Philly-based emcee/producer, Zilla Rocca may not be known in every rap circle, but it's only a matter of time until his name rings bells.
Alongside his band, The Shadowboxers, he's managed to develop his notoriety as a rap-noir artist-- a skill that's assisted him in the creation of a catalog of over twenty titles, and countless remixes. Taking on Guilty Simpson and Small Professor's "Go," featuring both Elucid and Castle, which first appeared on the duos collaborative Highway Robbery project, Rocca adds a new layer of depth to the track, by adding his signature hardboiled production savvy to create an elaborate remix that changes in its entirety, for each verse.

Although scholars have debated the actual birthdate of JC, capitalist Americans have conveniently pinned that date to December 25th. But don't wish the New Jersey native and now Harlem resident Kyle Rapps a Merry Christmas, he simply doesn't believe in that stuff. And if you were to look back at his checkered childhood, along with the life he currently leads, I don't think his Frank Cross like similarities would be of any surprise.
The production on "Don't Try," which comes courtesy of NYC's Pan, is brimming with nostalgia, as Rapps takes you back to the days of pretending to understand Liquid Swords and watching the Knicks lose on MSG. Some things don't change...at least he observes one Christmas tradition for many Americas -- indulging in Chinese food.
