"Off Air" Big Teeze Big Teeze always merits respect for being one of the very few local artists of any genre who has had a release make any of the six major Billboard charts. Teeze did it back in 1998, and with "Off Air," he reaffirms his place as one of Hawaii's all-time top hip-hop artists. Imagination and honesty are key ingredients to his sound. While Teeze plays the romantic on some tracks and a hardcore "dogg" on others, he also puts out the message that a hard-knock childhood is no excuse for failure as an adult. "Walk Tall" teaches that a positive attitude in life is an important foundation for success. With "Dirty Waianae," he encourages his neighbors to take pride being from the Leeward area. An unaccredited interpolation of Cecilio & Kapono's "Lifetime Party" is the melodic hook on Teeze's "Island Lady." There is a uniquely humorous take on "Inseparable," and "Da Yard" adds a touch of Hawaiiana.
