Dego is one of those artists. The Bay Area bred
rapper exemplifies the independent grind with the release of his second album “Starship”. Something that strikes you immediately about Dego is the difficulty to put him in a specific category. He
declares:” I’m not hyphy, I’m not gangster and I’m not backpack. People always want to put artists into a box that they can understand. Music isn’t that simple.”
Music is fun. That is apparent in Dego’s music, as he delivers raps with an obvious ease, complimenting the feel-good production and catchy R&B choruses that carry them. He is a man of many
influences, growing up in the Bay Area, which has since long been home to a rich and flourishing music scene.
He started off as a producer for Reggaeton and Latin music sensation Catracho, working on his debut album “La Cachietada” in 2006. Taking his first steps in the music industry and learning many
valuble lessons, Dego went on to found his own label Camillion Entertainment in 2007 and signed his long time friend and musical partner Barnone, releasing a mixtape with him entitled “Western
Shortly thereafter, Dego released his critically acclaimed debut “The Album”, which featured heavyweights such as Too Short and The Jacka, along with singers Allen Anthony and Netta B. Urb magazine
described “The Album” and Dego’s production as “refreshingly crisp”, while Murder Dog refers to Dego as “one of the best new artists heard in awhile”
Not resting on his laurels, Dego and his label Camillion Entertainment continue to push the boundaries with his new release “Starship”, which is available in stores and on all digital retailers now.
The album features Kokane, Clyde Carson, Silk-E, Lee Fields, Allen Anthony, Viveca Hawkins, Barnone, and Ras Digital.
Dego currently has four videos off the album on YouTube, including the lead single “I Gotta Thang”, which was filmed in Panama and has been receiving great feedback online.
