The double release is certainly a surprise to his fans following Antonio’s announcement earlier this week that he would not be releasing his highly anticipated LP “The Migration Narrative 2” , but instead he would continue to release singles . Without giving fans time to mourn AB hit them with fresh new content. Two singles in one day is quite an impressive load.
“Gravy” directed by AB’s longtime sidekick is an edgy , New York City basquiat themed freestyle video. The more lyrical of the two videos, it features crazy and exciting word play that showcases Breez’ lyrical brutality with lines such as “ Broke B**** had to leave her a loan just to pay attention “ or “ weed in your hand that’s palm trees , that’s what you call paradise .”
“Beautiful” directed by AB’s new videographer Pen Pushas , is the softer of the two singles. Breez shares a story of heartbreak over a classic sample of Toni Braxton’s “ The Heat” by Kazi did it.
Gearing up for the release of his new LP, “ The Migration Narrative 2” dropping next month Antonio Breez delivers a controversial , yet powerful viral single entitled “ 2Pac , which samples the late rappers signature hit “ Hail Mary”. While in the studio with Def Squad general Erick Sermon , of the legendary EPMD, Erick played a series of instrumentals for Breez to write to and add to his upcoming project. When hearing this Hail Mary sample done by producer Kountdown, Breez instantly saw opportunity to pay homage to 2pac, as well as embrace the challenge of rapping over such an iconic 2pac record such as “ Hail Mary” , a record that hasn’t been appropriated yet.
Breez, age 23 describes himself as a lyrical artist. With a large social media following, and a reputation for putting brutal 16s over classic Hip-Hop instrumentals, Breez says this was another effort to showcase his respect for the golden era of hip-hop and how he believes he is a product of the emcees that came before him; Contrary to the trending rap artist of today who typically dishonor the legacy of golden era rappers. Breez hopes this 2018 rendition of the 2pac masterpiece will be enjoyed, and bridge today’s hip hop audience and golden era fans together.
