Born and raised in Burlingame, California, Soz has grown up with exceptional drive ever since his early years. Soz has created a buzz around the San Francisco bay area with his music. His drive to accomplish and succeed has made him a hot prospect in today's industry. The album title itself describes the ambition and stride of Soz and his goals. What makes Soz unique from the emerging artists out there is that he has an on-stage presence that rocks the house. Since 1999, Soz has worked with other bay area artists on tracks for mix tapes and his local solo release in 2001 B-Game Hustla that featured Young Droop and Mr.Kee. Soz's new album The Initiative includes songs featuring rap stars 50 Cent, Snoop Dogg, E-40, Keak Da Sneak, San Quinn, Young Droop and many more. The Album is produced by local pioneer JT The Bigga Figga along with Vik Bhalla, Sean T, Dre at the Hotbox, WayDeep and Hardlabor.
