When it comes to cool names, there’s no doubt that AZitiZ (AS IT IS) a native of New Orleans, is a master. Derived from the subtitle of the ancient Sanskrit classic, Bhagavad Gita As It Is. The phrase, AZitiZ means the unadulterated truth.
Growing up, AZitiZ went to school in Florida to an all girl's spiritual boarding school where the girls learned yoga, meditation & practiced strict vegetarianism. With the school, she traveled the world, including India , doing theatrical performances and music. Over the years, her music excellence became apparent as she mastered different styles of drumming. AZitiZ has always been attracted to percussion and drums, so after school she went to study at Ali Akbar College of Music in San Rafael, California and also lived in India for eight months, to further her study of percussion.
When she returned to the states, AZitiZ heard hip hop, fell in love with it and was inspired by Queen Latifa, Lauryn Hill, Erykah Badu & Missy Elliot. From here, her music took a totally different direction. Compelled by the flowy, rhythmic rhymes of hip hop, she found her niche. Now, she’s ready to explode on the scene with a fresh new sound.
AZitiZ isn't content to leave the music world as it is. This is an artist ready to leave a crater – that is, she's gonna make an impact. Her evocative blend of hip-hop and soul elements ride an electric line along the cutting edge of urban music creativity. At the same time, she keeps a grip on the staple elements in which the genres are rooted. Catchy doesn't even begin to describe the hook-heavy infectiousness that pull the listener into a world of vital words and potent grooves.
