GIT Records’ Derty Den emerges as a new face in Hip Hop; a North Carolina native sets the tone for his state. Far from the perpetuated Southern bling, bling, booty call” rehash. At times, his swagger, energy, and flow can be reminiscent of the late, great Biggie Smalls, as he too is comfortable with size and confident in his abilities. In just a short time, Dirty Den has already done what few can accomplish – get people excited about music again.
Den’s true-to-life, story-telling style of rap has earned him Best Southern Artist credentials at the Underground Music Awards. Derty Den’s industry buzz is growing rapidly; with continuous coverage in major music publications such as The Source, Ozone, Tastemaker, Hip Hop Weekly, Juice, Yo Raps, St8 Hip Hop, largest French magazine, Rap Us and his most recent feature in the most coveted section on All Hip Hop(dot)com , “Breeding Ground.” Where Den talks about his record deal with independent label, Getting It Together, his international success and putting North Carolina back on the map.
His prolific street-anthem “Poppin,” is steadily building momentum on the Southern home-front, and throughout the Northeast. Derty Den has even gotten the attention of leading mixtape purveyor, Don Cannon (Apphiliates) to host his latest mixtape “Heat Wave”.
