“Grind hard until you no longer have to introduce yourself”
Our September Ambitious Man of The Month is doing just that with a recent release of his first mix tape titled “Born to Win” hosted by DJ Young Mase and DJ Dinero. His art work is very eye catching with a checkered flag, translucent 100 dollar bill while he looks ever so chill yet deep in thought in what looks to be a vehicle, letting us know that he’s in a race and he’s in it to win it– well the look on his face tells us he knows he’s going to win! Upon the release of his mix tape, i saw several blogs jump board and i was thinking like, this guy is covering ground…and fast. Earlier this Summer, I’d conducted a short interview with him after meeting him at a fashion and music event where i was blown away by his energy. I was able to chop it up with him some time after that when he stopped by a friend of mines graduation party. It shows that although he’s constantly pounding the pavement and about his business, he’s never too busy to network and talk to his fans through the Ambitious Mix Blog. He’s cool people to say the least and that’s why I’m excited to give you a little bit more of the Ypsilanti Rapper by the name of DASH (IG: @ayeitsdash)
DASH: I grew up watching artists like 50 cent, Lil Wayne and Jay-Z. I was heavily influenced by them to write rhymes and I never took it that serious until I recorded my first song and the high I got from being in the booth had me addicted ever since.
AM: Where are you from?
DASH: I was born in Buffalo,NY & moved to Ypsilanti in 2006
DASH: I’m working on an EP that’s set to drop this Winter and it’ll have some notable features on it. I’m excited for that…and yeah we’re almost done shooting the video.No release date yet though
AM: Lastly, what’s something that you want your fans to know or those aspiring to be an artist?
