Biloxi native now Portland-based artist, Q.Z. Tha Leader, has just released his video for his controversial record, "Blame Me." Blame Me is the lead single off Q.Z.'s 2016 project, Moments Of Genius Opus: II. This EP is a follow up to his 2014 release, Moments Of Genius Opus: I, which was produced by CoDa on The Track. Blame Me is a vocally powered anthem set against menacing horns with hostile 808 drums. This perilous environment sets the tone for Q.Z.'s gritty wordplay, bolstering double and triple entendres.
