As he transitioned from a gym star, he began to dabble into his second love, rap music. “I was bred by artists who personified champions such as the Lox, Jay-Z and 50.” Not failing to recognize talent, Casino, an executive at Up North Entertainment, describes Breez as a self-made artist who only needs that bounce pass to push his own lead. Early in his career, Breez’s talent placed him on Interstate 290 in MA where he would open up for acts like the Migos and Nick Minaj. However, he was still grabbing sixth man of year awards. Then one blue moon his first daughter was born. “Her arrival was my draft night. I realized I finally made the league and now I had to make the Hall of Fame.” He returned to the kitchen and began to cook up Caribbean recipes with Jamaican artist Junior Reid and Miami’s Lil Zoe. “My advantage is that I’m fully lyrically bilingual in both Spanish & English, so I can finish with my right or left!” As the temperature continues to rise and the country begins to open up, expect Breez to set the mood for the summer from Mamajuana Café in Dyckman to Pilo’s Tequila Garden in Wynwood.
With the summer weeks away, the Tri-State spoils rap fans once again with an artist that will make hustlers from Manhattan to Allapattah feel exuberant. Breez’s street anthem Money Mitch (Remix) feat Jim Jones, produced by Trap House Live, inspires the listener to get their own sweet leather duffle bag. Breez resurrects the image of the urban C.E.O. “I don’t condemn the modern artist’s life style, they want to pop pills or sip the dirty sprite. That’s cool, however I grew understanding that you move the product, not consume it.” Breez’s first career choice was not bars & hooks, instead it was hard picks and no looks. “I was very talented, one of the top guards in the Tri-State. However, I wasn’t held accountable academically, so I had to attend two different JUCO. By the time I got to the D1 level, I lost my scholarship because I was pushing weed on campus.”
