An up-and-coming rhymesayer hailing from Seattle, Washington, Raz Simone makes his grand entrance into The DJBooth with the lead single off his forthcoming debut studio album. Cold finds the artist coming together with beatsmith Nima Skeemz to craft a lightly jazzy instrumental backdrop for bars outlining his personal philosophy on romance, socioeconomic injustice and the paper chase. Director Jon Holman rounds out the package with a candid official video. Raz’ freshman full-length, Solomon Samuel Simone, is currently unscheduled, but the artist plans to announce a solid arrival date in the coming weeks. In conjunction with its release, he will also drop Cognitive Dissonance, an EP-length companion piece showcasing the darker side of his artistic vision.
