IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What is your favorite song to perform and why?

JEZY: My favorite song to perform has to be has to be “Beat Destroyer” off my 2nd mixtape “Killed It Vol.2”. The reason why that song is my favorite to perform is that the beat is just crazy and the feeling I have on stage when it drops is incredible, I feel invincible in that moment. The energy really radiates off of me and I see it reciprocated back to me from my fans in the audience.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What has surprised you the most in the pursuit of a career in music?

JEZY: The one specific thing that surprised me most in my music career has to be my fans. I don’t just catch people who only like Rap music, It tends to be all different type of people who say things like “I don’t even like rap that much but your stuff is awesome and I look forward to what’s next”. I find it very motivating and encouraging that I touch a lot of different people.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What makes you stand out from other artists?

JEZY: The things that make me stand out from other artist is the fact I don’t rap about what everyone else does. My sound is refreshing and I have a voice that is not replicated in today’s music.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What would you like to see changed in today’s music industry?

JEZY: One thing I would like to see changed in today’s music industry has to be the repetitive music. A lot of rap songs now-a- days all sound the same or they are all portraying the same message. I feel that the people who have all this money and resources to produce great music are just being lazy; you have to be different to stand out so why fall in with the rest?
