Seasons come and go. Trends pop and deflate. Careers rise and fall. Genres of music live and die. Once in awhile, an artist steps up who doesn’t quite follow the cycle. He doesn’t pay heed to "What’s cool." He doesn’t give a shit about "Who’s hot." He doesn’t follow the zeitgeist but, rather, the zeitgeist follows him. Hyro Da Hero is about to flip rap upside down, inside out and all around.
Currently creating an industry buzz like a disrupted beehive – Los Angeles based purveyor of “Gangsta Rock” – Hyro Da Hero will be coming to the UK this Spring as special guest on The Blackout UK tour. His debut album, “Birth, School, Work, Death” was released earlier this year to critical acclaim. Hyro spins his own cycle of hip hop on Birth, School, Work, Death. Loading rock ‘n’ roll attitude into
explosive, engaging and enthralling rap music. With the crunch of a power chord and the snap of a rhyme, the Houston-bred Los Angeles-based MC spits pure fire. Produced by Ross Robinson—the man behind Korn, Slipknot and At the Drive-in’s legendary debuts— “Birth, School, Work, Death” sounds like Nas fronting Rage Against the Machine.
Hyro’s live band certainly have the pedigree to pummel as well. Guttural riffs feed into razor-sharp rhymes, building a sound that’s as introspective as it is infectious. Hyro Da Hero fires off one aural grenade after another whether it’s violent punk-funk vibrancy of "Sleeping Giants" or the sugary bitch-slap of "We Still Popular".
Across the album, Hyro experiments with a myriad of styles from the psyched-out pop of "Man in My City" to his call-to-arms, "Grudge”, where he proudly declares, "I ain’t Lil Wayne."
This is hip hop like you’ve never heard. “A real voice that ain’t mutha fuckin’ autotuned”.
