Ezhel Biography

Ezhel is a prominent representative of hip-hop / trap culture in Turkey with a surprisingly fresh lyrical style that is fusing counter-culture and Anatolian city life. In May 2017, he released his first album “Müptezhel” in which he experimentally blends trap, hip-hop and reggae sounds.

Even though this musical genre is not mainstream, his music managed to cross over genres and he became a favorite artist among listeners some of whom normally don’t follow rap music. In June 2018, he released his experimental trap track “Kazıdık Tırnaklarla” (We Scratched with Our Nails) which was recorded in Berlin. Apart from its chart success, the importance of this track is that it symbolizes Ezhel's artistic explosion from Ankara to Berlin, from domestic to international career. The first week of February 2019, his next single “Felaket” (“Catastrophe”) hit the charts, following the release he went on his first European tour of 18 shows and sold them all out.
