RoGizz ‘Respect the Shooter’ [Audio]
There is few of the words that can be used to describe RoGizz, the artist and musician. After turning his love for poetry into hip hop music, he signed a record deal with Dreamworks. After moving to Los Angeles and witnessing many of the label’s resources diverted to other areas, he decided to gain a release and put out his own music independently through his self-promoted company GIZZ Entertainment. His first project was called Worldwide Domination Volume I. It was a compilation disk featuring other Chicago independent artists where he utilized his skill at connecting people and providing strength in numbers.
Through a mutual friend, RoGizz met his rap partner Pask-1 and formed a group called “Worldfame”. They released a mixtape called “Cut the Games: Chi to L.A.” to much critical acclaim. Soon after, he moved back to Chicago and went on to collaborate more with some of the most talented beatmakers in the city: SC (Mobb Deep), 110% Pure (Pitbull) and Boogz N Tapez (Kayne West). His love for creating timeless music brought him to the mic with this complex project titled “The Pimp and The Preacher”. It features an assortment of soultrap sounds from ChiTown’s most sought after producer Tree (Chance The Rapper). In his own words, RoGizz stated: “This is one of my best works yet. The pimp analogy symbolizes everyday life. It is layered considering the elements that are discussed. I try to make politics a casual theme in every release I drop”. This trend continues in the fall when RoGizz delivers the greatest edition to his mixtape catalog. Titled, “Interview with a Schizo 2: Perception Is Reality” (IWAS2), the project features some of the biggest artists and producers in the Hip-Hop Game: Vinny Cha$e, DUBB, Jose Guapo, Sean Falyon, SC and The Avengerz (YMCMB).
