Success Muzik
Success Muzik “HIGHVIBES straight up changed my life. I would write songs in between deliveries and when I started being true to myself, being real, that’s when I blew up. I’m not trying to get any kind of record deal where artists only get a small percentage and they have to give up rights to their own music. Why would I, when HIGHVIBES pays me 100% of what I’ve earned and I get to keep my rights.”
