Adlibs in between sharp yet choppy flows on top of incredible trap-laced beats, Axel Brizzy proves to be a man on a mission. Though his tracks sit between trendsetters, he shakes things up with singles like Thursday.
You recently released The Prologue. Talk us through the EP.
The songs aren't supposed to be a collective, so it was like doing six different singles that vary in different ways and putting them altogether. The EP is a good intro to who I am as a person and an artist.
How do you switch things up to stay
I’m pretty versatile as an artist. I didn’t rap in my latest single Thursday at all. Instead, I sing which something new for me. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do. I look up to the versatility of Childish Gambino – being a man of many trades and doing them well at the same time.
Any musical guilty pleasures?
People would assume that as a rapper, all I listen to is hip hop – which is not true. I grew up listening to the likes of Fall Out Boy, Boys Like Girls and the Plain White Ts, and that whole genre means a lot to me.
