Check out the exclusive interview with Trizz below:
How did you gain an interest in music?
Music was always around me just like most musicians. My dad was a CD collector so I was introduced to just about all genres of music except country. The first hip-hop album I was introduced to was Westside Connection’s, “Bow Down”.
What inspired your alias?
I started rapping when I was 9. My name is Tre, and around that time, Snoop Dogg’s “izzle” trend was setting in and my big homie Mike would call me Young Trizzle, as I got older and when that wave died, it transformed to Young Trizz and then just Trizz.
How would you describe yourself as an artist?
I would like to say that I’m diverse with my style. If I’m not on some laid-back “gangsta” shit, I’m on a chill stoner vibe type. I like to think you can’t find my sound anywhere else. Originality is my key.
When you’re not recording, what do you like to get into?
I play video games pretty heavy. Other than that, I travel and go out on chill dates with my lady.
Who are some artists you wish to work with at some point in your career?
I would like to get some work in with ScHoolBoy Q, Snoop, Rihanna, Eminem and Serj Tankian from System of A Down to name a few.
Is there any new projects scheduled to drop from you this year?
I’m working on my next solo album and gearing up to release it after I get off tour, maybe not this year but surely next.
What inspires you to create the music you create?
The things that go on around me. The simple things I see humans get their self into really motivates my music. I also get a lot of inspiration from horror movies and the ID channel – haha.
If you could give any piece of advice to upcoming artists and musicians, what would you tell them?
Don’t allow this industry to influence the music you make. Do what makes you feel good and keep it original. Even if it’s one person supporting you, treat that one person like a million persons.
