Suice Da Connect
CEO of Grown Man Biz Music Inc., Suice has been a veteran of the entertainment industry for close to 20 years dating back to his days as a member of the street team for Bad Boy Records. The Harlem native was known and respected in the streets for always having solid plugs, be it luxury vehicles, hotels rooms or any other concierge requests for service, Suice was the connector that joined forces. Working his way up the ladder through various crews and collaborations, the streetwise CEO combined the first three letters of the names of his past collectives G.M.B. to create Grown Man Business once he realized the importance of monetizing his relationships and taking his passion to the next level. Having worked in radio street promotions, Suice has been instrumental in the careers of artists including Ryan Leslie, Lyfe Jennings, CeeLo Green, TGT, Ginuwine, Special Ed, Elle Varner, Syleena Johnson and Case to name a few. As the GM of Special Events of KWL/Playbook Ltd. he also champions the cause for brand strategy at SX Liquors. As a writer, producer and go getter, Suice plans on creating his own carbon copy footprint in entertainment while helping his roster of artists build a lasting legacy in entertainment.
