Mr. Eazi says that he never wanted to be an artist, but rather an entrepreneur. He started doing parties in school and eventually found himself in the studio. He says that he didn’t even decide to be an artist until Lauren Hill reached out to him in 2016 to perform at Kings Theater in Brooklyn.
Mr. Eazi says that he has stayed independent throughout his career because he doesn’t like to blame people. He says that if he fails, he wants to know that it was his own fault. He also says that he values freedom and wants to be able to make music when he wants, sing how he wants, and drop an album when he wants.
Mr. Eazi’s new project, The Evil Genius, is his first true album. He says that this music is the most personal he has ever made. He says that he used to write songs about things that weren’t happening to him, but on this album, he is singing about his own experiences. He says that he realized that music could be therapy for himself, so he started saying things that he couldn’t say before.
Mr. Eazi says that he has never done therapy, but that making this album was like therapy for him. He says that he was able to say things on the album that he didn’t even have the balls to say to himself.
Mr. Eazi has also said he’ll want to invest in movies next year. He said all these things in an interview with Angela Yee on YouTube, stating that he learned a lot during his stay at Harvard. Mr. Eazi said, “I am investing in movies starting next year because we will have music in the movies.
