Louisville Kentucky rapper King Miz began his music industry career at the age of 12 as a member of the rap group Young Rydaz. In 2002, The Young Rydaz released their hit single “Big Boy Dreamz” which went on to sell well over 25,000 records. The sales resulted in the Young Rydaz’ signing with Southwest Distribution.
The single was such a huge hit the Young Rydaz were invited to appear on the Jenny Jones Show for a live performance. The Young Rydaz eventually disbanded, but Miz focused on honing his skills and set out on a solo career.
Miz continued writing, releasing mixtapes and performing throughout the Midwest, Southeast and West Coast. His 2010 debut LP, “Miz,” featured the breakout single “I Can Do You Better.” The song was a unique mix of Louisville swag, street poetry and heavy rhythms. The follow-up single “I Fee Ya” further punctuated Miz’s love for the streets. The successful tape earned Miz the Rookie of the Year award from the Kymp Kamp DJs, a mid-west DJ consortium.
Since then, Miz has shared the stage with famed recording artists such as Field Mob, Bushwick Bill & The Ghetto Boys, Ying Yang Twinz, Romeo, Bow Wow, Bobby Valentino, Webby, Gucci, Boosie, Young LA, Lil Webbie, Yo Gotti, Ace Hood, and Waka Flocka, to name a few. Miz has also graced the cover of Streetfame and has been interviewed for Ozone Magazine and Strap Magazine.
Mixtapes like “Certified” (2012) and “I Am Ali” (2014) increased Miz’s web & social media following, with songs like “Never Sleep” and “Kick It” showcasing his appealing sound. The visuals for “How I Feel” and “Go Hard,” featuring songstress Sydnii Raymore, are a glimpse at Miz’s in-your-face style of lyrical expression.
Presently, Miz is recording his latest effort titled “King Sh!t,” a project he excitedly says is long overdue. “I'm working with a few industry producers on my new project - this one will be great!”
The mixtape’s first single, “Sell a Dream,” hit the internet in spring of 2015. With the help of his team, he is preparing for the “No Turning Back” tour kicking off this summer.
“The streets are hungry and I’m here to feed ‘em,” he says. Destined to be the newest franchise in the industry, Miz stands ready to show the world why he is considered one of Da Ville’s most groundbreaking artists.
