"The Limelight"


Just caught wind of TiZ via "trusty ole" twitter! TiZ reached out and dropped me a line for his video "Hello Summa"....wanting to know more I had him send over his info for futher scrutiny!.....In reviewing the Forest City, NC native's bio, I saw that he was recently featured on Allhiphop.com for "Heater of The Day"....which sparked my interest even more!..... So, I quickly searched for his entry and was pleasantly met by "The Great Debate" confirming that this is the season to be listening to TiZ! The emerging Carolina emcee is definitely a seed to watch grow as the NC hip-hop scene continues to flourish! In the works currently for TiZ is "On My Job" , his debut mixtape which will be his ultimate test to "Wu" us over! So at this point the ball is in TiZ court to show us what he's got......but seeing that he was an all-state letter-man in high school, I'm sure he is use to balling under pressure!...we're routing for you TiZ....it's your time to shine!

Check out TiZ "Hello Summa" visual below along with other links to get you familiar with his music:

“I don’t talk I let my work speak take my advice stay humble!!” - Tiz

With the North Carolina Underground Music Awards this weekend (March 19th!), it’s a most for NC hip-hop lovers to come out and support our own artists. One of the featured artists will be rapper Tiz performing in the cypher with pre and after party appearances as well. The main thing I love about him is he minimizes cursing so no filler words or wasted bars. For his earlier music check out http://www.reverbnation.com/TiZMusiq and one of my favorite songs by him The Great Debate.

His latest video out a freestyle to Kanye West’s Power which he ripped. In an area where Waka’s It’s A Party is considered many’s anthem, it is so refreshing to hear deep lyrics. Deep lyrics to me are lyrics that go beyond the surface and take some thought to get to the meaning. No not everyone is going to get it but takes a lot of courage to stay true to it when many are abandoning it. Salute!

US-74W is one of the only highways that seems like it travels through time. Leaving the fast paced technology driven concrete dominated metropolitan of Charlotte, NC it leads you to a bounty of dirt roads and church steeples. Forest City, NC one of the first cities along the highway has always been seen as a dull spot on map but today it has a reason to shine.
“The sign actually says small town friendly” says Mr. NC Tiz of his hometown during a recent interview. Born Raymond Phillips on October 27, 1987, Tiz has been around music all of his life, “My mom sang, I sang, I really started rapping when I was 14”. At the age of 14 being branded with nickname Ray-Tizzle (which eventually just became Tiz), he started a group along with is cousins called “1GP”. He then later joined “IDC” in 2002 but left the group after only one year. While music stayed a part of his life Tiz put it aside to pursue his education and attend college in Virginia at New River College. In 2009 unable to keep his passion aside Tiz decided to reemerge as a solo artist in his new home of Charlotte, a small fish in a big pond. Not quite.
Under the direction of Guy Hartley of Black Ops Entertainment, Tiz has become a big fish in his own ocean in the past year. His radio spins include stations ranging from New York’s Power 105.1 to his backyard with Charlotte’s 103.3, which can’t even be reached by a standard radio in his hometown of Forest City. “People will know it when they hear my voice, my voice commands attention”. That voice has got him plenty of attention, from dozen of blogs including Coast2Coast.com and Allhiphop.com where the single “The Great Debate” was named Heater of the Day. His latest single and video “Hello Summa” has gained him major airplay and notoriety on MTVU, which made him a familiar face with the crowd when he opened up on particular dates on the east coast leg of the 2011 “Most Dope Tour” headlined by Mac Miller
Tiz is a staple in the underground rap scene in North Carolina, collaborating with a number of artists including Ricky Runway, and the Royal Tee and working with a host of producers such as Tree 80, and Jae Muzik. “I want to reach the masses, make music everybody can feel, and love. I belong here doing what I love; I’m destined to do this.” As the city continues to listen on we watch Tiz go from Mr. Small Town Friendly to Mr. Center City Star
