Headliner of the Day: Tay Dizm

The music industry is so full of boasting and big egos that it’s refreshing to come across an artist who is both talented and down to earth. Tay Dizm is that kind of artist. His friendship with T-Pain has been a bonus, but at the end of the day, you have to stand on your own. Tay Dizm may have gotten his start in Miami, but there’s no limit to how far his skills and charisma are going to take him. Watch for him at a gig near you.

More on Tay Dizm:

Tay Dizm, songwriter and artist, is the blooming threat in pop-hip-hop music. The down to earth and high energy Miami artist ignites the world one city at a time. This incomparable artist -born Artavious Smith- has made a name for himself with his animated stage presence and humble spirit. “Talk to me and I’ll talk back,” he says.

In 2003, the Miami-native began his journey in Tallahassee, FL with best friend, T-Pain. The two traveled the globe extensively for close to four years, before Tay Dizm was ready to become an artist in his own right. Tay Dizm was able to jumpstart his career by appearing on two of T-Pain’s albums, Rappa Ternt Sanga (2005) and Epiphany (2007). When it came time to pick his first artist to represent his brand new venture Nappy Boy Digital, Pain chose Tay Dizm. He was also handpicked to appear on hard-hitting tracks which includes “She Got It” with 2 Pistols, “Who Da F*** is Dat” with Dolla which charted on the Billboard Year-End Hot 100 singles of 2008. Tay Dizm also appeared on “G-5” with Huey. The release of his first single in August 2008 “Beam Me Up,” which featured T-Pain and Rick Ross has brought him into the limelight.

A strong push at nationwide radio mix shows has helped him gain a strong fan base. The eccentric artist began focusing more on his solo career in 2009 which also was the release of his second single “Dream Girl,” featuring Akon. It was a global success with over 16.2 million views on YouTube. With Tay Dizm’s first leak “Smoke” ft T-Pain, produced by Mr. Beatz ( YMCMB producer) off his “Thank you For Being a Friend” all over the internet, the world is now hearing the best of what Tay Dizm has to offer. As he moves forward in this New Year, the Tay Dizm sound is catching on worldwide. With several awards at his side, including the 2008 songwriting award from ASCAP, and four hot new singles to be released this year, nothing can stop him.

Tay Dizm’s mixtape “Thank You for Being a Friend” was released February 17, 2011, presented by Coast 2 Coast DJ’s and Datpiff.com via Nappy Boy Digital. With a strong love for every individual fan he has, the mixtape cover will be an abstract colleague of pictures of his fans forming Tay Dizm’s face. As a follow up project to his mixtape, Dizm has a new street anthem “Gettin’ to the Money” featuring T-Pain and J-Bo which has spread virally. The energetic artist that fuses pop and rock into his music is making a buzz and the world is now receiving what Dizm has to offer.

“This is what we doing and this is where we going,” says Tay Dizm.
