Video: Tasha The Amazon – “Watch It Burn”
Toronto’s Hardest Emcee Returns with This Incendiary, High Snobiety-Premiered Pyro Porno Off Die Every Day
Critical Praise for Tasha The Amazon:
“Toronto’s Tasha The Amazon is a Rising Star” – Pigeons & Planes
“Tasha is powerful, and sounds even moreso over these absurdly big, grimy, hectic, infectious beats” – Respect Mag
While many of her Toronto contemporaries showcase their sensitivity over gauzy, reverb-heavy beats, Tasha The Amazon takes to each track with a match and a can of kerosene. Produced by Tasha and her production partner Danthrax, “Watch It Burn” finds the German-Jamaican rapper mercilessly attacking an apocalyptic beat with a fiery, Kendrick Lamar-like flow. Premiered today by High Snobiety, the new video for “Watch It Burn” takes the title concept literally, with Tasha and some compadres launching fireworks into the night sky, while Tasha starts a raging bonfire with a napalm gun. “Watch It Burn” is a typically intense track from Die Every Day, Tasha’s latest EP, a blistering assault packed with thumping beats, ferocious verses, and anarchic lyrics. Well received by critics on both sides of the border, Die Every Day recently earned a nomination for Rap Recording of the Year in the Juno Awards, Canada’s biggest music award show, placing her alongside fellow nominees Drake, Tory Lanez, Belly, and Jazz Cartier.
Explains Tasha to High Snobiety, “I love style, but I’ve always found more power in not giving a fuck about brands or labels. This video has that real power: Just me and my mob… and some explosions.”
Famous in Toronto for her energetic stage performances and her warehouse parties, which are notorious for getting shut down by the police, Tasha began to grow a following in the U.S. with her debut solo project, FiDiYootDem. Prior to the release of Die Another Day, Tasha received praise from publications such as Billboard, FADER, and Hypetrak for singles like “Picasso Leaning” and the Pigeons & Planes-premiered “Prayer.” A recent signee to the Windish Agency, now under the umbrella of Paradigm Talent Agency, Tasha will bring her anarchic energy to Texas when she performs at official showcases at SXSW.
