The challenges of gaining recognition and respect as a musician can many times come down to originality and independent success. Isaiah Wallace, a Chattanooga Tennessee local and Hip-hop artist going by the name Justzai is on this path as an Intendent artist.
This teen began recording at the age of 12 and has been making music ever since. He currently works out of Breaker 17 Studios under the mentorship of Abdias Joga. Though not signed by a label, Justzai has seen success reaching over 100,000 Spotify streams. He hopes to make his mark on the Hip-hop industry with his new, fun, and fast music. His upcoming album titled Here We Go Again brings a new flair to many of the known styles of Hip-hop.
Justzai hopes others will see the steps he takes to move the industry forward and recognize that “even if you can’t find your comfort zone you can make a new one”. This message is one that grew from his struggles growing up in the inner city of Chattanooga (a place he makes strides to better every day). The love he has for his home is evident in his regular walks around the neighborhood before a studio session and his favorite rooftop writing spot overlooking his city.
