FreshNewTracks.com Interviews I.O.U.
Our friends at FreshNewTracks.com had a chance to speak with the NJ hip hop duo about the release of their debut album “The Soul & The Intellect,” what they do for fun, what inspires them, and much more! Below is an excerpt of the interview, and you can read the rest of the article here.
What was the inspiration behind the album?
We wanted to show more of us as individuals, and how we work so well together as a team. We knew we wanted to do something different than our past mix-tapes and show who we truly are on a daily basis as the characters of The Soul & The Intellect.
Who is the soul, who is the intellect?
Buck is the soul child his lifestyle and choices he makes are more as a free spirit. He enjoys smoking, drinking and partying. While Izee is the Intellectual. He makes more rational decisions and while he enjoys partying, he will probably be the designated driver and looking for a nice female to accompany him home.
How did you get into music, and why?
Music for us was always about fun. It was just something to do after school when there was nothing else to do. But after being in the studio for hours, we soon realized this was something that we wanted to get better at. Then it turned into a passion. Then that passion became our hustle. And now we do this for a living and we’re enjoying life more than ever.
