What’s the meaning behind your name?
An Uzi is a submachine gun that fires 600 rounds per minute. Lord knows why my closest friends call me this.
What other names have you had?
Which song of yours would you first want people to hear?
Probably Uzzee’s Lament. It sums up my general state-of-mind quite nicely.
Who was your Hip Hop idol growing up?
2Pac. All Eyes On Me was the soundtrack to my life.
Which musician would you most like to work with?
Either Kid Cudi, Steely Dan or Mike Shinoda. For so effortlessly breaking boundaries and elevating music to another level. The ultimate goal.
If you weren’t making music, what would you be doing instead?
I’d probably be doing what I still continue to do. Which is design clothes. Or maybe I’d be a freedom fighter.
What’s success to you?
Success can be many things. One being when one exceeds self-imposed expectations and goals, and continues to maintain success through them. Evolution.
Which country produces the best food and women?
Whoa. That is the hardest question ever. But as a connoisseur of both I’ve got to go for Germany. Rindfleish with an Ingrid or Mona is an unbeatable combo.
What’s your vice?
What’s your favorite animal?
Dogs! I have a little Jack Russell called Ying.
