Kitchener rapper Pizzy Only’s brand of aggressive, brooding trap is both distinctive and hypnotic.

With releases on popular upload sites SoundCloud and Datpiff stretching back as far as 2012, it’s easy to say that Pizzy has been in the game for a longer period than most. Through his obvious vocal command and his ability to craft a song, his dedication is immediately apparent.

His distinctive style emerged on his 2015 mixtape DEATHxDONTxDISCRIMINATE but a more recent release — SoundCloud exclusive EP “NEVER ENDING RAGE” — doubles down on his signature style and sees the rapper perfecting his craft over hard hitting production from CAPGOD, Eggy, FLAMEE.

2020 will surely mark a shift in momentum in the local rap scene, seeing how both Pizzy and collaborator CAPRICE SOLÉIL have been crushing shows and spreading their wares on different platforms.

Look for their collaboration “KNOTS” on all platforms, as well as Pizzy’s first single to hit streaming platforms, Propane. It’s gearing up to be a big year for both of these artists.
