Biography

How many emcees can EQUALLY claim respect from Harcore Hip-Hop fans, as well as the Hipster Rap/Club scene??? Not that many!!! With that said, here stands Buddy Leezle (pka Buddy Leroy). Leezle would OFFICIALLY begin his musical career with Atlanta Hip-Hop supergroup, BROADY CHAMPS along with MARQ SPEKT (INVIZZIBL MEN), HUEY P. CAPONE (pka N.Y.C.E.), POINT GOD, and GOLDEN SCHOLAR.

B.C. has self released numerous projects, and saw their OFFICIAL studio album, BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS" released thru MF GRIMM'S DAY BY DAY ENT. in 2006. Towards the end of this era, our hero would begin experimenting with Electronic music courtesy of producer extraordinaires BRETT ECLECTIC and COPATONE.

In search of new inspiration, B.L. would move to Austin, TX in early '04 where he would annihilate shows on the solo tip, until briefly linking with mystical TX emcee/producer JUST BORN (aka COOLEY FLY). As LOS OJOS DE DIOS, they would go on to perform over 30 shows with acts including KILLAH PREIST, SHAPESHIFTERS, and iCON THE MIC KING. Before departing ways on amicible terms, they would release a legendary untitled street album. During this time, Leezle would also work with San Antonio formed/ATX based label CULTURE SOUND RECORDS. He would release a critically acclaimed solo album titled, "THE INTROSPECTRUM" with inhouse producer JAZ INFINITE and a mixtape with crew GALAXY HIGH (ASSASYN DYNASTY, AMORPHOUS, CEREBRAL VORTEX, smaals culture, and LOU ONE). In between all this gulliness the Leez would also delve DEEPER into working with Electronic music producers such as DIMLITE (Sonar Kollectiv), FULGEANCE (Musique Large), BFLECHA (Arkestra), CURTIS VODKA, and more.

Before relocating to his current home in San Francisco (2006), he would form 215:THE FRESHEST KIDZ with CEREBRAL VORTEX.
