The Break Presents: Shady Blaze

As a Main Attrakionz associate, Shady Blaze turned heads in the rap world with his impressive joint mixtape with Deniro Farrar called Killed Or Be Killed. Now, the Oakland native is confident that his fast-rap style will elevate him among the greats.

And: “Blaze Up”

Name: Ravalle Quinn a.k.a. Shady Blaze

Age: 25

Hometown: Oakland, CA

I grew up listening to: Michael Jackson, Nas, Spice-1, Hot Boys, Big Tymers, Yukmouth, Eminem, Tupac, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Dr Dre and Timbaland.

Most people don’t know I: Grew up up playing the piano, trumpet, and trombone back in school.

My style’s been compared to: Bone Thugs-N-Harmony and Twista mostly. Tech N9ne sometimes only because of the fast rap. When being compared, that’s all I see.

My standout records and/or moments to date have been: The Shady Bambino Project with Squadda B, Rappers Ain’t $#!% Without A Producer, The Grind, Hustle & Talent, and Kill Or Be Killed with Deniro Farrar. To me, those are my standout projects/mixtapes. A stand out moment would have to be the cypher I was apart of. My very first one is here.

My goal in Hip-Hop is: To just simply make a name for myself and spread everywhere. Keep building.

I’m gonna be the next: Big thing comin’ straight outta Oakland CA!
