Love hurts

Featured artist: Frizzy Vazquez – Love hurts

As part of our ongoing “Rap’s New Generation” series, today we sat down with the upcoming underground artist Frizzy Vazquez from Brooklyn to talk about his recent music, his upcoming projects, his career advice and his overall experiences being in the music industry and he did not disappoint…

Thanks for taking the time to talk with us, Frizzy Vazquez! Let’s go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?

Frizzy Vazquez: I decided to become an artist at the age of 5. I fell in love with rap then because when I was a kid I would go to my neighborhood barber shop and everyone would battle each other. I joined them every now and then as a kid, and just knew it for me. I officially began releasing my music February 2018 on all platforms.

Always be yourself and never change your craft to please others.

What about concerts? Do you play live?

Yes I have performed live a few times. I have performed as an opener at two different concerts at American University. I have also opened up for Joyner Lucas, that video is on YouTube!

Best punchline you ever wrote?

sounds good.

What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?

I just released my first EP on November 7 2018. I am very proud of that work. There is a lot that went into it. The story is about what I what I went through in my love life but from the feedback I have received so far, many people can relate. The story behind the production of the EP is also interesting. Initially the project was supposed to release on September 29, 2018, hence the 29 candles in the cover art. There were issues with that producer because I did not want my voice auto tuned, he refused to let me release my raw tracks and threatened to sue me if I used the beats. SO I said FUCK this, I can produce my own work and make it sound ten times better and that is what I did. I have received nothing but positive feedback on this project.

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

Yes I would but not until I have gained a big enough audience. The pros to me would be producing music under the mentorship of others that have gained much success. The cons would just be being limited at times by the label. I am a free creator and like to develop my work according to what happens in my life. I like to speak the truth and my story and hope that others can relate.

Any last words?

I would like to shoutout my mother for supporting my dream from such a young age.

Where can people follow you to stay up-to-date?
