“The beginning is said to be the best and worst of times. My story is no different. Growing up in bluff city was no different. Surrounded by things designed to put me in either jail or in the grave early I was looking for a way out. One day I found hiphop at a young age through my brother listening to local artist like Yo Gotti Playa Fly Three Six mafia and big named artists such as Jay-Z, Tupac, Biggie, Nas, Wu-tang, Outkast, UGK Etc. I started freestyling around 6 and didn’t really think hiphop would work out for me because it just seemed like a dream. As time went on I got better, even taking some poetry classes, some music classes, and studying the artists I viewed as the best. In 2016 that’s when I decided I would make it in hiphop and after finding the name Krisiz one night at the studio I knew it was time I started my journey.
As of 2018, 2019, and 2020 I’ve gained some attention from other artists who have taken me under their wing and showed me a vast amount of information about the music industry. In November I embarked on a self tour called Dreamz and I performed at places such as St. Petersburg Florida, Nashville,TN, and Memphis,TN. I was featured in Locked magazine January 15th on the cover. I was on power99da mix and also Cypher City Radio and was featured on channel 31 for upcoming Memphis artists. In addition to those I released my debut album D.R.E.A.M.Z in February on all platforms. Currently my focus is on the new album I am working on titled Worldwide Krisiz coming soon to all platforms.
