After being incarcerated for 9 years, Sauce Wood came home adamant about removing himself from the revolving door of imprisonment. With his love for music, he strived to pursue his passion as a career. Like many artists, he knew he had star quality but did not know where to turn. As he began on his music journey he had his run ins with “teams” whom lacked knowledge, organization, and the push he needed. Knowing Sauce Walka since childhood, Wood remained in contact with him.
Soon after settling in, Sauce Walka reached out to Wood eventually recruiting him to TSF (The Sauce Familia). It was during this time, Wood began to learn about the importance of marketing, algorithms, engagement, and the business aspect of the music industry. Wood soon found himself immersed in confidence; dressing better and more focused than ever. During my conversation with Sauce Wood he stated, “It doesn’t matter your situation. Sauce will pull you in if he sees your worth.”
With the blueprint and opportunities Sauce Wood has been presented with, he is able to live comfortably off of his music while taking care of his family. It became very clear during the interview that Sauce Walka and the entire TSF team are a family, breaking bread together. Sauce Wood was happy to share that he has a contract that ensures a 50/50 split digitally and keeps 100% profit from shows and features. This is unheard of in today’s industry, making Sauce Walka and TSF a prodigy in the business. Sauce Wood mentioned, “Sauce Walka makes sacrifices for his team. I love him. If you’re the chosen one around him, you’ll feel the love too.”
