B2K RAPPER LIL FIZZ SET TO RELEASE HIS SOLO DEBUT "PAYDAY"
FO' REEL ENTERTAINMENT DOING DIGITAL RELEASE OF CD

Los Angeles, CA...Hip-Hop and R&B superstar Lil Fizz of the multi-platinum group B2K is set to release his debut album PayDay on July 17th. The first album of an exclusive recording agreement with music industry veteran Cudda Love's Fo' Reel Entertainment, PayDay showcases Lil Fizz's far-reaching lyrical talents and features R&B crooner Ray J on the soon- to-be-Summer club banger "Beds." "Beds" is sure to be in heavy rotation on everybody's IPods for the Summer. "That's why I'm so excited and proud about this album. Now I can be me. I'm with people who give me freedom and creative control," states Fizz.

Another Summer anthem is "Car Wash," (not the 70's song) which Lil Fizz explains, "is about LA's car culture. On Friday and Saturday, it's a ritual for everyone to go and get their car washed and make it look sharp. It's like a party; it's crazy. The music is bumping, the cars are all shiny and everybody's flossin' on Slauson. "Car Wash" is for everybody, but it's gonna really make Cali happy."

Lil Fizz is 1/4 of the world-famous R&B boy band B2K. B2K released their self-titled (Double Platinum) album in 2002; it exploded and spawned the mega hits "Uh Huh," "Gots Ta Be," and "Why I Love You.” The group's next (and final) studio album Pandemonium! dropped late in 2002 and contained the #1 smash "Bump, Bump, Bump" featuring Diddy, as well as "Girlfriend," "Bump That," "Everything," and "What A Girl Wants." By 2004, B2K broke up and two of the members, Omarion and Lil Fizz, secured solo deals; yet because of label issues, Lil Fizz's Epic Records debut was put on hold. "I feel everything is learning process. All of the issues I had with my Epic deal prepared me mentally, physically and spiritually for this album," states Fizz.

Lil FizzFor three years rapper Lil Fizz was one third of B2K, one of the biggest boy bands of the last decade. By the time he was 19, he’d sold millions of cds, and toured the world. Yet even with all that Lil Fizz didn’t have a real outlet for what was in his heart and soul.

That outlet has arrived. The name of Lil Fizz’s highly anticipated solo debut is Pay Day. Working with hip hop vet, Cudda, who along with multi-platinum rapper Nelly head up Fo 'Reel Entertainment, Lil Fizz has made a cd that’s edgy, sexy, fly, and overflowing with much bounce to the ounce. It’s also a chance for this 22-year-old star to take it to the next level and show folks just what he’s got.

“I know that there’s a whole lot of people who might doubt me or think I’m not legit because they’ve never seen a rapper that came out of a boy band, “Lil Fizz says. “That’s why I’m so excited and proud about this cd. Because now I can be me- I’m with people who give me freedom and creative control.”

That confidence and freedom shows on Pay Day’s first single. Featuring Ray J “Beds” is a sexy, club ready; shout out to every playboy’s furniture of choice. Another song meant to rock the body is “Car Wash”, (Not the 70’s movie) which Lil Fizz explains, “is about LA’s car culture. On Friday or Saturday it’s a ritual for everyone to go and get their car washed and make it look sharp. It’s like a party; it’s crazy. The music is bumping, the cars are all shiny and everybody’s flossin on Slauson. “Carwash” is for everybody but it’s gonna really make Cali happy.”

Lil FizzBorn in Louisiana, Lil Fizz and his older sister grew up in Inglewood, California, raised by their mother of whom he says, “she’s so proud of me. She’s my #1 fan!” Like most kids Fizz loved rap. “When I was 8, I heard Kris Kross and because they were kids, I really liked them. My sister had their poster on her wall“, he laughs. Soon Fizz’s tastes got a bit more mature; he started listening to Jay- Z, Biggie and TuPac. “My sister is 7 years older and I’d go in her room and she had a shoe box filled with all those little tapes of hip-hop.”

Eventually Fizz would get to write his own rhymes. B2K dropped their self-titled cd in 2002; it exploded and spawned the hits "Uh Huh", "Gots Ta Be", and "Why I Love You". The groups next (and final) studio album) Pandemonium! came late in 2002 and contained the #1 smash “Bump, Bump, Bump”, as well as "Girlfriend", "Bump That", "Everything", and "What A Girl Wants”.

By 2004, B2K broke up and two of the members, Omarion and Lil Fizz secured solo deals; yet because of label issues, Fizz’s project was put on hold. In 2005, Lil Fizz connected with superstar rapper Nelly’s manager Cudda, who had expressed interest in working with him. They hit the studio, crafting close to a 100 songs, including “Fluid”. Co-written by Bryan Cox (Mary J Blige), Cudda and Fizz. “Fluid” was released to radio and aired on BET through Fizz’s existing Sony deal, but received little label support.

In 2007, Lil Fizz was free to do his thing; even using his break as the inspiration for “2 Years”, one of Pay Day’s more thoughtful cuts. “The song is definitely more serious and a way to let my fans know a little more about me as an artist. It talks about the struggle and what I was going through mentally during the time I was unable to bring my music to the fans.” For Lil Fizz the move from group to solo was natural. “It wasn’t that different because in B2K, I was always rapping, and started working on a solo record when I was 15. “

Asked what he wants his cd to show people and Lil Fizz replies, “That I can step out of what I was and be my own man. That I am more than what you might think. I hope this is a cd that people can really get into, and listen to for a long time. There’s a lot that everyone can relate to and party to but there’s also a lot of me in this cd. “
