Manifesto 2011: Burd & Keyz x Andreena Mill x Bizz [Interview]


Toronto, ON – More exclusive footage from HipHopCanada’s Manifesto 2011 coverage comes your way by way of Stolen From Africa and our Central Canada Regional Editor, Jonathon “Bizz” Brown. In this unedited clip, conversations roll from Burd & Keyz (Producer) and Sean Getti (Director) to David “Click” Cox (Music Executive) to Andreena Mill (Singer/Songwriter) and captures a few interesting statements.

“This is Burd of Burd & Keyz fame and he is the black Leonardo DiCaprio,” Bizz jokes referring to the video for “R.N.T.” that saw Burd waking up on a beach in a suit a la Inception. Click the jump for that video.

“Freedom Writers are for the people. And their music is for the people and that’s something you don’t hear a lot about in this city. I can’t think about too many artists that really speak for the people and are not speaking for themselves,” said David “Click” Cox of On Blast Digital and Stylus Group.

“I’m writing with Universal Publishing right now in New York City. So I’ve just been working on the Trey Songz record, Keysha Cole record, Julie Simpson record,” revealed Andreena Mill who just released All Eyez On Me last month. She also popped up on DMX’s latest single. Who saw that coming?

@ThatsBizz is a Senior Contributor for HipHopCanada and a member of the Central Canada team. The nuts and bolts of Jonathon “Bizz” Brown are impressive, but it’s his ability to apply his skills, identify opportunities, adapt to new environments and get the job done that makes him who he is. An engaging combination of education, experience and vision, Brown continues to make his mark on many fronts and plant his flag as a professional on the rise. Entrenched in the urban music scene for more than half a decade, Bizz launched Crack House Radio in 2004.

Over that time, Bizz interviewed countless artists and professionals including Belly, Bishop, Drake, Classified, Guru, Joell Ortiz, author and gang specialist Michael Chettleburg, Brent (owner of Just Ent) & many others. In 2007, Bizz joined Urbanology Magazine as a staff writer and would go on to contribute dozens of articles over the next three years including a cover story on Classified in 2009. 2007 also saw the launch of Bizz' line of t-shirts reading "Hip Hop Ain't Dead It Lives In The North." Since then, he's toured with Peter Jackson, Busta Rhymes, DJ Dames Nellas, Bishop, Slaughterhouse & Pharoahe Monch and secured a strong following with his column on called "The Fine Print."
