Randy Dean, aka Tha Dean, is an up and coming rapper in the Des Moines, Iowa rap scene.
Hailing from Little Rock, Arkansas, Tha Dean hit the Des Moines scene 3 years ago and
hasn’t stopped since.

Tha Dean started showing interest in rap and music early on. He would beat on tables in class,
working out his own rhythms and rhymes. He moved up to freestyle sessions in his high school
cafeteria and always had the crowd moving. He took classes in High School to better acquaint
himself with the art of editing and worked in “basement studios” perfecting his art. After
competing in a few talent shows, Tha Dean started taking his music and talent seriously.

Tha Dean is currently signed with Illyricum Entertainment and is managed by Wade Bassford
whom he signed with in November of 2006, and in 2008 released his first
CD Tha Dean Of All Things. Since signing with Illyricum Entertainment, Tha Dean has been
performing around the local bar scene; solo and with other rappers from the area. His first
show was performed at Last Level Lounge in Waterloo, Iowa and he’s been turning up the heat
and making heads bop at every venue since then. He is a regular performer at Vaudeville Mews
, Java Joes, and co-hosted open mic nights at Bella Noche Lounge. He was an opening
performer for the recent Plies concert at Val Air Ballroom, in Des Moines as well.

Tha Dean aired March 10, 2009 in Atlanta, GA on "The Big Bad Gorilla Show" on Comcast Cable.
Tha Dean, as a member of Illyricum Entertainment, has taken on the role of producer as well as an
artist and has helped produce works for the following tracks:
Pussy Pop – Horizon,
Live This Life – NineXRuff,
and produced most tracks on the upcoming album UnExpected from Jab.
He has also produced works for PaperChasers, Choc, Darnell B. and Ill Will (DMI).

Tha Dean has proven himself to be an all around performer with the drive and ambition to do
what it takes to get the job done. His hard hitting lyrics and bone crushing beats prove that he’s
a serious artist and the only direction he’s going is straight up!
