“Among the most talented [in Detroit], combining clever wordplay, and a natural ear for beats, with sobering storytelling”¬†–¬†The FADER

The Announcement:

Tearing up instrumentals with torrents of relentless bars, Detroit’s¬†FMB DZ¬†commands a loyal legion of fans with his witty punchlines, detailed street stories, and sly charisma. Capitalizing on years of grassroots momentum, DZ announces¬†In My Bag,¬†his upcoming project. Gleefully illustrating the art of the hustle, DZ showcases a gritty lyrical realism and a full arsenal of flows on the tape, demonstrating how he became one of the most popular artists of any genre in his hometown. Rhyming over uptempo piano-led instrumentals from some of Detroit’s best beatmakers, as well as production from the likes of¬†Cassius Jayand others, DZ crafts banger after banger, providing several new hits for Detroit’s new rap renaissance, including previously released tracks such as¬†Made Man”¬†and¬†60 Seconds,” which¬†The FADER¬†named one of the¬†Ten Best Rap Songs Right Now. Featuring appearances from¬†E-40, Philthy Rich, Doughboy Clay,¬†and¬†La’Britney,¬†In The Bag, releasing¬†July 27th,¬†is the ideal vehicle for DZ to burst out of Motown and onto the national scene.

One of the most prominent emcees in Detroit’s new rap renaissance, FMB DZ built his audience with his consistent output and unstoppable work ethic. Born in the Plymouth section of Detroit’s West Side, DZ grew up idolizing hometown heroes like Eminem, Obie Trice, and Doughboyz Cashout, rapping throughout high school to make ends meet. In 2016, DZ started to build buzz with his impressive music videos. “I made sure I shot two or three videos a week for two months straight,” says DZ. “We spread the word through these videos. After that, my social media came about. I had a million views on YouTube long before I ever had 10,000 followers.‚ÄĚ On the strength local hits such as¬†The Truth”¬†(5 million YouTube views), “Hold Me Down” (6 million views), and “Yesterday” (1.7 million views since April 28), which features¬†fellow Detroit rising star¬†Sada Baby¬†and appeared on the popular mixtape¬†The Gift, FMB DZ became the¬†most popular artist in Detroit¬†on YouTube, streaming more over six months than the likes of Future and Chris Brown. With his next project, and an upcoming joint project with Sada Baby, DZ plans to put the city on his back, dragging the new Motown sound into the mainstream.

To accompany the album announcement, FMB DZ shares¬†Fast Money,” a glistening new banger. Floating above inspirational piano chords and synth ribbons, FMB DZ creates a theme song for himself and his¬†FastMoneyBoyz¬†brethren on the new single. As he croons during the infectious, auto-tuned hook: “Every time I do my dance, I got racks on me/Every time you¬†see me out, big strap on me/It’s my life a n*gga can’t take that from me/Turnaround Gang, we get Fast Money.” Premiered by¬†The FADER, who said FMB DZ “is among the most talented [in Detroit], combining clever wordplay, and a natural ear for beats, with sobering storytelling,” “Fast Money” is available gratis with pre-order of¬†In My Bag,¬†distributed by¬†EMPIRE.
