The Come Up: Dyme-A-Duzin


On being a student of the game:

As a youngin’, as a younger youngin’, I feel like I put in a lot of hard work just to become someone that was considered a serious rapper or a real talent. I put in work everyday. I remember being in junior high school in the summer. No internet. Just straight going to the store and buying beat CDs and coming back to the house and recording all day. Knocking out albums in a week as a youngin’. Just writing and making song concepts. Not necessarily the best song concepts, or the most complex topics or anything. But it was what I knew and it was what I needed to get out. At the same time I was doing YouTube videos and trying to get my vision out because I always had an imagination. When I started on the rap thing, I just wanted to bring what was in my head out.
