Bee-Z is a talented artist making his name known from Grand Rapids, Michigan. Currently studying Mechanical Engineering, Bee-Z finds time to make contemporary hip-hop music. Bee-Z has been fine-tuning his craft for years but it wasn’t until college when he found a producer to mix and master his tracks that he truly got started. Not only is Bee-Z a gifted singer/songwriter but he also plays the trumpet in a jazz band. With his new track “Mulan” Ft. Kojau out now, Bee-Z is still developing his sound and crafting his artistry.
“Mulan” Ft. Kojau produced by Don Oz, is an eclectic new track from Bee-Z. On top of what is a gorgeously colorful and partly organic soundscape, Bee-Z offers up a beautifully uplifting melody-line that’s surprisingly refreshing and addictive all at once. In addition to the likeable groove of the music, the song’s concept offers a fine balance between personal truth and a generally accessible level connection. Bee-Z seems genuinely lost in the moment throughout the recording, he carries the bar well and makes certain to hold your affection without screaming out for views or throwing in anything irrelevant just to add volume. Bee-Z is an impressive artist with a natural connection to the genre and performance on the whole. We can’t wait to hear more!

How do you manage to successfully fuse so many genres into one cohesive sound?
I grew up listening to a lot of different genres of music: hip hop, rnb, rap Afrobeat and even Jazz... So it’s only natural that I would like to fuse them in my sound. Otherwise it happens almost unconsciously.
Tell us about the lyrics in “Mulan”! What inspired this song?
This song is very unique to me. I named it Mulan right when I heard the beat, usually the name of the song comes last for me. The name pretty much shaped the song and the rest just fell in place. And no, it wasn’t inspired by my personal experiences.
What has been one of your most memorable or life-changing achievements as an artist so far?
Like I said I started off just playing the trumpet. So one day after I played a song on my trumpet at my home church in Nigeria, a girl came up to me with her eyes filled with tears and she hugged me saying thank you for playing. I feel like that moment changed me. The fact that my music has that much impact on people. I feel like that’s why I still make music and I don’t plan on stopping.
What are your main aspirations as an artist going forward?
Honestly I don’t know. I’m just doing what I love and I hope my music will touch the lives of a lot of people someday.
What other projects are you working on through the end of 2019?
Expect completely new sound. Some singles and collaborations with kojau and a lot produced by Don Ozi.
