will host a listening party for his new album, A Song for You
, at Club Envy on Wednesday. Bizzy’s first major-label album since 2001’s The Gift
is pretty much the same ol’ sing-songy hip-hop from the Bone Thugs-n-Harmony member.
Bizzy just released another album, Ruthless
, last month. But A Song for You
is somewhat of a comeback for the prolific Cleveland rapper (that big-league score – Virgin will distribute the disc – is part of the reason). Rapid-fire rhymes, familiar beats, and a fastest-rapper-on-the-planet showdown with Twista (in “Money”) make it the most listenable Biz CD in years. A Song for You
comes out on April 22.
The party starts at 9 p.m. at Club Envy (2132 West 25th Street). Bizzy will be there. So will local rapper Jack Da Rippa, no relation to that other rhyme-spitting Rippa, Chip. -- Michael Gallucci
