Speez fans have been waiting a long time for this one...and here it is!
Speez, born Ira Spann, was raised on the Southside of Chicago. Chicago being known for it’s heavy gang culture today was no different then either. His older brothers were in gangs but they sheltered him from that lifestyle. Growing up in Chicago gave Speez a different outlook on life. He was forced to be more mature than his age called for. Forced away from the gang life, Speez was pushed into music. Moving from Chicago to Houston at the age of 15, his journey in music began. The direction of his production would steer the content and style of his rapping. He became so good at production until his music got the attention of Houston based record label, Swishahouse Records. He began to make production for everyone, including the likes of then platinum artists, Paul Wall and Mike Jones. He produced 2 records of Paul Wall’s “The People’s Champ” major album debut. One of his records produced was “Oh Girl” which peaked at #35 on Billboard Hot 100, making it Paul Wall’s highest charting solo single to date which went Gold. Speez production helped catapult his album to number one on U.S. Billboard 200 with 176,000 sales first week. This became the highlight of Speez secular music career.
Speez now writes about his love for God, experiences on the road to salvation and his view of the world from a biblical standpoint. His love for Christ and his passion for music made it an easy decision to join IDJ…the ideal record label for his motives. His aspirations are to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ and at the same time challenge his creativity in hopes of touching the lives of many, lost and believers.
