KILLA BEATZ
STAY STRONG
SELF-RELEASED

Killa Beatz is a mashed-up quartet from NYC whose upbeat rap-rock leanings put them somewhere in between The Black Eyed Peas and POD. On this urban unit's 12-track disc, the band's hybrid sound fluctuates between teenybopper anthems ("Another Piece") to hard-edged hip-hop rockers ("Scorpion", "Stay Strong") without any hesitation. Catchy yet sounding a bit out of touch at times, Killa Beatz comes through with a somewhat Brit-pop sensibility on cuts like "Pressure Cookin" and "Through the Dawn", giving this band a well-rounded yet sometimes dated stance that fans of Beastie Boys, Kid Rock, and Limp Bizkit are sure to fawn over.
