B-EZ, the rapper, producer, entrepreneur, and MC of Staten Island, NY shines a light on the
world through his encouraging music. The rapper has opened up shows for hit artists from his home state of New York like Ashanti, Method Man, and Ja Rule. His voice and tone of his music are inspired by artists like J.Cole, Eminem, Nas, etc but he is creating his own flair that
motivates his fans to be themselves no matter the struggle.

B-EZ spoke with Ayanna Williams, a student journalist at Troy University, to chat about his
musical background, the meaning of B-EZ, and his latest singles.

Ayanna Williams: I’m aware that you’re very versatile. You’re a producer, entrepreneur, rapper, and you do it all. Did you grow up in a musical background and what inspired you to start creating music?
B-EZ: “So my father goes by the name of Optometrist, like an eye doctor and he was a
rapper from State Island. I remember growing up at four and five years old on stage with
him and I wasn’t rapping with him, but I was the guy holding up the merch and posters
of him. Seeing that crowd made me want that and because of my upbringing and seeing
the success and the downfalls my father faced, I’m like ok I want to do it my way and
that’s basically where I’m at right now.”
Ayanna Williams: How did you come up with your name?
B-EZ: “I’m an Aries and I have anger and I use to play football, so based on that, my
character and energy are always hyper and a lot of people would tell me to be easy or
calm down. I put that into the music and that’s the same type of thing. I tend to not
overdo it, but I try to go as high as I can with my music. I go above and beyond and I feel
like that encaptures my vibe ‘B-EZ’. He’s energetic, but at the same time, he’s about his
business. It also stands for ‘Ballistic Elimination Zone’. I came up with that when I was
Ayanna Williams: Tell us about your single “Just Like That” and what does it mean to you?
B-EZ: “The song itself was created by me, my cousin, and my friend. For that single, we
wanted that summertime vibe. We wanted it to be played anywhere. It does have curses
in it, but it’s still like a good vibe and everybody can relate to it. You can play it where
there are palm trees or you can play it when it’s raining outside. It’s a song that can
attract any audience.”
Ayanna Williams: Do you think you’ll expand into different genres?
B-EZ: “Oh yeah absolutely. My music is very versatile. I can go boom-bap, I can go trap,
and I can even try to do melody-type music as well, but versatility is my thing. I like to try different things as far as going to a different genre. Even with my production when I
produce, I produce a lot of beats that are just not catered to one genre – it’s catered to
many. I can make a song or beat for Kehlani or make a beat for Fivio Foreign. I wouldn’t
mind going into different genres with my music or trying to reach a different audience
with a sound that I never thought of before. I just want to grow as an artist overall.”
