Rapper, writer and producer DeeDay (aka Danny Rogers) was born in New Orleans, Louisiana on June 1, 1989. DeeDay grew up on the West Side of New Orleans with his older sister and parents. He saw poverty, drug deals and crime in his neighborhood but DeeDay was determined to choose a different path. As he entered his teen years, DeeDay used writing and rapping as an escape. He says, “Music takes me to another place.” He began engaging in rap battles and realized that he could hold the attention of large groups with his words.
As he began to see the power of his words and rapping as a career, DeeDay released in New Orleans many street tapes before releasing four mix-tapes to the music community outside of New Orleans. The last two mix tapes were cosigned by DJ Don Cannon, a prominent Grammy Award nominated hip-hop record producer and DJ. DeeDay has performed and appeared in more than 100 cities including Houston, New York and Miami. DeeDay’s passion is evident as he performs with a raw, relentless drive living every word.
