RMZ Keez NataS grew up in a Rastafarian family and lives by most principles adhering to Haile Selassie’s speech about no deity worshipping. He took the oath in his self-expression of 666 which is a movement that promotes self-worship, self-reliance, and the willingness to risk your own life to maintain integrity of the movement. The 666 movement should not be mistaken for devil worshipping as what the numeric abbreviation stands for is, 6 Protons 6 Neurons 6 Electrons, which is the carbon formula best known as melanin. The fact that RMZ Keez NataS has music in his bloodline, is quite obvious from his family tree.
He is the cousin of one half of the popular Birmingham Rap Group Lotto Boyzz, the son of late reggae singer Trisha Irie, and also the cousin of award winning actor and singer, Matt Henry.
The artist started to gain traction in the music business with his debut single “On Lock”, and then confirmed that momentum with the release of the tracks “Demon Bones (Stay on Your Throne)” and “Mannequins”.
RMZ Keez NataS is now back with his brand new track, “Devil Level 666”. It doesn’t take a great deal of scrutiny to tell that the title of this track is meant with deep sarcasm. The first clue would be the cover image staring balefully at the camera pondering on how to defeat negativity and evil this time around.
