Electronic music & Louisiana rappers

A life in the day
Jody Breeze - A day in the life
Around the mid 00’s, Jody Breeze used to be the co-leading member of Boyz ‘N’ Da Hood with Young Jeezy. He was a fairly talented rapper that easily held his own next to Jeezy back then, but never became the star that Jeezy is now. I’m not sure why. Maybe because he couldn’t find a really distinctive voice to put himself apart from a guy like T.I., while Jeezy immediately found his way on his first LP. Maybe because of shady business situations : His first album planned to be released in 2005, never came out. Here it is. It’s mostly produced by Jazze Pha, with two cuts by Mannie Fresh & one by Lil Jon and features from Jeezy Eightball, Trick Daddy, Slim Thug, Pastor Troy, Sean P,… Don’t expect any TM 101, but it’s a pretty cool album that deserved to be released.

Florida rap

has always been kinda underrated. Here are two collaborations between an old & a less old rapper :

IceBerg - Player Party (Feat. JT Money & Young Trizo) : Miami’s leading local rap figure gets a feat from the city’s first great rapper. The beat is cardo-ish, the hook could’ve been better.

Uncle Head - We Outchea ft. Mista Kingz : Young Tallahassee rapper/producer Mista Kingz meets original member of Splack Pack Uncle Head for this club banger.
