After getting a copy of Snoop Dogg’s Doggystyle because of a case of poor eyesight and its cartoon like cover art, Dwane Sweazie’s love affair with Hip Hop began. Born in St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands, Sweazie relocated to Houston with his family at the age of three. He grew to be influenced by Jay Z, Scarface, Notorious B.I.G., and DJ Screw and began writing rhymes on his own in hopes of blazing the same path. His songwriting skills paid off in way that wasn’t quite expected.
Sweazie has been ghostwriting for over a decade, penning hits for artists who will go unnamed due to confidentiality agreements. He partnered with Houston, Texas based The Cold Chamber, a company specializing in production, mixing, and mastering. Clients include Snoop Dogg, Busta Rhymes, Baby Bash, Z-Ro, The Pussycat Dolls, T-Pain, Lil Jon, Paul Wall, Slim Thug, Lil Boosie, The Ying Yang Twins, Paula Deanda, Devin The Dude, Scarface, Frankie J, Amerie, WWE, and many more.
Though Sweazie has gained success behind the scenes, his desire to be on the front lines have not faded. He’s currently working on an EP, The Dwane Sweazie EP, scheduled for release in 2016.
