On Message to Her, Breezy tells the story of a woman who’s been neglected by her lover. Alternating between the woman’s perspective and his own, Breezy offers words of encouragement that are as tender as his vocals: Pick your head up, baby, know you got a purpose. Inspired by a direct message he received from a fan who wanted him to sing a story she couldn’t tell on her own, the song is both a literal embodiment of his mission to provide musical therapy for fans across the globe. The comments most shared from listeners are how the felt every word and that the song hits hard, As Breezy prepares his new project, Catch a Breeze, he’s just at the beginning of exploring this sensitive side of himself more fully.

3Breezy has only been making music for around a year, but already has a growing legion of fans ensnared by his crooning, hazy confessionals, and uplifting aphorisms. Raised in Pennsauken Township, New Jersey, he grew up surrounded by sisters and aunts and did a lot of listening, the background soundtrack for Message to Her and his understanding of both a man and a woman’s perspective — a born shoulder to lean on.

Gifted with a reassuring baritone and the empathy of someone who listens more than he speaks, 3Breezy colors in tales of heartbreak and healing with smoky melodies and wide-eyed sincerity, creating optimistic anthems for lost souls in search of happy endings. After debuting his first song in October of 2020 he began a consistent pattern of releasing singles & his debut mixtape Murda She Wrote. His sincere lyrics and detailed story-telling quickly captivated audiences across Tik Tok, YouTube, & locally. Through his music 3Breezy hopes to uplift, empower, and spread positivity through crooning his hazy confessionals, and uplifting aphorisms.

Breezy’s burgeoning rap career was born from a global catastrophe, a dream deferred, and bad weather. Raised in Pennsauken Township, New Jersey, the man born Nihee Wesley could see peers embracing the negative influences in the neighborhood, but he mostly kept to himself and steered clear of trouble in the process. By the time Breezy graduated, he planned on becoming a veterinarian technician, he realized he liked working with animals. Another reason was because I didn’t like working with people, he recalls with a laugh. After going to college for two years to get his vet assistant certification, Breezy was set to take on a job in his field. Then, the COVID-19 pandemic began and he was unable to do so.

One rainy day, after playing video games got old, Breezy noticed a TikTok user who said he’d recorded a song through his phone. After checking out the song and deciding it sounded pretty good, he downloaded GarageBand to his phone and got to work himself. Spitting over a dreamy guitar line, Breezy recorded his first song, the free-associative and casually braggadocious Kiss My Automatic. After creating the tune, he called his friend over to his house to see if he was hearing it right. After getting the cosign, he posted it to his TikTok account, which already had a sizable following, and proceeded to rack up likes and comments. Seeing the response to the song, Breezy began to consider new career possibilities. That was like one of my biggest videos I posted on TikTok,; he recalls. I’m like, What if I took this seriously?

By 2021, Breezy got his answer when he signed to Capitol Records and released Murda She Wrote, which, it should be said, he recorded entirely through his iPhone. While the first song he ever made was smooth for a debut, Murda She Wrote showcase a crystallized version of 3Breezy, one who’s not afraid to veer from the boasting to instead embrace his sensitivity. Growing up in a house with his aunts, he’d hear stories of their trials and tribulations in romance, and he’d get advice from his great-grandmother on how to speak to women. Songs like Message to Her and Mental Love reflect that upbringing. On newer releases like Move On and Message from Breezy (a spiritual sequel to Message to Her), he’s only doubled down on his emotional explorations, which heߣll surely continue to do on Catch a Breeze.

While he refers to himself as the voice of the heartbroken now, there was a time when he was afraid to embrace his emotions in song. I always had a thing for making this type of music, but I never really posted it because I didn’t want my homies to be like, Bro, why are you making this soft music? Nobody wants to hear you in your feelings, Breezy says. The second I stopped giving a fuck what anybody else thought and did what I liked is when I started seeing progress.
