Born and raised in East Atlanta and the Thomasville Community, Martineus Anderson, also known as “SIZZLE” gained his musical influence growing up in a house of vocalistS and musicians and a community filled with talented individuals. SIZZLE wears many hats. A businessman first – he began ‘Another Level Media Group’ in efforts to “breathe life back into the music industry.”
Secondly, he is a hip hop artist who says he needs no pen or pad when stepping up to the mic. He feels that this method helps him transmit his true feelings and emotions at the time. Lastly, he is a producer who creates songs that have a pulse and strives to evoke emotions.
SIZZLE is about to unleash his highly anticipated album, “Before I Ignite” to industry and fans alike. He seems completely authentic – he isn’t trying to impress anybody; he’s just doing his own thing, and showing his true talent.
His flows over every single banging beat – which range from gritty and grimy, to polished and smooth – and he has proven that he’s evolved into a real lyricist, as he spits some great metaphorical lines. Whether he’s rapping about his lifestyle, family affairs, relationships or the ills of the world at large, SIZZLE is so on top of his own game that you will only be taken aback by the artist he is.
SIZZLE is bringing back what so many other rappers are not doing anymore and that is storytelling. On a slow-burning introspective track like “Me Myself & I”, SIZZLE is painting pictures that listeners can actually visualize in their minds. You can feel the flaming ire in his gravelly voice, as he confidently lets his thoughts be known.
He is not a one-dimensional rapper who spends an entire album or mixtape talking about how ruthless and invincible he is, but takes time out to explore and acknowledge a variety of themes. Check out the R&B infused “Complicated” as SIZZLE tackles an overheated love-relationship, or the banging, funky soul track “Cali Luv”.
Observe SIZZLE’s smooth player style on his hit single “G.I.G. Get It Girl” featuring Tay, where he comes on very tight. SIZZLE is holding onto a trademark Rap style which acknowledges that the market has Pop music as the top selling genre of entertainment, and he knows how to work this channel without losing credibility or coming off cheap and cheesy – a trait many of his peers have succumbed to.
SIZZLE is a talented artist with substance in his music, and that makes a whole lot of difference in the rap game today. Add to that his production, lyrics, and general thematics, and you will soon realize that SIZZLE is on an elite level.
SIZZLE manages to come with the type of swagger that makes you respect his hustle, and the best thing is he is getting where he wants to be without the help of anyone, as he works through his own label, ‘Another Level Media Group’.
I’m really looking forward to seeing how consistent he can be on the upcoming summer album, “Before I Ignite”, and just how bright his glimmer will shine in the future!
