Feeling a bit camera shy


Visalia, California native izzy DRASTIK can be quite the mixture of un-balanced, yet balanced in parallel times, as much sense, or confusing as they may may come across. He is a true mixture of Hip-Hop, Rap, combined with poetic story-telling and rifts. Inspired by the alternative rock format of music itself, izzy DRASTIK utilizes the power and influence of music to forecast stories that life gives every single day. A believer of being true to oneself, rather than coloring inside of the lines of what society, or even tv and media depicts as what they see fit.

At first glance, some people may seem to have figured it all out that izzy DRASTIK won't sound the way he should, all from opinions based on appearance alone. At first glance any person would notice with their naked eye, his symbolization of his signature... Armpaint. They would notice the cut-out shirt missing both sleeves on each end. They would notice the arm sleeve that looks as if it was stolen from Allen Iverson himself. The ankle socks... And finally, baggy shorts to sum up his attire. We can most certainly understand if izzy DRASTIK gives the perception of looking like he came straight out of a WWE video game, but the perception those same people hold can be turned upside down. Thanks to his very animated stage show, you might suffer from bewilderment and drawn into the idea alone that this guy in particular truly is "Something Else." 

izzy DRASTIK is quite the grinder in his own element. His powerful and animated live shows have landed him alongside a very deep infested talent pool that range from sharing the same stage of artists like Too Short, Hopsin, D-Lo aka Mr. No Hoe, Brotha Lynch, Big Gipp of Goodie Mob, Luni Coleone, Spice-1, Violent J of the Insane Clown Posse, Lil Eazy-E, Outrageous Karina, Twisted Insane, Cryptic Wisdom, Nova Rockafeller, Rappin' 4 Tay, RBL Posse, 2nd II None, Firing Squad, Celly Cel, Insane Poetry, Turf Talk, C Dubb, Mac Mall, Turbin, Outrageous Karina, Mayday! and the list goes on and on in terms of local events all throughout the Central California region/area.

His music has been able to stretch, reaching regions in different countries like the Ukraine, the UK Africa. Even hitting states around the word like New York and Chicago. From the very moment in the year of 2006, sitting inside an adult classroom he had to take for the longevity over the summertime in that year, his music has grown massively inch by inch.

He has spent years fine-tuning trying to discover how to become a master of his craft. But a true master knows that in this career path of a choice, there is always room to grow and improve. Always something new to learn and adjust to. Why do you think Dr. Dre is always distinguishing himself? In other words, Doc fits a whole other category in terms of production and sound not too many people can be seen behind. and somehow discovering some kind of new technique or element in making a better sound. Music is evolving and it will always continue to evolve from what it was, to what it can be.

"It's crazy knowing how far I've come from that moment when I think back to myself sitting in the back of the class acting as if I was studying my homework, when really I was sitting there writing up the most exaggerative rap, that I thought was dope at the time," izzy DRASTIK says. He further details, "It's really crazy and sometimes overwhelming I've started from way back then and the progress reached, is so rewarding. The people I've been able to meet, shake hands, or seen bobbing their head to my music is beyond DOPE!" He added, "There is still much to learn, adapt to & prove. This emotional musical journey is yet to be finished."

Each accomplishment ever seen is only built upon. izzy DRASTIK serves as that firm believer in 'Never allow that taste of success to fool you into thinking that you have arrived. Sure, it's nice to get a taste of the moment, but never allow yourself to become a prisoner of it... Rather, BUILD FROM IT! It is undeniable that izzy DRASTIK is on his way to great feats this life has to offer and with more respect floating his way, he believes it's only a matter of time... Therefore, truly inevitable!
