The Golden Coast has been privileged to acquire a commanding talent in emerging MC, The Seige – a.k.a. Taz Conley. The Midwest-native relocated to LA for a fresh start, shaking things up with his ear-catching signature blend of hip-hop. The Seige is inspired by politics and current events, with influences ranging from Kanye West to Alice Cooper to Rage Against The Machine, and strives to make people believe in hip-hop again by bringing something fresh to the table. Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump.
And people are taking notice – he’s had placements in film, TV, and advertisements, plus the opportunity to work with different musicians who helped push his genre-blending adventure. Today, The Seige has partnered with Uproxx’s Smoking Section to unveil the video for his latest single, “Natalie Portman,” featuring producer/DJ trio, Cheat Codes. The track masterfully melds juxtaposing genres crafting an anthemic rebellion song – but it’s The Seige’s lyrical flow over the driving Irish/Celtic guitar riff and pulsating drums that truly gives it something special. When asked about the inspiration behind the song Taz explained, “a message to everyone in the world that we don’t have to conform or do what is expected of us just because society says so. What you feel in your heart is always the right decision.”
