He recently received a platinum plaque for his involvement on a record with Polo G & NLE Choppa. DME and Rich look to find out how Twizz got to where he is today. He shares that he started producing on his grandmother’s computer back in 2019. He picked up a piano, discovered that he enjoyed creating melodies, and that’s when he realized this was now his passion. After networking with multiple people in the music industry, Twizz was able to get placements with several mainstream artists. Now, he is on his way to LA to begin his college career. If Twizz uses the same tactics he used back home, he will be able to make connections like it’s nothing over in LA. Tap in with Twizz (@prod_twizz) and follow him on his journey!

Any time artists step into the booth with Deevo, they have to flex that lyrical muscle. His most recent project, “Untitled 005” is a true testament of that. Deevo breaks down the Mass music scene and his role in the it. He wants his music to stand the test of time and be a representation of the life he lives. Pass by the SoundLab in Brockton and you’ll most likely find Deevo cooking up. Artists should elevate their craft by visiting the Lab. Tap in with DeevoDaGenius!
