After a solid run of singles and guest appearances, Stones Throw affiliate and Oxnard representative Kazi finally comes through with his debut full-length, joining forces with European label B9000. Produced primarily by Oh No (Kankick contributes one joint), The Plague overflows with swiftly paced wordplay and thumping, weed-friendly beats. “Check It Out Remix” is a highlight, with its backwards loops, clapping drums, ample tambourine shakes, and strong Wildchild cameo, as is “Sick With The Art,” a collabo featuring hometown homies Medaphoar and Declaime. While far from classic, this will definitely appeal to fans of the Cali indie-rap scene.
