Published

on

Tocoreon Jordan better known by his stage name, 400 Guapo is from Ninety Six, South Carolina. He grew up in the 400 projects and other neighborhoods in his hometown. His life growing up as a kid wasn’t easy but music was his positive escape. As a kid you would find him writing poems, songs and drawing up ideas for his future clothing line but highschool years were tough. He was suspended, trapping, getting kicked out of school, but aside from getting in trouble as a teen he was very much motivated and focused on his career in music. 

 In 10th grade 400 Guapo had recorded his first two songs. After recording music he would stop and continue to hustle and make his money. Music wasn’t gone for long though, after he graduated highschool he had recorded two more songs in 2017. After going through so much in life for him and seeing so many negative outcomes creating music was a way to make light of all the hardships. His music is highly influenced by his experiences and by two of his favorite rappers, Bankroll Fresh and Gucci Mane.

 No matter how low life got for 400 Guapo he always came back to music and continued to work on his goals and dreams. He has learned a lot from the music business but one main thing he learned was that you have to be more than talented he says, you have to be business savvy to make it far. He mentions how you have to grind and invest in yourself and network. Some very important lessons for anyone seeking to have a career in the music industry. 400 Guapo advises that anyone seeking to pursue this career path should focus on the business aspect of it and not your old life. He says, “It’s not about acting tough and going after an old image you use to have in the hood. Try to get out of your city and move away. It’s too many rappers getting locked up and murdered over senseless and petty things. Try to live your career to the fullest.” 

 When asked, “if TMZ was to interview him today, how would he want to be perceived and positioned” he told us, “If TMZ was to interview me today, I would want them to see me as a good artist and businessman. I would want them to see me as the guy who gives back to his neighborhood, kids and help put on other artists to get them into the spotlight.” 400 Guapo, not only a talented artist but an amazing human being with a vision knows what it takes and how hard he has to work to make things happen. His goals this year is to record 100 songs and record a total of 6 projects with a body of work to his catalog.

Hagay Mizrahi, also known by his stage name Gemini Muziq is an American-Israeli songwriter, musician and record producer. When Hagay was six-years-old, his father’s work relocated his family to Taiwan, where they stayed until he was ten. This early exposure to travel and culture set him up for a fascinating life exploring the globe through his own career. He studied piano as a young child and continued this until he enrolled in the military at age 18. 

Upon being dispatched from the army, Hagay enrolled in the Rimon School of Music, where he studied composition and arrangement. During these years, young Hagay traveled to Kingston, Jamaica, where he was first introduced to life as a music producer. During his time in Jamaica, Hagay worked with Ras Daniel, Bob Marley’s percussionist Skully, and Shaggy’s drummer Paul Kastic. 

He collaborated with Dean Fraser and Yossi Fine and worked with some of Israel’s top artists after graduating. These were exciting acts to work with, but there was even more success on the horizon.

A defining moment in Hagay’s career 

The Israeli producer says the defining moment in his career came while working in Pacifique Studios in North Hollywood. During this time, Hagay recorded with many incredible and influential artists such as Christina Aguilera, Lil Wayne and, most notably to him, producer and songwriter Poo Bear. 

Hagay and Poo Bear worked on several songs together, but the most memorable moment came when the two were working on a piano riff in the studio. Hagay didn’t know which artist they were writing for, but he knew it sounded good. That session finished late, and the next day at the studio, Poo Bear told him Justin Bieber loves this song and wanted to use it on his next album. That track ended up being the title song for an album that sold four times platinum, and that evening Hagay knew that he’d been in the right place at the right time.  

A producer’s process 

Hagay believes that properly producing a song takes time, patience and a willingness to take a break. He notes that if he can’t trust his ears after three or four hours of work, it’s important to go away and come back the next day with a “fresh set of ears.” He says that a song should take at least four passes or days before it’s ready to go. Everything needs to sit just right in the mix and should sound good on any sound system. 

Hagay Mizrahi has overcome many obstacles in his lifetime, from clients falling out with investors and leaving him stranded to having to pay back debts and loans he had taken out in Israel. He believes that a willingness to work hard and invest time into his craft is what got him this far, which certainly shows. Hagay has already worked with Justin Beiber, Mario Barret, Common Kings and Christina Millian. It’s exciting to imagine which incredible artists he plans to team up with next.
