Mezuo, tell us a little more about how you got into music!
The music surfaced early on in high school for me when I rapped in a cypher during a summer program at Columbia University in New York city.
I started writing, making beats, and performing within the next year and some change.
I ultimately made the decision to fully pursue a career in music during my second year of college at The University of Texas at Austin.
The journey has been wild, but fast forward through a lot of heartbreaks, triumphs, and Hollywood hurdles from my teens through part of my twenties...and here we are.
Debut visual for “30” out now.
Tell us more about some of the inspiration behind the song "30" .
I produced the record December 2017 which was the end of my first full year in LA.
The beat came about from wanting to make something simplistic that knocked...a lot.
I freestyled over the beat to capture the hook melodies.
Conceptually, I’ll say that I was in one of the more dramatic periods of my life as my relationship of almost three years was on very hot water.
I was simultaneously hitting major strides in LA as I had just caught my first major blog placement and interview in the city, released my first single since moving from Texas, and I was two months away from my first show in LA that I was co-producing.
Additionally, I had just gained major industry access with events in the city within the last 2 months.
