Bizz-E, 22, musician/entrepreneur
So what kind of music and what kind of entrepreneur-ing?
I work with a t-shirt label, and I'm also working on an EP called Business Before All.
What kind of music?
Good-ass music. It's fucking dope. It's a new genre. Hip-hop, galactic soul.
Who inspires your galactic soul?
I'm not inspired by a lot. There are only a few in the industry right now. Kanye West, and not even just how he raps — it's everything. His style is cool. It's out there sometimes. I am a fan.
What were you just listening to?
I was listening to 88-Keys, featuring J'Davey — a song called "Dirty Peaches."
Listen: 88-Keys - "Dirty Peaches"
Is it your favorite song of the year?
It's actually my song from three years ago — I'm not up to date!
What's a guilty pleasure song?
Probably "Dirty Peaches!" I mean, it's called "Dirty Peaches." That's embarrassing.
Oh, come on, that's not so bad.
I also have some Gaga on here. She gets pretty out there. She's pretty weird.
Wait — you're making hip-hop intergalactic music, and you think Gaga is weird?
I just feel like her newest album stepped a bit out of place, for me. Her music and her art and the way she came up, I'm a fan. But I feel like she's changing. She's got a lot going on. I think she's still trying to get her message out. I did see her dressed up like a man.
What's your music dealbreaker, when you pick up a girl's iPod?
Lil B. If I see Lil B on there, I'm not interested in her.
Who would you be a groupie for?
Skylar Grey. She's new. I like her art. She did that song with Eminem — she has a dope voice.
Listen: Eminem ft. Skylar Grey - "Sweet Dreams"
What's a band or artist that should just stop?
I can't. I'm not a hater.
Oh, come on. I will: Bruno Mars.
Really? You don't like him? What about Tyler the Creator?
I don't like his homophobia.
I don't think he's as homophobic as he acts. They're all crazy, but they do their thing.
