Salute Magazine: TiZ Offers First Single Before EP
Rapper TiZ came out swinging with his single “How it Goes” featuring M. Rose. The song has only been out for about a month, but it has steadily gained traction ever since it’s release. TiZ, a North Carolina native, has managed to build a strong following in Charlotte and New York City; which is extremely impressive since most MCs have a hard time getting buzz in their hometowns. He has gained recognition from AllHipHop.com and MTVU, his songs have gotten play on prominent radio stations, and he was the opener for Mac Miller’s tour. Can’t be mad at a kid that’s out here grinding and making things happen for himself.
“How It Goes” is supposed to be an imperfect love story that addresses the uncertainty of relationships and the places they take people. Right from the beginning, TiZ makes a smart choice in the way that he positions the intro of the song. Instead of a long-drawn-out introduction with sounds and vocals, the song starts off with ten seconds of music and then jumps straight into the bars.
Usually, a big reveal before the main course is applauded, because it prepares the listener for the artist’s journey. TiZ demonstrated that nothing was missed by cutting the intro short and all the action was in the verses. His style of cutting to the chase is greatly appreciated.
TiZ is an excellent rapper and it is quite clear that he is very careful about his word choices. Maybe he is getting more credit than he deserves but when analyzing the lyrics it seems that he’s very strategic in the way that he arranges his verses; similar to the way a composer arranges music.
It’s all even and on the same level with the right amount of metaphors, and there are no low points during his raps. All of the lyrics get the same amount of shine, you can’t pinpoint a difference in terms of one verse being better than the others. This might not have been done on purpose but it’s a very interesting thing to notice.
