Album Of The Day: Checkmate by MZ Genesiz

Mz Genesiz, a new player in the female rap game, dropped a dope album titled Checkmate, a house for 10 fiery joints. Mz Genesiz truly produces great music, and with her new LP, she redefines the often male-dominated industry.

On her outstanding and grief-stricken debut album, Mz Genesiz pays tribute to her past and to the future she wants to achieve. As she digs further into the fragmented memories of her experiences, she is ready to risk it all for her career and follow her dreams, as she raps on the track “Big Dreams.” Her verses describe how she left her job, and how she is not going back, as she is here to chase her destiny. 

The beats she uses on the album are all very balanced, and present her interest with heavier sounds blended  with synths, and filtered through lo-fi lens. The combination can be both mesmerizing and misleading – Mz Genesiz uses special effects to soften the pitch of her voice, so that the audience sinks into melodies and gets lost in her story. 

 Mz Genesiz delivered a great debut album, where confidence seeps through in her artistic growth. We are hungry for more! 


Providing a much needed departure from the hyper-sexualized world of female rap, Mz Genesiz is an artist aiming to set the bar high with her meaningful music and self help books. Being a savvy and relentless businesswoman, she wants to empower young women to do the same. To embrace their authenticity and chase their dreams no matter the obstacle.

Mz Genesiz has now released three new singles titled “Super Press”, “Shook” and “Checkmate”. Featuring her signature sound, witty bars and a hip-hop vibe with empowerment lyrics. Always working with her unique style, Mz Genesiz made a place for herself in the music industry with a message of self-love, self-respect and a drive to rise above adversity. Born and raised in North Philadelphia, Genesiz went to high school with rapper Meek Mill and Elementary School with Singer Jasmine Sullivan. Genesiz has performed for crowds of over 50,000 alongside note-able acts such as Ryan Leslie, Roscoe Dash & Soldier Boy.

A spokesperson for Mz Genesiz made an official press statement; “Mz Genesiz really is the new age Queen Latifah and Lauryn Hill. Her message is really important because she teaches young girls that they can be successful without exploiting their sexuality. A female rap artist of her caliber and her message, is what we desperately need in today’s world.”
