Every music passionate should get to know the up and coming hip-hop artist and MC 3Breezy.
Born and raised in New Jersey, 3Breezy was inspired by Chris Brown, Ne-Yo, Usher to name a few, and it’s safe to say that R&B was always his primary passion over rap music. These influences drove him to the creation of his current successful project, a mixture of melodic rap and baritone vocals. Before the pandemic, 3Breezy obtained his certification to become a veterinarian technician but music always held a special place in his heart and finally took over everything. He began making music in his own room, downloading GarageBand and experimenting with DIY recording methods. Soon, he started sharing his music on social media such as TikTok, receiving immense positive feedback and suddenly realizing his incredible potential. His 2020 super-hits “Message to Her” and “Love Hurts” made him reach out to a bigger fanbase and made him a new household name in the hip-hop industry.
On October 7th he released his brand new single called “Self Love”, which centers on the importance of being the best version of ourselves. "Many of my songs represent self love, trying to spread the importance of it and not depending on anybody.. Love comes within yourself, you have to try to be the best version of yourself”.
We talked to him about the inspiration behind some of his lyrics, the importance of finding positivity out of struggles and protecting women at all costs.
You cover many topics in your songs, such as relationships, heartbreaks, domestic abuse and the importance of treating women fairly. Do you think that these topics should be more of an open conversation amongst your colleagues in the rap and hip-hop culture?
It’s always been my process. I want people to remember me for a positive aspect, I don’t want people to remember me as the guy that talks about killing, sex and selling drugs. I want a positive image behind my name. I want my legacy to live long.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s cool if others want to do it but what positive impact does it really have on people?
See, my thing is, I wanna be able to help and motivate people, especially women, I grew up in a house full of women and I’ve seen things happening to them. I couldn’t help them out when I was younger but now I can.
I know that a lot of artists don’t touch on these topics and it's fine, if nobody does, I will.
I don't worry too much about what people think. Do you think it should be more of an open topic?
I experiment on it because it’s always good to experience, but speaking as an artist, this won’t be my only topic.
What’s the story behind the name “3Breezy? I’m going to be honest with you, 3 is my favorite number and Breezy just sounds cool to me. At first when I was just making music for fun, I was going with the name “100k Ben”. Then I started thinking about a name and I thought: 3 is my favorite number and Breezy just sounds cool and I thought ok that's it, I’m going with that! How have the women in your life influenced your music? How involved are they in your process?
They see the whole process and they support me 100%. When I first started getting into it, they didn’t really know, I didn’t tell them too much about it but once I told them, they were so proud of me, especially my great-grandma. I had turned into the young man that she always wanted me to be, helping people and stuff… and that made her proud.
So yeah they are very supportive, they even have my music as their ringtone, they share it with their friends and stuff, it’s really all love over here!!
