After an impressive line up of audio singles and video premieres, the self-proclaimed bad guy of Hip Hop, Izzy Strange, delivers his two year sonic journey entitled “A Good Day 2 B The Bad Guy”. After a long stretch of time, two years to be precise, Izzy puts forth one of the best indie Hip Hop albums of 2017. He is able to accomplish this with the aid of producers Nate Fox, Casa Nada and Netherfriends. When combined, the three man trio construct a sonic sound bed littered in Jazz, classic Rock, early Hip Hop and Emoesque elements.
From first listen, AGD2BTBG carries crossbred sounds from artists such as The Beastie Boys and Eminem. With a unique delivery, complex rhyme schemes and distinguishable accent, Izzy provides a fresh sound that sets him apart from the rest of today’s Rap pack. The album bolsters features from highly respected artists such as Eligh, Open Mike Eagle, Red Pill, Mike Incite and Mick Jenkins, a featured single that premiered on Hip Hop DX.
A total of fifteen songs make up the album and cover topics like God, love, fear, chasing dreams and family. Being bad has never sounded so good. Izzy uses personal past experiences as well as close friends lives to weave stories into works of art. Listen to “A Good Day 2 B The Bad Guy” below and stay tuned for the video for “No Commercials” to debut very soon.
