IamTash: Certified Gold

In 2016, IamTash started to make beats. He shared, “I started off with LogicPro then switched over to FL Studio. I had nobody to show my beats to so every beat I made; I posted to youtube.” Starting this YouTube channel was one of the decisions Tash could make. He now has over 80,000 subscribers and has credits from artists like Pop Smoke, Coi Leray, YBN Nahmir, Ugly God, Famous Dex, and many more.
Starting this YouTube channel helped artists like Pop Smoke discover him. Tash produced “What You Know Bout Love” on Pop Smoke’s posthumous album “Shoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon” (which went #1 on Billboard in its first week released and is now RIAA certified gold) where the song has over 10 million streams on Spotify alone. Tash talked about this album, saying, “I've worked on songs that did numbers, but this is a part of music history.” He added, “I didn't really work with him; it happened through Youtube. I posted that beat two years ago, and it went kinda viral (because of that sample). Then I remember last year around this time, I kept seeing the song get reposted by people, and when I checked it out, it was my beat. I would've never expected him on that type of beat.”
Working on YouTube has also brought some unique trouble to Tash, he mentioned: “A few years back, a beat that I had on youtube did some numbers, and another producer stole the beat, claimed it was his, and sent it to Moneybagg yo & T.I, got all the credit, and I didn't see anything from that song.” Even though this happened to Tash, he was able to learn from this. He continues to post a lot of beats on YouTube as he says, “I built up a following on youtube, and it got me where I am today.”
Boston is a very special place to Tash. When talking about the city and the music scene, Tash says, “Boston is home, where I feel the most comfortable. I wish our music scene could grow, but we got to come together first and stop all the hating.” For the future, Tash plans to continue posting beats on YouTube and make sure to connect with Tash on social media @Iam.Tash.

P.A.

1. When did you start to make music? I always wanted to pursue music but I did not know how to. I really started about six months ago.  2. What/who inspired you to make music? It started off with me and a couple of friends recording shitty freestyles as a joke and we would just uploading them to soundcloud. The songs somehow got a lot of views and people were liking it so I said screw it let me take this a bit more serious. 3. What is the biggest opportunity you have earned/received in music so far?  My biggest opportunity was probably the Longlivehshawn x Fajita performance. Before that I was not really sure what I wanted to get out of this music thing but after the show I decided I wanted to really take this music thing seriously 4. How does your music stand out compared to other artists?  My music is very unique because of my flow versatility and melody game. I am able to combine my soft voice to hard melodic trap beats. I think I am perfect for today's hi

Diz

At the age of 17, Diz knows how to let his emotions out and make people understand the demons he deals with. On October 2nd, he released a project titled “Black Water,” which features songs such as “To See Is To Believe” and “Orange Blossom.” This project by Diz was straight from the heart and described it as going through some “dark shit.” Going into his freshman year of highschool, Diz started to make music with his friend Ziggi. Since then he has had some amazing opportunities, Diz mentioned “ my group Illegal Advisory we played a sold out show at the Middle East Downstairs, but even more important than that to me is being able to explore my own sound. That's made me so much more confident in my music and it's given me more drive to keep exploring and to be myself.”  When it comes to his sound, Diz knows he is different, he explained “I think my music is a lot different than a lot of other artists right now. I'm not going to say if it's better or worse bec
