Introducing…  Izzo Flii

NAME: Izzo Flii


SOUNDS LIKE: Mike Shinoda (Linkin’ Park), Tinie Tempah.


LINE UP: Izzo ‘Mazaratti’ Flii

WHAT’S THE STORY?: Izzo Flii (pronounced fly) was born in New York City, Queens raised and Brooklyn bred. The America has been rhyming stateside since around the third grade, speaking with Izzo recently he revealed “When I was young rap got treated like a pipe dream your parents always tell you go for something practical, now even with all the options I have as a college graduate the one thing that’s remained constant, is that I excel at hip hop. My influences range from Biggie to Marvin Gaye, Jay- Z to Fall Out Boy, hip hop to soul and back again. My main goal is to fit no moulds and just be me when it comes to music. Ive done the battling thing since high school but I prefer to piece things together tell a story, or let the story tell itself depending on how you look at it.” Izzo has also been in the top 5 unsigned acts on for over a month now.

RELEASES: Flii Summer Nights, Diig D33p, Diig D33p 2: The Abdomen Coming soon

GIGS: Catch Izzo at different showcases and open mic nights throughout New York, notable venues played at include Club Element and The Public Assembly.

THEY SAY: My name is Darnell Howerton a.k.a Izzo Flii. Music is my power, its my love, its what i’m good at.

WE SAY: Izzo states that life is his inspiration from fights on the street, to anime and comicbooks and this reflects in his music. His lyrics are creative and edgey, they tell a tale that only someone who has really lived could write. His music showcases the kind of raw talent and excitement that we now treasure on this side of the pond, the talented New Yorker would seem far from out of place alongside chart occupants Dizzee Rascal, N-Dubz, Professor Green and the likes. Check out tracks ‘American Dream’ and the wonderfully dreamy ‘Ease Your Pain.’ It’s not often I would introduce an American act but if fate should have it, it wont be long before Izzo Flii graces Britain’s blossoming urban scene.
