*It’z Ozzy B Baby !!! Ozzy!! When did you decide to do music! What Inspired you ? How did Ozzy B come about ?
I had a deep ear for music ever since I was a kid , used to listen to my dads old records and he threw a lot of parties. So I literally grew up with music. The name Ozzy b came from a British rapper. His was ” Ozzie b”. Thought the name was cool. So as a kid. I made everyone call me that.
*Birth Of Santi !! The Mixtape everyone is currently talking about !!! Very dope mixtape !! Why “Birth of Santi” ?
Birth of Santi symbolizes my journey in music. All the people I’ve met, Things I have experienced , Most importantly sounds I’ve created, all led to the birth of Santi .
*How long did it take to create ” The Birth of Santi” ? What great minds did you work with ?
It’s been three years since the journey started, and throughout those three years. The people I met and the struggles we pulled through . I worked mainly with my producers GMK and Banky and a singer in my crew Retro Dee. LOS played a major role in the Birth of Santi as well.
*From the mixtape, which song did you have the most fun recording and why ?
Every song had a different vibe and experience. Every track was equally as fun but if I had to pick one Zanto.
We just came together one night like it was nothing and Made such a tune.
