Memphitz from "Toya: A Family Affair," whose actual name is Mickey Wright, stars in the BET reality docu-series. He is the boyfriend of Toya Carter.

Toya's love life has been the subject of much scrutiny and speculation because of her ex-husband Lil' Wayne's high profile. She needed a man who could rise above gossip blogs' white noise and protect her from the paps. Enter Memphitz. He's part media maven, part rapper, and an all-around good guy.

Before Mickey "Memphitz" Wright hosted any video shows or served as Toya's arm candy, he was signing acts and making moves at Arista Records, then Jive. Memphitz hosted "The Deal," the descendant of BET's "Rap City," along with DJ Diamond Cutz.

Memphitz isn't new to the music biz. He started his career as an intern, then a consultant for Arista Records. From there, he moved on up the corporate ladder to become Vice President of A & R at Jive Records. After signing successful acts like T-Pain, Memphitz got a distro deal with Jive and became the C.E.O. of his own group, Hitz Committee.

Memphitz is shaping up to be quite the renaissance man. Not only is he making moves behind the scenes with his own entertainment group, but Memphitz also laid down a verse on Huey and T-Pain's song "G-5."

Memphitz' work ethic and notoriety earned him the keys to his hometown, Memphis. The young music exec was honored in a ceremony in the summer of 2010 in which Mayor A.C. Wharton presented him with the key.

Toya and Memphitz met when they were still in a relationship with their significant others. When the breakups happened, they looked to each other for support and found something else: love.

Memphitz is close with his family in Memphis and frequently gives back to the community he grew up in by donating to community centers and schools.
