Izreal
Country:United States
Website:http://www.myspace.com/izfocused
Releases:[Izreality TV] [The Standard] [The Focus] [Real Industry : The EP]
Info:Izreal was born and raised in Queens, New York City. His mother is Jamaican and his father is Cuban. He finished high school down in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and made his way to the left coast after leaving the military.

As the MC states: "After the doctor severed my umbilical cord, I was nourished by the streets of Queens, New York. I did not embrace Hip Hop, it sustained me. I hugged my radio many nights to drown out the sound of an abusive father."

Awards
His single,"The Focus" was included on the nationally distributed CD Holy Hip Hop Volume 1, which was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2005. In the same year he also received the Sacramento Black Music Award for "Best Holy Hip Hop Performer".

His music
The MC says about his music: "I really do not believe in categorizing music. If you feel it, its good. If it nourishes you and makes you want to be a better person, its right. If all you ever want to do is dance, then you need to examine yourself.
The outpouring of my soul in music naturally blesses God and gives Him all the glory. God is my source. If I do not mention Him in my music, I would be ungrateful. This music is not "Christian Rap", this is real music. Real to me as I see it and convey it. I pray it blesses you and caresses your speakers once in a while."
