Mezuo is a multi-creative entrepreneur from Houston, Texas that operates at the intersection of music, dramatic arts, and business as a Rapper, Music Producer, and Screenwriter for Television primarily. Mezuo is a graduate of the McCombs School of Business at The University of Texas at Austin with a degree in Marketing and minor concentration in screenwriting and directing; thus, he has made it a point to differentiate himself from his peers in the industry by diversifying his pursuits and taking a business centric approach to the arts. Mezuo started making music at 16 years old after a rap cypher on campus at Columbia University during a Pre-Law summer program that he attended in high school. Upon returning to Houston, Mezuo began writing his own songs. By 17, he began producing his own beats and performing live to audiences. Since then, Mezuo has self-produced and released 5 original mixtapes and opened for the likes of Bun B, Chamillionaire, Slim Thug, Z-Ro, Devin The Dude, Afroman, Chris Webby, Paul Wall, and many more.
Now, just out of college and focusing on his wide range of skills, Mezuo resides in Los Angeles where he is represented by Media Artists Group. He has been co-producing and headlining his own events at major venues across the city since releasing his debut single “Meztakes” on all major platforms in November of 2017. The record has garnered the attention of top 10 music publications in “Underground Hip Hop Blog” and 50 Cent’s “Thisis50”, in addition to DJ Lechero from LA’s top hip hop radio stations, Power 106/Real 92.3 and many other industry figures. Mezuo followed up this effort with the release of his second single “30”, which led to an International festival performance in Toronto at AFROFEST, in addition to increased publicity with major brands from the music video release such as The Source, HipHopWeekly, HipHopSince1987, DJ Drama’s DramaLikeTheDJ, and more. In the television space, Mezuo most recently met with HBO to discuss the pilot script of his first original TV Series, “Con Grads”, and is looking to leverage the connections he’s amassed to land a production/distribution deal with a prominent streaming service such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, etc that will ultimately allow him to exercise creative control with his original work. 2020 was a year of the most immense growth for the artist in terms of stream counts, follow counts, merchandising efforts, and major placements despite the effects of Covid-19 on the entertainment industry; however, Mezuo appears to be well on his way to becoming a household name across music, television, & film as he is packaging a plethora of major releases for 2021.
