kz Underground Experience 7 27 015

Mistajay: What is the story and conception behind your emcee name?

KZ: My Emcee name at age 11started off as King of Swing. But years later after the rapgroup Kings of Swing came out in the early 90s. I then changed it too k-oz(chaos). Then finally in 7th grade I was known as a class clown so everyone was calling me crazy(meaning silly). So I decided to change it to KZ and kept it that way ever since.

Mistajay: What area are you reppin? What is the hip hop scene like there?

KZ: 850 Pensacola Florida allday everyday. What is the hip hop scene like there? The music scene here is kinda divided. Everyone wants to be the first to say they made it successfully musically. Instead of working together to build a strong movement and put on that way. There’s a alot of talent here but it lacks unity in my opinion.

Mistajay: Your bio says you became very fascinated with music at a very young age. . and you wanted to become a legend like 2pac ,B.I.G. Jay-Z,RUN DMC,BIG L,BIG PUN and so many other
hip hop greats.What are your influences of your music? And what inspires you?

KZ: A legend like 2pac, B.I.G., Jay-Z, RUN DMC, BIG L, BIG PUN and so many other
hip hop greats. What are your influences of your music? Although my influences started as those great emcees I named. As I got older I realized my influences are underground artists just like me. Who keep grinding non-stop in hopes of one day reaching the masses through music and entertainment. And what inspires you? Before my kids were born. My inspiration always came from my heart. That’s where I always wanted my thought process of creating music to start from. Something expressed from the heart can inspire millions.

Mistajay: How do you describe your style?

KZ: I would describe my style as like a UFO. Meaning its explained and very seldom witnessed but it definitely exist and it’s out of this world.

Mistajay: WOLF ENTERTAINMENT of SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA was helping KZ with the digital
distribution of our hit single “FACEBOOK WORLD also your other single left over 4000 youth in
tears while performing “FLY AWAY” so What is your best song recorded to date and why?

KZ: This one for that reason

Mistajay: You have been in The Down Magazine as the best performer in the
area. Also included in The Source Magazine. Who stated “His Lyrics Are Clearly Ready For Mainstream” written by the editor himself after watching you perform. Kz will also be featured in January edition of hostile magazine out of BARSTOW CALIFORNIA. As well as DREAM BIG GRIND HARD MAGAZINES February edition with THE REAL RICK ROSS on the cover page. And this magazine is out of PARIS, FRANCE.UP AND DOWN MAGAZINE, MAKING IT BIG MAGAZINE THE PINK EDITION, BLACK STEEL MAGAZINE, ZHE MAGAZINE, UNSIGNED MAGAZINE, INDIE ART MAGAZINE….How do think this had improved you visibility and what advice do you have for other artists on getting magazine coverage?

KZ: Perception is the greatest marketing tool an artist can use to build their brand. The more people see you. The more curious they will become on who you are and what you represent. So using these magazines creates a buzz of awareness. Which introduces you to the masses without you physically being there. And the more magazines your featured in or on. The more awareness people have of your brand.

Mistajay: You have opened up for dozens of mainstream artists. Such as, BLOODRAW,YOUNG JEEZY,YOUNG DRO,LIL BOOSIE,GUCCI MANE,PASTOR TROY,FRANCHISE BOYZ,RICHBOY,JUVENILE,TRINA, Z-RO If you could share the stage with any other 3 artists or bands who are still around and touring, who would they be and why?

KZ: Kendrick Lamar, Jay Z and Eminem. I chose these 3 because I love and respect the creativity they display on stage. It’s not about just rapping to your own music and jumping around. But to have a stage setting which leads into a great performance. Now don’t get me wrong. There are many other great performers and entertainers out there now. But these are 3 of my preference you feel me.

Mistajay: A lot of artists come into the game with a lot of ambition but don’t spend time learning the business side. How important to you is learning about publishing and royalties?

KZ: Artist must know and understand why it’s called the Music Business. Because that’s just what it is, A Business. And like any other business its sole purpose is to gain revenue. So in order for you to gain revenue or in other words make money. You must research on publishing and royalties. Or you can easily get screwed like so many other artists have in the past and present. Please do not allow your hard work to be short changed. Because you didn’t take the time to learn the business side of music as well as the art of music.

Mistajay: Where do you see the hip hop going in 2015? How do you see yourself fitting into that?

KZ: I don’t necessarily see it dying out completely. But I do see the numbers of sales dropping tremendously due to the content that’s being pushed now. Hip-Hop is being made one sided nowadays. And without diversity of style, lyrics, sound or production. People nowadays feel like they are hearing the something from each and every artist. Which in my opinion is not good. Because more mainstream artists are not going platinum or reaching gold status. Due to people not supporting the music their putting out like they should.  How do you see yourself fitting into that? All I can do is give the people something different than the cookie cutter design all the other artists are following. Trust me, In a fish tank full of goldfish. It’s hard not to notice another fish of a different kind. Ya know?

Mistajay: What are your future plans?

KZ: My future plans will be to somehow be the new voice of Hip-Hop. To reintroduce the heart, soul, meaning and lyrics that the culture once had. I’m not here to change the game. But here only to remind people how embracing, entertaining and profitable hip-hop was when it was done this way. And not how it is being done today. Where lyrics are the forefront. As opposed to a catchy beat or hook only.

Mistajay: Any last thoughts?

KZ: Remember music is a form of art and expression of ones own inner creativity. Don’t just write what rhymes on a piece of paper, record it and call it music. See it with your heart first. Then interpret those feelings into words. Creating concepts and lyrics that makes sense. Good Luck and hopefully I see you all at the top.

Mistajay: Where can fans follow you and get your music?

R.I.P. Bobbi Kristina Brown

Bobbi Kristina Brown (March 4, 1993 – July 26, 2015) was an American reality television and media personality, singer, and heiress. She was the daughter of singers Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston, and her parents’ fame kept Bobbi Kristina in the public eye, including her appearances on the reality show Being Bobby Brown. Brown was 14 when her parents divorced and Houston gained custody.[1] When Houston died in February 2012, Brown was named as the sole beneficiary of her mother’s estate.

That October, Brown caused controversy within both of her parents’ families when she announced her engagement to Nick Gordon, a man she previously considered her “big brother”. When the couple announced they were married, Bobby Brown’s lawyer released a statement disputing the report.

Bobbi Kristina Brown was found unresponsive in a bathtub on January 31, 2015; she was kept in a medically induced coma for approximately six months. She died on July 26, 2015, at age 22.

This a very tragic end to an already sad story at least the one thing we can take away from his is that she now rests in her mothers arms…….Mistajay
