Kray‹Z›Kree - REZalationzzz...

As Kray‹Z›Kree (KZK), an indigenous hip hop artist, Dallas released 'REZalationzzz...'. This CD also won Best Producer/Engineer at the 2007 Aboriginal People's Choice Music Awards. Scroll down for sound clips and links for purchase.

Artists on the CD include: KZK, Jared Sowan, Peter D'Amico, J-Lon, Aaron Pelly, Lawrence Paul, Kelly Noskiye, Freddy J. Martin, Chelsey Young, Seth Drabinsky, Kristen McArthur, E-Loc, Brotha Crane, Simply B, Curt Young, Brothahood of tha Grimm, E. Starlight, J. Crane, B. Starlight, Cal "Krazy Legz" Arcand, Walter MacDonald White Bear.

'REZalationzzz..' was released in 2007. One of the songs 'Pow-Wow Trailz' was featured on the Snag Records' compilation, "Rhymes From The 49 Vol. #1".

Another tune, "The Message," comes out of Dallas' personal experience walking the streets of Edmonton as a teenager. "I grew up in the rough parts of Edmonton. I saw Aboriginal people on the streets. They were always stereotyped as being drunks, 'stealing Indians', 'bad Indians', 'wagon burners' ... in my life, there was a lack of role models, so I wrote this song called The Message. It's a message to all those people who are lost."

This is INDIGENOUS HIP-HOP, like the REAL hip-hop from back in the day when it was genuine, and MCs truly spoke to the people for a greater cause. I, KZK, am an Aboriginal Person and my music is strongly influenced by my culture and the experiences that I've lived as an Aboriginal person. If Rockers can rock their stuff, the rhythm and the blues can co-exist, and cowboys can cry and sing about their lifestyle; then it’s all good for me to be a Kray‹Z›Kree - MuthaLovin' Cree and sing about my Aboriginality.

Hi-Hi (thank you). Peace, Love, Bannok N Grease!
