About The Wiz

In the artist’s words: Describe one of your earliest musical memories in detail. My earliest musical memory was freestyling on a cheap and busted headset microphone into my computer during freshman year of college. It was my first rap recording and the beginning of my journey. I like to think those bars still hold up!! What are your top 3 all-time favorite albums on Apple Music, and why? Why did you choose these three albums in particular? Lupe Fiasco, Lupe Fiasco's Food & Liquor Madvillain, Madvillainy N.E.R.D, In Search Of... These three albums best capture my influences and inspirations, from a lyrical, stylistic, and musical level. Madvilliany due to the abstract creativeness, F&L due to the introspection, and NERD because of the vast and varied soundscapes. Find a song of yours on Apple Music that you love and tell us what makes it special. Tell us why you chose this song. “Direction” I knew I wanted to make a song called "Direction" but didn't have the words or the music to go along with it. By God's grace, He led me to the beat on this song while I was driving home from work. I instantly knew this was the beat to use.
