“Although I’m just starting, when I’m gone, I want to be remembered most through my collection of music.”

Wiz Kid The Weirdo is an American rapper, singer, songwriter, and producer who is also known as Justin Hargrave, born on Friday June 13th 1986 in Detroit, Michigan. Wiz Kid always enjoyed a crowd and was never afraid to entertain an audience. His first performance was in 1992 while in kindergarten. Along with his peers they performed “End of the Road” by Boyz II Men, but it wasn’t’ until 1993 at the tender age of 7 when Wiz Kid fell in love with music and knew he wanted to be a part of it. He was sitting in the car when he heard “Thuggish Ruggish Bone” by Bone Thugs-n-Harmony and was forever inspired.

After graduating from high school and writing/producing his first song at 18, Wiz Kid moved to Tallahassee, FL to attend college and to play baseball. He majored in engineering, but his passion of music was calling his name and he continued to write and produce throughout college. At 21 he accepted an internship to work at Hot Beats Studio in Atlanta, GA where he began to learn about the business side of the music industry and network in the music community. After completing the internship in 2007, he briefly moved back to Detroit but decided to go back to Atlanta (where he presently resides) in 2008 to pursue his music career.

As an adult, Wiz Kid’s first performance was a rock rendition remix of Lil Wayne’s “Prom Queen” in which he was booed off stage but didn’t allow that to stop him. He has since performed in over 25 live performances in various states with the majority in metro Atlanta. His first published songs, “Miss Molly” and “So High” are gaining a lot of buzz and recognition. He accredits this to his greatest musical influences Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, for their harmonious blend of R&B and Hip Hop; Jay Z for his style and delivery; and Tupac Shakur for his massive body of work, discipline, and delivery. He considers his style a fusion of Rock, Pop, and Hip Hop
