Valholla Entertainment continues its fight for dominance with a strong team of artists who are all poised to make their mark in the industry soon enough. To name a couple, there's R&B artist Kirby Maurier, and hip-hop artist Phatz (who we've featured a few times already). 

But now there's also Ramzez, who's a rough-spoken MC with just the right amount of aggression mixed with just the right amount of lyricism.

Ramzez, along with Valholla, released The Formula Volume 1 a while ago to much fanfare -- so much so that the long-awaited The Formula Volume 2 mixtape is now available. It's hosted and mixed by Nightbreederz / Shadyville / ThisIs50 affiliate DJ Young Cee.

The mixtape starts off with a classic Ice-T quote where he says that the music is "not supposed to be positive. This music is negative because the streets are negative." After a few more words from Ice-T, the mixtape kicks off to 23 tracks of Ramzez going in on a variety of original beats and already-existing instrumentals. 

Some of the producers that contributed original material include Darkwriterz, Dy Tha China Boi, DJ Lazy K, Kapitol, and CokChop. Guest features are rounded out by labelmate Kirby Maurier, along with other local favorites like Cee Tension, Murph, and Stide Prince.

Overall, it's a good mixtape. Even on the tracks that don't feature original production, Ramzez seems to have no problem making the beats sound like they were originally meant to be his, and he does so effortlessly. Check out what Ramzez and the Valholla family have been cooking up by downloading The Formula Volume 2 below.
