Mkali Magazine: Let’s talk about “Gunz Down.” What inspired you to write this song?
E Dubzz: I don’t have anything against guns. I just believe they shouldn’t be used recklessly. Guns shouldn’t be used to kill or hurt innocent people. They should be used to protect.
His lyrics are meaningful and remarkable. His passion for Justice and Humanity, motivates him to strive and become the best version of himself. The artist truly wants to spread light to those whom are suffering. “My advice to other up and coming artists is; keep thriving, even if they think you’re wack. Don’t let one hater stop you”, insisted E Dubzz. He believes the reason why there’s lack of support within the up and coming artistic community, is because some people don’t want to see others blow up before them. “I believe it’s very important that we all support each other. Doesn’t matter who makes it first and who doesn’t, as long as you show loyalty, it will come back to you“, he declared. The year 2020 should be an exciting year for all E Dubzz fans.
