Q&A With Onzieb
Apr. 17, 2021
What can you tell us about your latest release?
My latest release is titled "Beautiful." It talks about the importance of accepting yourself, and embracing the "real you" which is something that I personally can relate to.
What does your name mean?
The name "Onzieb" was formed from my actual name LOL! My real name is Onzie, and my last name starts with the letter b. I got the name from my great-grandfather, who I think would be proud of how I carried on the family name!
What first got you into music?
I remember when I was 12 yrs old, and I first heard the "Ruff Ryders Anthem." My first thought was that the song is so dope, and the beat was everything! I wanted to make beats like that, and I asked my parents to buy me a keyboard. It was a small, Yamaha keyboard, and I fell in love with it! The moment I got it, I was able to play the melody for the "Ruff Ryders Anthem!" Fast forward to today, I can hear that song today and fall in love with music all over again!
