Continuing his ascent as one of the most influential and progressive African artists to break into the mainstream, MR EAZI is breaking boundaries across the wider culture space with his emPawa Africa initiative — Africa’s first incubator programme designed to develop talents within the continent, of which YouTube Music are an official partner.
Speaking on TONY MONTANA, Mr Eazi says: “The energy of the record defines where I am right now in my head. It’s like an announcement of my transition from Mr Eazi to Don Eazi. Once Killertunes (the song’s producer) sent the record, it was an instant connection. I had two possible records I wanted to do with Tyga, one uptempo and this one, and he was attracted to this one more naturally. Working with Tyga has been a true collaboration — from writing to mixing, mastering and the video — I’m learning so much from him”
