Q&A WITH BOZEA
How did you come up with your stage name? Tell us where you’re from and what first got you interested in the entertainment industry?
The name BOZEA came from a close friend who used to say I was a deep story teller like a prophet. I’m from Cleveland, OH. I was always excited about Rap/Hip-Hop. As a child and started writing lyrics at age 14 due to the challenges and struggles I was facing in my environment. I wanted to put my life story on paper.
Who and/or what inspires you to create?
Seeing how far rap has gone and still striving keeps me motivated as well as the fans who support me.
How would you describe your sound?
My sound is a Cleveland lyrical grimy style full of truth.
THE CREATIVE PROCESS
What is your creative process like?
I go with what my mind gives me in everyday life and what the track causes me to create afterwards.
What artist(s) would you like to collaborate with?
I’m down to collaborate with both major and independent artists who are lyrically talented and serious about their craft.
If you could open a show for any artist who would it be?
I’m going to have to think big and say Jay Z, 50 Cent, Lil Wayne, Kendrick Lamar, Drake, and J Cole.
