Back in the day, the only way you were able to break records was if you "knew a guy" or had connections to the DJ booth in clubs and various venues.

It doesn't take much for Delaware native Barz Nice to be labeled as a "Boom Bap Chemist". This emcee and I sat down to discuss his life and passion for the Hip-Hop craft. 

After going on a hiatus, Barz and I talked about his thoughts on today's Hip-Hop as well as where he got his start as a second generation artist. Having worked with some greats such as EPMD, Big Daddy Kane and more, his soon to be released EP, Sample Situations has us waiting for the drop. 
The first single off this album No Mistakes Allowed shows us exactly why he is a Boom Bap Chemist in every way. He delivers us justice with his overall swag and lyrical skill and leaves you wanting to hear more. 
Barz is a master of his craft and intelligently does his part in awakening the masses with his message and overall versatility on different productions. 
The DMV blessed us with such an amazing artist and his contribution to the culture is much needed.
