Terminally Ill Artist "Lewi" set to Release Debut Single

Share Article

Wisconsin music artist is making a name for himself crossing paths with Eminem, Kobe Bryant, G Eazy & even 2018 Grammy nominated artist Logic while bringing people together for a noble cause along the way.

"Lewi is one of the best lyricists I've heard and his style reminds me of the angst of early Eminem. He's got what it takes to make it." Says Damion "Damizza" Young

“I’m literally the sickest rapper you’ve ever heard,” says Lewi with his mischievous grin.

The 23-year-old Wisconsin native has Cystic Fibrosis, a disease that affects about 70,000 people worldwide. “I want to spread awareness about CF. But, I have CF it doesn't have me - so I see it as an opportunity through adversity. I'll just use it to OUR benefit (those affected by CF) to open doors to awareness, and use my music to bring all people together," Lewi said from a studio in Santa Barbara, California.

Nevertheless, Lewi is a young businessman with a hustler's mentality. For his first deal, Lewi joined forced with distribution and promotion legend Damion "Damizza" Young. Lewi's new single "FWU" will drop December 14, via iTunes, Spotify, Amazon and ALL digital platforms including on his website: http://www.itslewi.com. Damizza adds, "We wanted to call out the big guns and give Lewi the best shot as a label possible, so we tapped super-producer, Paul Cabbin (Chris Brown, Wiz Khalifa, and Ty $), who was a perfect fit to produce his new single."

Lewi is part of Damizza’s new joint-venture label, Langley West along with partner Ramon "Lil' Bams" Cardanes. "Lewi is with us, put simply, because he's great at what he does -- he’s a star. Cystic Fibrosis was only the gateway. If I didn't see his Instagram feed, and him recording in a hospital (with portable recording studio), this wouldn't normally catch my attention so fast, but...how creative is that? He was hooked up to an IV drip of antibiotics in a hospital while making songs and even an entire music video! It showed dedication to his craft -- he takes it to a new level," Damizza said.

Damizza has been in the music business for over 30 years, and has worked with Michael Jackson, Jay-Z, Puff Daddy, Eminem and EA Sports. His music was featured in the Fast N' Furious movie franchise. Damizza has produced, promoted, or been featured on over a billion records with the likes of Mariah Carey, Migos, Bone Thugs n Harmony, Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre and Korn.

Damizza admits, "It has been a humbling experience, and I'm thankful I can at least use the past to help future talent; or at least help foster its growth in these young artists and young people. We have a shortage of mentors, lack of programs at critical ages, and in this day and time, apprenticeship is a lost art. I have been very lucky to be a part of a lot of music history," Damizza says, "I hope to see more made, and am confident that Lewi's talent will take care of that."

"Damion has had his hand in Trillions (that's right, with a 'T'') of combined radio spins, social media impressions, sales and has worked or knows and or met literally everyone; and I'm so honored my first release is on their new label, Langley West with him & Bams," Lewi says.

But, with his medical costs (Lewi spends 2 weeks every other month in the hospital) this year alone, he's hopeful to sell some records. "And heck, if I get rich, we WILL find a cure," says Lewi, "I'd like to get out of debt, and make it a great Christmas for other CF patients."

Damizza & Bams didn't charge to be featured on the single, and will donate 100% of their proceeds to the cause from their personal sales. "It's a hard time for healthcare, and that was nice of them to do. I hope it doesn't get to the point where I or ANY CF patient simply can't afford treatment anymore - THAT is a scary thought in this current political climate," adds Lewi.

The single release date of December 14 has a special significance to Lewi. It was the date his Mother passed from complications of cancer in 2014. "Lewi has had a tough life. But, how he carries himself you would never know it. Always a smile & the most positive attitude," said Bams.

"FWU" will drop December 14 via iTunes, Spotify, Amazon & all digital platforms including on his website: http://www.itslewi.com
