Smoke DZA and Harry Fraud Drop ‘He Has Risen’ EP
Smoke DZA and Harry Fraud team up for He Has Risen, the follow up to 2012's Rugby Thompson. The nine-track effort only features Snoop Dogg on "Morals" as DZA handles the heavy lifting on the mic.
DZA showed what he has in store on the EP as he took part in the "Five Fingers of Death" on Sway in the Morning. Unprepared, DZA mans up and more than holds his own over the five beats provided by DJ Wonder. Before the free, the Harlem native gives his thoughts on the Troy Ave vs. Capital Steez beef and more. Peep the video below.
As he continues the rollout for the project, DZA has been sharing pics on his Instagram and posted a still shot from the music video for “100K” that features former WWE professional wrestler Virgil. Smoke is a huge wrestling fan and has dropped installments of his wrestling-themed Ringside project to coincide with the the day of WrestleMania the past three years. The ‘Lo aficionado joined XXL‘s “Ante Up” podcast to talk Bret The Hitman Hart’s cancer diagnosis, the Royal Rumble, John Cena, Triple H and AJ Styles.
DZA and Fraud dropped the “Heard Dat” video from their upcoming project. With DZA living up to his Kushed God alias by puffing on a huge joint and fellow ‘Lo Head Retchy P making a cameo, the rapper proves that he really lives his raps.
This may be the last time we see RetcH for a while. Porter is facing 10 to 20 years in prison after being charged with entering a residence while armed, armed robbery, conspiracy to commit armed robbery, using a 17-year-old or younger to, or conspire to, enter a residence and commit an armed robbery with firearms, according to a criminal complaint obtained by NJ.com. He is being held on $150,000 bail. In Dec., RetcH was arrested in New Jersey with a "large amount of heroin--as well as cocaine and marijuana." He was held on $20,000 bail in the Bergen County (NJ) Jail.
