Ayo Breeze is a New York Hip-Hop recording artist, song-writer, and producer. Born in Crown Heights Brooklyn and raised in Jamaica Queens, his immersion in Hip-Hop began at home. His father, a local radio DJ, gave him a MPC player and by 8 years old he was already making beats.
He became known as Breeze for his natural laid back swagger and signature sound, with its R&B melodies, infectious beats, and positive vibe. “The whole reason for me even following music was to stay out of trouble…” he says. “[When] I was 15 years old I was approached at gunpoint by a guy in an argument in Hollis Queens. I had the choice to calm everything down. That was a changing point for me, in terms of taking life more serious… I have to go a different route, I have to live life. Living life today is what my music is about. ” Shortly thereafter his dad helped him build a studio to begin recording his music.
By high school, Breeze was DJing to make a living and performing as a part of the duo Breeze and SP (currently known as Ayo Breeze x Cheffboy.) The group put out several mixtapes and built a fan-following in the tri-state party scene. Breeze’s first solo album “So Past Done” arrived in 2013. It nods to the 90’s Hip-Hop he was raised on.
Breeze has since grown his solo following as a regular featured artist at New York area mega clubs, including Webster Hall and Amazura Nightclub. In addition, the releases of his often innovative, popular videos – such as “Butt Gettin’ Big,” “What it Lookin’ Like” and “Bounce on it” – through MTV, World Star Hip Hop, BET Jams, Youtube, and Music Choice on Demand, have racked up over a hundred thousand hits.
Today, Breeze is the leader of the Hooked On Money Entertainment (H.O.M.E.) record label and grass roots movement. His highly anticipated second album “Blunts, Money & Women” (or “BMW”) was written after a period of a year living in the South and is the perfect driving soundtrack.
