Former member of the group B2K, Raz B took a break from the good ole U.S. of A. and hit the streets of China, stayed seven years and now he is BACK! He returned to the States with club banger titled “Get it Low.” Reclaiming his music career by collaborating with them “East Side Boyz”. Now how did that happen? We were able to catch up with Raz B and Big Sam who said the following:
It’s crazy because Big AL said Raz B is looking for a new sound and I remember I had this song I was working on in my head. So we were at the studio and Adam played this beat and I said I got it. Then I went in and laid the hook and all the Crunk tracks and the bridge. Then we sent it to Raz and he just loved it. He sent a rough back and I was like whoa this can be big. So I it was a empty spot and so I put a verse on there.
Raz B: I used to see Lil Jon in China all the time in China but I never thought I would get the opportunity to work with the East Side Boyz. But they definitely made it happen. I’m excited about the song period.
The crunk music choice: were you focusing on changing your target audience?
Raz B: You know, I’m so focused on what me and my team is doing, I’m not really worried about what the rest of the world is doing. We were just trying to bring something fresh and new to the culture. We trying to win, man. I mean we are winning.
(question for Big Sam) How important is it to keep the Crunk music pumping in 2018?
I don’t think it’s problem with keeping Crunk pumping for here until. It’s apart of to many commercials.
(question for Big Sam) Why do you think Crunk is so relevant to the culture today?
“I want to make a difference and continue to make a difference as long as I am above ground. I don’t want to exist as wasted space. I want to continue to push the team forward and change the culture. I wake up with a responsibility to know that I’m here and I am breathing, so my job is just to serve the King. The enemy constantly wants to pull you back so I have to stay consistent in what I am trying to do. I need to just play my part in this big ole world and keep pushing the human race forward.”
As far as what happened before I went to China let’s just say “Love Covers A Multitude of Sins and love is the answer.”
There you have it. Check out Get it Low and stay tuned for more info on an upcoming Crunk Tour.
