Hip-Hop Trio Planet Giza officially shared their sophomore album Ready When You Are, on April 7, 2023. The 12-track LP will feature a range of hip-hop and R&B stars, including Kaytranada, Mick Jenkins, Kojey Radical, Saba, Venna & Topaz Jones Alongside the album, the trio released an accompanying music visual to their lead song ‘Quiet On The Set,” co-directed by Will Abu and Dovi.
“QOTS is a song we’re proud of because it sounds like nothing we’ve ever made before. But it still has all the elements of a Planet Giza song (the bounce, chords, harmonies, good raps),” they expressed. “Essentially it talks about the great lengths a man will go through to ensure the well-being of the person he cares about. The production was so stellar it pushed Tony to match that same magic vocally.”
Throughout the entire project, the trio touches on various themes like fame and relationships, once again narrating the experience of Tony Stone, as he traverses through the hectic & hedonistic life of a rising rap star. The group is composed of members Rami B, DoomX, and Tony Stone. The crew reflects their multicultural backgrounds through a collection of diverse sounds.
“Our process is usually us just throwing ideas at each other and working on whatever we like the most. We all dabble a little on the keys but we’re no professionals. We sometimes work with talented musicians to materialize our ideas (one of them being a frequent collaborator and friend JMF),” they acknowledged. “Tony is the sole vocalist, but Rami and Doom will sometimes add an adlib here and there. However, even in the recording process, everyone will throw ideas and themes to make sure we create the best song possible.”
Ready When You Are, is now available on all streaming platforms.
