Holland Izz is maybe one of the most unique artist coming out of Compton when we talk about sound.
For those who don’t know. Who are you and where are you from?
I’m a 20-year-old up & coming artist named Holland Izz from Compton, CA.
Your style is so much more different than the rest of Los Angeles. What artist Did you aspire to be like coming up ?
I grew up listening to a lot of different music such as; Run Dmc, Slick Rick, Nirvana, Micheal Jackson, Lil Bow Bow, Biggie. Growing up I was all over the place musically. I didn’t aspire to be anyone bc you never know how a person is besides knowing their music.
You put out quality music A LOT. That is tough to do, can you speak on your creative process.
Energy is the most important thing to me whenever I’m in the studio. Without the right vibe, I might not come out of the studio with anything. I need a tolerable engineer that works if not as hard as me then even harder! I work fast & don’t waste any time. Lastly, I need a ton of Red Bull & a Lil Mary Jane if she’s invited *laughter*.
What’s been one of the hardest things you’ve had to overcome as a LOS ANGELES based artist?
One of the hardest things I’ve had to overcome as an LA artist is Myself. I know it may sound corny but it’s 1000% true! As a Believer I’ve had grown to realize as long you have accepted the man above in your life there’s nothing you CAN’T overcome. You’re the greatest nemesis could only be yourself & as long as you elevate not decimate yourself you may live on to see many of your manifestations come true.
Energy is the most important thing to me whenever I’m in the studio.
What can we expect from you in the upcoming months
A WHOLE LOT OF SAUCE! Working on multiple mini-movies off Stay Sunny, MORE Show rocking, more BIG announcements, & o yea MORE MUSIC to get you through this journey called Life.
