Los-Angeles based Asian-American rapper Blahza is set to release his first solo single ‘Bandz’ under Umami Records this August 28 (Friday), on all digital platforms worldwide.
The latest single follows his previous collaborations with Singaporean electronic producer Xinister on ‘Break’ and with Malaysian lo-fi producer OnlyM on ‘Perfect.’
On the sparse, trap-influenced track, Blahza rhymes about hustling in life, minding your own business, and keeping your cool when the chips are down. Blahza shares the story behind ‘Bandz:’ “The hook is about not worrying about what another person has. And when you don’t have it yourself don’t hate - just go out and get it for yourself.”
He also added that the first verse was written to document his humble beginnings, trying to make a fortune out of hardwork and perseverance.
Blahza was born and raised in Nuys by Chinese and Puerto Rican parents. He grew up sorrounded by music and diversity.
