C-Rayz Walz is a unique rap entity. This hard working MC is always on the grind and he has made some major accomplishments in just a short time in his career: building a body count of popular MCs in battles, he had a video in rotation on BET, he’s released 20 singles independently and he cracked the Billboard Top 100 Hip Hop Chart with “Ravipops” at #61. A true character with some of the most memorable lyrics around, C-Rayz Walz became a familiar face on the New York hip hop scene. C-Rayz was banned from the Blaze magazine battles a few years ago because he defeated everyone he ever went up against. He was recently handpicked by the Wu-Tang Clan’s Raekwon to open for Raekwon on tour. C-Rayz has released two previous albums, Limelight, featuring Academy Award winner Adrian Brody, and The Prelude, which featured some production by Ghostface. While working on his grind and releasing his own singles, he also signed to the Def Jux label and made underground hip hop history by appearing on the MTV series “I Wanna Be Made” as a rap coach.
His new album, 1975 Return of the Beast is executive produced by two indie hop hop powerhouses, Howie McDuffie and Ill Bill for Draft Records. C-Rayz is still constantly hustling, performing spot dates around the country. His new album features some of his new and old friends, M-1 of Dead Prez, Aesop Rock, Cannibal Ox, El-P and Jean Grae. With a stellar lineup and some unexpected surprises, C-Rayz Walz latest album is a musical gem that will light up the independent rap music landscape.
