Nigerian-American Hip hop Artist/Producer, Graphic Designer, Entertainment Lawyer and Motivational speaker with musical roots emanating from South Bronx, NYC. EZ-Q Universe is an Alternative Hip Hop protégé of the Native Tongues Crew of New York (which members included ‘The Jungle Brothers‘, ‘De La Soul‘, ‘A Tribe Called Quest‘, ‘Queen Latifah‘, ‘Monie Love‘, ‘Black Sheep‘, ‘Chi Ali‘ etc). EZ-Q Universe embraces a positive and conscious style of classical hip hop with a touch of soul, r&b, rock and funk.
EZ-Q Universe is set to release his sophomore studio EP Compilation entitled ‘The Soul Lounge’ in early 2021. The EP is slated to be a 3 track compilation with a fusion of jazz, soul, latin soul and alternative east coast hip hop. This project draws inspiration from classic hip hop artists and producers with particular reference to J Dilla, Q-Tip and MF Doom. It is niche specific and targeted to an audience of matured hip hop musical aesthetic taste.
EZ-Q Universe released his debut EP Album entitled ‘Soul Volution’ in 2018 which was largely infused with soulful musical instrumentation and vocals with a clean lyrical rhyme delivery. Soul Volution is like a trip back down to the 1988 – 1995 Big Daddy Kane, Eric B & Rakim, Lord Finesse, Show Biz and A.G. era with sound engineering of the current era. A taste of Soul Volution is like entering into a time machine back into the future.
