REVIEW: SCORZAYZEE - AEON: PIECE TO THE PUZZLE

SCORZAYZEE - AEON: PIECE TO THE PUZZLE album cover


Nottingham’s one and only outspoken rapper Scorzayzee is back with an album AEON: Piece to the Puzzle, to shake our synapses where he delivers a potent reminder about his twists and turns in life.
After shocking the nation back in 2004, his first steps in music brought controversy to Britain’s ears where hip hop began to break the shackles of censorship aka caused asthma attacks on radio play. At first he joined Out Da Ville, the collective who made history with MTV base bangers like Blood Sweat and Tears where Scorzayzee’s spat nothing but fire.
“I don't want to talk for the sake of it. I don't want to just make tunes for the sake of it, I want to do something special. All I know is that if I do anything else, it's got to be worth coming back from retirement to say it.” – Scorzayzee, 2005
SCORZAYZEE - AEON: PIECE TO THE PUZZLE

Right away, in Intium his words tongue twist and wrap up the beat only to deliver a reminder that the “microphone scientist” is here to resurrect his fans ya’ll. The other 27 tracks which complete his body of work present a convoluted, passionate yet diverse selection of songs that reveal Scorzayzee in a new light every time.
Old school, scrapes the bottom of the hip hop pot, revealing his inseparable infatuation with classic hip hop. A strong flow, cradles a nostalgic moment flicking through his school diary.  The Heart looks through a spectacle of his adolescent self  as well but is lined with religious wizardry and his inquisitive adult self, “you watch a man eat a burger and missed the stain on your own shirt” Scorzayzee’s habit of layering meaning upon meanings leaves you to take a step back and process what he’s actually trying to say.
But it’s not all serious, Scorzayzee takes the piss with Good Grammar as the deliberate illiteracy embraces being misunderstood and exudes a self-confidence of being yourself.
Within this project, Nina Smith’s vocals invite a sense of optimism alongside the politically punchy lyrics from the big mouth Nottingham rapper. The one banger is Gangsta Wrap is by far the hardest track with the heaviest beat and sickest flow, the lyrics narrate a wordplay with food, hip hop and corruption. Juga-Naut adds a rawness and it’s just the cleverest collaboration by far in this album; Scorzayzee’s creativity has no bounds.
Heroes Never Die signifies Scorzayzee’s past and present as it touches upon Scorzayzee’s classic Heroes Die. Here Scorzayzee’s curiosity revels as he revisits the steps to heaven and talks with legends like Big L and juggles with questions like  “was it Michael’s past that made him nervous about his face” as he replaces “pops” with “past”, it shows Scorzayzee’s maturity in harnessing a new meaning through his lyricism.
The last bonus track, talks about the materialistic worship of crepps, with the line “rock crepps” that has your ankle twitching. Scorzayzee finishes with a capitalistic message touching upon the exploitation of trainer companies, again a reminder of Scorzayzee’s habit of digging deeper as a mindful artist.

Warning, if you aren’t a die-hard true hip hop fan all 28 tracks will go over your head wanting to hear more, all the better to give this exceptional come back of an album a listen and experience the evolution of Scorzayzee for yourself.
