Blaise is a native of Athens, Georgia and a die hard Georgia Bulldog. Being known as the cool kid in middle school that always had all the newest hot records, Blaise would create mix tapes and sell them around school to earn extra money which eventually financed his first set of turntables and mixer. His passion for Music and DJing along with his love of Sports consumed most of his time throughout High School and College. After obtaining Radio Broadcasting & Audio Engineering Degrees, Blaise eventually opened his own urban music retail shop in Athens before teaming up with legendary record label, Tommy Boy Records and Atlanta based LaFace Records where he helped build a grass roots buzz around the State of Georgia for the then unknown duo ‘OutKast’ whose debut album went on to take them to Multi Platinum status and eventually onto International fame. After relocating to Tampa, Florida, He quickly began to build a name for himself again after being hired by Interscope Records.
He then expanded his label roster to include Def Jam, Atlantic, Virgin and Warner Brothers, to name a few. Blaise’s undeniable relationships with Tampa’s heavy hitting DJs, Tastemakers, community groups, as well as club and local business owners has helped Street Laced create strong ties across the State of Florida. Proud to always represent his Georgia roots, Blaise now calls Tampa, Florida home with his wife, Vanida, and their 2 children, Marley and Parker.
