A Native of Harlem, but now donning that BX on his chest, he is representing the birth home to many of our past and future stars. When you see Wizo your first impression may be, whoa! Dude looks like he doesn't play. He may be a formidable opponent, but this man is a good guy on his way to greatness because of his obvious love for his music.
Just before the interview , I went on a hunt to see what else was out there in the media about Wizo Cracc. I found that he hasn't had it easy. His young life was hard. Just as we understand the crazy rhythms of the hood, we know its the hard times that can make us, or break us.
Wizo reigns in his music, he overcame adversities and is ready for the big leagues. Many will appreciate his arrival.
My first question was simple and his answer was natural. I asked what was missing in Hip Hop today? Wizo didn't hesitate; I believe he is not alone in his answers when he say's "Authenticity, Originality and Realness."
As the conversation ensued, I couldn't help but to admire how this man was easy to speak with. He is a gentleman with a genuine ability for magnetism. But I still asked my next question which was; what separates you from others out here now?
His answer was pretty genius... My grind, my work ethic is through the roof, there is no task of music that I won't do. If you want me there, then I am there. Bottom line. I want this and I am hungry. If music is your life you make compromises that helps you to keep to your dreams. I love what I do as an artist and I want others to know that when they call on me, that I am coming and I am gonna make it the best they had."
Wizo has new music coming out soon, in conjunction with Coast to Cost mix tapes and he assures the listener a journey of dope lyrics and respectable content. He is excited to bring continue this year working with various artist and has a great respect for everyone in the industry. When I asked who was in his playlist he readily asserts; Dark Lo.. The controversial Nipsey Hussle and prolific artists like She-Real. He went on to add more but I chose these three to let you see his listening diversity. All of these unsigned hypes are different types of flow masters. Which could potentially mean Wizo will not be spitting average bars and enjoys entertaining with a swift tongue.
He shouts out his producers and much to my surprise he has been with his people a long time, no doubt showing loyalty to those he came up with, such as "Ahktane", "Double Nickelz" and "Blackout". He also welcomes new producer from "The Individuals" Ave Beatz in to the fold of his growing career. He also will be working with T-Rex , H- Money and one of the Coke Boys who I will not mention, you're just going to have to look out for that music when it drops!
You need to understand something though, while these are dope collaborations and vary by way of diversified lyrics, Wizo is a ground breaker all on his own. With hits like: I Get Around (freestyle) and Staring, he is considered top tier entertainment. He also has a recent CD out called "Thoughts of A Real Nigga" that is flying off the shelf.
Wizo Cracc is a force, his music will spill into the streets and he will be looked up to. There is no doubt that he has arrived. So take the journey and ride with him, you won't regret a single bar.
