DiRT & Nazir

DiRT & Nazir
Country:United States
Info:The album Broken Earth was intended to be a split EP between DiRT and the crew Nazir, but evolved into a collaboration effort.

DiRT
DiRT is a San Diego based artist, who has worked together with POD among others. He is renowed for his emo hiphop and his sound is therefore sometimes percieved as dark. He works with his crew under the name Shadow of the locust. This is a changing team of MC's.

Nazir
The members of Nazir during the Broken Earth project were Parable, evolvE, Edgar Szahans, Radius, shunDi and Shalom 7. In addition Solemn and Yawnski also produced and took care of the turntables. Besides these last two members, Steps was also a B-Boy in the crew.

Split
The crew split up due to religious differences. There were four or five churches represented in the crew and some decided to leave, which left only 4 MCs: Edgar Szahans, Parable, evolvE and shunDi. ShunDi went solo, like Parable and Edgar Szahans.
As Edgar states: "Nazir was really a ministry and not just a crew, so now that we just may be making music together only, we’re not sure what we’ll be known as."

Production
The beat making on Broken Earth was done by evolvE and DiRT. Parable co-produced some of the tracks.
