Uzi ft. Strillz & Khal’El – “Ballin (Remix)” #ThrowbackSessions

“Ballin (Remix)” again falls back to early ’07 with #ThrowbackSessions during my early days on the mic. We did a parody of the then popular We Fly High (Ballin) song that put our own twist to it. No attempts at greatness here, just a young group of guys doing a comedy song for shiggles. I summoned my close homey Jon to scream obnoxious adlibs and the song turned out pretty goofy.

Uzi ft. Diceman, Khal’El, & Young Breez – Vibe Wit It (Black Shades Remix) #ThrowbackSessions

“Vibe Wit It (Black Shades Remix)” jumps #ThrowbackSessions to mid ’09 when I was partying heavily. All the partying and strip club hopping I was into gave me a new appreciation for trap/club music which in turn changed my approach to songwriting. With a better understanding of delivery and charisma I was now shaken out of my super underground mind state and wanted to fuse my lyricism with more style and flavor. By the time of this recording, which took place in Khal’El’s home, I had full command of the mic and had found my own unique voice.

Uzi ft. Khal’El – “Grammy Family (Freestyle)” #ThrowbackSessions

“Grammy Family (Freestyle)” rewinds #ThrowbackSessions to a very early 07 when I was still trying to find my voice and style. Khal’El and I were still writing and recording in my room on my first mic and here we decided to trade bars back and forth with no set structure. He wrote and recorded his piece and I responded & vice versa. I was in my lyrical-miracle-underground mind state at this particular time but still felt like I was dope at the time lol. We were also going through a weird no curses in the verses phase but I think it’s safe to say we could always flow.

Uzi ft. Stephanie Ciceron – “Beautiful Struggle” (Prod. by SL the Don) #ThrowbackSessions

“Beautiful Struggle” is the first original song in #ThrowbackSessions and one of the very first original solo songs that I’ve ever done. We recorded this back in early ’08 at Figgie McKnight’s studio. I was still at a point where I was trying to find my style but at the time I was beginning to do performances outside of just open mic venues. I needed original music to perform & promote to get myself to the next level so with this and a couple of other songs I was able to accomplish that goal. I met Stephanie Ciceron in college and always thought she had a beautiful voice so I got her to lend a hand to what I was doing and this was one of our best collaborations.

Uzi ft. D-n-T & Khal’El – “Hit Da Club (Takeoff Remix)” #ThrowbackSessions

“Hit Da Club (Takeoff Remix)” finds #ThrowbackSessions in mid ’08 when I was fully entrenched in promoting my music and hitting open mics religiously to practice my stage show. This song was recorded in Khal’El’s home after I was summoned by D-n-T (Dice and Tweet) to jump on a record we could use to rock the club. I pretty much had a grip on my style and often animated delivery by this time so flowing over this kind of production had me feeling right at home.

Uzi – E.T. (Extraterrestrial) (Freestyle) #ThrowbackSessions

“E.T. (Extraterrestrial) (Freestyle)” takes #ThrowbackSessions to mid ’07 when I was still experimenting with different flows and rhyme schemes. Fully confident in my talent, I was finally heavily promoting my music and getting positive feedback but still wanted to master my craft. Here you can find me with a much more laid back delivery than usual with more focus directed at wordplay and off kilter rhyme patterns.

Uzi ft. Strillz & Khal’El – I Wanna Fuck You (Freestyle) #ThrowbackSessions

“I Wanna Fuck You (Freestyle)” is another addition to #ThrowbackSessions that comes from early in my career. I was fresh out of high school in mid ’06 and recording everything with the homeys at my house. I was still trying to find my voice and style here but displayed some early wordplay from random punchlines that used to pop in my head during school. Strillz & Khal’El dropped some of their earliest work here too (I think we all sound pretty young here lol). This is one of the first songs that I saw people putting on their Myspace pages and telling me they had to run it back to back — that let me know we were doing something right. #ThrowbackSessions #FloridasFinest

Uzi – “Chunk Up Da Deuce (Freestyle)” #ThrowbackSessions

“Chunk Up Da Deuce” takes #ThrowbackSessions a little further back to mid ’06 when I was first concentrating on switching my flow with the beat. Another song written and recorded in my bedroom, this freestyle finds me going from double time rhyming to slowed down wordplay, and back to double time. I’ve always had a knack for rapping fast thanks to some of my favorite artists like Tech N9ne, Z-ro, Twista, etc. and this is one of the first times that I think I did it with precision.
