GET TO KNOW: Jay Bizzy
Having already churned out a wealth of passionate outings so far this year, London-based rapper Jay Bizzy isn't slowing down yet as he drops his vibrant new effort 'Interlude'.
With his smooth and passionate flow layered across a pulsing production from start to finish, 'Interlude' sees him continue that innovative direction he has already earned a strong reputation for. Channelling a progressive aesthetic at every turn, he is definitely one to keep a firm eye on for the months ahead as well.
So with the new track available to stream now, we sat down with him to find out more about his origins and influences over the years.
What was the first band or artist you fell in love with?
Chris Brown, I remember the first song of his I fell in love with was With You, I used to hear my older cousins play it round their house then they just started playing me more Chris Brown.
Did you ever form a band when you were younger and if so, what did they sound like?
In Primary school me and my friends made a trio called JGS and we used to perform JLS covers in school assemblies or talent shows.
What has been your primary inspiration in writing music?
Probably just the struggles and dreams of myself and my people and just putting it to lyrics.
What is a song you wish you had written yourself?
Probably ‘Nobody Gets Me’ by SZA, I’ve been rocking with that right now. The song is musical genius.
If there was any moment in your career you could relive, what would it be?
The first time I got approached, I was at a megachurch on NYE and had these bunch of kids run at me asking for pictures. It was a surreal moment.
Which artist would you most love to share a stage with?
Right now I’d love to perform live with Ed Sheeran, I just think our raw musicianship would complement each other on stage whichever Instrument we choose to play and us both being British.
And is there an artist you would love to collaborate with as well?
I’d love to collab with Rod Wave, I think we have a similar Sung/Rap tone that would complement each other.
Where do you see yourself in five years time?
