Sozay Raps His Way Into Playhouse Hollywood
When Sozay first came out, guests were busy networking and mingling around the bar while enjoying hors d'oevres and drinks. However, once he began to perform, audience members slowly began flocking to dance floor surrounding the stage to listen to his performance. The venue provided a setting that allowed Sozay to connect with his audience while performing what was ultimately the story of his life and journey to music. Prior to pursuing his career on stage, he spent time in prison and struggling with substance abuse. His passion to live a better life and to raise his children in a positive environment is palpable when he speaks and when he raps.
Will he be the next big rapper? He has a long way to go. However, his stories and his messages are much more humbling than much of the arrogant lyrics on the hip hop and rap charts today.
