Everything Ezzy is 17-year-old artist, Ezzy’s, sophomore project. Prior to this project, he released It’s Ezzy on April 20th, 2012. Since then, throughout these two years, Ezzy has grown, not only as an artist, but as a person overall. Everything Ezzy is no more than an audio diary written and recorded by a teenage kid growing up in an environment full of racism, classism, and materialism. It simply expresses his struggle against the desire to do what’s wrong and his knowledge of the importance of doing what’s right.
Ezzy shows his versatility as an artist throughout this project by killing various different kinds of beats and melodies. For example, he makes a statement right from the get go with his first track, “Wake Up” that has a heavy bass with a rock theme. His second track “Bin Stylin” was the first single off of Everything Ezzy which appeared on the popular mixtape BIFC 3. His second single off the tape “Bet That” was featured on #TheCosign as one of the best twelve songs in the city of Cleveland. I highly recommend listening to the entire album, and when you do, you will find out the most important thing to Ezzy in his life is his family.
“This kid prophesied his future”
4/20/14 is already a pretty loaded day on the calendar with Easter, National Pot Smokers Day, and the beginning of the NBA Playoffs but Ezzy is choosing to makes the day important for his own reasons. After much anticipation, Ezzy will release Everything Ezzy! later this month and announces it below. Check out the visuals and be sure to check with us on 4/20 for a stream of Everything Ezzy.
Terence J of Cleveland’s own Z 107.9 sits down with Ezzy for an exclusive interview with Humble Heroz. Ezzy took the time to discuss his show at Kent this weekend, as well his upcoming release which is titled Everything Ezzy. Be sure to stay on the look out for more stuff coming from Ezzy very soon!
Last night I stopped by the listening party for Ezzy‘s upcoming project “Everything Ezzy” which took place at Focused Tattoo in downtown Cleveland. By the time the event got started it was a full house of Ezzy’s supporters which ranged from all ages of family and fans. Ezzy wasted no time as he addressed the crowd letting them know how appreciative he was that everyone came out. Throughout the night the young rapper played all the tracks that are currently set to appear on the mixtape. In between songs he spoke his mind on certain issues such as George Zimmerman, the importance of life, and his relationship with God. Also previewed at the listening party was one of Ezzy’s upcoming music videos which he said was more like a short film that contrasts the difference between a rich kid and a poor kid.
Ezzy wasn’t alone on the stage all night. While previewing his already released track “Fly,” Ezzy invited the young fellow Cleveland artist Alex Angleo to share the stage so the crowd could put a face to the voice singing the hook. Booby also made his way in front of the crowd, as he is featured on one of the mixtape tracks along with local singer Sean McGee. That track was personally one of my favorites I heard during the event, so I suggest keeping an eye out for it. The last, but certainly not the least of the guests that Ezzy had make an appearance on stage with him was his mom. It was at that moment he performed a heartfelt song full of confessions letting his listeners know that he is only human like the rest of us.
I’m looking forward to the official release of “Everything Ezzy.” The Cleveland rapper seems to have found his sound with this tape (including the use of autotune, which most rappers can’t pull off, but Ezzy definitely does).
