Biography


According to the Urban Dictionary, when something is both dope and easy it’s “deezy”. Rap artist Half Deezy has been in the game long enough to know that in today’s world there’s really nothing in life that’s easy all the time; therefore his stage name Half Deezy. And the journey, well, what a long, strange trip it’s been.

Coming from a military family he spent his early years bouncing from city to city across the U.S.A. trying to find a place he could call home. Africa ter his father left the service his final stomping grounds was Las Vegas NV or better known as “Sin City”. By the time he turned 19, Half Deezy had fathered a child. While music was his first priority he decided to serve in the US Army in order to provide for his baby daughter.

Serving in Iraq he was forced to endure the thunder of mortar shelling one of the many unrelenting ravages of war. Completing his tour of duty Half Deezy returned to the states, but not completely unscathed. Diagnosed with Intermittent Explosive Disorder (Depression/Anxiety and adjustment disorder) the artist now uses his music as a form of self-therapy and a coping mechanism to deal with that crippling condition. Each and every day is a battle.

Fallen King Records (derived from the idea that all men are kings, who though eventually fall, will remain eternal through death) was formed by fellow rapper Kray as an independent label. 

Half Deezy is an artist who was fortunate enough to have worked with legends like Spice 1, Bizzy bone of Bone Thugs N Harmony, someone who was featured on tracks with Daz & Kurupt of DPG (Dogg Pound Gangstaz), or Layzie Bone, and blessed enough to open up for the legendary group Bone Thugs N Harmony on their 20th Anniversary tour. He has the hooks and the beats. Most importantly he has an unmistakable identity.

Now, after almost ten years of military service Half Deezy is hanging up his uniform to make music a full time job. To paraphrase a speech from the late, great General Douglas MacArthur: Old soldiers never die, but an artist like Half Deezy sure as hell’s not going to fade away anytime soon.”

Written By: Ian Vandiver

First Verse.

Waking up and I'm feeling good,
Cuz I'm getting paid,
Pockets hella fat,
Hatas fade away, cant believe aint no coppas rolling out today
I must have died and went to heaven cuz I'm feeling great,
Didn't know that there'd be days like this where I can wish upon a star and now I'm

My whole cliques feeling lovely plus they never knew that money came so easy we
popping bubbly ain't no time to waist, lets get right hit the club roll up loud and
make it ours right, fresh cut with kicks that match the clothes, got my money and I
didn't even do it selling dope,
Just wrote a rhyme and now I'm selling out the records store and the radio your
ladies favorite yo,
And I don't know I'm just trying to spread the feeling though, split the Philly, fill it up
with the killa and away we go.

Hook x2.

It's a good day, aint nobody stopping that,
And this is pay day rolling with my pockets fat go ahead and get whatever you want
its on me,
And if I'm broke by the end of the night its all G,

It's a good day, aint nobody stopping that,
And this is pay day rolling with my pockets fat go ahead and get whatever you want

And if I'm broke by the end of the night its all G,

Second Verse.

We hit the club like it's a video,

Balling like I'm hustlen homie they get the visual,
Feeling so gone from the liquor I'm barely standing though,
Women are calling every minute wanting me to get them home,
I just smile and passem drinks so we can hit it off,
Aint no way them hattas are stopping me I brushem off,
Its all good no way their fucking up my vibe at all,
You wanna roll hop into the vehicle we taking off,
High in the clouds when I ride our eyes are almost closed,
Open up the door the smoke is rolling out thick, but we don't care because we

And I'm spend it to the last penny,
But they don't get it how we living our dreams,
Cuz I came up from the gritty,
That's why we're living like its our last night, its time to party hard,
Calling up my homies cuz we buying out the bar and it's a good day.

And this is pay day rolling with my pockets fat go ahead and get whatever you want
its on me,
And if I'm broke by the end of the night its all G,
