A member of Main Attrakionz’ Green Ova family, Oakland’s Shady Blaze is the rapid-firing counterpart to Squadda B and MondreM.A.N.’s drowsy, ambling flows. “Intro Quick Time” is the opening cut from his The Grind, Hustle, & Talent mixtape (download below), on which Mondre and Noah23 contribute verses and Ryan Hemsworth and DK All Day produce tracks. In this straightforward video, Shady raps into the camera and shouts out Danny Brown over a sparse, bass-heavy beat, pausing only to take a breath. When your skills are this solid, you don’t need a lot of bells and whistles.
