It’s been too long since we updated you on Bay Area & Oakland rapper/producer Renz Julian.
Renz and DubCNN.com have history, we’ve been keeping you posted on his music since 2007!
Late last year – December 2nd, 2014 – he released the street album & documentary movie entitled “Thug Scholarship,” the follow up of the critically acclaimed “Armageddon” in 2009, and 2011’s “Alphabet Hustle” street album with the Demolition Men.
The album features club banger’s such as “Playin’ House” with Mistah FAB as well as introspective lyrical joints such as the title track “Thug Scholarship”. The album was released on Field of Dreamz Ent. and distributed by indie powerhouse Empire Distribution.
The documentary takes you on a journey around the Bay Area streets, telling the story of urban economic struggle, and the affects of growing up during crack epidemic of the 1980’s. Thug Scholarship is a minority scholarship fund for inner city youth started by Julian and a subsidiary of his record company Field of Dreamz Ent. Music videos, interviews, in studio, and behind the scenes footage is included. The film also includes appearances by E-40, The Jacka, Mistah FAB, J. Stalin, Big Drawz of 211, Field of Dreamz Ent. artists, & more.
