Gifted Higgz, born Gary Antoine Higgins on January 3rd, 1988, at Middlesex Hospital In Middletown, Connecticut, was born a star. Whether standing out on sports teams or lighting up the room with his genuine, raw, and down-to-earth personality, Gifted Higgz is hands down the life of the party. Growing up in Middletown, CT, G-Higgz was exposed to the street life at an early age. Surrounded by poverty in a drug-infested neighborhood, like most, he became a product of his environment.
Though he was liked by most of the people he interacted with, he often had to prove himself to remain respected among his peers. As previously mentioned, in his earlier years, he was heavily into sports. From football to basketball he was a stand out, an athlete who always was a captain on the team. Although his athleticism could have taken him far, he always had a passion for music. He was beatboxing since he was three years old and continued throughout high school. Gifted would perform the hottest beats for the local cyphers that went down. It was then people began to take notice. In awe, the neighborhood rappers saw something in him that one day the world would get to see.
Influenced by the likes of Jadakiss, Jay-Z, Andre 3000, Lloyd Banks, Cassidy, Big L, and Eminem, Gifted Higgz envisioned through his gutter style and hard hitting lyricism he has what it takes to make it in the industry. From random battles in the streets to battles featured leagues such as HeaviiTV, Gifted evolved as a diversified artist. Gifted captivated on open mics & began throwing his shows and in turn, started recording and selling mixtapes out of his backpack. Gifted Higgz generated a buzz that’s continuing to grow momentum.
The originality, perseverance, and determination are all key characteristics Gifted Higgz attributes to leading him to this point. The up and coming rapper stated life knocked him down a few times to get where he’s at, and like any World Champion would tell you, he anticipates taking a few more lumps to get where he’s going.

With a unique sound that can only be described as “feel-good” in nature, T.A.Y. establishes himself as an artist capable of blending genres and creating a vibe. Releasing his debut EP ‘i don’t really do this’ in August 2021, his introduction to the world is most certainly a memorable one. A collaborative artist by nature, the South FL songwriter has proven he is committed to quality by committee.

WingzPlayr was born and raised in Detroit, MI. For some time, he also lived in Waterford which is a small town near Detroit. It is the place where he met some of his closest friends. He has been working 9 to 5 jobs since the beginning and always thought that music was a side career.

He started working as a graphic designer for music artists and Kid Ink made him believe that he could be a music artist himself. He started recording music at the age of 19 and started improving his craft to assure that he can give his best to the audience. Last year he started traveling the country to meet other artists who inspired him to work harder. His true motivation is his mother and he is working hard for her because he lost her a week after his birthday.
