Meet and Get To Know Jay Bizzy
Kulture Vulturez: Can you breakdown your introduction into hip hop?
Jay Bizzy: I started making Hip Hop music around 2017 with one of my best friends while we were in college. I started Music BTEC in college and I would have access to the recording studio so I’d sneak a couple friends in and we’d just record for ages. Around 2019 I started moving more to the melodic rap sound which I’ve fully adopted today. I guess artists that were really starting to sizzle that year kind of influenced me to adopt that sound. Big up artist such as Lil Tjay, Lil Durk.
Kulture Vulturez: Having Nigerian heritage and spending time in the U.K., what influences from those two places inspired yourself into becoming an artist?
Jay Bizzy: I’d say UK or Western culture in general has had a significant impact on me as an artist than my Nigerian ancestry. The battles on hardships growing up as a black youth in the west is something we can all relate to in one way or another, were as the struggles of growing up in Africa or experiencing that way of life for extended periods of time isn’t really something I can relate to. I’ve been to Nigeria plenty of times over the years, but a quick 1-2 week trip isn’t really experiencing growing up or living in an environment for years.

Kulture Vulturez: With the UK’s rap scene being dominate, how do you think you can stand apart from other artists?
Jay Bizzy: I believe I stand out without even trying to hard. Not too many people have had superstar success from the UK when it comes to melodic rap, and I think with my musical ability I can really shine brighter than most in this lane. I’ve been able to play 7 instruments since the age of 12/13, now I’ve just turned 23 so as you can imagine that 10+ years of refining my musicianship.
I believe this allows me to be a whole different type of artist which will separate me from the rest. I’ll give you just 1 example. To my knowledge right now there isn’t any UK rapper who really puts on a well produced live shows right now. Only really Dave or Stormzy. What I’m going to do will be legendary.
Just picture a full live show which incorporates multiple elements, songs where I strip them down and it’s just me and a piano or even a guitar. Parts with a full live band and back up singers. I could go on but I think you get the gist.

Kulture Vulturez: With the success of your recent release “Noidd”, overall, how can you breakdown your catalogue of music as you are just getting your career started?
Jay Bizzy: I’d say before “Noidd” I only really had either pain or slow songs in my released catalogue, but “Noidd” has just gone and thrown a spanner in the works. I knew I had to switch it up and I think this was the perfect track to do just that. You can expect more tracks like this in the near future.
Kulture Vulturez: Into the new year, what is next for you? What do you have in store and upcoming that people should be on the lookout for?
Jay Bizzy: Last year I dropped 2 EP’s, this year you can expect at least 1 mixtape and for me to keep bring the heat. More uptempo tracks but at the same time the pain tracks are still there. I just want to show the world this year what I’m actually capable of.
