New York, NY (Top40 Charts / Zojak World Wide)
SenDog of Cypress Hill
and Sid Wilson of Slipknot, along with Karim Israel
of Arise Roots
join forces with Krooked Treez, on their newest single, "Militant Soldier," distributed by Zojak World Wide. The single is off their upcoming August, 2017 album release.
The four-minute, 36-second video was shot in various locations in Los Angeles, from roof-tops to the streets of downtown by Director, Estevan Oriol, who has produced for others acts, such as Linkin Park, Cypress Hill
and Blink 182
to name a few. Brian Vasquez, of Burbank's BNV Studios produced, mixed and mastered the song, which has heavy marching beats, with added scratching effects by rocker DJ Starscream (Slipknot) and includes haunting, smooth vocals from Karim Israel, who rhythmically chimes, "We are the Militant Soldiers, you know we're marching on."
The collaboration of SendDog and Sid Wilson, with Krooked Treez was the brainchild of Krooked Treez MC, O.Brown; a long-standing rapper and protege of B-Real/ Cypress Hill. "The whole process happened naturally. We all came together when everything was going down with Trump and the craziness of hearing about a wall being built. We wanted to come together and be a voice for the public and unite against racial injustice. Brian at BNV had the dope beat with Karim in place and we just took it to a new level with adding my homies," says O.Brown.
SenDog and O.Brown deliver a hard-hitting pungent rap, speaking of racial injustice and standing to unite. "So you want to build a wall and keep the raza out, go-head and build it, we already got another route," raps SenDog. "For MalcolmX, for Nelson
Mandela, for 2Pacalypse, clench your fist and resurrect," raps O.Brown. Lead vocalist, BZ Bwai brings his Belizean Central American flavor to tighten the signature Krooked Treez sound, singing his creole, "Standing up for our right, steppin out fa di dark - marchin on now, stepping with my army Bwai fa Belize yea."
Krooked Treez has performed mainstage at major music festivals, such as Russia's famed Kubana Festival, performing for an audience of nearly 200,000, as well as California Roots, South Park Music
N Glory, Shoreline Jam, and Bay Area Vibez Festivals to name a few. They have performed with major acts as 311, Bassnectar, Nas, Dirty Heads, Matisyahu, Slightly Stoopid, Korn, Rebelution, Ziggy and Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley, Stephen "Ragga" Marley, Steel Pulse, Pepper, System
of a Down, WuTang, Katchafire, SOJA and Iration.
The band is comprised of the B-Real produced and mentored Belizean MC O.Brown, along with Belizian born and raised BZ Bwai, who brings his catchy riddims and international flavor to the scene. Together, the two create magic, with O'Brown's hard knocks party-rocking lyricism and BZ Bwai's harmonic soulful and smooth vocals. California original bassist Bobby
Zen and guitarist extraordinaire Josh Stoney Eye both tighten the band with their rich sounds that are backed by years of experience. The band is currently in the studio recording a full-length album and will feature more surprise collaborations.
