Wiill



When Wiill was at the University of Connecticut working on his transfer applications, he started to find a serious interest in music. He would always mess around and freestyle at parties and attract crowds around him, and people would always try to get him to put his freestyles on SoundCloud. He now finds himself at Boston College with over 10,000 monthly listeners and over 300,000 streams on Spotify. Wiill’s brother Zach always made music. Will described this as “ the driving force in me making the change from a fan to an artist.”  

Something Wiill has been told a lot is his music never has the same sound. Will elaborated on this saying, “all my music is so different will either be my greatest attribute or something I’ll struggle with my entire career.” He wants to push the boundaries of music like artists above him have; Wiill mentioned Mac Miller, Tupac, and Kanye as a few artists that have pushed this boundary. Wiill described his versatility, saying, “I think it’s a blessing. I don’t feel like the fact that my music doesn’t sound the same hurts me; it’s exciting to push the envelope a bit.” Wiill has met and worked with many people who have excellent connections in the industry so far. They all believe that Wiill has the potential to get to the next level in the music industry. 

As a senior at Boston College, Wiill is trying to gain as much momentum throughout campus as possible. Wiill knows how tough it is to make it in the industry, especially in the Boston area, as an upcoming artist, and he is going to do whatever he can to create a new way of marketing for himself to help him stand out. Wiill has a lot of support from his close friends and family and mentioned how much of a blessing it is for him. Everyone close to him is supporting him in what makes him happy. Wiill’s career started with garage band and a $30 microphone, and he currently has a lot planned even with this crazy time, which he thinks can take him to the next level in music. Wiill recently released a song titled “Something on My Crown.” Make sure to check it out and all of his other music out on all platforms!

Wavy Ry describes music as “an art, not a trend.” At the beginning of this year, Wavy Ry was able to release a track called “Replace You” which featured Chief Keef’s Cousin Matti Baybee. Wavy Ry had the opportunity to take a trip and stay in LA for a while to get in the studio and network. While talking about the trip, he mentioned “ I came across Paramount studios and locked in a session. Paramount has had so many great musicians that have recorded there. literally some of the people I grew up listening to have recorded their best tracks in Paramount Studios. So being there and walking through that type of Atmosphere, seeing all the plaques on the Walls from Ice Cube and Lil Wayne to Guns N roses, Linkin Park, Flo-Rida, so any of them throwback 2000 vibes were made there it was just dope to be there and actually record a song in the same booth as Icons.” He was

Fasscoupe

Representing Massachusetts to the best of its ability is something Fasscoupe takes very seriously, and that is something he has done very well. From opening to Lil Uzi Vert at back to back sold-out dates at the House of Blues to working with the likes of Lil Baby and Rich the Kid, Fasscoupe has been able to bring Massachusetts’ underground rap to the spotlight.  Fasscoupe began to make music in 2014 and was inspired by his older brother to do so. He mentioned “My older brother used to play CD’s around the house, he would play Dipset, G-Unit, and more. That is how I started to fall in love with hip-hop.”  Something Fasscoupe has credited to his success thus far is his experience in the music industry. He continued with “I am able to give something that really has no expiration date on it. To leave a legacy for people to follow or admire.” These experiences have been able to come from some of the biggest names in music, especially from when he worked on his track “Pray For” whic
