RAIZA BIZA ‘Get By feat. BIANCA PAULUS’
Between 2012 -2104 Raiza Biza released 4 artist albums and recorded a bunch of guest features, which was followed by a relatively quiet period for the Hamilton-based MC with no new releases and only the occasional guest appearance. That’s all about to change with the forthcoming EP, the first new material since ‘The Imperfectionist” LP in 2014.
Last week saw the release of ‘Get By’, and from the get go this sounds like classic Raiza Biza material, with longtime collaborator Crime Heat setting the scene with a beat built around a simple jazz piano lick. Raiza drops into the first verse with assured confidence: the sound of an artist who has absolute faith in their abilities as an MC and has something they want to say, before stepping back to give allow Bianca Paulus (Weird Together) to shine on the emotive chorus and hook. This is quality local hiphop and a welcome return for Riaza.
