Eman started getting serious about his music career in 2016. The following year he released his first album “Ozi,” named after his son, who serves as the inspiration for most of his music.
“Our youth are so important,” Eman told us. “These struggles and injustices have been going on for generations. I have to try to make things better for him.”

Eman’s next album, entitled “Eazi 92,” will feature “Call to Action” and is set to release later this month. While the songs will explore a variety of topics, social justice will be a unifying theme.
“I’m hoping people will realize that Black and Brown people need love and respect,” he told us. “Enough is enough. We’ve been ignored and looked over. We need real change and justice.”
