Life braces each of us to fulfill a purpose. Before standing tall as the undisputed pioneer of Brooklyn Drill, putting up over 71 million streams, and earning acclaim from Hypebeast, XXL, HotNewHipHop, Noisey, and more, he endured an unbelievable series of hardships, yet emerged as “The General” of an entire movement.
He didn’t just overcome; he launched a movement in its wake. Inspired by the UK drill-style production from London producer AXL Beats, he went hard on 2017’s “Suburban.” Crowned “the first Brooklyn Drill song worth a damn” by Pitchfork, it fostered the explosion of the entire New York drill scene. In 2019, 22Gz’s debut, The Blixky Tape, cemented his style and stature as a pioneer.
In 2020, he releases Growth & Development. “Growth & Development is an homage to my truth and a testament to all of the hard work in the past couple of years,” he states. “I’m cleaning up my reputation, making the best music I can, and growing and developing as an artist."
