Encounter the musical energy of LA’s Elevator Music Group collective and you’ll know that here is a group of artists with their eyes on the prize and their eyes on the rise. And one of the leading lights of the movements is Beezy, a rapper repping Inglewood hard and spitting venomous rhymes over classic West Coast beats. Soon to drop the BeezyCho mixtape project alongside stablemate ChoCho, hot on the heels of the Beezy mixtape, EMG are a bunch who you could do worse than get on board with for a ride to the upper floors. We grabbed the young man with an x-rated mouth and asked him to break down for The Twelve, but leave the expletives at home for once.
1. Who's in the house?
EMG is in the house...next we going to own the building.
2. Can it be that it was all so simple then?
I believe everything is complex even if it seems simple there was still that struggle. But nothing was or is simple. Anything good in life you work for.
3. It ain't where you're from, it's...?
Where you been, where you trying go, and how you carried yourself doing it.
4. Give me the fortune, keep the fame?
Umm…money is one of the main goals, but not want I want to be remembered for. Although it comes along with the process I’d rather my name just to be mentioned with the legends of hip hop as a real lyricist…that’s all the fortune I need.
5. After the show it's the after-party, and after the party it's the...?
The studio to make more music to party to.
6.It's quite okay for a gangster to wear sandals?
It okay for anyone to wear sandals, if you are secure about your manhood wearing sandals shouldn’t be a problem.
7. If I ruled the world?
I'd be a peaceful king with kick-ass lyrics.
8. Do you want more?
If by more you mean fans and attention to all the hard work I put into my music...then yes.
9. How does it feel?
It feels kind of cool really I just hope this feeling I’m feeling is everlasting.
10. What's next on the menu?
Man a busy schedule. First we’re working on Cho Cho’s mixtape #JustAnotherDay which drops this fall, also the official #ElevatorMusicGroup Mixtape feat. all our artists is due this fall. Cho and I are working on the #EMG presents: choBeezy mixtape due early winter. Early 2012 Cho Cho and I will be dropping our albums. In between all that, shows photo shoots, events, etc. Just trying to stay busy and keep a buzz
11. Give me the reason to want you back?
Because I have plenty to give also. I put so much into my work ethic, that if I had enough listeners to showcase my talent to they would respect my hustle and me and except that as fair exchange.
12. Tell us why it's all love...
It’s all love because you couldn’t do what you were doing to the fullest if it wasn’t
