Mr Eazi Tells Apple Music About Collaborating With Major Lazer
This is like one of many, I always say we recorded a lot of music, we’ve talked together. And so Diplo and I were even speaking, that maybe we should just put out the music we recorded, just put it together as a project, put it out and just talk because it’s a lot.
Mr Eazi Tells Apple Music About emPawa Africa
It’s been an amazing one year of beauty in the company and working with all these amazing new artists from across Africa. And there’s just so much more to do, so much more come. And pretty excited for the future. And I think now is the best time since it’s time for African music. So this is the best time for emPawa to exist, basically.
Mr Eazi Tells Apple Music About Forthcoming Project
This is like the first song from the project called, “Something Else.” Which is like a lockdown season project. It’s dropping in November, there’s another single or two more dropping, I think October the 4th or October the 9th.random
It’s just more singles till it drops. It’s going to be that kind of project that, one just comes alive every, maybe every three weeks, till the project drops.
