Energetic, Original, Explosive, Hilarious, and Over the Top are just some of the words used to describe hip-hop recording artist that is Jermaine “Twenty Mill” Davis.
Born in Kingston, Jamaica August 14, 1987 he now calls Toronto home and blends elements of Hype and ‘Gangsta’ to create some of the most refreshing music to date. His natural love for hip-hop, passion for creating music and a notable confidence makes the hard look easy. Twenty comes from a family of musicians, from whom he draws inspiration. The hunger to be on top is unyielding thanks to the support of his family. Other musical influences are 2pac, Biggie, and Lil Wayne.
Early in his career,Twenty learned that the industry is made for only the strongest and that has kept him alert and hungry.“When I first started, everybody’s like ‘Oh, he’s not strong enough, he sounds like this rapper”. When you hear a new voice you not gonna really take him in. like basically they weren’t listening to my lyrics, they were listening to my beats.‘Cuz if you were listening to my lyrics you’ll know that I have my own style.“
Twenty exercises his versatility with occasional acting gigs. He has done background acting on the small screen shows like Happy Town and various independent films.
Laying down some of the hardest tracks and peppering every verse with some of the most descriptive wordplay has garnered him attention from Toronto's Underground and a plethora of the rap game's legends. 2009 was a productive year for Twenty Mill with the release of two mixtapes:“From the Bottom to the Top” released April 2009 and “How You Go Stop Me Now” released June 2009.
Twenty spent the last 2 years in the studio working on his version of upfront, raunchy, yet catchy hook driven original material. Twenty Mill is a truly self-made independent artist. His debut self-titled street album “Twenty Mill” was released July 25, 2009. The album is produced by Young Wonda, engineered by Phame One and features the singles “Go”,“Lights, Camera, Action”, and “I Do This For My City”. “Go” was featured on the WBLK Unsigned Hype Showcase in 2009.
In 2010, Twenty Mill took his journey to the next level with aggressive marketing and self-promotion. In March, Twenty released the mix tape “THE OMEN”. The first single is a collaboration with fellow hip-hop artist, Phantom, called “You”. It was well received on social media platforms and followed by a video, which was released online on July 27, 2010.
2011 saw Twenty Mill back in the studio. He is set to release the mixtape STATE OF MIND on May 13th.
