RZA and Interpol’s Paul Banks team up for Collaboration as BANKS and STEELZ


“For love sometimes we find ourselves at war and the combatants may do anything to win,” RZA says of the song. “For me love is worth fighting for, as long as love is not lost.”

The Wu Producer/MC and Interpol frontman first began working on music together in 2013. RZA told Rolling Stone at the time that the idea to collaborate with Banks sparked after RZA’s manager asked him who he wanted to do an album with. “When I met Paul, I recognized the New York energy he has as a music artist. We got to know each other playing chess and vibing out in the studio. Our talents connected in a unique way and we started writing songs. The outcome was something distinctively different from my previous work, yet with another layer of cool.” – Rza

“Love and War” is the first song to be released from Banks and Steelz’s upcoming album, which Warner Bros. Records will release later this year. They are confirmed to perform at FYF Fest 2016 in Los Angeles at the end of August and at the Life is Beautiful in Las Vegas and the Austin City Limits Music Festival in Austin in the fall. Tour dates below.

They released the first single “Love and War” feat. Ghostface Killah via Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show on Apple Music. Banks and Steelz have now followed that up by releasing the video for “Love and War” directed by Arms Race. The video is inspired by Reservoir Dogs. Check the video and drop a comment.

“Three years ago on Oct. 1, 2012 I had emergency open heart surgery because of a serious condition called “Aortic Dissection” in which the inner layer of the aorta, the large blood vessel branching off the heart, tears. Blood surges through the tear, causing the inner and middle layers of the aorta to separate (dissect). If the blood-filled channel ruptures through the outside aortic wall, aortic dissection is often fatal. Three weeks after that, I needed another emergency surgery. That time I had abdominal surgery because of an ulcer.
A little over a year ago, Sept. 13, 2014, I suffered a mild stroke that took my speech and I could not write or read. As a result, I now have a motor speech disorder called “Apraxia” of speech in adults, as well as “Aphasia”. With help from speech therapy and studying, I have been able to regain my speech and also read and write again.” – Ghetto Flame

Azad Right – “Enough of You” (Audio)


Hip-hop heavy-hitter Azad Right has recently released a brand new track tiled “Enough of You”. Azad has been busy of late, partly due to his new position as VP at record label Mind of a Genius (ZHU, Gallant, THEY). Azad has subsequently been featured in the LA Weekly People of 2016.

“Enough of You” sees Azad illustrate a detailed description of the realities of a failed relationship, with surgical wordplay. The intoxicating composition also features Azad Right singing on the hook. This creative wrinkle is a first for Azad; and he delivers flawlessly.

I’m still working on my own music but I’m really taking my time completing the next project.
