Wiz Propane
Hailing from Compton, CA, it’s Wiz Propane. Born Maurice Blake in 1982, Wiz Propane started writing lyrics at the tender age of 11. In his sixth grade class, while some students were acting unruly and others were studying for upcoming test, Wiz Propane began rapping to beats of his classmates beating on the desk. He formed a group with one of his classmates called Double Trouble. Determined to make his mark in the hip hop game, Double Trouble recorded a demo tape that was supposedly going to be placed in the hands of Dr. Dre. Unfortunately, he never heard anything from the demo tape and subsequently Double Trouble fizzled out. Wiz Propane put down the pen yet still knew he would return pick it up again one day. As the years went by, Wiz Propane kept rapping but it turned into a hobby. Free styling became his new thing since he wasn’t taking it serious at this point. He and his friends would battle almost every week to showcase their skills. It was at this time that people really started to take notice of his clever word play and smooth delivery, but Wiz Propane (at this time known as Rece) shunned the notion of people telling him he should rap. It wasn’t until his senior year in high school when Wiz Propane finally picked the pen back up. Wiz Propane, through mutual friends, connected with three other rappers named, Mic Knight, Mr. Tone, and Cheese to form a four man group called the Hard Hittaz (his name started as Wiz Kid). Due to business situations they became a three man group cutting their business ties with Cheese with no love lost. After six years of rhyming with the group, two underground albums, numerous shows, and a fast growing underground buzz, Wiz Propane has decided to try the solo thing for the first time. Wiz Propane is still definitely, a part of Compton Hard Hittaz but the streets are anticipating what he will do as a solo artist. Some feel that Wiz Propane’s style is not the authentic west coast sound that people are used to, while most feel that he offers something new and fresh which is what is needed in the rap game right now. He has his own independent label, C.R.E.A.M.M., Inc. that is in motion as well as his support group Burris Ave Entertainment and “The Campane”. With his unique style, witty word play, and captivating delivery, Wiz Propane is sure to take the world on a fascinating musical journey.

Pooka Dook
The Original Pooka Dook along with Showtyme Productionz, an independent label from Compton, CA, brought up in the Church so of course music has always played an important part in my life. I grew up listening to the “Old School” artists and that is why my “swag” is so unique, “hoodful” & soulful. I write my own music. I am the truth in the booth & hold nothing back. I have been in & out of different groups & finally God has favored me to be a solo artist, "Thank U Jesus!!!" I have worked with several well-known producers & artists from all over throughout my career, including from the west coast, Ghetto Rich, Lil Major, Big 2da Boy, Big Keboe, Frenchii, Tuc, Elmo, Young Ace Da Heartthrob and Timtation.
