The Break Presents: Breezay
Standout: “50 Ways”
Also check out: “Where I’m From”
And:“Move N My Shoes”
Where I’m from: Baltimore, Maryland
I’ve been rapping since: My mama would probably tell you since the womb. But I’ve been really grinding since 2008. That was when my other options went out the window and I decided it was DO OR DIE for me. I ain’t look back since.
My style has been compared to: Wale, but I think people say that because we’re both from the DMV. But my influences are wide. I’ve studied and been influenced by Pac, Nas, Kanye, Jay, Andre 3000, TIP, Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Biggie, Jeezy, Snoop, Ross, DMX and Dr. Dre.
My standout moments have been: My #TURNTUPTUESDAYS series I had running online. Every Tuesday for six months I dropped freestyles over the hottest beats in the industry, and I attacked every one like my life depended on it. I’m locked in right now. Another standout moment was performing at AFRAM 2012 in my hometown. Thousands of people were out there. A lot of energy. And finally, my FLAGSHIP mixtape which drops 12.12.12. It’s a CLASSIC!
I’m gonna change the game by: Being different. Being something that the world hasn’t seen before. I’m from Baltimore for God sakes. Name one hot rapper from Baltimore that’s sold millions or toured the world? I’ll wait… I’m gonna change the game by being me. I’m gonna brand Breezay so hard you gonna wanna be Breezay when its all said and done.
I’d like to work with: J. Cole, Big KRIT, Kendrick Lamar, and Gunplay. I would love to do some stuff with Tribe Called Quest and De La Soul, if the rap gods allow.
My goal in hip-hop is: To give the hopeless hope. I’m gonna bring the struggle back. That same type of feeling you got when you heard X on “Get At Me Dog” or T.I. on “Be Easy”.
I’m gonna be the next: 2pac / Biggie
