Raised by his grandparents in Clarksdale, Mississippi, Wizdakidd (born Joseph T. Gordon Jr. in 1998) started producing his freshman year in college at Jackson State University, producing tracks for his early mixtapes in his dorm room. After a flurry of increasingly strong beat mixtapes (most notably 2019’s Thee Loaner), Wiz made his major-label leap with 2019’s Operation Wizod.
After starting his own label from the ground up (WDK Records) He kicked off early 2020 with a string of similar beat tapes (Tau Upsilon Phi, Thee First Take, Thee Loner, Stringz) that continued to chart his sound, featuring collaborations with Nemraps and many more. Sometimes Aggressive yet sometimes soulful, Wiz’s Beats feels like a natural step in the evolution of southern hip-hop beats, echoing both Tay Keith and Zaytoven as well as Turbo and other Southern producers
