With the debut of his first full length solo album release, the "Pleaze Believe" LP, Neezie Pleaze (former frontman for the Classic Hip Hop Live Band; Maroon Colony) pushes the envelope of music, and traditional Hip-hop.
N. Pleaze plays well on throw backs to his self-professed influences (the likes of NWA, Nirvana, and The Pharcyde, to Beastie Boys, The Strokes and Jay-Z), and creates a new style of Hip-hop which Pleaze has coined "Converse-Music", or "Conversation-O-Flow".
Inciting movements is one of the chief reasons Neezie Pleaze established the Independent Record Label PDB Records, helping define the "Puget Sound", and further propel the Northwest-Coast as a force to be reckoned with.
"I've lived in the S-E-A my whole life," says Pleaze, "My Mom's side of the family is from South Africa, and my Dad's is from here, so I was allowed a unique perspective…"
When asked about his music, Pleazie knows exactly where he's coming from, and what Neezie Pleaze's character is about.
"I wanted my shit to be something the homie could bump, but how I would do it... and [to also] prove that commercially viable flows don't have to be fucking weak-as-all-hell. The fact that I be on some of the same shit as these other dudes, yet mine is conveyed so eloquently- says a lot to me, and about me..."
When asked to further describe his distinctive style of discourse, Pleaze explained it as;
"That little dialogue that carries throughout my flow and my particular brand of satire… I chop it up with the listener, like you would with the homie. That's that Converse-Music, you know? That's what makes me different. I'm a conversationalist. I drop Conversation-O-Flows, dialogue and all!"
The Pleaze Believe LP dares to bid fair-well to the secular trappings of today's Hip-hop quagmire, while forging a path into tomorrow's sound. Listeners quickly discern that this record is comprised of pure love for lyricism and song writing. Featuring the hottest cast of Sea-Town producers ever assembled (including the veteran talents of Vitamin D, and BeanOne), Neezie Pleaze's Pleaze Believe LP is the shit and demands to be experienced live!
