Better Late Than Never
Trak Wiz, aka David Berry, was born on August of 1978 and raised in Oxnard, California. He always had a passion for music due to influences from his father who was a night club Dj in the 80's, and his mother who was always playing records such as Earth, Wind, and Fire, Prince, Michael Jackson, etc. At age 12, David began to pursue his love for music. In the sixth grade he joined the school band as a percussionist (or drummer) with just a remo practice drum pad and dream. In high school David began to experiment with hip hop. He recorded his lyrics into a Sony tape deck rapping over his favorite instrumentals on cassette tapes. Being that he didn't have a microphone he used headphones from his walkman as a mic (didn't know you could do that, huh). After completing 7 years of formal music training, David at age 17 was faced with a decision most high schools seniors are faced with, what to do after graduation. At that time David didn't really take his musical talent that serious and enlisted in the U S Navy. It was there that he once again regained his ambition for music. David began writing poems which turned into rap lyrics. After he was discharged from the military, He met his former business partner Robert. Together they founded a recording studio in Oxnard, CA. It was then that Trak Wiz, began to dabble into producing. He would spend the next 4 years as a rapper/producer for the studio, working with various Oxnard City talents. As 2003 came to an end, so did his affiliation with the studio due to 'creative differences' and financial hardship. He had given up music altogether at that time, and got 3 jobs were he worked an astonishing 90 hours a week trying to recoup his losses and mainly get his mind off all the failure he had incurred in music In mid 2004 Trak Wiz got a call from his friend Josh aka Kama, who was also a local Oxnard rapper about his future involvement with music. That call once again sparked Trak Wiz's drive to pursue music once again, but this time by himself. He would be the owner, rapper, and the producer for what is now Munky face entertainment which is now based out of Las Vegas, NV. Trak Wiz has a goal to be the most sought after producer for hip hop, R&B, or whatever else he's feeling at the time. So what ever kind of music you do, he will be down for the cause. In closing, 2007 is the year Trak Wiz has vowed to take the music industry by the ankles and shake for all it's worth. 'I make beats, man' will be the battle cry for his conquest and ascent the super stardom.
