FYI Houston got the chance to catch up with underground producer Hosea Mais, the founder of ISH beats (I Support Hosa’s beats). Hosea jumped around Texas and is now settled in Fort Collins, Colorado and the passionate producer has been working hard at his craft.
His sound is unique and truly different from most beats that producer’s these days are creating. With musical influences like Logic and experience playing metal music, Hosea is definitely one that thinks outside the box.
Hosea has already had a few collaborations with big name producers like SKI beatz, producer of Jay-Z’s Dead Presidents. The plan for Hosea is to continue working with the industry’s top producers and artist and to represent the ISH beats brand strong.
