It is no secret that yours truly has been trying to get Cousin Stizz for a First Look Friday feature. His brand of Dorchester-bully-rap makes him standout from the rest of the home schooled MCs who play nice with each other and shy away from rap competition. “No Bells” still rings out of my speakers whenever I need that extra oomph in the gym or just to navigate my neighborhood and I want to have my “don’t-bother-me” face today.
With that in mind, this Boston-bred original is announcing his new mixtape, One Night Only, as the follow up to his 2016 EP, MONDA. Due out on May 12th via RCA, Stizz is pushing “Headlock” featuring Migos‘ Offset to lead the charge. Produced by Vinylz, “Headlock” is a three minute track that features Stizz signature drawl over an infectious beat. As Offset flips a quick verse and drops some hall of fame ad-libs, Zane Lowe has already gave this record some certified spins.
The 25-year-old rapper is currently on tour with KYLE as part of the SUPER Tour, where the duo will cross the Midwest and West Coast before ending in early May.
