    Thank you for returning to. Today we join LaSuria Kandi Allman as she chats with Detroit Hip Hop artist, Burt Blaze.

    My name is Cal (Burt Blaze)
    Burt Blaze is my dark half. The persona most would associate as their "evil twin". Heavily influenced by Detroit's own Psychopathic Records &Majik Ninja Entertainment, I am looking to leave my mark in the underground aggressive rap scene.

     I have been at this since I was a child. Spending my weekends doing open mics &freestyle battles. I have always recorded and produced myself. In 2016 I will have 2 releases available at burtblaze.bandcamp.com

    The first being my Mixtape "Wildfires" and the second being a live recording of the NYE show I'm playing for Detroit Rock City Promotions at 7 Feet Under Studios in Marlette, MI.


     I am currently a member of a duo called Sik Mindz, we should also have a release next year. I am currently looking to up with promoters, managers, producers, etc... I am very serious about making this a full time gig and want to build a team of dedicated individuals so that we may all come up together.

    Included are my two songs: "Dying Is Not An Option" & "Vultures" as well as some images including my logo and the artwork for the Wildfires Mixtape.
    I can be reached on Twitter @burtblaze or by phone 586-337-1219
