Over the years, Asian-American music has gained prominence in various scenes. And amongst these other talented artists, Korean-American artist Doctor Yizzle is one to look out for. His journey to pursue music has not been without challenges in an industry where visibility for Asian artists is still limited. But his enduring passion for hip-hop and music has kept him going.

His songwriting journey began during his schooling years. But it was only after his initial dream of becoming the first Korean-American NBA player was dashed by an injury, that he focused more on honing his craft in music. Since then, he has dedicated more time to studying the music industry in-depth and observed how different artists have progressed in the music scene over time. To him, something that stood out was how different artists were able to maintain their longevity.

Doctor Yizzle’s music is distinguished by the raw, authentic energy he injects into each track.  He seeks to convey honest and sincere stories and life experiences throughout his music. He crafts each track with great care, covering topics ranging from loss to healing to manifestation and mental health. “I touch upon every emotion that a human being feels, because I am a human and I create when I genuinely go through things,” he explains. One day, he aspires for his music discography to be rich with quality music that fits every mood listeners are going through.  

When asked about his creative process, he describes it as a spiritual experience where he would lose track of time just creating for 5 hours straight. Feeling connected to the main melody of the beat is the most important step to getting started for him. He’d be carried away from there, creating melodies, writing witty lyrics, and finally polishing the track with other instruments and sounds.

“I enter my own little world where nothing else matters but the music, thus propelling me to truly create from my heart.”
