Out of the Pacific Northwest comes a unique artist by the name of Montie Blaze who has show the ability to bridge the gap between the popular sounds of today with that of the lyricism and artistry of legendary greats. Being biracial and having experienced life between the rugged streets of Ft Worth to the laid-back hipster city of Portland, Montie has developed a style that is attractive to all people from all walks of life. Shortly after completing his first mixtape "The Grind's Getting Heavy," Montie received the attention of Patti Geiger and former So So Def Producer, Carl So Lowe, known for producing hits such as JD and Jay Z's "Money Ain't A Thing" and Aaliyah's "One In A Million." Improving the young artist's sound by arming him with platinum quality production and addressing his mechanics to polishing up his delivery, Montie's debut album "MSP=Fun," eventually gained the attention of Industry Tour Manager Ron Byrd(w/ clients such as Migos, Travis Scott, Young Thug and currently Lil Yatchy) as well as earning him a distribution deal with Universal Music Group. Shortly after Montie found himself in studios and touring with some of the hottest acts in the world.
