27-year-old Boston bred rapper Cousin Stizz is cementing himself as one of the top up-and-comers in hip-hop. Born and raised in a rough part of Boston's Dorchester neighborhood, Stizz was forced to mature quickly. At the age of 13, Stizz was faced with a harsh reality when his close friend was killed by a gunshot wound, causing Stizz to misbehave. His mother then had to give him an ultimatum; he could either attend military school or high school in the suburbs to stay out of trouble. Stizz chose the latter, which served as both a huge culture shock and turning point in his life. While there, Cousin Stizz learned a lot about himself and how to adapt to others and his different surroundings. His schooling and experiences, which he calls the best four years of his life, greatly helped to shape his musical journey.

As a teenager, Cousin Stizz enjoyed freestyling and liked to rap for fun, but didn't think much about making it a life career until his friend Michael Christmas started to become popular in the hip hop community. With the inspiration from his friend's success, he owed it to himself and his family and friends to take his talent seriously and started recording music. This led to the release of his first mixtape Suffolk County in June 2015, which has received over 12 million listens on SoundCloud alone. He followed up his debut mixtape with MONDA, a mixtape dedicated to and named after his good friend who passed away from cancer. His RCA label debut, 2017's One Night Only, proved to be worthy of all the anticipation with features from some of the biggest names in hip-hop like Offset and G-Eazy. He now follows that up with Trying To Find My Next Thrill. With guest appearances from City Girls, Smino, Freddie Gibbs and more, TTFMNT tells the story of Stizz's rise out of Boston to present-day – the newly found fame and the trials and tribulations that have morphed over time, but still exist as memories from the past both haunt him and inspire progress.

Benny The Butcher 

Benny the Butcher knew by the age of ten that he wanted to be involved with music. He self-released his mixtapes in the late 2000s as B.E.N.N.Y., including The Mayor's Back and Chains Bond. In 2014, Westside Gunn founded Griselda Records, through which Benny, Conway and Westside Gunn would self-release their own projects. In 2016, Benny released his album titled My First Brick followed by the mixtape Butcher on Steroids with DJ Green Lantern in 2017. March 3, 2017, Griselda Records signed a deal with Eminem's Shady Records, a subsidiary of Interscope. 

On November 23, 2018, he released his album Tana Talk 3, produced by The Alchemist and Griselda associate Daringer, and includes features from Westside Gunn, Conway and Royce da 5'9". The album was critically acclaimed and he began to gain widespread attention. On June 21, 2019, he released the extended play The Plugs I Met, which includes guest appearances from Black Thought, Pusha T, 38 Spesh, Jadakiss, and Conway The Machine. On August 6, it was announced that Benny signed a management deal with Roc Nation.
