Heightz, a Dominican rapper from Washington Heights, has released his first single "Journey" from his album Defibrillator, which is due to drop in March.
Go here to watch the video for the song.
Heightz is titling his EP Defibrillator because he feels like music makes him feel alive again. Having endured a rough childhood, being brought up with his dad in and out of jail, he and his mother were bouncing around a variety of shelters. With a basketball scholarship in the works, Heightz was ready to get off of the streets of Washington Heights, but a knee injury prevented him from doing so. He takes all of his frustration about life's curveballs out in his loud, heavy hitting music.
Heightz spent time writing music with an artist signed to Sony Records, which was where he was introduced to Nas who encouraged him to continue rapping.
