Bursting onto the Washington D.C. growing hip hop scene in early 2007, Tizzy (a.k.a. Dahvae Akers) is no newcomer to music. Penning his first song when he was only nine years old, the young artist started rapping for fun. He say’s “I wasn’t serious about rapping at first, but people kept telling me that I was good and I should pursue it…”
Following this advice, the young rapper began to study Jay-Z, DMX, Jadakiss, T.I. and other renowned rappers in hopes of learning how to be more lyrical. His homework paid off and by the age of 12, Tizzy improved his rapping abilities and became a serious contender on the local rap scene.
He is influenced by some of his favorite artists including T.I., Jay-Z and Young Jeezy, but Tizzy definitely brings his own unique style to the game. With a swagger you’ve never seen before, complex lyrics and addictive beats, Tizzy is on his way to becoming one of the legendary rappers of our time.
Tizzy remains focused and is grinding in every sense of the word. Stream/Download the latest track from the Washington D.C. native entitled ‘Bitch Bad’ below.
