Ezzy’s song “Goodbye” comes from the soundtrack of the movie The Land which released during the summer. Billboard released the video today, and you can read their write up below.
Cleveland rhymer Ezzy pens a love letter to the streets and chucks the deuces to his past struggles in the uplifting visual for “Goodbye,” a motivational number off the soundtrack to the independent film The Land, executive produced by Nas.
Here, the 19-year-old MC — who also stars in the flick alongside fellow Clevelander Machine Gun Kelly — shares anecdotes about life in “The Land” while spitting uplifting rhymes. “All the rough times, tough times/I remember gettin’ through those,” he says on the hook. “And for my people still here with me/Promise that I’ma make it for y’all.”
“‘Goodbye’ is a love letter to the neighborhood and the struggle,” The Land director Steven Caple Jr. tells Billboard. “It has the classic hip-hop vibe with fresh lyrics. Ezzy wrote the perfect song for the film, we wanted that feel-good energy that lifts people’s spirits. So to be able to direct the video and collaborate with Ezzy and Rafi — who produced the track in a closet of a hotel — was special. As we share it with the world, it becomes an open love letter.”
Ezzy is also hard at work on his upcoming self-titled EP Ezri. Say hello to the “Goodbye” video below. The Land soundtrack is also available on all digital retailers.
