ALBUM REVIEW

Lazā

In The Meantime

Released November 2019

Two years after making waves under the name Misundvrstood, this talented rapper signed a deal with Warner/Chappell Music and reemerged as Lazā. Kube 93.3 declared her one of the top “Local Artists You Should Know,” while Respect My Region says she’s “a diamond: tough as shit but with confident, smooth and silky delivery.” Her debut record is a trap odyssey, an auto-tuned eight-song blast clocking in under 20 minutes. It’s supported by heavyweights Ellis Prescott and Souf Souf’s $hotta Pi$tol, and was executive produced by the magic of Ruby Room’s Nima Skeemz.
