Teezo is one rising star that's hard to overlook — especially since his hair is twisted with what looks to be several dozens of metal nails. He's rocked this look for years.

"I was looking around my childhood home and there were a lot of nails lying around because my dad’s a handyman. And then I had the idea to put the nails on the brim of my hats and on my boots. I probably had about 10 nails in my hair for that. And from there, it just kept getting heavier and heavier," Teezo explained to Vogue.

A lot of music artists in this day and age have alter-egos that they use from time to time. Beyonce has Sasha Fierce, Donald Glover has Childish Gambino, the list goes on and on.

Teezo has one too — he goes by the name of Eugenius Hanes. This side of him has played a huge part of his career thus far.

"Eugenius is Teezo from the perspective of the outside looking in," he said in an interview with Dazed. "So I think it’s just all perspectives. It’s another way to communicate, you know?"
