VALIDATED: WHAT'S YOUR EARLIEST MEMORY OF HIP-HOP, THE CULTURE?

TRULY URZZZ: MY EARLIEST MEMORY OF HIP-HOP THAT I CAN REMEMBER IS PLAYING WU-TANG CLAN’S “36 CHAMBERS” IN A LOONEY TUNES TASMANIAN DEVIL  CASSETTE PLAYER WHICH I LATER LOST. I WAS SO TIGHT!

 

VALIDATED: HOW DO YOU FEEL THE BRONX HAS INFLUENCED YOUR SOUND AND OUTLOOK ON HIP-HOP?

TRULY URZZZ: THE BRONX IS THE BIRTHPLACE OF HIP-HOP!!! SO BEING BORN AND RAISED IN THE BX I WAS ABLE TO SEE FIRST HAND HOW THE ELEMENTS WAS PASSED DOWN. HIP HOP IS FOR EVERYBODY. YES THERE ARE UNWRITTEN RULES BUT IT GOES TO SHOW HOW UNITED WE CAN BECOME.

 

VALIDATED: HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE THE MUSIC YOUR CREATE?

TRULY URZZZ: THE MUSIC I CREATE IS BASED OFF EMOTION. YEAH, I CAN SPIT SOME HOT S*** OR WRITE A REALLY GOOD VERSE BUT I WANT YOU TO GET GOOSEBUMPS. I WANT YOU TO BE LIKE, “I HEAR THAT S*** YOU TALKIN”, BUT MORE IMPORTANT I MAKE SURE EVERYTHING IS GOOD, CLEAN AND PROPER. MY FOCUS IS MORE ON THE PROFESSIONAL ASPECT AND HAVING EVERYTHING TOGETHER SO I CAN PRESENT IT IN GOOD FASHION.

 

VALIDATED: WITHOUT GIVING IT ALL AWAY, WHAT CAN LISTENERS EXPECT FROM YOUR LATEST PROJECT "BACON EGG CHEESE"?

TRULY URZZZ: “BACON EGG N CHEESE” IS MY FIRST EP. THIS IS THE BEGINNING TO WHAT I'M TRYING TO CREATE, A 8 TRACK EP, ALL ORIGINAL MUSIC. I'M JUST GETTING STARTED WITH THIS ONE, EXPECT A SOLID WELL PUT TOGETHER PROJECT. EVERYTHING WAS MIXED AND MASTERED THE RIGHT WAY. IT TOOK ME ALMOST 2 YEARS TO FINISH THIS BECAUSE I WAS SLACKING

 

VALIDATED: WHICH PRODUCERS AND ARTIST DID YOU WORK WITH ON THE PROJECT?

TRULY URZZZ: THE PROJECT IS A JOINT PROJECT WITH MY FAMILY AND PRODUCER FLIP JACKSON. I DECIDED TO ONLY WORK WITH LYNDZEE, WHICH IS A SINGER WHO IS FEATURED ON “O.T.” I WANTED THIS TO BE ALL ME FOR 2 REASONS, THIS PROJECT MEANS ALOT TO ME AND IT'S SO DIFFICULT TO GET PEOPLE TO DO A VERSE WITHOUT HASSLE.

 

VALIDATED: YOUR SINGLE "AMBITIOUS (WHATEVER THOUGH)", WHATS THE STORY BEHIND IT?

TRULY URZZZ: I'M GLAD YOU ASKED ME THIS QUESTION, “WATEVA THO” IS THE STORY OF MY LIFE. I’M TIRED OF EVERYTHING! I’M AT THE POINT IN MY LIFE... IT’S WATEVA THO! PEOPLE BE SLEEPING LIKE SOMETHING IS SWEET, IT'S WATEVA THO! I’M LIVING IN THE GHETTO TRYING TO MAKE IT OUT, IT’S WATEVA THO! EVERYDAY I GOT TO HUSTLE OR I WILL STARVE, IT’S WATEVA THO! NO MATTER WHAT YOU THROW AT ME I’M GOING TO KEEP PUSHING, IT’S WATEVA THO! AND THAT TO ME IS BEING AMBITIOUS.

 

VALIDATED: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE TRACK OFF OF PROJECT AND WHY?

TRULY URZZZ: HONESTLY, TO KEEP IT FUNKY, O.T. BECAUSE LYNDZEE DID HER THING AND AMBITIONS BECAUSE THAT'S STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART. THAT’S THE OPENING OF THE PROJECT BUT ALL TOGETHER I WOULD SAY “AMBITIONS”, “O.T.” AND “ONE OF THESE”, THAT BEAT IS CRAZY!

 

VALIDATED: TELL US ABOUT YOUR AFFILIATION WITH "THE GOTHAM CITY BOYZ"? HOW DID THE IT COME ABOUT?

TRULY URZZZ: “GOTHAM CITY BOYZ” IS A GROUP MY BLOOD COUSIN, RICKY BATS AND I STARTED WHEN HE CAME OUT OF PRISON. HE WANTED TO START A GROUP THAT WOULD COMPLIMENT HIS SOLO CAREER WITH ME BEING THE NEXT ARTIST UP.

 

VALIDATED: WHAT UPCOMING PROJECTS CAN WE EXPECT FOR THE REMAINDER OF 2018 AND EARLY 2019?

TRULY URZZZ: AFTER “BACON EGG CHEESE”, WHICH IS THE BREAKFAST PART OF WHAT I’M DOING, IT WILL BE TIME FOR LUNCH. SO, IT MIGHT BE “CHICKEN WANG FRENCH FRY” OR “HAMON Y QUESO”.

 

VALIDATED: WHERE CAN THE FANS SUPPORT YOU ONLINE, SOCIAL MEDIA, SHOW, ETC?
