Dae Dae Remembers Hard Times on “Dem Days”
Dae Dae has a knack for creating turn-up anthems. Today, the Atlanta native releases his latest banger "Dem Days," which is produced by Nitti Beatz and DJ Spinz. Dae Dae reminisces about the days before the fame when he was in the trap and had to hustle. Over a minimalist beat featuring haunting keys, Dae creates another catchy record.
"Signed a deal they say Dae Dae Hollywood/I kept it real with my partner in the hood/Money coming I’m just stackin’ on ‘em/I aint dodgin’ I aint runnin from no nigga," he raps.
2016 was a great time for Dae Dae. He broke out last year with success of his singles “Wat U Mean” and “Spend It,” which recently got remixed by Young Thug and Young M.A last month. Dae Dae also dropped two tapes last year -- first 4 Reasons and then a full-length project with London on Da Track titled The DefAnition. “Spend It” was off the former and is his second most popular song on Spotify with over eight million plays.
We spoke to the 300 Entertainment artists for The Break and he told us about what his goal in music is.
"Being the best," he said. "Being the one they listen to. Having music that lasts long instead of having music that you can listen to down the road and touches people.”
