L-Mizzy talks Hip Hop and new video “Right Now” with Jason Bourne

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.

Interview | Legendary Tazmania Talks New Music, Hip Hop Icons, & What’s Next @sizzlejimi

Legendary Tazmania has been deep rooted in the music scene dating back to his teenage years. He can recall the late legend Easy-E bringing him to his very first concert which of MC Breed and DJ Quick.  Born and raised on the south side of Chicago, he was up rooted at age thirteen to Los Angeles where music forever changed his life. He signed his first record deal in 1992 and released hit after hit. As he enhanced his craft and progressed in his career, he had the opportunity to tour the globe with major artists Mike Jones, Beat Nuts, Dilated Peoples, Eve, and more. To date he holds a lengthy catalog of music and hasn’t stopped yet.

” I believe in the words that Guru once told me, “keep spitting because you are what they need”

MJ: Thank you for taking time away from creating music for this interview. Let’s take it back to your younger years.  Do you think your career would have taken a different direction if you and your family didn’t move to Los Angeles?

Taz: Thank you for having me, and yes, it definitely would have been different.  I wouldn’t have met the people that actually made me love Hip-Hop like Skoolz, who let me have my first speaking role on a song.  Also Yomo and Markel who are Ruthless Records artists and their album “Burn Old Glory”, and I can’t leave out my relationship with the Bell’s of New Edition or how the Kinky Boys helped me to be original in my approach when it comes to creating music.

MJ: Talk about that concert that Easy-E took you to. As a young by that must have been an adrenaline rush to experience.

Taz:  It was I was on top of the world! To see everything up close was life changing, even though DJ Quick thought we were Crips because we were in blue…but Eazy smoothed it over.

MJ: In 1992 you released your first project “Come Say Hi to The Bad Guy”.  It can be mind-blowing to look back at your very first single or project. What would you say to that young Taz?

Taz: I would say don’t be so full of yourself, work hard and party later.

MJ:  From that you started your own rap group and label, which became a staple for Cali Hip Hop, and opened up some major doors for you. Share some of that with us.

Taz: Yeah being part of a group was cool it give me a chance to see other point of views and to remain humble in the face of so many egos. It also gave me the opportunity to meet a wide range of artists such as Outcast, Luda, and others. It gives you a sense of professionalism you need to have to live up to.

MJ: You’ve shared the stage with a handful of major artists and key players in the industry.  What stands out the most from those experiences?

Taz: I would say my chance meeting with Jay-Z in Stockholm along with Mr. Hayes, may he rest in peace, he was like a mentor for a short time. Meeting Warren G and his uncle Ron G was also life changing when they saw me perform overseas and let me know I had worth in the music scene.

 MJ: Let’s bring fans up to speed now. You’ve released a lengthy catalog of music throughout recent years.  Talk about your style and flow and how as an artist you have progressed and evolved from each project.

Taz: I have always looked at this business as an ever-changing one, and as an artist you must evolve with the times.  My flow is one of a kind, and smoothed out with a conscious realism.  I am a product of my environment with a world-wide sense of my people and the habitat we live.  But sometimes I like to make light of those differences.

MJ: What’s hot right now with Taz? Talk about your latest single “Flash Flood”. Also give us some inside scoop on upcoming projects or collaborations.

Taz: Yeah it’s coming out later this month.  It was produced by Synthetic, who made a fire track about getting rich quick dreams we all have at some point. The rest you will have to wait until it’s released, can’t give it all away…My latest single “Vinus” is the sh*t! It’s a shout out to all women of the world and how in their grace and beauty have made me feel that there’s always an unspoken meaning to someone special.

MJ: When it comes to influences, whether it be musically or personally, who do you credit?

Taz: Wow that’s a hard one.  I actually try to stay away from anyone else’s style, but some think I’m similar to T.I. But I think there is no other to credit for my style.

MJ: As we wrap up is there anything else you want the world to know about Taz?

Taz: Yeah, no one will give a better live performance than Taz. Be on the lookout for my new album “Paper Cuts”, I promise I will do everything in my power to make it groundbreaking for my fans!

Hip Hop

Who are some of your roll models when it comes to getting your foot in the music industry?

Sir Lucian Charles Grainge Lauryn Hill, KRS-One, Maya Angelou, Rakim, and Early Tupac.

How long have you been doing music?

I’ve been doing music for 16 years. It’s been my outlet and oxygen since age 12.

How did you come up with the name of your first single?

The idea for my first single came about in the most authentic form, I am THE POET and poetry is my DNA so the single COMPOSITION BOOK is THE POET sharing her pain to the mass. Completely vulnerability displayed in that record.

Now after a long struggle of getting exposure, how do you feel?

I feel like I have more work to do, like THE POET hasn’t made a difference yet.

Word?!? So it can be said that you have a great performance when your doing a show?

Great performance is a understatement. All show dates will be posted via twitter: @Tayanathepoet via instagram: @voiceofthepoet

When is your next single dropping?

My next single Pyramid will be dropping July 04, 2018

What would be the name of your next single or album and why?

The name of my next album is going to be called Rebellion, because I’m going to completely rebel against the metaphorical side of THE POET.

How did you come up with that name for the single?

History is in the name Pyramid, and I wanted to do something totally different from my other music, just to expose a little bit of my consciousness rap abilities.

How long have you been in the music business?

I’ve been in the music business about 5yrs to date. I was more focused on learning the business aspect of the music.

You can find my music in all digital music stores such as, Tidal, Spotify, Apple Music, Rhadospy, and etc.

If you could do a collabo with any artist who would it be and why?

Most definitely would love to collaborate with Lauryn Hill, KRS-One, Rakim, Loaded Lux, Kendrick Lamar, J.cole, outside of me loving their music theory, all of these artist have one thing in common; Which is the ability to pore out intellect, spiritual, emotional, political, and physical consciousness in their music, and make it relatable.

What is your opinion when it comes to hip-hop and politics?

I really don’t have an opinion about politics in hip hop, as far as HipHop in general it shapes culture rather it leaves a Mark or Scar is clearly up to the Artist.

I have been surrounded by music since I was born… it runs on both sides from singers to musicians it hit me very early
Who was some of your role models while coming up in the music industry?Coming up I was exposed to a guy that I will never forget,  he was one of the Head Choir Directors at my church his name was Ricky Linton… his vocals were Ridiculous I mean perfect pitch when he was going over different parts …even when he whistled it was perfect as well,  if I’m not mistaking he worked with Aretha Franklin early on when he was younger,  they’re runs and riffs vocally were very similar.  One of my last conversations I had with him was that I asked him to train me,  He told me yes and I was so excited,  I promised I was going to be a sponge… soaking up all the his techniques.  I shortly found out he was sick,  not to long after he passed and we never got a chance to work together but he was definitely a true role model for me coming up …someone I will never forget!
What made you decide to get in your genre of music?

I have roots in Church and it will always be my foundation…

Pop/R&B/Hip Hop and Country is what I connected to when I started my pursuit… So I wanted to leave an Imprint of my own expressing myself through these Genre’s

What’s the name of your first single?

Hip Hop like every Genre is always evolving and I personally feel that the balance of what is happening with today styles and the foundation that was laid in the very beginning will come together and create the future of the Genre

If you could do a collabo with any artist who would it be and why?

Brandy,  Beyonce,  Drake,  Kanye,  Taylor Swift to name a few.  The bodies of work these artist’s have laid is Unprecedented,  they all have took risks expressing themselves and I fill that our chemistry will compliment each other to the fullest so I hope in the near future I will be able to work with all of them at some point.

So how does it  feel to get your music out to the masses?

Truly it is a dream come true… or I should say My Dream meeting my Reality and My Reality meeting my Destiny

I am Truly Overwhelmed with just knowing I have the opportunity to present my visions,  my perceptions,  my idea’s musically to the world.

Tell us a little bit about your self?

I have a Strong Spiritual background…I’ve always had a love for Art in the form of Creating.  I highly respect and have a love for acting… there is nothing like being captured by a moment for those few seconds taking you hostage (Action/Adventure and Sci-fi, and of course Comedy).

I’m laid back but I can be very spontaneous… I wouldn’t call myself a comedian but I have made a lot of people laugh… I am Very Determined,  Disciplined,  strong willed,  I’m not afraid to take a risk for what I believe in.  Basketball is my first choice when it comes to sports… My Jump shot is Crazy… No Rim is safe!

I have done a lot of Jobs but all Roads have led back to Music… its who I am.
