A rapper like MidaZ the Beast simply shouldn’t exist today. In a game populated by artists who lack either character, talent, or some combination of the two, the Orlando emcee is both a seasoned writer and charismatic personality on the microphone. Mixing the intricate wordplay of DOOM, lyrical ferocity of Nas, and stylistic swagger of Raekwon, MidaZ has a knack for leaving a memorable impression on listeners through songs from his own catalog as well as on show-stealing guest spots. After years of developing his craft (as heard on acclaimed mixtapes like MidaZ Vs. Pete Rock, MidaZ Vs. Muggs, the El MidaZ Affair and LOOPS), the Doxside Music Group artist has begun his ascent into the circle of Hip Hop’s elite. Producers Alchemist, Oh No, and Marco Polo have all personally reached out to MidaZ for his trademark beast-like bars on their recent projects. With the August 2013 release of his official debut album AU on HiPNOTT, more of the world is about to learn what so many have already recognized – there are few rappers that exist who can even hold a candle to MidaZ the Beast.
