The young man with the ironic moniker, known as Dyme-A-Duzin is a musical

Wunderkind and clearly music's next, big superstar! Hailing from Brooklyn, New York he's a musical prodigy who was singing in church choirs as early as 9 years old.

 He comes from a rich, family lineage of natural performers. His Grandmother was a backup singer for the Isley Brothers and his Mother, a singer in the gospel group, Rizn. That soulfulness and an almost tangible spirituality can be heard in his music.

 Another major influence is his mentor, Q the Prophet, a gospel MC who actually taught him song structure and gave him his MC name.  "Rappers come a dime a dozen and I'm striving to be the artist that always stands out”.  Dyme-A-Duzin easily achieves that goal.

solo project, 20=X, caught the ear of Dante Ross. One of the producers

that contributed multiple tracks to 20=X, Plain Pat gave Dyme-A-Duzin's

demo to Dante Ross. Ross, a legendary music executive and producer,

who is one of the key figures in creating the golden age of hip hop has

signed and worked with De La Soul, Busta Rhymes and Latifah. Ross

heard those same previews of greatness in Dyme-A-Duzin’s rhymes.


Dyme-A-Duzin is the perfect bridge between classic rap music and the sound of a new

millenium. No matter if he’s performing with a band, as the lead singer

of the Artist's Collective, Phony Ppl or collaborating with other artists,
