A Cure For Whats Ailing Us: KRAZY RACE's New World Games
Hip hop, like our entire world, is ailing. But just as in our world where we find pockets of resistance everywhere from U.S. cities to the Latin American countryside to the Middle East, each hood or barrio has its homegrown rap revolutionaries. Every community has its artists who defy the norm of day-old beats, the canned money-cars-girls-violence lyrical content and bitten styles. Krazy Race proves with New World Games that he deserves to be recognized as a creator and innovator, a lucid thinker and talented vocalist. He works with eight talented producers to lay down a diverse soundscape that at times rocks harder than heavy metal, rolls smooth as a lowrider and drops funk like a '70s bassline.

The hard-driving production from Ringleader DJ Ace of Rhyme Poetic Mafia on "Toxic" is a highlight on the disc, especially for those who like hip hop that comes at you raw. Ace begins with a sparse introduction dominated by a repeated two-bar piano line. He quickly adds the heavy, distorted guitar sounds of A. Laguna, and a funky, relentless drum rhythm. Guest, Savage Joe, and Krazy Race spit in your face lyrics throughout and Ace finishes the masterpiece with quick scratching.

DJ Quad of 5th Battalion Entertainment begins "Illuminati" with a tight high hat rhythm. With the opening lines from Krazy Race he adds an eery piano line, a hard repeated kick drum sound, occasional power guitar chords held for a couple of measures, and other assorted sounds. Over this track Krazy Race drops knowledge and asks us questions about the elite policymakers, politicians, and crooks/businessmen who control most of our resources including our labor and food supply. He forces us to face up to such facts as the founding of this country as the theft of native land ("America the beautiful was one big crime" and "the land your standing on right now is fuckin stole"), the secret nature of the decisions of world capitalist planners at the World Bank, World Trade Organization and International Monetary Fund ("who will always rule this world with inner secrecy"), our dissolving civil rights ("seems like everybody's blind to the facts/ask your congressman about the Patriot Act"), militarization ("they created NAFTA/what comes after?/a global army government that brings world disaster"), mind control/psychological operations/propaganda, and increasing corporate control ("foreign nations run by corporations"). Krazy Race opens his critical, intellectual tour-de-force with a definition of genocide and ends with his response to the global elite as he samples a speech given by Students for a Democratic Society leader, Mario Savio, in which he encourages people to reject elite politics and violence and "stop the machine from working at all."

Lyrically, Krazy Race is among the best as he "spits soliloquies and metaphors that will never be cloned." He has the gift of language similar to that of Mos Def, Langston Hughes, raulsalinas, GURU, or Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, for that matter. While the production and lyricism distinguishes Krazy Race from most rap artists today, what really keeps me coming back to this cd is his ability to analyze social reality from the perspective of a young, brown, urban intellectual. Whether he is examining his hometown, Los Angeles, in "City of Angels," telling the story of the making and mindset of a young gangbanger in "Hole in His Soul," or relating his struggles and triumphs as in "Blood, Sweat, and Tears" and "Soul Asylum II," Krazy Race illuminates important topics with rare precision and lucidity.

Krazy Race's revolutionary critique on "Dedicated" and "Fact or Fiction" put him in the same class of political commentators as Noam Chomsky, Arundhati Roy, El Vuh, Immortal Technique, F.I.L.T.H.E.E. Immigrants, Edward Said, Iron Sheik and Psycho Realm. Like these artists and intellectuals Krazy Race drops knowledge about the political and economic systems that George Bush, Tony Blair, Dick Cheney, John Kerry and other global economic and political elites would rather you did not hear. On "Dedicated" Krazy Race links the destruction of native Mexican cultures and peoples with current policies that cause misery, pain and poverty in urban Chicana/o communities. With the following lines he suggests that Chicanas/os are being systematically undermined: "ever noticed in these streets liquor stores on every corner?/ killa-California, such a poisonous formula" and "and yet you celebrate the hate,/days of genocide where my kind was robbed and raped/In 1521 we we're slaugthered by the thousands/Now in 2000 we're still living in project-housing." Of course, these things are news to many of us who have been educated and socialized in a racist, eurocentric public school system and U.S. society. Many of us, Chicanas/os, have had a similar situation of brainwashing as Krazy Race describes in these lines from the song. "As I'm sitting in class their trying to teach me European/I'm listening to a voice, but I represent the bean/- eating population/Founders of cultivation/people of the SUN, mighty brown nation Who've been suppressed and held down for many long years."

"Fact or Fiction" continues his analysis of injustice, linking crimes and immoral behaviors to President Bush and others in his administration. He quotes President Bush in the intro. Bush in his normally smug and arrogant manner discusses the massive assault on Iraq which has now claimed over 100,000 Iraqi civilian lives. Krazy Race claims that as soon as "George Bush gets in office/global genocide" and acknowledges that "we're living in hard times." The greed of Bush and his corporate buddies ("mr. president/I've come to realize/you want complete control of everything under the skies") is currently the central cause of misery for millions. These "new world bonnie and clydes," thieves and murderers invaded Iraq for oil and greed. Any rational examination of the facts reveals the same truths. Bush is merely a "famous frontman for the powers that be" who continues to make "money for one percent of the nation." Krazy Race sounds off about the stolen 2000 Presidential election and wonders "will the people vote him back?"

As I write this the U.S. public goes to the polls in an election that so far is a dead heat. With so much disinformation and distractions fed to us through the media and popular culture (including corporate rap), we are likely to elect a dangerous man. In this era of propaganda and psychological operations aimed at keeping crooks and villains in power, artist-intellectuals like Krazy Race are needed. This cd is very necessary.

"Live From L.A." Literally, is an intro for deep street politics with Los Angele
When it comes to L.A. Hip Hop, Whittier native, Markie "Krazy Race" Ramirez sets an uncommon underground tone. Not a new comer to this game, a very established Krazy Race, puts the city of Los Angeles as the main star with his newly released album "New World Games." The album itself, features 15 tracks of head bobbing beats and streetwise educational lyrics that lock you in from track 1.

"Live From L.A." Literally, is an intro for deep street politics with Los Angeles as the backdrop. Krazy Race puts his struggles and own technique into every word, His tracks flow, even if you're not feeling his lyrics, he rides any beat flawlessly. Like all album's, songs will stick out more than others, like "Blood Sweat & Tears," besides the dope ass beat that will make you nod your head, you catch yourself repeating the chorus, almost immediately. On "Dedicated," a track dedicated to overall urban life, makes you think of what people really struggle for.

A personal favorite of mine would be "City Of Angels." The track starts with "Welcome to Los Angeles" and his commanding voice sets the tone, as his lyrics pump the streets into every word and phrase, as if he's preaching the word. The word of Los Angeles, that is. This track straight represents, a very detailed flow of the famous city. His delivery and deep vocal tone makes this an anthem. Look for the music video coming soon.

"Hole In His Soul" kind of starts slow, which is very relative to the perception of the message in which Krazy Race conveys in the song. I feel, it could do without the background track, though. Krazy gives a cut for all the smokers and Low riders on "Hydroponic Dream." Featured on the track are THC and Big Rich. Both MC's add to the Cruising style this track delivers. I couldn't help but blast this song on repeat. "Illuminati," "Soul Asylum II" & "Toxic," are three of the rock fused tracks on the album. "Illuminati," was not a particular song I was able to play on repeat. But, while it is rock fused, it's a very political minded track.

Krazy spits: "Land of the free, Home of the Brave, enlighten yourself
before its too late."

"Soul Asylum II," has the same kind of style as "Illuminati," but he concentrates more on his personal life. "Toxic," which is featuring Savage Joe, caught my attention from his first lyric definitely. It's worth taking notice of, both MC's deliver hard and direct, they're both sick with it. My only complaint is that it wasn't long enough. The last track "Bill Of Rights (Pre-Patriot Act)" gives the album the perfect ending. The message, as a whole, reminds us of what we work for everyday. It makes us question, whether or not, who ever is in Office/Congress is still living
by the Bill of Rights, or is the Government just bullshit. Over all this CD is what Hip-Hop is all about. Leading in a different direction than the normal, Krazy Race is unique with his approach but fuses Hip-Hop, with other wise overlooked issues that what we need to represent.

Social Criticism to the fullest
This cd takes latin hiphop to a new level. Krazy Race takes you to a world of racial, political and economic points of views. I liked the positive messages that it delivers. Social criticism is counterbalanced by engaging lyrics that grab your attention immediately.

KRAZY RACE review from the UK
KRAZY RACE

NEW WORLD GAMES

REVIEW BY SURFACE (UE)



From the huge LA 5th Battalion fam comes Krazy Race, a fam committed to educating and supporting the local community, mainly latino, looking for alternatives to gang culture while addressing the injustices visited upon their neighbourhood.

Krazy Race has an impressive CV in working with artists such as Irisscience from Dilated Peoples, Rhettmatic from the Beat Junkies and Tony Touch to mention just a few. Taking his name from the frantic nature of life in LA for a young latino trying to make the break through with the odds stacked up against.

"I been on the hustle man, been grindin for years, blood sweat & tears, now the time is here/To make my presence known on the microphone, Krazy Race is the name, welcome to my zone" repeats Krazy Race in BLOOD SWEAT & TEARS which follows the title track NEW WORLD GAMES with it's chorus hook "It takes just one day, in any given hour many seconds or frames, these Californian streets can go up in flames, like Reservoir Dogs playin new world games".

"In 1521 we were slaughtered by the thousands, now in 2000 we're still livin in project housin" in the highly charged DEDICATED, pictures gettin painted early that this is a politically motivated emcee from south east LA explaining his situation as a latino within the hiphop industry and within the United States. Never more so well laid out as in CITY OF ANGELS, and if anyone in the UK has seen the current tv documentary showing about the new LA Police Chief who moved from New York where he had a highly successful rate of crime reduction, his tactics have not been so successful in LA, and despite initial statistics showing an initial reduction in homicides, this soon reversed and heavy handed tactics were not seen as a long term solution. It's a very interesting, balanced series and much of the subject matter within CITY OF ANGELS has Krazy Race addressin this. In the line "livin in LA is like playin the lotto" in HOLE IN HIS SOUL, it pretty much sums up the situation for some without any attempt at glamourising the ganglife or violence. That's the difference in terms of current hiphop. With many artists frontin a gangsta lifestyle, and makin a huge sum of money by sellin the lie to the youth, here's Krazy Race livin in the middle of a community afflicted by daily violence and murder and sayin it's anythin but glamourous-in fact it's a fuckin nightmare. Such a community brings big heat from the police, and therefore everyone of black or latino origin become suspects. So peeps comin down on him and his from all angles, and that's the struggle. However as part of a pro active movement like 5th Battalion, there's an attempt by the latino community to support each other and build a future, and that includes gettin a solid foothold in hiphop.

There's an impression that the latino emcee gotta prove himself more, move the game on the extra mile in order to get noticed in the industry. Then when you add to that the perception, as in the track ILLUMINATI, that there is systematic genocide going on by the US government in their inaction to stop the killings in LA of "minority" groups, as these groups are not economically viable, then you can see Krazy Race is spittin from the heart and it's a serious business. Is it paranoid? Well, consider this. In New York City there are 40,000 police officers. In LA, 5000.

In FACT OR FICTION, cuttin through Bush's policy on war (& Blair gets a mention), as well as the election that got him in, ENRON, dumbing down by state sponsored tv and media, in fact it's a very intelligently put together track, holding its hands up to those accusing the "conspiracy theorists" of paranoia, but still providing the evidence to back the claims. Final track BILL OF RIGHTS is a poignant reminder of people's rights in the USA as read from that Bill, and given all the subject matter contained in the album, it highlights perfectly what Krazy Race is talkin about and it does appear that a number of rights are being violated every day in the name of containment and security. This is a "crie de coeur" from Krazy Race. I dont live in LA and can only go by what I read, see on tv or hear on radio as to the reality. Occassionally there's a genuinely balanced docu to get a better idea. Krazy Race questions the government and powers that be using his artform so that people can connect with the reality, much in the same way as a satirist or comedian do in their particular artform.

To get his album is to enter the real world of this latino living in south east LA, to share his struggle. Of course, when the cd stops, we can get on with our lives where we're at, but Krazy Race is still there, tryin to deal with it just as with the other 150,000 inhabitants of that part of LA, tryin to get the message out, tryin to be pro active and offer solutions.

He will enjoy support from his local community who will see their own lives in his work, and if he continues to paint pictures with skilled metaphors, bring on some heat with big bangin tunes, and continue to offer solutions rather than just highlightin the negative, the wider hiphop community will be checkin for him soon.

Track to watch for FACT OR FICTION

Review posted up on GLOBALCYPER.COM
Also out of Los Angeles is Krazy Race with his album, ‘New World Games’ (www.krazyrace.com). Krazy Race has a strong political leaning to his raps that even spill over to less politically charged cuts like the weed related, ‘Hydroponic Dreams’. Speaking on his hometown experiences such as on, ‘City Of Angels’ as well as addressing topics like the machinations behind the war in Iraq Krazy Race is not your average mindless MC. Giving listeners some refreshing food for thought over the often-hard beats inclusive of some live instrumentation, ‘New World Games’ is fine listening for anyone who wants something more than just raps about cash, money and hoes.
