Artist: Ricky Blaze
Track: Kill Em
Feat. Jim Jones
Producer: Ricky Blaze
Album: The Maestro

I always liken being a producer to the offensive line of a football team. For both, you are often doing the dirty work, but rarely does the spotlight shine the brightest, which is almost always on the emcee/singer (the quarterback). Atlantic Records artist Ricky Blaze, who has produced cuts for Wiz Khalifa, Sean Kingston, and Santigold (whose Blaze-produced jam was featured in a Honda commercial), takes a break from manning the boards for others (although he did produce this track) to provide us with his latest effort, Kill Em.  On the single, which features a swift, raspy 16 from Harlem veteran Jim Jones, Blaze displays his production prowess (blending a house-style beat with club-friendly undertones, included a clapping effect), as well as his skills on the mic with a high-pitched, catchy vocal performance. Gangnam Style this is not, but the song surely will lead to the hook being played on repeat in the back of your mind. For more of Blaze’s unique stylings, be on the look out for his forthcoming free project, The Maestro.
