Yep, I'm from Seven Mile Rd and GreenfieldWhuddup Doe!! My first inspiration to get involved in the industry was when I found out that nobody heard of any Detroit rappers outside of Detroit ( Michigan). My first gig was with a friend (“T”) that I assisted with promoting Cam’ron back when he was a lil chunky in 1997. From there I found what my purpose was supposed to be. My all time fantasy career was to become a quarterback for the Atlanta Falcons. Once that dream was cut short from not getting the response back from -tryouts and competition over the years. I became hooked on music and brand marketing. HISTORY My history includes affiliations & working with Crunk Energy Drink, Ozone Magazine (Detroit Rapquest), Murder One Clothing, On Tha Real Magazine, Mafia Magazine, Yeyo Tequila, Def Jam, (The Ying Yang Twins,Stat Quo, DJ PAUL, 4-IZE, Nappy Roots, MC Lyte, Da Muzicians, Young Tone, DJ Source - The German Giant all on The DAM MIXTAPE) ,Lil Jon, BXC, Bohagon and several Indie and underground artist.

Young Jeezy had took to Twitter to threaten to leak his album himself if his label Def Jam continue to 'keep playing games'. The Atlanta rapper is promising to release his fifth studio album, titled The Statue of Limitations Is Over, but his label Def Jam appear to be stalling on the project. Jeezy took to Twitter telling Def Jam they are "playing games" and that his fans will get "an early xmas gift" if they don't get a move on. The rapper specifically blamed Universal Music Group CEO Lucian Grainge and Island Def Jam CEO Barry Weiss for his woes. for his actions What do you think of this and what will become of it ? Is Young Jeezy right or wrong for his actions? Many upcoming artist are eager to get signed -- but reality is, this is what you will face if dealing with the wrong group of individuals. Not saying DEF JAM is wrong or right.. No one knows the true story behind what is going on . At the end of the day - who really owns the album ?
THE TWITTER RANT
DETROIT BRAWL DoughBoyz CashOut member HBK and about four others at Cobo Hall on Wednesday night. HBK was knocked out and his chain necklace stolen. He was kicked while unconscious.
←Pictured wearing the Chain… East-side rappers IceWear Vezzo and Green Guy Webbie took credit for the beating.
DoughBoyz CashOut, includes Payroll, Doughboy Quis and Doughboy Dre, are known for their lyrical tales of street life, money and making it big. Earlier this yearDoughBoyz Cashout got put on by signing a deal with Young Jeezy’s label, CTE World. Wednesday before Thanksgiving attack triggered candid social media comments about retaliation. People on the outside looking in just don’t know - and speaking on what “they” would do. It was a bad move on their part to jump HBK.. Its all need to be said.
WHO IS “ICEWEAR VEZZO” ???
Icy… Straight from the hard-core streets of Detroit, MI’s eastside Chivez “Icewear Vezzo” Smith always knew he had a unique talent that could pave the way for Detroit Street Rap. Born October 31,1989 with 19 brothers and sisters, Vezzo didn’t have it as easy as most kids would, he knew he had to make a way and he did just that. At the age of 15 Vezzo joined forces with Green Guyz, which originated in Minnesota where a handful of his siblings grew up, forming his own entity of the group in Detroit. As one, they made hit records like “I cant tell” and “Boss Up B—h”. It wasn’t long before Vezzo saw an opportunity to break out into his solo career. August 2012 Icewear Vezzo took control of his solo career and released a now street classic “The Clarity”. With his catchy ab-lib “Whattttttt” and unique sound his fan base grew overnight. Icewear froze the city of Detroit with hit singles “Dancin” and “Got it all on me”. At what most would consider his “breakout” moment as an artist, Vezzo found himself facing the harsh realities of his environment, forcing him to do six months in jail. His time away however, did not go as time wasted. During his time in jail, Icewear’s new single “Money Phone” grabbed the attention of rap fans throughout the Midwest. Icewear Vezzo was released from jail in early June 2013. Undeniably more focused and hungry for success than ever! He was welcomed home to a set on Hot 107.5’s Summer Jamz, Headlining his own concert at the historic St Andrew’s hall and thousands of fans anticipating the release of “The Clarity 2”. Today both “The Clarity 1 & 2” can be found for purchase on iTunes, Amazon and a host of other digital download sites. Much more to come with this hot Indie artist as he breaks his way through more major markets creating his own lane and taking the music industry by storm.
