As part of our ongoing “Rap’s New Generation” series, today we sat down with the upcoming underground artist Blayza from Kansas City 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, Blayza! Let’s go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?
Blayza: I first started doing music as a way to get my emotions out, because I wouldn't express it any other way but on paper. Then after a trip from new york, I wrote a song about moms and struggling women. I told myself I can use my music as a way to give people the tools the courage to fight their demons. By giving them empowerment, through my music. That’s what I want my music to do!
The best advice given to me was by my father he said: "No matter what you do always believe in yourself and don't let others steer you off your path to your aspiration and goals"
What about concerts? Do you play live?
Yes, I do I have just started getting on stage, I could have done so much sooner but I wanted my music to grow and I wanted to grow not just a person but as a brand, for people to remember.
Best punchline you ever wrote?
let me kill the Mumble rap, hit you with the simple facts, cuz if I really get the preaching you don't want to hear all that, try to lead them to the water, They ain't goin drink out that, taste buds to Sweet they ain't ready for these facts.
