Kyza & TF Update

Post categories:

Mistajam | 23:40 UK time, Thursday, 30 November 2006 there has been texts, there have been emails, there has been phonecalls....and there has been no reply! Them TF lot (whether current or past members) were never very good at answering their phones!! I can only guess that the HHC blog was 100% official and that they have special HHC only phone numbers for the firma.

It's a shame in this instance as Kyza and Klash really complimented each other both on record and on stage but it happens. Groups grow in different ways artistically which can lead to one or more members leaving. It happened to NWA. It happened to Gang Starr. It happened to Slum Village. It happened to Leaders of the New School. It usually means we, as the consumer, get more music from all of the solo artists.

'The Experience' shows great potential for Kyza as a solo artist (really, it was just some of the production on that which let him down) and having heard the 'Tussle With The Beast' album, Klash as an artist is growing and has got an album that should justify the plaudits he gets. If 'The Foundation' is 'Straight Outta Compton', lets hope we get some 'The Predator' and 'The Chronic' quality releases.

In fact, in honour of Kyza leaving TF, next week on the HipHop M1X Show I'll be doing an hour long mix called 'Going Solo' and need your input. Who are your favourite now defunct hip-hop groups? What solo material is worthy of extra airplay?
