Nhlanhla Mthethwa (Slam Eazzy) is an aspiring hip hop (rap) artist, record producer and songwriter from Orange Farm, born in Gauteng (Johannesburg) at the Baragwaneth Hospital in 1993 (23). He started realising his talent during his childhood at an early age where he used to write down lyrics of songs that were being played on radio and then rap along with them word for word. Then during high school he started writing down his own lyrics and made freestyles which he used to record on his mother’s phone, this was when he was 15 years old.
Eazzy is also a co-founder of an organisation called #iGD (It’s Goin Down) which deals with music production, beat making and photography. Nhlanhla finished his matric at a local secondary school called Thamsanqa Secondary School then furthered his studies by doing a course in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Johannesburg. Eazzy is currently working with the clique on numerous singles for blowing up and gaining recognition in the media industry which will be followed by an EP that will drop in the year 2016. Within iGD, Eazzy works with upcoming acts like Gee (Gift Sibuyi), Daniel Playy (Sifiso Daniel Ngwane) and Kid Phresh Cardiac Arrest (Shaun Enock Luthuli).
Slam Eazzy has worked with a few local artists that are also still working their way up on a few records for collaborations, while at the moment he is making songs with other artists who are also under #iGD. As an upcoming artist he has been releasing free music online e.g. the 1st song he ever dropped is called 2 AM In O-Town Freestyle which was mixed and mastered by Street Carnivore. Recently he dropped another single called Game Over which was mixed and mastered by Daniel Playy, those are the two songs that have the potential to make it to radio and get airplay. He has been doing some performances at local shows around Orange Farm to build hype and has made appearances on local radio as well.
He believes that hard work and participation is all one needs to succeed as he aims at receiving a Grammy award at some point in his career and also having his music recognised and played internationally.
