When he emerged onto the scene with his viral hit “Kyrie Irving” in 2015, it was clear that Brownsville native Bleezy was on course to continue Brooklyn’s impeccable track record in Hip-Hop; ready to follow in the footsteps of the likes of Big Daddy Kane, the Notorious B.I.G.,Jay-Z, Busta Rhymes, Mos Def, Fabolous and countless others who have managed to preserve the essence of Hip-Hop, while balancing lyricism with commercial appeal. Picking up the baton for his generation, Bleezy displays an impressive versatility. On the “Kyrie Irving” Remix, released one year after the original, his unmistakably New York-bred cadence and bulletproof flow found him holding his own alongside hometown rap heroes Maino, Uncle Murda and Troy Ave. After years of proving his technical skills and lyrical prowess with shows throughout the East Coast and the releases of three mixtapes – “D.O.D. – Definition of Dreams” , New Crack City  and Black Christmas  – Bleezy began experimenting with his delivery, first with the melodic 2018 offering “High & Gone.” In 2019, as he readies the release of his next mixtape “The New Brooklyn,” has consistently delivered a variety of sounds, from the somber “Demons” to the club-ready “Work,” to the raw “Jockin My Fresh,” proving that he has no intentions of stopping and that he has something for every fan, regardless of musical preferences or geographic location.
Music has been a motivating factor for Bleezy since his early teen years, thanks to the unwavering mentorship of entrepreneur Eugene “80” Simms, founder of Bleezy’s label Team 80 Ent.. But he is equally inspired and influenced by his community as a whole. Despite all that has been made of gentrification in Brooklyn, Brownsville remains largely unaffected and thus, still plagued by many inner city woes. As a matter of fact, one of the greatest catalysts to his career was the loss of several close friends and family members in 2014, many to gun violence, Even when that chain of events inspired him to focus on his career, Bleezy still found himself on the wrong end of the law, spending just enough time within the system to recommit to being the Definition of his own Dreams. “I want my music to be a voice for the people,” Bleezy says. “I want it to inspire kids who are growing up like me. But I don’t want to encourage them to follow in my footsteps, I want them to see that their dreams are possible. And I want to use my dream to support theirs.”
