Mixology: Hez

Hezekiah, professionally known as “Hez”, is a rapper-dancer-songwriter hailing from the beautiful city of Newark, New Jersey. At a very young age, Hez’s family knew he was destined to be an entertainer by the way he would joke, dance, and literally entertain his family with his charismatic personality.

Hez has been a natural-born performer since the tender age of five years-old. In his career so far, Hez has recorded and released over 10 singles, and 7 music videos, within the past 4 years. Some include features from other local artists. In 2022, Hez became a founder of his own production company called Static&LowWifi Productions, where his music video and performance services stem from. He has had numerous performances within Newark and surrounding cities. His most notable performance to date happened when he opened for Treach from Naughty by Nature at NJPAC’s Sounds of the City, this past summer.

The future is luminous for this Jersey-bred rising star. Stay connected with Hez and his team as he aims to bridge the generations with his music, all while creating a new sound and look to Hip-Hop as we know it! Check out his new music videos, “You Like Magic” and “Okay, Say Less” streaming on YouTube.
