Throwback Thursday: The Kaze’s “Felt the Pain”

Posted By on Thu, Oct 2, 2014 at 5:51 AM


In 1998, Memphis rap veterans Project Pat, M.C. Mack and Scan Man fused their diverse styles to create an impressive album: Kamikazie Timez Up.

Collectively known as The Kaze, the three artists released the album on D.J. Paul and Juicy J’s Prophet Entertainment label. Kamikazie Timez Up would turn out to be the only project the trio recorded together. After its release, M.C. Mack and Scan Man launched their KamiKaze imprint and severed ties with Prophet Entertainment.

Kamikazie Timez Up featured Paul and Juicy's signature bass-ridden production as well as content centered on illicit activity. But the chemistry that Project Pat, M.C. Mack and Scan Man shared on tracks made the album refreshing to listen to. And you can hear the hunger in their voices, especially Project Pat's, who joined the group subsequent to being released from jail.

One of my favorite tracks off Kamikazie Timez Up is “Felt the Pain," which boasts a sample of Willie Hutch's "Mother's Theme (Mama)." Check it out below.
