We had the good fortune of connecting with Izzauddyn Muhammad ( New York Izz ) and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Izzauddyn, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
I feel that risk taking us very important in life. Not just business You never know what opportunities you may miss on for not taking a risk

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I’m an artist. I produce , song write and perform. I feel like i have a unique sound , clever with my words and passionate with my delivery I most proud about my Balloons mixtape series I started 3 years ago with an idea and today I’m here.
I got where i am today by working hard. Staying determined, staying focus and staying consistent
And it wasn’t easy. It’s hard taking a risk sacrificing and focusing
I overcome the challenges i have by thinking about the cup being half full rather than half empty
I’ve learned a lot of lessons Biggest one is never giving up on what u believe and love
I want the world to know that New York Izz and The Balloons Brand is all about love

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
We go eat first. Maybe blue restaurant lounge or hide Have a few drinks at a strip club since we in Atlanta. I like going to platnium. Was follies but it shut down lol. Being in the studio is where we gonna spend most of the time So yea

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I’d like to thank my family and friends for always supporting me. Chubbie baby for recognizing my talent , Big Gipp for showing love and hopping on a record for nothing That’s love.
