Dae Debuts Powerful Emotion & Chill Hip-hop Soul


Dae is an emerging Hip-hop artist from the heart of New York City. Although the young rapper is only 18 years-old, we started making music when he was just 7. Now, after years of refining his sound, the emcee is making his professional debut. Among his inspirations, the rapper lists cutting edge Hip-hop artists like Drake, Sheff G and Cordae. We can hear their influence in his smooth Alt/Hip-hop groove.

“What Happened to Me” is the brand new single from Dae, released worldwide to all major streaming services on June 11, 2021.  On the track, he mixes an old-school Boom Bap beat with a jazzy guitar and bass combo for a mellow Chill-Hop groove. The emcee answers that mellow vibe with rapid-fire rhymes delivered with a laid-back flow and an expert technique that belies his status as a newcomer. He delivers a freestyle narrative about his determination to achieve his dreams despite the negativity and the haters that surround him.

No matter who tells you, you can’t do something, pay them no mind and keep going. Anything is possible. Chase your dreams and never settle for less.
