After many years in the music business as a world renown beatboxer, Poizunus is now looking for another challenge. Since touring England in 2005 and performing at the Miami Winter Music Conference with industry heavyweights DJ Craze and Killa Kela in 2006, Poizunus has had a solid track record of both national and international success. Ranking in the top 10 at the World Beatboxing Championship in Germany and placing first at Scribble Jam’s 2007 Beatbox Battle, Poizunus has helped put the Canadian beatboxing scene on the map. In 2006, Poizunus was featured in Canada’s MuchMusic program “Music is My Life”. The show took a backstage look at Poizunus' life and the 604 Hip Hop Expo Beatbox Battle, where he also placed first. Since then, he has been featured in two MuchVibe commercials, and appeared on several television spots, including MTV Live Canada, CityTV’s Breakfast Television, MuchMusic’s RapCity and Going Coastal. He has also opened for many big name international acts such as Method Man, Busta Rhymes, DJ Jazzy Jeff and Obie Trice. Growing up, Poizunus was heavily influenced by his parents’ collection of soulful music as well as his cousin’s hip-hop compilations.
