Musikscribe: Let’s hop right into this latest LP, Hood Mona Lisa — Conceptually, what does this title represent both to and for you? 

BreezyLYN: To me, Hood Mona Lisa means being a product of your environment and turning it into art. Taking the struggles and experiences and turning them into masterpieces.

Musikscribe: As a lyricist, when you sit down to pen your rhymes where do you draw inspiration from? 

BreezyLYN: I usually draw inspo from what I’ve been feeling or thinking about, maybe experiences, or maybe just how the beat makes me feel.

Musikscribe: Reflecting, tell me your whole inception into music -- When did you first become interested in it? And, how did it all begin for BreezyLYN?  

BreezyLYN: I was interested in music since being a child, I was always on YouTube listening to music and watching lyric videos. At about 8 or 9 years old, I was doing freestyles with my uncles and cousins just for fun but I was really good. At 12 years old, I started writing raps about things I would go through and my feelings, it’s been therapeutic since then. In 2022, I finally released my first single “Bad Bitches” and I’ve been viral ever since.

Musikscribe: Now you’re a native of Brooklyn, correct? So growing up in ‘Breukelen,’ who all did / do you consider to be your strongest musical influences?      

BreezyLYN: Growing up in Brooklyn, the strongest influences in music had to be Jay-Z, Biggie, Lil’ Kim, Foxy Brown and Fabulous. 

Musikscribe: In having said that, how do you classify your overall sound and / or style?  

BreezyLYN: My overall style / sound in music is sexy, raw and real.

Musikscribe: Switching gears here, what exactly do you want people to get from your music?       

BreezyLYN: I want people to be able to relate to my music and feel good. 


Musikscribe: If you could collaborate with any one artist, living or dead, who would it be and why?        

BreezyLYN: Meek Mill, Summer Walker, Fridayy, Drake.

Musikscribe: If you could play any venue in the world, which one would you choose and why?        

BreezyLYN: So far, it’s Rolling Loud just because I haven’t done it yet and I feel like once you do Rolling Loud you dead lit…but once I do that, I’ll have a new answer for you.

Musikscribe: On a more serious note, are you happy with the current state of Hip Hop? 

BreezyLYN: I’m loving the current state of Hip Hop because the women are taking charge and getting way more love and acknowledgement. Also, because I’m now involved.

Musikscribe: What do you feel has and will continue to be the key to your longevity?        

BreezyLYN: I feel like consistency, versatility and creativity will be the key to my longevity. 

Musikscribe: Do you have any other outside / additional (future) aspirations, maybe even completely away from music?

BreezyLYN: My other additional aspiration would probably be modeling for big brands.

Musikscribe: To date, what has been your biggest career moment(s), at least thus far anyway?        

BreezyLYN: My biggest moments would have to be performing at the Barclays with Lola Brooke and performing at A Boogie’s tour. 

Musikscribe: What’s an average day like for you?

BreezyLYN: An average day for me is staying home – watching movies, eating and just relaxing.

Musikscribe: Please discuss how you interact with and respond to fans... 

BreezyLYN: I literally treat my fans like I’ve known them for years. I call them my BAEs, they show me so much love. I love all my loyals who’ve been supporting from the start, and I love the newcomers!

Musikscribe: What is your favorite part about this line of work? Your least favorite? And, why? 

BreezyLYN: My overall favorite part is being in the studio. My sessions are very intimate and very therapeutic. It’s like I get a peace of mind in there and I’m able to talk about anything. My least favorite part is the lack of sleep because I’m a very sleepy girl.

Musikscribe: What advice would you have for someone wanting to follow in your footsteps?

BreezyLYN: The advice I have for anyone following my footsteps is believe in yourself, block out all doubts, stay tunnel vision and remember what you’re doing it for. 

Musikscribe: Looking ahead, say five or maybe even ten years from now, where do you see yourself?     

BreezyLYN: 5-10 years from now, I wanna be a multi-millionaire mogul with a son, stunting. 

Musikscribe: As for the immediate, what's next for BreezyLYN? 

BreezyLYN: More music, more videos, more shows and more collabs.

Musikscribe: Is there anything I left out or just plain forgot to mention?
