THURZ - Molotov Cocktail

DJBooth_logo2x
  • Artist: Thurz
  • Track: Molotov Cocktail
  • Producer: Aaron Harris
  • Album: L.A. Riot

The word “riot” typically evokes images of angry mobs storming through the streets but, according to the Dictionary.com definition (“a noisy, violent public disorder caused by a group or crowd of persons, as by a crowd protesting against another group, a government policy, etc...”), a particularly raucous musical performance can fit the bill—all that's needed is something to riot against. On the latest single off his forthcoming mixtape, West Coast emcee THURZ invites listeners to join him in slinging a Molotov Cocktail or two at the forces that curtail freedom of thought in the hip-hop game. Producer Aaron Harris provides a fitting backdrop for a musical revolution, mixing fuzzed-out guitar and old-school cuts as the emcee compares his fight for artistic liberation with the infamous campaigns of various literal arsonists (“John Orr, Paul Keller, Raymond Lee in the physical..."). Does this bracing cut leave you amped and ready to wreak some havoc? L.A. Riot doesn't drop till August 9, but in the meantime you can peep this cut's official video on DJBoothTV. In addition, fans will be able to catch Thurz rocking the DJBooth.net Stage at the Atlanta Indie Fest on July 30.
