DiRT & Nazir
|Info:||The album Broken Earth was intended to be a split EP between
DiRT and the crew Nazir, but evolved into a collaboration
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.
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.
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."
The beat making on Broken Earth was done by evolvE and DiRT.
Parable co-produced some of the tracks.
