How did you come by your stage name?
Working with a British crew, I got given the nickname “Mazzington” which progressively evolved into Mazza or Maz. I remember them being around when I first started to record my demos so it’s a bit of a tribute to them!
To what or whom do you accredit your sense of style?
I’d say that I’ve always kept an eye out for new styles, new drips, and new flows so I’d say thanks to my curiosity and thanks to all the people who did share theirs with me, it’s a combination of curiosity and the people you’re surrounded by.
What are your plans for the near future?
I’ve now dropped my last single for this Summer and we’re closing on this 1st year of dropping music constantly so I’ve now acquired enough data and feedback to adjust my artistic direction to come back with a stronger and more defined identity. There are many projects lining up for the end of this year and I’m really excited to be working on it again!
Is there anyone you’d like to thank, any shoutouts?
I’d like to thank my man Enes Suleman who gave me all the tools to understand my capacities and make them evolve. He’s also the one who taught me how to properly write, record, and appreciate music better and I can never be too thankful for that, truly this ain’t something that everyone can teach you. So yeah, shout out to my man Enes!
What suggestions do you have for other artists like yourself?
Never give up, this ain’t a sprint, this is a marathon. You may find your musical identity in a month or in 2 years, there’s just no science for that. You need to explore as much as you can to unleash your full potential. Don’t give up!
