Eezy Money rises from the ashes of a rough past to emerge as hip-hop’s newest voice

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Every now and then the hip-hop industry is introduced to a rapper who personifies that struggle of the streets. Eezy Money is hip-hop’s most recent embodiment of that struggle.

 

His new EP, “1st Come 1st Serve” is a nod to that struggle and a plea to other young men to avoid the same pitfalls that he fell into through a life of drugs and crime.

Hailing from Washington, D.C., Eezy found himself knee-deep in the hard life that comes from living in the neighborhoods of northeast D.C. He was involved in drugs and found himself in prison by age 17. He’d always been good with words and loved rap, however, and during his time in jail he worked on his craft as a musician. When he was released, he had a body of work that attracted a record executive with Keeplock Entertainment, which offered him a record deal. Things looked promising, but Eezy couldn’t find his way out of the street life and he soon landed in a prison a second time. This time he was there for two years. When he got out, he asked to be released from his record deal and started from scratch to rebuild his reputation as a musician.

“Before I went to prison I was about to take off,” he said. “But when I got out of that contract I was frustrated with how the music industry wasn’t moving fast enough. I got back on the streets because I needed money, but I was saving music that I knew I’d be able to release some day.”

Unfortunately, the street life caught up with him yet again and he went to prison a third time, this time for a stint of four years. Now, newly released from that prison sentence and fully ready to embrace a changed life, Eezy said his new EP is something that he hopes will not only put him on the map as a legitimate rapper, but also testify to other young rappers from the street how to do life the right way.

“This whole project is about how the way the (music) game is going right now, and it’s not how it’s supposed to go,” he said. “It’s not just the music, but the people in general. I see what people are doing right now, and a lot of them aren’t doing it the right way. There shouldn’t be guns in videos and drugs and just a lot of things that rappers are putting out right now that aren’t cool. Those aren’t codes you should live by – trust me, I know.”

Eezy said he hopes people will hear his music and not only give their lives a hard look and maybe second thoughts about the negative lifestyles they’re living, but also be inspired by his persistence through life and encouraged by how he never gave up on his dream of being a professional musician.
