Tasha The Amazon has gone all guns blazing on this one. Despite hailing from Toronto, where fellow “6” musicians get up in their feels over reverb-heavy beats, Tasha The Amazon is total dynamite on “Watch It Burn.” The explosive track was produced by Tasha and her production partner Danthrax, with the German-Jamaican rapper mercilessly unleashing a slew of designer brand-scorning bars amidst napalm-burning flamethrowers and her mob of cronies in the high-octane visuals above. Think Kanye West at the Brits 2015, but way more turnt up.
Much like some of the grime MC’s who joined Kanye in that video, Tasha doesn’t give a fuck about designer imprints, “I love style, but I’ve always found more power in not giving a fuck about brands or labels. This video has that real power: Just me and my mob… and some explosions.” “Watch It Burn” is taken from her EP Die Every Day which recently earned a nomination for Rap Recording of the Year at Canada’s biggest music award show, the Juno Awards. She was placed alongside massive names such Drake, Tory Lanez, Belly, and Jazz Cartier for the award. And with such esteemed company, Tasha is definitely one to watch.
