Life & Work with Neyzus

Today we’d like to introduce you to Neyzus. Them and their team share their story with us below:

Neyzus – Born in Washington DC, raised in the DMV area and now living in Atlanta, GA. Neyzus is one of the newest LGBTQA rappers on the scene! Neyzus blew us alway with his very first single “Nasty” in 2021, followed up by “2 Mins”, which showed people that Neyzus can really RAP and he was “in his bag and not coming out” Now In 2022, Neyzus has proved that he is not only a “Rapper” but also an amazing performer with his newest single & FIRST official music video for “That’s Right” and he doesn’t plan on stopping there which is getting amazing reviews! THATS RIGHT!

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
I’ve always had a passion for music but never thought there was a lane for artist to be themselves, especially an openly homosexual BLACK male artist. I’ve dealt with so many insecurities within that stood in the way of what I was truly passionate about, which is performing & music. The road has always been weird, trying to figure out where I fit in.. in life but I’m so happy I’m finally at the place where I truly feel confident and comfortable with who I am.

The past year or two, I dealt with depression and anxiety. I felt like life was slipping away from me and I didn’t understand but now I do.. I was leveling up, I was facing things that I tried to run from but it only made me stronger. I now know who Neyzus is, I’ve set boundaries and I just want to feel good. THATS RIGHT!

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I rap, period. For the longest I felt weird saying that but I do. I write music, I rap, I dance and I’m a runway slayer… I’m a performer! Give me a stage and watch how I work it.

My song “Nasty” really opened my eyes and so many other eyes too! That song is my favorite! it’s so raw, freaky but yet so real. People relate to that freaky stuff and I like that. I’m so proud of how I put that record out and was so fearless about it. Yes, I’m Neyzus and yes, I am NASTY but THATS RIGHT is just a whole level up! That my baby! I really put some work in that project. The visual, the production.. that’s when I knew! I’m a ARTIST! Im a star! People may not see it or say it.. but I do and to be honest That’s all that matters..

So maybe we end on discussing what matters most to you and why?
My peace of mind matters! Spreading awareness about things that I connect with matter. do, I matter the most to me. My peace of mind, my bag & my village

I’ve lost my peace of mind trying to be a shoulder for other people, trying to love other people for too long.. My peace of mind is everything! – My family and friends are my everything. They motivate, encourage and push me. Where would I be without them?

I also want to be a positive light to people. Encourage & uplift people. This is all fun, I’m having the time of my life but I also understand that I have a platform so it’s not just about me anymore! It’s about the little gay black boys coming after me who are unsure of themselves and their potential. I wanna show them that the best route is your route! Do you! The doors will open themselves.
