I would like to start by thanking the Journal Inquirer and Harlan Levy for writing this amazing article about "The Conn-viction Tapes"! I think it truly represents the way I feel about this project and the process. I am really looking forward to the next couple of months and releasing "The Conn-viction Tapes". I truly cannot thank those supporting enough.
Shout out to all the artists on the project: Oscar Black, High Priest, Theo Manchyld, Rassko Lean, Soldier Picasso, Arkatex, General P, Splat860, Deedz, Chosen, Millionz, Williano, and Big Mach

Would like to shout out L A W for reaching out to me and continuing to show support. He asked me to check out his latest video and because using the blog to promote CT artists is what I do, and the video and track is dope, especially from a lyrical stand point, I have posted it below. In his own words..
..."From Big Daddy Kane's R.A.W., to Kendrick's Control verse every MC has a track on their album that's an ode to lyricism but also demolishes the competition. That's what The Difference is to the Law Library album. That straight spitting, non conceptual, bar for bar onslaught that Law is known for."
Here is a 17 year old artist from CT that is outshining a lot of artists much older them himself. With a new school but still original sound, this project is well put together with strong production and a cohesive dope feel to the tracks. Daz Merchant has a promising road ahead of him if he keeps this type of professionalism and consistency to his music.
Daz will be performing LIVE at the Youth Takeover concert in Hartford, CT on January 17th. The location can only be disclosed when you RSVP at his website http://www.dazmerchant.com/RSVP/.
For a kid 17 years old, he has a complete project, performances lined up, a complete website and the infrastructure needed to succeed. I often say music is subjective but someones grind is not. There is a right way to do things and this is an artist on the right path.
