Straight outta the middle income ghettos of south central Edmonton, AB, the Kemo Treats are back from the future and ready to rock audiences across time and space. G-Wizard and Smoovie II Smoov are here to define the satirical-rap genre with their unique blend of clever, humorous rhymes flowing over smooth west coast synths and beats. Time travel, pinky swearing, campin’ & ice cream are just a few of the hot topics on Eleazar Records third release “Straight Gold.” Hell! G-Wizard’s chronic smokin’ grandmother even makes an appearance! Glaucoma is a bitch…
After two years in production, the debut album “Straight Gold” features 12 gut busting songs ranging from in your face satire to playful self mockery and straight up word-smithery. Working out of Danja Zone studios, Edmonton based producer Eleazar has created a dynamic soundscape that plays like a history of hip hop, adding elements that anyone familiar with the genre will recognize.
Combining magic tricks, flamboyant costumes and sing-a-long-ability rarely found in hip hop, the Kemo Treats put on a show that can dominate the night in any music venue or comedy club. Through their Youtube based TV show Smoovie & The Wiz, they coined the term “It’s Gooowld!” which has caught fire in Edmonton and on the planet Zeptune 7.
