MP3: Izzy Strange – Izzy Duz It
Pennsylvanian emcee Izzy Strange proudly presents his 11 track mixtape effort, “Izzy Duz It”. The title serves as a double entendre, inspired by Eazy-E’s explicit debut project and showcasing Izzy’s ability to create multifaceted music that spreads over a multitude of genres.
Three months prior to “Izzy Duz It”, a single surfaced from Strange featuring Blu and a rising singer out of Izzy’s hometown, Sara Fox. Titled “Just Me”, the soulfully charged Mayeniac & Leauxfi production found the trio speaking on standing on your own two feet. Then in late September, Izzy returned with the chilling tales of “Halfway Crooks” alongside Mick Jenkins and a ghastly Nate Fox instrumental. Shortly after, the news of “Izzy Duz It” was announced along with news of the aforementioned singles being added in to the mix.
With expectations set extremely high for his third album, “The Die Is Cast”, the songwriter found himself within a deep creation zone this past summer. In between brainstorming sessions for the album, he would scowl thru beats on YouTube. After venting over a few tracks, Strange was inspired to create a mixtape to continue the strong momentum he’s amassed over the past couple of years.
