Smoke DZA Hits NZ Tomorrow!


For Immediate Release: Wednesday 14 November 2012

Smoke DZA Hits NZ Tomorrow!
Pre-Sale Tickets Now Sold Out!

Off the back of selling out all Auckland pre-sales for this week’s event, NYC’s finest Smoke DZA hits NZ tomorrow to perform two highly exclusive shows; Auckland’s Hard Luck Café on Thursday the 15th November, and Wellington’s Bodega on Friday the 16th. A final 50 tickets from the second release for the Auckland show are now available from www.undertheradar.co.nz

Alongside Action Bronson, Harry Fraud, Mayhem Lauren and A$AP Rocky, Harlem's Smoke DZA represents a crucial part of the new wave of New York Hip-Hop. A voice you might have heard through his breakout YouTube hits '4 Loko' featuring A$AP Rocky, 'Continental Kush Breakfast' and ‘Marley & Me' (Remix).

Inspired by the likes of Jay-Z, Biggie, Mase, Big L and The Diplomats, Smoke DZA started rapping in his teens. After slow grinding on the New York battle rap circuit and performing as part of Smoke & Numbers, he's found international recognition over the last few years through a steady stream of mixtapes and a serial approach to song feature appearances.

In the process his humorous green thumbed bars, vivid storytelling and relaxed flow has seen him stand shoulder to shoulder with the likes of Wiz Khalifa, Curren$y, A$AP Rocky, BIG K.R.I.T., Devin The Dude, Domo Genesis (OFWGKTA) andSchoolboy Q.

Signed to High Times Records/Cinematic Music Group and a member of Curren$y's Jet Life Crew, with the recent release of his new Rugby Thompson album, Smoke DZA has critical acclaim both inside and outside the hip-hop world. Produced entirely by legendary new generation New York producer Harry Fraud, Rugby Thompson is a statement of intent from one of the best new rapvoices you'll hear this year.

Smoke DZA is genuine talent, one currently making a fast rise. Catch him in intimate concert on his debut New Zealand tour, with acclaimed NZ Hip Hop supports, @peace and Team Dynamite. Bragging rights are not optional here, they're guaranteed.
