Tell us about your background getting to where you are today?
My name is Maximilian Rostopora, and I go by Milian Beatz. I have been in love with music for as long as I can remember. I grew up in Kyiv, Ukraine. My father used to play a lot of instruments. I began making music when I was 12 years after my father bought me my first guitar. I began performing at live shows, singing and playing with the guitar. I eventually learned how to play drums and piano, and I started performing with a band. I originally moved here in 2001, and then moved back to Ukraine in 2002. After my father passed away in 2012, I moved back to Los Angeles with my mother. I was constantly on the lookout for other artists to work and create with, but nothing was really happening. At that point, I took matters into my own hands and started making Hip-Hop beats on Logic and networking at various studios throughout Los Angeles. From there I met many artists that I still work with today and my manager, Barry Rosenblum, as well. From there, I have been blessed to work with artists from Atlanta, Los Angeles, and across the world. I am not even close to where I believe I will go.
How did you get into music?
My father played a lot of instruments and bought me my first guitar when I was 12. He taught me how to play a few chords and I have not stopped playing ever since. I began playing drums and piano shortly after.
What is the most challenging thing you have overcome in your life?

What do you want people to take away after listening to your music?
I want them to feel my soul, heart, and emotion that I put into the music. I don’t take the opportunities I have been given for granted, and I want people to know that I am hungry every single time they hear my tag on a beat.
Anything else you want the audience to know about you?
Everything I am doing is for a purpose. I want my music to last forever.
