Anthony Baeza, also known by his stage name Baeza, is a Mexican American singer, actor rapper, hip hop producer, and songwriter from Fresno, California.[1] By 2011 Baeza was releasing his own singles and music videos,[2] and his first mixtape, Dough and Dro, came out in early 2013.[1] He has toured throughout the United States as a headliner at venues such as the Veterans Memorial Auditorium in Compton Fresno, and after the late 2013 release of his Right on Time EP he was featured as an "artist on the way to the top" in The Fresno Bee.[3] Currently signed to Dope House Records Empire Distribution,[4] he has collaborated with hip hop artists such as Clyde Carson and Baby Bash, and in June 2015 he is due to release a full-length version of his The Man EP on EMPIRE Recordings.[2] Baeza operates his own fashion line, Striktly Business, out of Fresno.[5]

Early life

Anthony Baeza was born in 1993 in Fresno, California,[3] where he also spent his childhood.[4] He started making music at around age thirteen, picking up hip hop production as a hobby. He soon started rapping over his own beats, and by seventeen he had decided he wanted to pursue music as a career.[3] Encouraged by family members such as his father, early musical inspirations included hip hop artists such as Tupac.[1]

Music career

Early singles (2011-2013)

By 2011, Baeza had started to release his own singles, and one of his first music videos came out in December for "Far From Ready."[2] In 2012 he also released videos for his tracks "Real Feelings," "Woah," "Can't Love You," and in December, "Slow Down."[2] As of early 2013, Hit the Floor Magazine claimed that "Far From Ready" was one of his most popular songs. According to Baeza, the track was written "about an ex-girlfriend. We had broke up and all these feelings just hit me... and when I go through real life stuff, I write them in a song and that's how it came about."[1]

Dough and Dro and Right on Time (2013)

His first full-length mixtape, Dough and Dro, came out in early 2013.[1] The mixtape was hosted by DJ Meek.[6] At that point Baeza had worked with artists such as Clyde Carson and Kap G,[4] and though he was receiving attention from two major record labels, he chose to "hold off on signing to any record labels until I put out my first studio album."[3] The Dough and Dro mixtape would be released on iTunes near the end of the year, on his own Baeza Music label.[2] He also has his own fashion line, Stiktly Business, based out of Fresno.[5]

For his 2013 Far From Ready tour Baeza performed thirteen stops in the United States with a DJ, ending the tour as a headlining act at the Veterans Memorial Auditorium in Fresno. He performed for a second time at the Fresno Veterans Memorial Auditorium to debut material from his new EP, Right on Time, which was his first studio album. The album was recorded at Tyme Studios in Fresno,[3] and he described the project as being the first he had "sat down and made with a purpose," as compared to making mixtapes on the road. The first single was a remix of "Slip N Slide," one of his more popular songs. Baeza supported the new album on tour with 2Chainz, and after the late 2013 release of Right on Time he was featured as an "artist on the way to the top" in The Fresno Bee.[3]

Recent projects (2014-2015)

Currently signed to Empire Distribution,[4] in September 2014, his track "Roll With Me" was released with a feature by emcee Clyde Carson. It was later included on his second EP The Man,[7] which came out on Baeza Music in August 2014.[2] He shared stages with Roach Gigz on the California Nights Tour in the fall of 2014, and he also collaborated with Baby Bash on a video for "Certified Freaks."[4] Baeza was a featured artist on "Like That" by DJ ASAP, which was included on the publication Noisey's On the Roof Vol. 1 mix in October 29, 2014. Wrote VICE, "with known factors Sage The Gemini and Baeza, as well as up-and-comers Symba, The Kid Ryan, and Milla, 'Like That' is a hit, and with ASAP's connections, [the song] already getting play up and down the coast."[8] That month he was featured on the cover of Goder Magazine.[9]

In July 2015, Baeza is due to release a full-length version of his The Man EP on EMPIRE Recordings.[2]
