Levi Zadoff: A Breath of Fresh Air in a Polluted Industry. One of The Last Caring Rap Artists.
Tell us about yourself and your music
Based in the Bay Area of California, he is hoping to use his lyrical versatility and life experiences to break into the mainstream music industry. Levi Zadoff is a firm believer in freedom of artistry, and the idea that music is one of the best tools to communicate. He has a strong passion for the inclusion of lyrical puns and metaphors as a driving force for his sound.
Before he started rapping he was strictly a producer, engineer, and executive producer. He has an ear for a wide variety of sounds, genres, and themes he has cultivated over the years by working with different artists from many cultural backgrounds. Diversity in sounds is something that many artists lack. Levi has something like a 6th sense when it comes to knowing when to break the mold. This is what makes him who he is. For only taking music and the music industry seriously for a short time he has developed a substantial amount of accolades independently before partnering with anyone.
Talk to us more about your latest release
My latest releases have been my two biggest songs. Both of them collaborate with an artist who goes by the name of $ilvuh.
If I’m gonna be real, and you can quote me on this the song “’50s & 100’s’ in my opinion is his song with me as a feature, which honestly I don’t have or see any issue with that. I think the bottom line is this:
In 2018 I released 2 EP’s and in 2019 to today I have an extremely high standard (higher than before when I released in 2018), and the only artist who was able to help me adhere to that standard and match my energy was $ilvuh.
Expect more from me and $ilvuh. In my opinion, he’s better than me at rapping, homie just needs the exposure he deserves.
What inspired you to write this release?
There isn’t an inspiration for my two latest releases.
This isn’t to say I never have any inspiration for my tracks, but I didn’t write or rap about anything ‘real’ or anything out of any self-experience, or anything conceptual on those two songs.
Like, I just went through each lyric, none of them relate to any real-life experiences even in the slightest. I just really like the way they sound.
So really; They were honestly only about the sound and the energy.
Describe the writing and recording process
I always match the individual I collaborate with.
meaning; I go based on what the collaborator writes and his energy most of the time. At least that’s how it was for the song ’50s & 100’s’. with a watch, I gave a bit more direction to the collaboration than I usually would.
Any plans to release a video?
Any plans to hit the road?
Well, I was about to do a UK/EU tour that was going to begin in April if all the negotiations went correctly. But due to the coronavirus that the whole thing canceled.
But I’ve been reached out to many times about either touring myself or opening up for another act on tour over the last year, so there’s a lot of people who are looking to get me on tour, so the second this whole virus thing blows over, I’ll probably be on the road.
As an indie artist, how do you brand yourself and your music to stand out from the rest of the artists out there?
This is very simple:
I do about 75% of people don’t do.
I market myself,
I make merch,
I make a website,
I am myself, and no one else, and it shows
& I curate a unique sound and image.
The only complicated thing I do to stand out is instead of being just a rapper; I’m an executive producer, engineer, and an overall asset to any artist I work with.
To put it simply, you gotta try to be like Jimmy Iovine even though you probably will never reach that level of competence and success.
Who have you been listening to lately?
That list is entirely too long.
Like I listen to everything from The Red Hot Chilli Pepperers to Big L to Polo G to Eminem to The Beatles to Dr. Dre.
What I mean is I listen to music manically and if it sounds good the chances are I’m listening to it.
Who are your biggest influences?
& My Peers
Tell us about your passions
That’s also quite a list;
I’m into lots of things.
I think for the last like 2 years I’ve tried to orient myself only around things that will help the greater good of not only myself but the majority of those who are affected by my actions.
What else is happening next in your world?
I’m spending a lot of time in Oregon.
And I have a Big EP going to drop this year before or during September.
But I won’t share much else as I keep the future on my horizon and no one else’s.
