Los Angeles veteran emcee Pawz One connects with Turkish producer Farazi for this hard-hitting verbal onslaught titled “Knuckle Duster.” The aptly titled track is pure gold as it pairs Farazi’s cinematic soundscape against Pawz One’s time tested lyrical prowess in a seamless manner. The result is pure lyrical bliss for lovers of true lyricism and crunchy boombap beats. Also joining them on the record is Savai who provides them with excellent vocal scratches.
Pawz One has been repping the real and releasing music for the past decade. Most recently he teamed up with 90’s West Coast vet Mykill Miers for the aptly named Double Homicide LP (also on Below System Records) and has also appeared on tracks with such notables as Ruste Juxx, Sadat X, Percee P, Shabaam Sahdeeq, and DJ Rhettmatic. Hailing from Istanbul, Turkey Farazi has been professionally producing for close to fifteen years. In his homeland, he is well known for his work with such home-based talent as Kayra and 90BPM. Catching the ear of Below System, he was tapped to work with western talents on the label including Chuuwee, Trizz, and Pearl Gates.
