G-Eazy, Pitchfork called it his “strongest project yet” while Pigeons & Planes exclaimed, “[One Night Only] is the kind of project you can put on and run through without skipping any songs. Cousin Stizz just leveled up.”

About Cousin Stizz:
26-year-old Boston bred rapper Cousin Stizz is cementing himself as one of the top up-and-comers in hip-hop. Born and raised in a rough part of Boston’s Dorchester neighborhood, Stizz was forced to mature quickly. At the age of 13, Stizz was faced with a harsh reality when his close friend was killed by a gunshot wound, causing Stizz to misbehave. His mother then had to give him an ultimatum; he could either attend military school or high school in the suburbs to stay out of trouble. Stizz chose the latter, which served as both a huge culture shock and turning point in his life. While there, Cousin Stizz learned a lot about himself and how to adapt to others and his different surroundings. His schooling and experiences, which he calls the best four years of his life, greatly helped to shape his musical journey.
As a teenager, Cousin Stizz enjoyed freestyling and liked to rap for fun, but didn’t think much about making it a life career until his friend Michael Christmas started to become popular in the hip hop community. With the inspiration from his friend’s success, he owed it to himself and his family and friends to take his talent seriously and started recording music. This led to the release of his first mixtape Suffolk County in June 2015, which has received over 12 million listens on SoundCloud alone. He followed up Suffolk County with MONDA, a mixtape dedicated to and named after his good friend who passed away from cancer. In July 2017, Stizz released his critically acclaimed major label debut, One Night Only which was led by “Headlock” ft. Offset and follow-up “Lambo.”
The rapper has dominated various stages and toured all over the country, including Day N Night Fest and ComplexCon in Los Angeles and has received press coverage from outlets such as Pitchfork, Complex, Noisey, Pigeons and Planes, FADER, XXL and more.
