Dee Day (aka Danny Rogers) is a talented lyricist, a versatile rapper, and a producer. He is "carving in stone" his mark in the Hip Hop entertainment industry. Dee Day was born on June 1, 1989, in the legendary musically driven city of New Orleans, Louisiana. He grew up with his parents and an older sister. The West side of town in which Dee Day and his family resided was over taken with illegal activities and consistent homicides. Dee Day witnessed so much mayhem he began writing as a way to mentally escape and express himself. The creative way in which he wrote allowed him to write poetry which led to his love for turning his poetry into music. This is what began his quest of being a successful rapper. Dee Day realized as a very young man that music was his lifeline in reaching his ultimate goal of bettering his life. According to him, "Music takes me into another place."
Listening to his inner voice that told him he could succeed, he began entering Rap battles. These Rap battles tested his lyrical skills and stage presence in front of large audiences. These Rap battles reaffirmed that he had the talent, bravery and support to become a "force to be reckoned with" in the highly competitive Hip Hop music industry. His songs held the attention of large crowds as he put his poetry into motion.
Dee Day always knew his lyrics were powerful to him but he began to understand that his words could also inspire others. His music was becoming a soaring career, he released successful mixed tapes. Notable musical industry producers and DJ's started to work with him. For instance, DJ Don Cannon a prominent Grammy award nominated Hip Hop producer and DJ cosigned two of Dee Day's mixed tapes.
There is a famous quote that is known among the writers, it states, "A poet needs pain more than pen to write a poem." Simply put, the more pain you witness the better writer you will become. Consequently, Dee Day is fortunate enough to have become a better writer but is unfortunate in what he had to lose to become one. Isnt it ironic? In 2015, his road manager was shot and killed, this traumatic experience led him to become a more conscious driven writer. He took to his beloved paper and pen to write, " Your life can change in an instant and you must live every moment to the fullest!"
