THE BROWN LEBOWSKI - THEEZ
Updated: Feb 16
The wait is over, Theez, with the help of producers like Tsands, Jrolz, Fatfinger and more has finally released his full length debut album.
I think it’s a high octane, big momentum well-rounded introduction to this veteran mic killer.
Not only does he hit different topic matter with songs like “Gift from God”, “Beady Eyes” and “Biggie in the Early 90s” but he also hits different genres of rap with pieces like “Champ” featuring Notiz Yong, “Wrong One” with Swilly and “Out 4 Profit” as he plays effortlessly with different styles and voice technique.
In my opinion, great artists have balance and Theez has tons: he spits barsy enough for nerds like me while also totally checking off all the boxes of aggressiveness, ridiculously entertaining bars about guns, bitches, hustle and blunt sessions that my idea of more normal rap fans are looking for in music to bump.
The two stoner anthems “By the dozen” and “Beady Eyes” are wonderful and standout . “Beady Eyes” of the two is my favorite, probably of the whole album – guest Kap Kallous is as clever as Theez’ verse is catchy .
The skits, in which our protagonist’s loved ones leave insulting messages about their experience listening to their advance copy of the album, make me feel like I have the permission to say the following: I’ve often thought Theez solo records would be like if Eminem never fell off- zany, gangsta-rap influenced humorous fun celebrations of hip-hop. Maybe somewhere between that and Lil Dicky but either way, it’s entertaining and unpretentious while also being brilliant. Bump this a lot.
