Multifaceted music producer EyeOnEyez is back with another banger for the streets.
No rookie to the business, EyeOnEyez has produced for and recorded with Hip-Hop heavyweights, such as Gucci Mane, Rick Ross, the late Prodigy of Mobb Deep, T.I., legendary members of the Wu Tang Clan amongst many others.
EyeOnEyez’s name and unique sound have been forever cemented in rap culture, respectfully. His desire to create “trap music” began in 2015. He learned to play bass and guitar at age 14 with aspirations to become a jazz musician.
“Hip hop has always been at the forefront of my goals, so my love for music production drew me back to the studio.”EyeOnEyez
Indubiously known for his unconventional basslines and live instrumental rifts and improvisations, EyeOnEyez was introduced to Wu Tang Clan’s Raekwon, who he continues to credit for his official introduction into the entertainment industry as a connector for the novice producer. When asked about his infamous red mask, EyeOnEyez lends to his mysterious, introverted nature.
Stepping from behind the shadows of an enigma, the masked super-producer taps fellow trap artists, TI, 42 Dugg, Yung Dro and others to debut his first solo project, Greed and Mystery. With breakout songs such as “We Paid” and “Look What I Got” featuring 42 Dugg, Eye On Eyez explains the inspiration behind the visual concepts. “For ‘Look What I Got’, I pulled ideas from my favorite TV show Rick and Morty and classic film Faces of Death. I used many themes to bring my thoughts to life and used a simple storyline to bring everything to life.”
EyeOnEyez continues to inspire an alternative genre of upcoming artists and musicians and offers simple advice: “If you love music, you just do it. Most musicians are compulsive. Sometimes it’s against your best interest. Most musicians create music because we have to. It’s in your veins… in your thoughts…ingrained in your every moment of life. Never stop working on your craft. You never know where you may land… or where your imagination may take you.”
