Meet Miami rapper Bzzy.
Bzzy, formerly known as Bizzy Crook is a Miami rapper with so much talent that he inked a deal while still in high school. Since venturing off as independent artist, Bzzy has toured with artists like PartyNextDoor, Wale and Jeremih. In the past few years Bzzy was made a Tidal rising artist and performed at Made In America and South by Southwest festivals. Recently Bzzy dropped the visual for “Crazy Love,” a track off his latest project A Part of Everything. We caught up with Bzzy about the new video, working with Tidal and his plans for the future.
Yes, the making of Crazy Love -so we had this really dope idea. Me and the directors, we both love this show called Black Mirror on Netflix, we knew we wanted to recreate that. We wanted to recreate a Black Mirror episode with a message in the end. So we shot it in LA, we brought Jilly Anais as the lead girl, we had a great time shooting and we are very happy with how it came out.
Can you talk about being a part of the Tidal family and getting to be the Tidal Rising Artist?
It’s been an amazing, growing experience. You know I’m honored to be Tidal team since day one and it’s been amazing to see how much they’ve grown. To be just be a part of it all it’s a good feeling. It’s been like a ya know real relationship like it’s going over the years they’ve had my back since day one. I’m blessed to able to work with a machine like Tidal.
When did you first connect with Tidal?
So the relationship started about I want to say two years ago now, pretty much when Tidal launched. We started talking and like two weeks later I see my mixtape on their commercial that aired up during the Billboards and I was like ‘Wow, that was quick.’ Then I performed on the Tidal stage at Made in America, a few months later and since then the dynamic of that relationship has just been growing you know. They’ve been doing new things like shooting music videos for me and helping roll out my projects. I’m excited for what we do in the future.
Can you talk about what it was like to work with Tidal on your videos ‘If Only You Knew’ and ‘Letters from Syria?’
They’ve helped connect me with the directors that had the same vision as me. Tidal does a lot, it’s a lot more than s streaming service it’s a creative group. They have the best directors, they kind of just have an amazing creative team who comes out and works hand in hand with the artists. ‘Letters from Syria’ was a record that I wrote one day when I was just in the studio and the news had just happened to be on. Preferably, I never watch the news but it was somebody else’s studio and it was just on, on mute. And just seeing the images that the news was showing really did something to me, especially me having Middle Eastern background. When I finished the record and I showed it to Tidal they were very happy to support. They loved the message behind it and they were on board 100%.
Can you talk about your upcoming project and plan?
So I am moving to LA in about two weeks to work on my new project it is call ‘Before I Jump’. All of my music in the past has come from a dark place, but I’m actually in a very clear and bright place now so you can feel it through the music. And although the title ‘Before I Jump’ is very dark, the music will be very bright and the world never heard me like this so I’m excited. I plan on this being the project that takes me overseas.
You just mentioned that it’s coming from a much lighter place, but in terms of production can you talk about how it’s different from your previous projects?
It’s different because as far as production its very bright. I know my fans will appreciate it to see me in a good space. You know for the first time I ‘m not making music from my depression because I’m not in depression at the moment. So you know I’m just excited to get out of my box and find a new comfort space and I still rap. The energy is different and a good kind of different.
