We asked Ize to tell us all about his favourite mixtape. He picked an album, but it’s a classic so we’ll let him off! Read on to see what he picked…
What’s your favourite mixtape ever?
If I was to choose a favourite mixtape, I’d have to go with Pop Smoke’s ‘Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon’. I can’t lie, that album came in heavy still.
Where exactly were you when you heard the mixtape for the first time?
I remember I was on the way to Amsterdam for a holiday. I had a long drive there, like a four-hour drive or something and I had the album on repeat, like the whole way.
Did it come into your life at a significant time?
I can’t lie, it came in at a good time for me because it was summer and I was taking a little trip out on holiday. I just really really fucked with it during that time.
Describe the mixtape in three words?
I’d say different, hard and definitely career-changing.
What song is your personal favourite?
I’d say ‘Mood Swings’ featuring Lil Tjay.
If you could put a price on this mixtape, how much would you pay?
You can’t put a price on that one I think. It’s 100% one of the best mixtapes I’ve ever heard.
Did you have a physical copy?
No, I just downloaded it on my phone.
No? Which is your favourite that you have a physical copy of?
Probably ‘Get Rich or Die Tryin’ by 50 Cent, back in the day!
