Hayz, the multifaceted artist whose journey started in the small town of Prince George, Northern BC, has just dropped his latest album, As If You Didn’t Know. Raised amidst the urban landscapes of Vancouver, Toronto, and Los Angeles, Hayz’s passion for music served as a constant amidst a turbulent adolescence marked by legal troubles and social challenges.
As If You Didn’t Know is a testament to Hayz‘s resilience and dedication to his craft. The album is a raw and unapologetic exploration of love, desire, and self-discovery, presented with refreshing honesty and authenticity. Hayz’s journey from journaling to poetry and rap by the age of 15 is evident in the lyricism of each track, offering listeners a glimpse into the artist’s soul without resorting to clichés or pretense.
Tracks like “Living A Lie” and “Wednesday Night” showcase Hayz‘s storytelling prowess, weaving intricate narratives that resonate on both personal and universal levels. From late-night rendezvous to grappling with the pressures of fame, each lyric feels like a window into the artist’s psyche, inviting listeners to connect on a deeper level.
Musically, As If You Didn’t Know is a tour de force, with Hayz showcasing his versatility as both a rapper and a vocalist. Collaborations with fellow artists add depth and dimension to the album, offering fresh perspectives and unexpected twists along the way.
