LOOKin for 04:00
Lookin for, searchin for it I been lookin for, searchin for it I been lookin for, lookin for Lookin, lookin, lookin, for Lookin, lookin, lookin, for Lookin, lookin, lookin, for I been lookin for Don’t know where I’m goin or where the hell I been Don’t know what I did for all the hell I’m in I materialize into a milly grains-a-sand Blowin in the wind don’t know where I’ll land Don’t know who I am, know who I used to be Caramel girl dreams with a vision to achieve... [I been lookin for] Got a soul magnetic and that hustle gon get it Got that 90s Aaliyah that triple-threated That change-the-world mindsetted, really really empathetic Both the body and the brain athletic Now I don’t know, all I got is my flow Hands on the wheel which direction I go? Maybe the answer is just to let go Let it go, let it go, let it go. [chorus] Hungry for next thing, gotta eat my dinner All I need is the race ain’t concerned with the winner Got the speed keep the pace Breezy burn all the sprinters Head down, heart full, go get em It don’t matter that I don’t know This ain’t close to as far as I’ll go Once I find it I’ll let yall know Once I find it I’ll let Breeze blow [chorus] Lookin for, searchin for it I been lookin for, searchin for it I been lookin for, lookin for Lookin, lookin, lookin, for Lookin, lookin, lookin, for Lookin, lookin, lookin, for I been lookin for

male FRAGILTY Tried to change this cold world but That was a mistake Pick my battles - this time got into it at the workplace He was a manager at a gross and hopeless place He had no conception of emotional space He was hatin on a gay man behaving sexist too I communicated the way Michelle Obama do Then he waited til break and he pulled me aside And I did not know what else to do beside... Tell him... SHUT THE FUCK UP I tell him SHUT THE FUCK UP She tell him Breeze tell him Please tell him SHUT THE FUCK UP I tell him SHUT THE FUCK UP Who tell him? You tell him C'mon you tell him SHUT THE FUCK UP I tell him SHUT THE FUCK UP (Hoo) Yeah Yeah Yeah SHUT THE FUCK UP I tell him SHUT THE FUCK UP I tell him Breeze tell him He challenged my take wouldn’t let me go home And I sat there imagining knocking his dome Then he showed up at my building blocked entire lot And I realized he blacked out saw me as a thot Enough of your fuckin fragility Why you fuckin up my capability? My tranquility I can’t find myself When you all up in my shit and I remind myself You’ll get defensive and insecure, hover While I simply state some lil fact bout oppression Then you get embarrassed and quick run for cover Then tantrum a temper from our little session You ain’t confident enough to have a conversation I ain’t mad atcha just a simple observation Too many men serving degradation Standing UP for my WomxnQueerTransFem nation If you’re a dick dude please swallow your pride Fight the toxic MASK-culinity inside Make your demons run and hide, go deal with your shit We AIN’T bout to PUT up with NO more of IT Locked me in a bathroom breathin on my neck You’re getting real aggro What did I expect? Unbuckling your belt with a hyena craze Unzipping your pants got a hard-on male gaze Ain’t no one gone save me, bouncer saw it all Probly watched many women get locked in a stall So I channel my inner mortal kombat moves And I elbow his ribs deep into the grooves GET THE FUCK OFF GET THE FUCK OFF (Hoo) Yeah Yeah Yeah GET THE FUCK OFF I tell him GET THE FUCK OFF (Hoo) Yeah Yeah Yeah GET THE FUCK OFF I tell him GET THE FUCK OFF Who tell him? She tell him Breeze tell him Please tell him GET THE FUCK OFF I tell him GET THE FUCK OFF Who tell him We tell him Lyin everyday with a smile Mechanism built in as a child and a girl God forbid that we live in a place where we ain’t Grateful for nuthin less than oppressed From mind to body to world It been about men but it ain’t anymore Gotta lose expectation of being forgiven No more destruction we need you to learn Keep ya hands off me and all my womxn

FREE Dee 02:57
FREE DEE In hip hop, you got the code of the streets Snitches get stitches, ass gone get beat Ain’t no room for any accountability If you’re a Black man in hip hop, you’re practically royalty There’s a special kind of animosity for Black women Ostracized, banished, punchline of a joke The punishment for seeking justice will make ya choke No air to breathe, nowhere to turn, no water or Coke MC Ren said, “bitch deserved it” reppin NWA Eazy-E said, “yeah, bitch had it coming” Dr. Dre explained, “Somebody fuck with me I’m gone fuck with them… Ain’t nothin you can do now by talking bout it. Besides, It ain’t no big thing - I just threw her through a door.” Now Breeze ain’t gonna continue check internet for more Sista Dee was the homie she was the host of “Pump it Up” Lookin at the glass half full until they went and kicked her cup She was like yo Dre you my bro why you doin this to me? Why you beat me up and ostracize me from the industry? Can’t you see I’m a human being and you being so mean? Now what we sposed to do with this deadly mentality? “It’s okay to hit women” especially darker breeds That’s the message coming through so why nobody see see How fucked up that shit is and the kids they listen and REPEAT And the bag goes straight to Dre and Suge and record company What happened to Dre after beating Sista Dee, who was One half of west coast duo, hip hop’s own Body & Soul You tell me, you got a pair of Dre Beats? Richest producer EVER to come from the streets (besides Jay Z) And what happened to Dee? DEnied reSTRAINing ORder since she out the job anyway Where was the network, where was Ice Cube, where was fucking KDAY? They all turned their heads away The code of silence is violence the men kept courage at bay It’s the SAME SHIT with MJ, OJ, Cosbay, R. Kellay Not just them but all the gatekeepers who didn’t say a THANG There are many institutions of enablers who in on it The culture is protected and sustained like KKK Don’t dismiss it, about this, be RELIGIOUS wit it You gotta check your friends, men gotta check men Out in pu-bl-ic or else it will be your daughter, my friend, Who get pushed out of the republic and meets her fucking end

about

It’s fitting that Breezy has released her second self-produced hip hop project, MuLATTO MADness, on Halloween. The sequel to last year’s melancholic Tragic Mulatto EP, this recent five-track mini album narrates the experience of living as a queer mulatto woman in times of heightened racial and gender violence...conditions for madness. The cunning of this release is that with the musicality of the hooks and the catchiness of the lyrics, Breezy is able to lay weighty themes on ears that can’t help but bob and weave to the rhythm of her beats.

The first track,“LOOKin for” is like driving on the freeway in summer sunshine with the windows rolled down. The gooey sunset synths and R&B vocal mask the air of uncertainty and instability in this opening track. “abOUT me (feat. Loud Lemons)” marks the descent within the narrative slope of MuLATTO MADness. While “LOOKin for” is drifting untethered, “abOUT me (feat. Loud Lemons)” slows down, allowing space to grapple with an intersectional identity. The anguish is punctuated by raspy baritone saxophone from French-Norwegian musician, Loud Lemons. The climax of the album is “male FRAGILITY,” a confrontational track that serves as a chance in new school hip hop for women to release pent-up aggression from the toxic masculinity of early 2000s hip hop. Breezy holds nothing back on the fourth track, “FREE Dee,” which tells the story of former rapper/tv host, Dee Barnes, and the aftermath of being assaulted by Dr. Dre in 1991. “an IsLAND,” is the song takes us out to sea, with the somber piano melody from Nina Simone’s, “Plain Gold Ring” as the lifeline. In the final seconds, Breezy loses her mind as her vocal shorts out and washes away.

Breezy will be performing tracks from MuLATTO MADness at the queer-fem hip hop party BERRIES Berlin and in November, doing a set with DJ/producer, Freak A. Della, at the Afro-futuristic queer-fem festival, Empower Music Fest. MuLATTO MADness is now available on all digital platforms including iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, as well as Soundcloud and Bandcamp for free streaming.
