Ezko is a rapper from Gaithersburg. He released his album Buy Myself. Ezko dabbles in what he calls “Emotional Dirt Rap.” And we love it.
In his own words,
Maryland rapper Ezko gives us the diary of the last two-years of his journey as a millennial, who pushes through opposition from friends and family and more to solidify his position in the music industry. Buy Myself chronicles the high-life of realizing your dreams and seeing them come to fruition, and the harsh reality of the sacrifices that come with following your dreams.
The Cameroonian-American rapper addresses obstacles on this album that are different than that of his peers. Born on a mountain in Buea, Cameroon, Ezko created this album with a pending US citizenship, during the “Make America Great Again”, “Build a Wall” Trump campaign. The follow-up to his SLEEP EP, Buy Myself proves that Ezko has found his footing, and is hitting the ground running, in a place where very few survive as a rapper.
Named as one of NOISEY’S artists to watch in the “DMV” Washington, DC region, Ezko places listeners at a crossroads asking themselves; do you want to chase your dreams (by yourself), or do you want to chase a paycheck that funds someone else’s dream. (buy yourself)?
It’s definitely worth a listen. Purchase the album here.
