PREMIERE: The Faze Is “The Black Slim Shady”

Moreno Valley, California rapper The Faze pissed off a lot of Wu-Tang fans with the release of Liquid Swords (A Cover Album). It didn’t help that he gave an interview admitting he didn’t really know GZA’s music all that well before embarking on this ambitious endeavor.

But if you give the project an honest listen, you’ll have to admit that the kid did his thing.

Today MASS APPEAL recklessly premieres a new music video for the second track off said project, which promises to piss off a whole new set of stans—plus all sorts of racially sensitive types. “The Black Slim Shady” finds The Faze spitting Eminem-esque bars over the beat from “Duel of the Iron Mic” off the O.G. Liquid Swords, which featured Masta Killa, Dreddy Kruger, Inspectah Deck and Ol’ Dirty Bastard.

“The Black Slim Shady is 100% the Slim Shady character just from my perspective,” The Faze explains. “It’s probably the track I had the most fun making while creating the Liquid Swords project. With Eminem being my biggest influence I wanted to capture what the Slim Shady character would have to say in 2017, even though we love this character for being funny and controversial, there was a social message in the art as well that was always overlooked due to the color of the content. So that’s where the ISIS reference stems from, as well as the skit in the middle of the song where me and the homie Rome shoot up a Trump rally.

The padded room if you don’t know where to find me
For beating rap moguls to death that wouldn’t sign me
It’s like momma gave birth and I was born Siamese
You name any murder I’m connected to the body 

“That was me taking shots at these executives in the industry because even though there are a few signed artist who touch on social issues, there’s more of the “party & bullshit” type of rap being demanded by labels. But I get it, it’s a business and they’re going after the quick buck.

“I speak for all Eminem fans when I say the Slim Shady character is missed in this new era of rap. This record was made out of pure nostalgia and even though Slim Shady and Faze both represent being rebels, Slim Shady says things that Faze wouldn’t normally say, so this song will definitely prompt more sequels whenever I feel the need to speak about certain issues.

“Making the video was fun as well. I think Sarkis who directed it did a great job visually at capturing the lyrics and concept of the record, which was easy for him because he’s a huge Eminem fan as well. Before starting 3rd Republic that was our vision, to become a part of the Shady Records umbrella.

“Overall, like Slim Shady I’m just poking fun at all the crazy events that go on in today’s society. None of it is to be taken literally. Except the line about moving in with Rihanna. So Rihanna if you’re reading this, it’s not too late!”
