The New York emcee battles his demons and wins
If you classify Radamiz solely as a “New York rapper,” you might not fully digest his new project Writeous for what it truly is: the journey of a young Dominican male as he treks through the harsh blows of life, spirituality and love. Anyone can relate to that, as we all find ourselves floating through life struggling with our own demons.
Radamiz tells his story through 11 solid tracks, diving deep into his life and his ongoing development as not only an artist, but also as a person. What sets him apart isn’t his lyricism, but the feeling the music gives you. It’s believable. It’s heartfelt. Each line and track feels like its been carefully tended to. It’s no wonder it took so long to complete.
“Writeous took me four years, because it took me that long to grow as a human being and center myself spiritually and as an artist. I had to slow myself down and take time out to think about who I am as a writer as opposed to how fast the industry moves. Writeous is my expression of self, my opinions, morals, beliefs. I had to make something that truly represented who I am in my life as of now,” Radmaiz explains.
Radamiz’s story takes you through struggles with the loss of friends, the shady music industry, and his feelings on almost losing his mother. Through a number of emotional situations, Radamiz ultimately decided to let his spirit free and into his music.
“I spent so much of my own money and energy making it. Had tearful conversations with my parents, broke down a lot, fought through a lot of doubt and lack of opportunities. I had to grow the fuck up and inspire myself,” he confesses. “I had to break down the doors and let God talk to me.”
This project is the first step in a new duration for Radamiz. Being able to take his experiences and create from them has taught him valuable lessons, which he shares throughout the project.
“Writeous taught me to have patience with things and to put good intentions into everything. How to stay grateful. How to be a fuckin g through bullshit. How to keep my eyes on the light for myself and for those around me.”
