Deangelo Dent is one of the most versatile artists that I have had the pleasure of personally meeting. He knows how to craft a sound for type of music listener. His soundscape covers a very wide range of topics, feelings, ambitions and goals. There are tracks for the club, tracks for the smokers, tracks that inspire, tracks that detail his determination and tracks that simply show his lyrical capabilities.
He’s worked with several local artists in the Jackson, MS area such as Dee Smith and Luigi Crucial; as well as producers and artists in Atlanta where he created his album “P.U.S.H: Promote Unity, Strive and Hustle” which can be purchased on both Itunes and Amazon and features one of my favorite songs by him, “Criticz”. I think it is one of his most fully realized songs on an album full of excellent songs. I’ve watched his development as an artist and he’s definitely at the top of his game right now.
I recently had the chance to reconnect with him for an interview to learn more about where he’s at personally and professionally:
Me: What inspired you to want to be an artist?
D Dent: Well nowadays everybody quick to yell Michael Jackson, which is cool because of how influential he was, but my inspirations vary. Besides Mike, Master P is a major inspiration 46 still doing it big. In my opinion that’s triumphant and I wanna be that laid back entrepreneur/visionary and help my children follow their hearts as well.
Me: What is your motivation to keep grinding?
Me: What is something that you feel people need to know about you as a person?
