What Ever Happened To: Blahzay Blahzay?

When the East is in the house...Oh My God.

On this edition of Forgotten Fridays we reminisce over you, Blahzay Blahzay. The Brooklyn, New York duo consisted of Outloud and DJ/Producer P.F. Cuttin, and they killed it in 1996 with their underground banger "Danger" (above) which featured a slick sample from Jeru Da Damaja's "Come Clean".

They only released one album, Blah Blah Blah, in 1996 under PolyGram Records. Although the album didn't do that well, the single for "Danger" had heads nodding across the country. The song will always be "one of those tracks" that everybody knows as soon as they hear the first line. It's a classic to any hip hop connoisseur and was essential the reemergence of New York hip hop in the mid 90's. They did have another video that I remember watching on Yo! MTV Raps and The Box (what you know about that.) The song was called "Pain I Feel" and after listening to it again today, I was impressed. Classic sounding New York boom bap hip hop with dope rhymes, scratched hooks, and that bounce that makes your neck snap. If this joint came out today, it would be posted on this blog and added to the iPod with a swiftness.

But honestly, I have no idea what happened to these guys. Besides their album and music video, Blahzay Blahzay left very little trace of their existence. I tried to do some research and found a measly Wikipedia entry and that's it. No website, no MySpace page, no nothing.

If anyone has any more info regarding the whereabouts of Blahzay Blahzay., please contact us immediately. We need your help.

Thank you,

I am really happy you posted this, cause i wish i knew what happened. Their album as a whole was amazing, so surprised and let down nothing much happened after except a few singles here and there.
