IAA:  What city and state are you from?

E.Z.O:  I was born in Philadelphia, PA, moved to New Rochelle, New York and San Diego, California and now currently reside in Conyers, Georgia.

 IAA:  What is your music background?

E.Z.O:   My music background is alternative hip hop.

 IAA:  What inspired you to pursue music?

E.Z.O:  My music inspirations are from a variety of genres and learning to appreciate not only the lyricism but the production as well. The first time a song really hit me was Will Smith’s 1999 single, “Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It”. It was there I got a taste of hip hop’s many faces.

IAA:  What are your songs about?

E.Z.O:  My songs are relevant to my life and sometimes a story from others that I hear. I especially like to write songs about things, people, places and relate it back to something in someone’s life.

IAA:  Do you write your own music?

E.Z.O:  Yes, I write all my music.

 IAA:  Who are your musical influences?

E.Z.O:  My top influences come from Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park, Black Thought of the Roots, Will Smith, MF Doom, Nas, XV, Slick Rick, Kanye West, Childish Gambino, and the bands, N.E.R.D. and Zebrahead.

IAA:  How would you describe your music to people ?

E.Z.O:   My music is full of jokes but not in a paradoxical form. They have a certain explanation if you break it down. Mainly, my music likes to be jumpy, story-like, and somewhat of a reach out to kids who were outcasts like me.

IAA:  What makes you stand out from other artist ?

E.Z.O:   I stand out from other artists because I respect and appreciate the simple things in my music and in life. People these days have the tendency to just write someone off once they hear them on a genre and think that’s it. In my mind, things are so complex with how music sounds to me I can’t describe fully to others how I stand out to others because they assume I’m just a “rapper”. I hate that term though. I am an Old School head though. Stretching myself back instead of forward is what I like to show my music to people. I am an MC, nothing more, nothing less.

IAA:  What are some upcoming projects, you are currently working on?

 E.Z.O:   I do have projects I wish to get started on. Eventually an album will fall into place. At the moment, I’m just trying to get myself more out there and let people get to know me.

IAA:  What are your career goals? Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

E.Z.O:   My career goals aren’t just in music. I love movies and television. The fascination has always been stuck there since I was around eight or nine years old. One things I especially like to do is critique movies, write skits when I’m not writing songs, visualize how the story can be sold to audiences, and some other stuff. In ten years time, I really hope to work with comedians, actors, singers, musicians, or really just anyone with talent.

IAA:  How can your fans access your music and contact you?

E.Z.O: My music can be accessed here: http://www.reverbnation.com/eazyo360 http://soundcloud.com/omara360 http://www.facebook.com/joeyandezfight http://www.youtube.com/omara007
