For Style Misia there is no alternative. Who would have guessed that a troubled energetic kid from Long Beach, California would go on to turn his life into the soundtrack for the streets. Born & raised on the tough streets of Long Beach the poverty and gang violence did little to take him away form his gift of music, instead the struggle gave him a source of motivation that his 6'0'' husky frame would need to knock doors down in the hip-hop game. As a son of a Guamanian mother & a Mexican father, he was born into a musical family considering his father played lead guitar in their garage with his band in the 70’s and 80’s however, Misia's initial interest was in drawing, more specifically graffiti. When the hip-hop avenue of graffiti and DJing led him to discover RUN DMCs "Dumb girl" he was instantly dumb-founded by the thickness of the bass. Later, Too Shorts "Don't fight the feeling” caught his ear and he was hooked. When he learned that both tracks were made on a Roland TR-808 drum machine, he knew his calling would be in making music. In 1991 for the sake of him & his siblings, his family moved north to San Jose and the Bay Area would be where Misia would officially start his defiant musical career. Misia has seen his stock rise as a sought after producer, crafting high Profile bangers for the Multi-platinum likes of 50 Cent "Queens Pimp" to lacing gems for underground heavy weights Rasco & Ras Kass "Making the Rounds".

Style Misia made an impact in the mid 90's in the emerging Bay Area Underground Hip Hop scene. As a Producer/MC, he was apart of a local crew, Daysmen Empire, that musically hustled the West Coast Underground scene with the D.I.Y mentality, putting out tapes alongside other heavyweight crews such as the Living Legends and Project Blowed. After putting out material as a solo artist and with his group, he decided to fallback from being an artist. Around 1997, after his father told him that the real way he could make a career out of music was in producing, he made a commitment to his father that he would go full force with it. From there on he hit the grind hard with his production skills. He started off producing tracks for Scarub of the Living Legends, PEACE of Freestyle Fellowship and various Underground compilations. Fast forward a few years later, he moved to Manhattan, NYC in 2004 and continued his grind there. Around this time he caught the attention of several agents who guided him to expand his sound and to consider shopping his music to the Artists with budgets on Major and Indie labels. The 1st move was to hit New York's legendary mixtape scene & scored big when 50 Cent laced the mixtape favorite "Queens Pimp" on the highly anticipated DJ Whoo Kid Mixtape (G-Unit Radio Pt. 10, 2050: Before the Massacre). The momentum would continue to roll when Peedi Crakk of State Property (Roc-a-fella Records) would do the same on the Big Mike mixtape release (P.Crakk 4 Prez). After numerous underground placements & mixtape appearances (Scram Jones, DJ Unexpected & DJ Kochese), Misia decided to permanently move back to California to network out of Los Angeles.

Change is nothing new to the ever-evolving Style MiSia with more than a decade in the game, this track master has witnessed the landscape of hip-hop replenish itself over and over. MiSia is a self-contained entrepreneur whose endured the ups & downs & knows that consistency and quality is essential. Having recently laced tracks for newly major-label signed artists and underground heavyweights: Sean Price, Big Pooh of Little Brother, Devin the Dude, Fish Scales of Nappy Roots, Prince Jarmen, Verbal Kent, Equipto, Bash Bros, the Producer/Songwriter/MC shows no signs of slowing down.
