The music industry is a trap. The allure of money and fame draws the curious dreamer into the realm of existence designed for the elite class of entertainers.
HARDEST LESSON TO LEARN WAS BUSINESS IS NOT FOR FRIENDSHIP
Seldom do you see the veteran class of survivors recall the road to riches as perfect, pleasant, or even peaceful. The truth is the road is long and hard if it’s great and fast and destructive if it comes early in life.
I’m King Ryan E Travis Sr also known as Feezy350. I spent my whole life rapping literally as long as I can remember I could put poetry in motion over instrumentals. At around 13 I put out my first rap tape. Yes rap cassette before CDs came out. Lol I’m getting old.
Anyway I had ambition and drive and I had a hard childhood so music was an escape. I remember I had a personal relationship with Lazette Perez at Orlando’s 102jamz from calling in all the time. I just knew I would be heard one day.
At 18 I got a phone number from Jennifer a lady friend of mine through my sister in law. She told me to call the number and link up with the guy. He had a baby by Brittany from Mims Florida who was her friend and was a rapper. The artist name was PLIES and he was working on a mixtape shopping a deal which ended at Slip N Slide Records.
I called and end up driving from Titusville Florida to Kissimmee to meet DawgMan Ent artist WhiteDawg to get a Protools session for this artist Plies and driving the session on disk to 5th st Miami Beach SlipNSlide Records office and studio. It was a lavish BeachHouse turned into a record label with a fence all the way around. Only in Miami lol.
Plies end up meeting with me without paying a dime for my trip and recording music then setting up an appointment for the next week. When I returned for the meeting he sent me to a bogus address in Oplalocka which later became my stomping ground but at the time was just a bad area. And I believe he intended to set me up because the guy he sent me to was on the robbing tip which later became a friend of mine. Regardless I was pissed because he stood me up for no reason. 3 hour drive for nothing.
My CANLIFE brother G Money Killed Mandy the night I met Plies the first time Jan 5 2005. My son passed away from SIDS August 28, 2004 and I had pending court cases out of Tampa and Cordelle GA. My baby momma had left with my daughter and step son leaving me with my son that had passed away and the weight was on my shoulders. Yet pure ambition clicked in my soul that night at the gas station as the betrayal of Plies Introduced me to the music industry. I was all in for a long ride unbeknownst to my young mind

Or in his words, it is “Greatness in the making”.
“My inspiration to music has to be my daddy first as he always used to play Luther Vandross and Four Play the Jazz group. The movies “Temptations” and “The Jackson 5” really moved my soul as a child and Tupac and Biggie introduced me to manhood and music. MasterP No Limit records And TrickDaddy at SlipNSlide Records were my models of artists who were people like me that made it”, says Feezy350, telling about the things and people who inspired him to pursue music.
Feezy350 has loved music as far as he can remember. He started singing officially back in March 1998 but he has been performing for people since he was just around 7 years of age. Feezy350 has worked for popular artists like TPain, Plies, and Pretty Ricky.
Feezy350 inspires people to always believe in themselves and to never quit. Through his music, he tells the world to let out the music they have within themselves, as it will make them feel free and alive.
When you started making music ?
I started writing poetry before I started school so probably 5 or 6 Years old I began the process and March 13 1998 I recorded with Elliot Morgan aka Big E on his birthday at his momma Miss Regina’s house using two separate radios with one playing the instrumental and recording on the other one! E even beboxed and I sang I wanna know by Joe . It was a full tape on one side and part of the other side of us and it was actually decent enough that ppl were talkin about it!
How would you describe your music ?
Gospel Gangsta Musik I’m a true street kid plus I’m Jewish with a black dad and both my parents were adopted yet stayed together until my momma passed in 2015. They were both very educated and they let me and my brother and sister find our way in life so my musik is an expression of the conundrums and paradox of life. My music has soul and a message with storylines about everything from drug to women to God to geography and do on.
What’s your creative process like ?
It’s all inspiration in my spirit so the process once took a lot of weed and privacy and I wouldn’t write I’d just freestyle and punch over mistake but today it’s really about having a good record and lyrical content so now it’s about taking time to be sure every track is a Great record.
What is your come up story ?
I’m still writing it! But 2005 I drove a studio session to Plies at SlipNSlide records in Miami from DawgManEnt Artist WhiteDawg who was popular underground in Florida. I hung out that night at the studio and the next week Plies was supposed to do a record with me to return the favor for drivin 3 hours each way and the 2 hours to get the files from Kissimmee s as well. So the next weekend I Went to meet him there and he flaked and stood me up. So the next week I went to the studio on my own in my maroon Buick on 22s that I bought from my homie. And I put my 3 or 4 self produced albums in Manila envelopes with a 20$ bill in each one! I pulled up to SlipNSlide records with my music loud playin my music and I handed the cd packages out to everybody I seen. 30 mins later I was prayin at my motel and The Great Jullian Boothe called me and said he was the VP of SlipNSlide Records and he became the only manager I’ve ever had. He put me on two of Pitbulls songs on the TVT infamous Welcome to 305 album. Then Raphaela Lima at EASports picked up two records. One is on Madden07 and the other is on NBALIVE 07 and Lil Jon and ShaunaK were on Mr. Dj with me on DjSmallz SouthernSmoke 17. Jullian taught me so much and made so much happen so fast and I’m forever grateful for him taking the time to help me. Ironically the same night I drove to meet Plies the first time my Homie Greg killed his gf Mandy so all this was part of a lot of bigger events. This was January 2005 and My 11 month old son died 8/24/04 plus 2 months later I had to turn myself in to prison from a charge I had pending so yea my story is still bein written.
What was your inspiration to make music ?
It came naturally I actually want to give speeches for a living lol but when you grow up in crazy circumstances music becomes the perfect release. I always like The Jackson5 movie and the five heartbeats and the Temptations movie. Plus my daddy and even my Big brother enocouraged me. But definitely inspired by the movies !
