Biography

In the wake of nu hip hop, Detroit native Denmark Vessey maintains the signature “soft-as-concrete, beautiful/ugly” Motor City sound all too well. From d-boy to b-boy, armed with industry quality music production, Denmark makes his presence felt in a lasting matter behind the boards and on the mic.

Initially, Denmark just rhymed over beats. However he developed an interest for making beats and pursued his new passion fervently. Over the years, hard work coupled with progressive leaps in production enabled Denmark to work with and provide music for some of Detroit’s most respected artists. DJ Houseshoes (official tour dj for Mayer Hawthorne), Slum Village, Guilty Simpson (Stones Throw), Danny Brown (Fools Gold), Dwele (Grammy Award Winning Singer for Kanye West’s Flashing Lights), Monica Blaire, L’Renee, and D12, just to name a few.

In 2008, along with Crown Nation (www.crown-nation.com) homie/member Quelle Life, Denmark relocated to Chicago and released the crew’s debut LP “Slut Bag Edition”. Along with the help of DJ Houseshoes, the LP landed on the shelves of the much venerated/now shuttered Fat Beats as one of the last albums released at their NY and LA stores. In 2010, Denmark took the reigns of his career and was instrumental in bringing legendary hip hop group Slum Village to Chicago for their farewell performance. This move not only provided Denmark a higher profile locally, but augmented his D.I.Y. ethos. Now Denmark (Crown Nation activist/Rapper/Song Writer Producer) is seizing every day and bringing back ’96 through beats, love and rhyme.
