SBYZ signs Ohio rapper Deezy216

Eighteen year old rapper Deezy216 signs to SBYZ
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. -- SBYZ CEO Renaldo "Swiperboy" Woolridge announced the signing of eighteen year old Ohio rapper, Deezy216. Dylan "Deezy216" Estep played four years of baseball and football at Riverside High School in Painesville, Ohio. When he began high school, he joined rap group AHK, a conglomerate of mid-west solo artists that banded together for cross-promotion. He started to get local attention at his school and in his city, releasing music occasionally on soundcloud. His popularity increased as he began collaborating with up-and-coming artists from all around the country.

In his small town on the outskirts of Cleveland, Ohio, Deezy216 linked up with some friends to create "The Wave". The organization governed by high-schooler's gave fellow classmates and friends the opportunity to engage in party-safe activities. Deezy216 and his boys would host drug-free/alcohol-free party events, which served a dual purpose for local talent to perform and be heard. This platform allowed Deezy216's buzz to grow exponentially, as all of his peers began to latch onto his sound. Flyers were posted all throughout the surrounding cities, and attendance would average in the hundreds.

Deezy216's music reached from Ohio, all the way to Los Angeles in the spring of 2016. It was during that time period when Swiperboy came across his soundcloud profile.

"I knew the kid had a lot of potential, but wanted to see the kind of person he was" Swiperboy explained. "We were in contact throughout the summer during our tours and events. He's a good kid, involved in extracurricular activities, sports, taking college courses in High School, and loves music. He's been through some things in his personal life, and has not let it negatively affect his, or other people's lives around him. He's focused and destined for greatness, I'm just happy to be able to help on his journey".

Swiperboy recently coached Chris Brown at the Power 106 Celebrity All-Star basketball game in Los Angeles. The game consisted of entertainers Mac Miller, Omarion, Kid Ink, Tank, Keke Palmer, Lil Dicky, Pauly D, Don Benjamin and more. This event, and others, has put an industry-wide spotlight on SBYZ.

"The secret about the label is out. I just need the right pieces to compete going into 2017 if we want to take over" Swiperboy describes. "I believe we can have a 'Young Money' 2010 affect next year. With that being said, I truly believe Deezy216 is one of those key pieces we need."
