Brillz has lead his Twonk revolution as something that is more than just music. The out of this world lifestyle is something that fans have gravitated towards since its very conception. Now, Brillz is not only a leader in music but also in fashion and vaporizers with his unique Twonk Juice company. When Brillz gets into something, he goes balls-to-the-wall, which is why he’s been able to diversify his brand so well and see success in separate fields.
Recently, Brillz visited the dojo to give us a lesson on Twonk, talk a little about his history, and share what’s to come. Although he is wrapping up his Twonk Di Nation tour, Brillz had some extra time for some bonus questions. If you missed him on his tour, don’t worry – he has plans to get around throughout the rest of the year. You can also expect some more tunes to come out, but before we get a head of ourselves, let’s dive in to what Brillz had to say to us ninjas in the dojo.
