OBESE DISTRIBUTION : JAKE BIZ- COMMERCIAL HELL, OUT NOW (New promo clip and iTunes purchase link now available)
Jake Biz Commercial Hell
Available: 18.05.2012 Released By: Karsniogenics Distributed By: Obese Records
It's been many years in the brewing, now finally Brisbane underground hip hop legend Jake Biz's debut album Commercial Hell
is ready for the tasting. Riding off the back of his highly successful debut single, 'Deuce Deuce', Commercial Hell is set for
national release on Karsniogenics through Obese Records Distribution on May 18, 2012.
Commercial Hell was produced by Jake Biz's long time friend and fellow 750 Rebel Overproof Pete aka
Brookes Cullings and features valuable contributions by crew members and old mates including the legendary Lazy
Grey, DJ Lopsided, Bigfoot, Tornts, Ken Oath and Fluent
Commercial Hell is a self-�‐assured rap album without pretense, born out of a love and knowledge of the rap classics of years gone by and
the south side working class suburbs of Brisbane. It is the antithesis of every record attempting to cross into the mainstream and whilst it may
appear quite a confrontational album upon first listen, it plays out as more a tongue (firmly planted) in cheek observation of Australia�s hip hop
scene in its current state.
"The title track itself addresses the 'Australian Idol' mentality of many local rappers who search for fame and acclaim without investing time and
genuine passion into their craft." explains Jake Biz. It also blatantly hints at the role commercial radio has been playing
in pushing these stereotypical 'paint by numbers' MC's while completely ignoring far more deserving veteran underground artists." The production
techniques of Overproof Pete seamlessly blend with the Biz's vocal style in a combination born of many years shared
"Having known Peter for so long, growing up together and entering the rap game together, no one else could have provided and crafted the sonic
landscape for my raps." says Biz. "Having Proof produce the entire record was a no brainer. We both share similar views on
life and the same general goal and vision for street level rap music coming out of this country."Jake Biz is rightfully proud
of his debut long player and the blood, sweat and biff that have gone into molding every aspect of the final work. "Weeks of deliberation went
into the eventual track listing while three and half years were spent in the studio attempting to hone both sound and substance."Biz concludes.
"This is an ALBUM not a collection of tracks. We've attempted to craft something classic in the tradition of those albums that came before it and
those albums that'll be considered timeless ten years from now."
