Rising Croydon rapper BZ has released his first single of 2023, 'Get Paid' with accompanying visuals seeing BZ playing the role of The African Robin Hood, a heroic outlaw who sets out to provide for his community as the song's message of elevating those around him plays out poetically.
'Get Paid’s' golden era beat provides a retro, Wild West backdrop for BZ to flex and lay everything bare, showcasing his true rap capabilities.
BZ’s earliest music memories are from growing up in Church surrounded by Gospel music. He then started expressing himself through spoken word poetry from a young age, leading to him freestyling at school at any opportunity. It wasn't until a close friend offered to pay for a studio session that BZ’s whole world changed, and from then on, everything became about music. Still, early on in his journey, he has faced impactful highs and lows, driving him to almost quit music for good. BZ cites a career-affirming show overseas that reminded him exactly why he is destined to be a musician, and he hasn't looked back since.
BZ is currently sitting on an abundance of new music and is ready to redefine what it means to be a rapper in 2023. BZ has an unwavering devotion to his craft, lacing his rhymes with his mob boss mentality, remaining consistent and unmatched. He set the bar high in 2022 with his single ‘2 G’s’, which featured on Top Boy, and his two ‘Mixtape Madness x Next Up’ freestyles which have been widely acclaimed. He has started 2023 on a high, having been supported by numerous tastemakers,
The UK rap scene is poised in anticipation to hear what is next from BZ and this release is proof that he is ready to switch up the game.
