EZM was born Malcolm Antonio Erskine on November 14, 1989 in Bethesda Maryland. At the age of 4 his family moved to Virginia Beach, Virginia. While growing up his parents would always play a variety of music and that is what inspired his passion to being song writing. At the age of 16, he started writing lyrics for fun. It wasn’t until the age of 18 that he began to pursue his passion full time. After graduating from high school he shortly attended college before enlisting in the military to make money to build his own studio. While in the military he met and collaborated with many other independent artist. The networking helped him build a solid foundation for his own career. EZM got his name from his personality and lifestyle. An easy going person with a lavish lifestyle hence the nickname “EZMillionzz”. EZM is self-taught in song writing, vocals, and music therapy. 

 

IAA SPOTLIGHT: What  city  and  state  are  you  from?

EZM:  I was born in Maryland and raised Virginia Beach, Virginia which is apart of what we call “The 7 Cities”  

 

IAA SPOTLIGHT:  What  is  your  music  background?

EZM:  I would have to say that my music background comes from my parents. As a kid they would always have different types of music playing in the house. From K-Ci & JoJo to Tupac & Biggie.  I fell in love with music at a very young age and they are the reason for that.    

 

IAA SPOTLIGHT:  Why  do  you  want  to  record  and  release  your  own music?

EZM:   That’s simple. I want to bring real lyricism back. The way the music is today it doesn’t really take great lyrics to make a hit song. You get a good beat and a catchy hook with some sub par lyrics and you are good. When you think of music that is timeless what is it about that song that makes it that good? It’s the lyrics and that is what I want to bring back. I want to bring music that is not only catchy, but also has serious meaning behind it. Also to put VA back on top. We haven’t had our style of music. We are overlooked a lot, and I want to change that way of thinking   

 

IAA SPOTLIGHT:  What  are  your  songs  about?

EZM:   My songs are all about my experiences. Things that I have done, seen in my family, and things I have seen and witnessed. My music is about my life and the things that I represent.  

 

IAA SPOTLIGHT:  Who  are  your  musical  influences?

EZM:   My influences are 2pac and Biggie of course. Ace Hood, Gorilla Zoe, T.I., Kevin Gates, Yo Gotti, 50 Cent. I even listen to different artist in different genres such as rock, R&B, and even pop music. The way these artists can take life experiences and turn it into music is the main reason why they are the ones who influence me.    

 

IAA SPOTLIGHT:  How  would  you  describe  your  music  to  people?

EZM:  My music is Real. Every bar has meaning. Music is meant to entertain and inspire.  That is what I strive to do. It is also very versatile. I can make songs that can be related to by any person from any background.   

 

IAA SPOTLIGHT:  What makes  you  stand  out  from  other artists?

EZM:  Every artist is different. No one has experience life the way I have. I allow listeners to experience music thru a new set of eyes. Each song I make will tap into a different emotion and different feeling for the listener to vibe to.   

 

IAA SPOTLIGHT: Tell us about one of the hardest challenges you had to face in your music career and how did you overcome?

EZM:   The hardest challenge would have to be to get people to believe in you. They say any one can rap, but only a few can be artists. When you listen to a song and you hear what that artist has to say you should believe every thing that song is about. That is how I want to capture my audience.  

 

IAA SPOTLIGHT: What are some upcoming projects that you are currently working on?

EZM:   Right now I’m currently working on my latest single “Amen”. That will be the lead single of the upcoming mixtape “#CAMEUP”. I’m getting that setup right for a big project that will be dropping this summer.  

 

IAA SPOTLIGHT:  What are your career goals? Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

EZM:   My goals are to establish myself as a serious recording artist. I wan to drop like 3 Albums and then turn to my focus more behind the scene. I would definitely like to get into song writing and artist development. In 10 years I can see myself a successful established artist with a label. I want to develop new talent while also holding my own in the industry   

 

IAA SPOTLIGHT: How can your fans access your music and contact you?

EZM:   My fans can access my me thru Twitter & IG: @EZMillionzz and facebook: EZ Millionzz https://www.facebook.com/malcolm.e.erskine. my fans can also access my music via reverbnation. http://www.reverbnation.com/ezmillionzz
