Izza Kizza - Millionaire
Last week’s release of Madden NFL ‘09 marked the 20th anniversary of the video game. Additionally, it marked the first time that millions of players came into contact with DJBooth favorites such as Kardinal Offishall, Kidz in the Hall, and Wale, all of whom made the game’s soundtrack. Also featured by the good people at EA Sports is Timbaland/Soul Diggaz protégé (and DJBooth member) Izza Kizza, whose amped-up anthem Millionaire was a no-brainer inclusion. Thanks to his creative delivery and far-out wordplay, Kizza finds himself in a league of his own. Producer Koolade deserves a pat on the back as well for his startling, percussion-heavy beat. For non-video gamers who enjoy Millionaire, it is also available on the rappers’s new Kizzaland mixtape (available for free download) and will be featured on his major debut, Mr. Next Year EP, released this fall.
