Sage Records recording artiste Blaazz, recently released his second mixtape titled Lyrical Messiah.

The mixtape, delivered inBlaazz's inimitable style, is expected to engage the minds of scholars and ordinary laypersons alike. Where else could you find a dancehall deejay making references to Caribbean novelist Earl Lovelace and Russian composerPyotr IlyichTchaikovsky in one 16-bar verse?

"The response from people in the streets has been incredible. It ah dash outta road hard, we ah get crazy love, especially with the attractive cover. We dash out over 500 CD already and counting," he said.

Fans have been raving about his brilliant flow and his witty references and unusual metaphors.

"I just try to push the boundaries of what dancehall can say and show that one can use intellect to teach and entertain. Knowledge is power, you don't have to sing about sex and partying all the time," the young deejay who scored grade ones in English Language and English Literature, said.

Last week, he shot three videos for his soon-to-be-released singles, Cameras Don't Lie, Vybz Kartel Ah The Messi and Wine.

"The videos dem a go shot, mi love how the Boom promotional girls who were in the video responded to the Vybz Kartel Ah The Messi and the Wine songs. The videos dem slap, well well mad, everybody who see the previews say the Kartel one ah go the hardest, dem cyaan wait fi see it pon dem TV," Blaazz said.
