The storyteller himself, our friend, relative, brother, son, Ryan Peters, has tragically passed away while on a trip to Thailand..
Three words. Old. School. Futuristic. Ushering in a wave of new school rap for Australian Hip Hop fans, Peezo is findingneutrality somewhere between modern-day American sounds and local legend like The Hilltop Hoods and Drapht. 2014 is shaping up as a big one for the former Byron Bay local, with the first installment of his eagerly anticipated Old School Futuristic series
My last name is Peters and my friends used to call me ‘Peezy’ before I was really trying to rap for a career. I was in love with this girl who wanted to be a tattoo artist, so I let her tattoo my nickname on my toes and it really stuck. I added the ‘o’ instead of the ‘y’ cause it sounded cooler.When I’m performing live, my DJ (Northside) and I try to create a fun and entertaining action packed experience. I definitely love owning the space and try not to do the chill Jay Z or Eminem approach, I get really into it.
My biggest influences in the Australian hip hop scene would be my friends like Allday, Cam Bluff, Griffin Brain, Baro Cherie Threads and Northside.
