Band Review: Drezus

Drezus is a hip hop artist from Saskatoon, currently based in Calgary. He was also mentioned in the Tom Barnes Mic article, specifically for "Warpath".

He lists influences like Wu Tang Clan and Tupac, which can be heard, but also lists several R&B influences like Al Green and Marvin Gaye. Their influence can be heard as well.

"Me & U" and "All I Can Be" display some funk undertones, while "Nehiyaw Girl" and "Rose" giving more of an idea of the getting down aspects.

Overall it still feels very much within the realm of hip hop, especially based on its social consciousness. "Warpath" is a good example of this, but I especially responded to "Get Up" and "Red Winter".
