Krooked Treez “Rise” Background:
Krooked Treez have been honing in on their sound inside their own recording studio gearing up for the release of their sophomore album, Born Calizeans, due out early 2018. The group has been described as a Cypress Hill meets Collie Buddz or what I personally hear as something close to what was celebrated with Damian Marley & Nas in Distant Relatives.
The group has released 3 singles from the upcoming album with “Militant Soldier” that features Karim Israel of Arise Roots, Sen Dog of Cypress Hill and Sid Wilson of Slipknot. Sid Wilson returns as a guest for the second released single, “Dr. Kevorkian,” as the group is also rumored to have guest appearances on other tracks by Steven Adler of Guns N Roses, Moi of Tomorrows Bad Seeds and the female artist Brevi, who is a standout on collabs with 50 Cent. More may be announced soon as more music is continuing to be finalized inside their studio.
With the latest single, “Rise,” the track was produced by Brian Vasquez and Krooked Treez vocalist BZ Bwai tells The Pier: “Its about opening your eyes from all the crazy things that’s happening in this world and rise above it all. Make a change. It’s for all the people struggling out there that need that extra push and motivation.”
While it’s too early too tell just how many songs will be on the upcoming Born Calizeans record, we do know that the group has plans to release 4 more singles with each one accompanied by a music video and they’re flying to Belize to shoot these videos. Brevi will be featured on 3 of the tracks and Moi of TBS will be featured on one.
Vocalist, O.Brown tells The Pier: “Bz Bwai and I are excited to go back to our roots in Belize. The name Krooked Treez comes from a small town in Belize called Crooked Tree where my great grandfather is from, the late Ivan Tillet. So we are flying to Belize in December to shoot more videos in the Great Blue Hole, San Pedro Island, Crooked Tree, Belize city, Mayan Ruins and Jungles. We are excited to bring director Sami Ansari who shot ‘So In Love with CA.'”

Krooked Treez Background:
Krooked Treez is a Southern, CA based Reggae Hip Hop group who released their first album Higher Place in 2013. The band is comprised of the B-Real produced and mentored Belizean emcee O.Brown, who performed with Cypress Hill for many years as their protégé, joining the band on many festivals, along with Belizian born and raised BZ Bwai, who brings his catchy riddims and international flavor to the scene. Together, the two create magic, with O.Brown’s hard knock life party-rocking lyricism and BZ Bwai’s harmonic soulful and smooth vocals. Guitarist and California original Bobby Zen is on bass; along with guitarist extraordinaire Josh Stoney Eye, who tighten the band with their rich sounds that are boasted with years of experience amongst its members.
