"Life Is Heavy" #LIH - by Elliott Niezel
My newest album “Life Is Heavy” is special to me in a couple ways. First being because I had the opportunity to reach out and be involved with some really great artists, producers, and all around good people. I look up to a lot of these cats and it was a blessing to have them on the album. Secondly, this album has been a vision of mine for sometime. I believe the vision came to me a little bit after my first album (“Goosebumps”). I wanted to have this album be big – more features, dope hard-hitting beats and lyrics, and deep production. I wanted it to be more above ground, you could say, not classified as “underground hip hop” – more like poetry rap. I feel that the album holds it weight; it stands up to the title “Life Is Heavy” in my eyes. It is a deep album – crazy beats, good topics, and many quotable lines. The album took more time to put together than past projects. Working so hard to put all the pieces of the puzzle together, in a way, brought me closer to the project. Having to harbor my ideas for so long before seeing them come to fruition only made things more meaningful!.

You’ve no doubt heard about the drug dealing or gang member pasts of the biggest names in Hip Hop music – whether their tales of violent street life and crime are 100% authentic or mostly made up for the street cred hype, it’s rarely been portrayed as something to overcome or turn away from, yet that is exactly what California-based Hip Hop artist Elliott Niezel has done.
