An up and coming artist that promotes his music for now through indie platforms with his eyes on a big break. With the product to back up his aspirations, L-Mizzy is doing his diligence to become a household name in the industry. A writer in many variations, L-Mizzy has begun to craft short films and other forms of screenplay. Recently he received a role in a web series called “Let’s Go”, where he is able to tap into a new skill set he hasn’t explore much in the past. I sat down to kick it with L-Mizzy about his grind and plans for the New Year. Check out the interview below:
Jason Bourne: At what age did u start to practice writing down your thoughts and what prompted that action?
L-Mizzy: The spark came when I heard Slim Shady. I felt like if he can do it, I can do it. My big bro always told me I could rap he said it was in me. Hearing Em just sparked it.
Jason Bourne: Do u consider yourself a writer as a whole, or just a Hip Hop MC?
L-Mizzy: I consider myself both. I’ve been writing for some time. But, I will say I’m always working on becoming a better MC.
Jason Bourne: As a creative what are some of your goals outside of Hip Hop?
L-Mizzy: I have aspirations in different lanes from Fashion to Film, Real Estate and some other things that aim at creating opportunity.
Jason Bourne: For someone just getting in tuned, who is L-Mizzy?
L-Mizzy: A King, an inspiration, father, hustler, and comedian. I’m also a lover, a hero and at times I am the villain. Most of all I am God fearing and honest individual.
Jason Bourne: How much of an influence did Brownsville have on you as a child and a man today?
L-Mizzy: Growing up in Brownsville showed me the importance of standing on my own two feet. Taking care of business is gangster to me.
Jason Bourne: In your presser, you say that you want to make a change in the world – put that into words for us?
L-Mizzy: I just choose to be an inspiration and motivation rather than a hindrance to my people. I rather give game than run game. I’m here to open doors and be a leader. Most of all I want my people to win!
Jason Bourne: What does that look like in action?
L-Mizzy: Waking up motivated; never bending. Keeping faith, working hard and setting goals have been my formula.
Jason Bourne: Performance wise, what are some of the highlights in your career thus far?
L-Mizzy: Some of my career highlights would be the countless times I won competitions that got me to bigger shows and platforms. I also had the opportunity to throw my own show and give other local talent a chance to shine and showcase their skills.
Jason Bourne: One executive you wish you could meet today, why and what would u tell them?
L-Mizzy: I would love to meet Jay Z in the right setting. I want that Roc Nation situation. I’m sure they have the means to bring me to the next level.
Jason Bourne: Web series is a big thing in NYC right now. I see a lot of artists gravitate to it; do u think it has helped u as an artist?
L-Mizzy: Funny you say that I actually had a small role in the web series “Let’s Go.” I played a drug dealer named CJ. But as an artist I don’t think it really did much for me. Probably if I had a recurring role.
Jason Bourne: Your new single, Right Now, the video is getting good feedback. How was it working with Painfully Gifted Visuals?
L-Mizzy: We work well together. I bring my vision then we make it a movie.
Jason Bourne: What can we expect top of 2019 from L Mizzy?
L-Mizzy: A bunch of fire. I have new videos dropping and will be doing more shows and definitely knocking out more interviews. I’m wrapping up a project entitled “Throne Talk.” I will be dropping a single off of that real soon to hit push the button on this New Year and continue the momentum from “Right Now.” Also quiet as kept, there is a remix coming soon. I’m definitely making 2019 the year of the King; don’t sleep it gets better. I’m excited about 2019 and I’m sure my #Villains will be too.
