As soon as I got the chance & no one was around, I marched right over to my fathers Marantz stereo system, (This was one of his prized possessions. lol) grabbed his Miami Vice Record and started wearing out the needle until -all of the sudden......"SNaP!!!".... I broke the needle clean off! I remember that day well because when he got home and saw his stereo system had been used as a toy, he was pissed! lol! That was the begining for me." -Tiz Since then, Tiz has pushed vinyl & beats all accross the globe and now focuses primarily on producing song with The A-Team & writing songs for upcoming artists like C.L. Mecca, Cheec Webster, T-Lyric, D.J. Akami, Soul City and many more. At age 24, this underground producer/singer/songwriter/D.J./M.C. is on the way to becoming a household name.
