Raised in West Philly’s “Da Bottom” neighborhood, RiZ started rapping with his closest friend in high school. After high school RiZ was accepted to Penn State’s University Park campus where he decided to go solo and work on his craft. It wasn’t until his junior year that he finally put out a solo project after a series of single releases late in his sophomore year. Graduating and having had opened for PNB Rock and Super Duper Kyle, RiZ is ready to become a true force in Hip-Hop. With a balance of sounds and topic, his music is made from the soul. Focusing on songs to inspire, feel love, pain, the turnup, and pride, it is all about being versatile and showing the many sides of his character.
This track, ‘Runnin’ is a statement and testament to the mindset of the rapper as he expresses that he is “trying to get up on the scene…get it by any means…” thus you know for certain that RiZ definitely means business.
From building his “iKonBy25″ brand to putting on concerts for local acts, RiZ is setting the table to do more than just make music.
