ezri initially began writing music simply as a means of entertainment, but over the years the hobby began to serve as a medium to take negative aspects in his life and transform them into positive self-expression. This is one of the driving forces of ezri’s music as he confronts the pressures of his life by creating honest and transparent lyrics. After releasing his first two projects, it’s ezzy and everything ezzy, the Clevelander garnered a lot of attention following his show-stopping freestyle on Sway in the Morning—accumulating over 8 million views online.

He has since played a stellar guest star role on Fox’s hit show Empire and play a lead role in The Land film, executive produced by Nas. The music video for ezri’s goodbye on The Land’s soundtrack released subsequently as he takes a stroll down his neighborhood and says goodbye to his life struggles in a ‘Letter to the Hood’. Up next for ezri is going full-throttle with his music career, as his latest EP titled Be Right Back was released October 27, 2018 on with Mass Appeal Records.
