    C-Rayz Walz

    Last Definitive Jux release: Year of the Beast Year released: 2005

    As a fixture of New York's underground hip-hop scene, C-Rayz Walz built a name for himself in the early 2000s on the strength of his imaginative lyrics and impressive, stream of consciousness freestyles. After collaborating with the Definitive Jux crew for a few years, Walz officially joined the label for 2003's Ravipops (The Substance). After three albums in three years, Walz left Jux to pursue releasing his music through a variety of other independent labels, as well as via self-distribution. In 2012, he joined Cannibal Ox for the east coast leg of their reunion tour. He continues to release music with regularity via his Bandcamp page.
