Illa J, T3 and Young RJ (who also produced the joint) bless their fans with "No Mas": “driven by a infectiously smooth set of strings that gets backed up by some subtle, mellowed out drums that the fellas savagely attack with their skills. In their typical lyrical, gritty form the fellas hit the beat running and speak about their skills, streets, and much more in the time that the track takes up."

1. to stun or stupefy, by a blow or shock 2. to bewilder, amaze, or dazzle a state of stunned confusion or shock (esp in the phrase in a daze) Daze has been regarded as one of the most talented lyrical Mc's in the Bronx. It was only until 1999 when Daze decided to take his career seriously and began recording for the public. Prior to that he kept to himself and expressed his inner most thoughts through the use of a pen , a pad and an instrumental CD. He outlines this experience on the Intro of his freshmen album According 2 Me.
"99 I decided to rhyme - I took all of my time - to express every feeling i was hiding inside - with honor and pride a Puerto Rican opened his eyes - Realized he can speak to the world right through the mic". Daze lyrics are loaded with emotion , tension and harsh experiences. He learned how to package it all up and explode on the Hip Hip scene as a strong unbreakable force. Aside from all this he is a great businessman and entrepreneur. Daze's (G.S.D WORLDWIDE ENT) features some of the rawest talent from all different boroughs of New York. In his own words , GET.SHIT.DONE was about building a solid network of peers who evolved into a company G.S.D Worldwide Entertainment.
