Album Stream: Jay Fizzle “DonaFizzo Deluxe” 

Dropping gems of street wisdom with a drawly flow, Jay Fizzle is Memphis to the core. Expanding upon his recent project DonaFizzo, the Paper Route Empire artist shares DonaFizzo (Deluxe), adding 9 songs to the trap-happy album. Fizzle excels at finding unique pockets in each instrumental, stacking outlandish flexes in a torrent of tumbling syllables. Among the new songs on DonaFizzo (Deluxe) are “Major,” which combines a sample from his late mentor Young Dolph with the classic instrumental from Gucci Mane’s “Bricks,” and “Tello N Bart,” a collaboration with fellow PRE lifer Key Glock that plays upon each of their cartoon altar egos (the Ninja Turtle for Fizzle and the Simpson for Glock). Featuring towering instrumentals from the likes of Memphis mainstays like Ayoza, plus a standout guest spot from PaperRoute WooDonaFizzo (Deluxe) is available everywhere via Paper Route Empire.

The new deluxe edition of DonaFizzo is an embellishment of Fizzle’s most accomplished project to date. Backed by cavernous trap beats by the likes of Bandplay and Sosa 808, the tape reverberates with Fizzle’s desire to follow in Dolph’s footsteps and take over the Dirty South. From the arcade villain-esque “Nike Check,” to the Mission: Impossible-esque bounce of “50 Freaky B*tches” ft. 21 Lil Harold, to the furiously flex-heavy “Nothing Into Something,” DonaFizzo hits harder than a bo-staff from start to finish. The tape is home to singles like the Memphis posse cut “Dust Town Livin” ft. Big Scarr & Big Moochie Grape and “Standin On Top Of Sh*t,” a collaboration with Key Glock.

DonaFizzo (Deluxe) is the latest salvo in a busy year for Jay Fizzle and the rest of PRE. Fizzle kicked off the year with purpose, sharing “LLD,” a heartfelt tribute to his mentor Young Dolph. Adorned with lush harmonies and a star vocal turn from Ricco Barrino, “Long Live Dolph” finds Jay Fizzle baring his soul, the South Memphis native audibly emotional when he relays his gratitude to his mentor for teaching him everything he knows: “The way I talk, the way I walk, the way I act, the way I dress/The way I do my thing up in the booth, I learned it from the best.” With over 1.8 million views on YouTube, “LLD” is the opening track from Paper Route Empire Presents: Long Live Dolph, a compilation album from the independent label, which features appearances from nearly every artist on PRE, including Key GlockBig Moochie GrapeKenny Muney and more.
