As the result of splitting his early years between Inglewood, California and Chicago, Illinois, Gino Haze was raised on both the gangsta funk of the West Coast and the chopper style of the Midwest. However, the young rhymer connected with producer C-Sick in college, and the two Hip Hop lovers set out to craft an original sound for Gino.
The result of that partnership was Gino’s debut project Confident. The 2012 album also featured production by Mike Free (Tyga’s “Rack City,” Big Sean’s “IDFWU”) and an appearance by Roc Nation’s Casey Veggies. Gino and Slick are currently back at work on the follow-up collection –Reality Replacin’.
The 23-year-old rapper set things off for Reality Replacin’ with the single “Feelin’ Like I’m Back.” After Haze dropped the cut last month, AllHipHop.com is now debuting the song’s smoke-filled, black-and white video. Gino handled the job of directing the visuals with Olivia Curry serving as editor.
