Dante Stackz releases his debut single “Casino Life”
Dante Stackz is a hip-hop artist from Dorchester, MA. He’s been writing music since the age of 9 years old. Trouble has always been around him, and since his father left his life through a bad divorce and abusive home with his Mom, he had to find his way to grow. His debut single, “Casino Life” is produced by Mike Hector.
Inspired by 2pac, Jay-Z & T.I., Dante Stackz began taking his stories and converting them into raps. His older cousin gave him some encouragement; it was the only thing positive he grew to like. At 15, he started performing at talent shows at his high school Dorchester High. There he learned to be a versatile artist – Rapper, Songwriter, Actor, Spoken Word & Model. He dropped out in his senior year after being harassed & arrested by the cops and was not able to go back. From there, he went on to obtain his GED.
Before dropping out, his first official song was “Get Em” while in his senior year. The song gave him more confidence because every time he performs the energy from the crowd was crazy. At 18, he started to get serious by performing at colleges and local clubs. He wanted more so he started opening tours for a lot of New York artists such as; Lloyd Banks, Styles P, Chinx, Joe Budden -just to name a few. What inspires him to create music? It is from growing up in an abusive home with his father fighting him. Often, it seemed like there was no way out until the divorce happened between his mom and him.
Never Give Up
Teachers would give up hope telling him to drop out because they felt he would not become more. Watching close friends and people from his neighborhood pass or getting shot up multiple times made him come up with the hashtag #NoBreaksSeason to grind even harder for himself and those who will never get the chance to see their dreams manifest. His nephew, Cameron transitioned on and his fighting spirit reminded Stackz to take nothing for granted. Lastly, his daughter Layla inspires him to make a better life for her and not repeat the mistakes he grew up in and made. Now at the age of 22, he is determined to break out with his first official project #NoBreaksSeason will be coming early 2018.
