The Mixtape:

Today, New London, Connecticut, repper, and recent Man Bites Dog Records signee, Hayze, is excited to release his new mixtape, The Smoker's Section. This new tape, presented in conjunction with Man Bites Dog Records and 2DopeBoyz, is the culmination of months of work and the project features Freck Billionaire and Alumni, in addition to Hayze's mentor and fellow Connecticut native Apathy.

Hayze first linked with Apathy by chance, when the rap veteran walked in on a recording session of Hayze's at Smoke The World studios. "He sounded mad different than anything I was hearing at the time," recalls Apathy of the meeting. "Most fans would probably expect me to champion someone who has a similar sound as Demigodz or Army Of The Pharaohs, but that's exactly the opposite of what I hear from him, and it's what I dug about his music."

When Hayze was subsequently first introduced with the video for The Smoker's Section's lead single "Creepmode," which Apathy produced, listeners were given a quick taste of the youth, lyricism, and distinctive vocal tone that first caught Apathy's ear. That video was followed by the Apathy-featuring "Life Is Hell," which also later received video treatment, and most recently, in lead-up to today's release, Hayze has dropped off a final pair of singles – "Eyes Low" is a weeded, lyrical display that features Freck Billionaire, while "Cloud 9," which features Alumni, offers a more introspective look at Hayze.

Other tracks, like "The Smoker's Section Interlude," also stand out – and help Hayze stand apart as a multi-faceted force to be reckoned with. "That track, through and through, is Hayze," says the rapper. "I got to showcase my singing abilities, and the verse on that track is so real – I get chills when I listen to it."

All told, The Smoker's Section is a project that shows the 22-year-old rapper continuing to grow as a person and as an artist, noting that it was the recent passing of his grandmother that encouraged him to put his all into his music. "With The Smoker's Section," explains Hayze, "I focused on this like it was the last thing I'd do, I took it that serious. There's a lot of soul in this music."
