“It’s like an adrenaline rush. When I go on stage, when I see the crowd, it thrills me. It’s my life. It’s my life to be an artist, ”said Blayzee.

Blayzee’s love for hip-hop has been a dream for decades.

“That night I felt like a part of me died too. And I never got any therapy or the help I needed and wrote this song, Suicide Awareness, and I just felt like this was the right thing to do. I just need to get my point across and try to help people the best I can, ”explained Blayzee.

But if you keep believing and keep pushing and grabbing the opportunities that are presented to you, you will get there. You will make your dreams come true, ”she said.
