Introduction
In an age where lyrical content and stage presence have become obsolete, Azariah has separated himself from the norm. 
Perfecting his craft for the better part of 8 years, Azariah (Born Darius Franklin) has made himself a staple in the Rochester, NY hip hop scene and has his eyes set on expanding his product globally. An artist’s professional growth is as important as any other attribute, and over the years Azariah has continued to move forward, while his peers have stood still. Putting out a slew of mixtapes and LPs, Azariah continues to impress his peers while proving critics that he has what it takes to make it into the saturated hip hop scene. 
His approachable demeanor and respected grind alongside his natural ability to perfect his craft has made Azariah one of the most respected wordsmiths in the area. Featured in several newspapers and magazines across the NY area, Azariah continues to turn heads every time he touches the microphone.
Azariah continues to keep his sword sharp by challenging himself to rejuvenate the hip hop scene. His most recent release, “Subject to Change” was critically acclaimed. Dealing with the current state of Hip Hop, family struggles, and social consciousness, the 16 Track LP became relatable to his fans and peers. 
"Intermission" Azariah latest mixtape hit shelves mid Feb of 2011 it receive good reviews and has done well with online sales.  Azariah teamed up with fellow Rochester based rapper Tragic aka Da Young Prophet to form the duo Playmakaz.  The duo release there debut "Up and Coming" online via datpiff, bandcamp, and tunecore.  Playmakaz will be releasing the physical copies of "Up and Coming" late this year (2012).
Whether a casual listener, or a devoted hip hop head you can lose yourself in Azariah’s music time and time again. With a work ethic that matches his talent, keep an eye out for Azariah in the months to come.
