South Central LA artist, Cutty Cortez, is bringing a mix of Hip-Hop, Rap, Rock, and R&B sounds to the music scene. Although Cutty Cortez is able to bring upbeat bangers to the table, he also creates music that’ll make you want to cruise down the highway enjoying the views with your crew. Cutty Cortez’s passion is music because of the way that it has made him feel, and the way that he is able to make others feel. He says, “People get to really see who you are on the inside.”
Cutty Cortez is inspired by the rough neighborhood he grew up in because he was exposed to many things that opened his eyes to the real world. The independent artist explains, “Growing up in the hood you’re always influenced by music. I was in the street life heavy. So you write about what you see or have gone threw. When you grow in a rough environment you become a product of it if you allow it and I allowed it and accepted it with no pump faking.”
Cutty Cortez takes being compared to well-known artists as a compliment. He has been compared to The Weeknd, Drake, Yo Gotti, and Nas, which makes him feel that he is on the path to greatness because they’ve all been Grammy-nominated artists.
He is definitely on the right track! Cutty Cortez is currently cooking up some more projects, and also teamed up with EDM music group, TWSTD ZOO, to release a new single. Cutty Cortez has performed at the Coast2Coast live showcase tour, multiple shows around Los Angeles, and plans to keep performing in 2021.
While some people have chosen to relax during this pandemic, Cutty Cortez has kept grinding! Cutty Cortez dropped, “Polo,” an EP titled, “Blue,” and his most recent single, “Draco,” all this year. Check out the visual for Draco below!
