25 Facts About Iron Braydz – Verbal sWARdz

• March 20, 2014 • Comments (1)

Iron Braydz

PREVIOUS | 25 Facts About Matt Maddox – Righteous Fury | 25 Facts About Imperial and Kinetik – Pencils Not Pistols

We’re gearing up for the release of Iron Braydz’s next project “Verbal sWARdz” on 14th April 2014. Here’s an exclusive “25 Facts About Iron Braydz – Verbal sWARdz” which is a great insight into the project. You’ll be able to download Verbal sWARdz from Braydz’s Official Bandcamp Page.

1. Verbal sWARdz has three tracks I already put out in the course of a few years that passed (Firey Read in 2011, Dobermans and Scorpion Sting).
2. Dobermans featuring Phat Kat has already got a video on my YouTube channel shot by Sinikle.
3. Firey Red featuring Sean Price got a lot of Coverage especially from 2dopeboys and NahRight.
4. Dobermans and Firey Red were both originally meant to go on the SLUGGA album which I haven’t recorded yet.
5. During the course of recording some more tracks for the EP, I, Phat Kat and Agor (producer of Dobermans) had agreed to do an EP together.
6. The verse on Verbal sWARdz (the title track) was originally written for the EP with Phat Kat and Agor.
7. Dedd wasn’t originally called that, realised I had lost my lyrics when I got on the train before going to Chemo’s to record and out of frustration I wrote Dredd before I got there.
8. All my beats were made on Reason 5 on my laptop with a pair of Zenheiser headphones.
9. Rambo was for a project called Chimera that was devised by fellow Triple Darkness member Solar Black. The line-up was Skiblah, Black Crypton, Solar Black and my self.
10. I ended up using it on the EP because everyone’s schedules were hectic.
11. Scorpion Sting was inspired by “the House of Flying Daggers” on Raekwon’s OB4CL 2.
12. My verse on Crowbar Head topper was influenced by how I felt when English Frank made the comment about the security guard being African. I know he apologised for what he said and done, however it still offended me at the time and I can sincerely say I have no issues with him.
13. The first part of my verse on Crowbar Head Topper was a true story, happened a long time ago.
14. The beat I created for Fiery Red was a remix of a beat Chemo made for me some years back.
15. The intro to V.S was taken from Thundering Mantis, one of my all time favourite classics. I also felt that part of the movie represents how I feel. It almost feels like the black community is being laughed at right now in the height of recent and current events to do with some of the racial tension that’s building up in London (and worldwide), but no many people seem to want to talk about it. Bryan Leungs outburst just before Scorpion Sting kicks in is the full representation of the project. An outburst of facts, feelings, perspectives and opinions.
16. Millennium was the most difficult lyric for me to write because of its intricacies and alignment of words. Plus I had the pleasurable pressure of making sure my verses were up to par with the big brother Po.
17. The artwork for V.S was done in 2010, but it was finalised last year.
18. Verbal sWARdz drops the exact same time Triple Darkness had made me an Official member 14.4.14.
19. Just before I finished recording the EP I had made a cameo in my first movie (Night Bus).
20. Crowbar Head Topper is also on Ray Vendetta and Solar Blacks releases.
21. My daughter stayed up with me while I finished making the beat for Scorpion Sting.
22. I wasn’t going to put the EP out at one point, because I was done with music for a while and it made no sense to me until Cyrus Malachi and M9 had words with me.
23. Jehst was present in my recording session and he lost his marbles when he’d heard the Rambo and Scorpion Sting instrumentals, He was also surprised when he found out I made them. That shit was funny as hell.
24. Dave Pyster who created my custom swords was also the inspiration for me choosing the title of the EP.
25. This project is dedicated to my good friend Natty and Ricky Bishop who both passed away due to police brutality.
