Check Out Corey Davis’s Story

Today we’d like to introduce you to Corey Davis. Them and their team share their story with us below:

Dizzie Daz Davis better known to the Rap/Hip-Hop world as Dizzie Daz, whose hometown is Baltimore, Maryland (a.k.a. Bird City) is now sharing his love and passion for music from the beautiful island of Maui, Hawaii. He blesses the music entertainment industry by intertwining island sounds with city living and country morals. At a young age, writing poetry and growing up watching his cousin “P-Nut” (R.I.L.) play the drums in church and scratching on the turntables is what caught his attention in the music industry. A combination of his surroundings as a youngster and after embracing his most precious God-given gift, his voice, Dizzie Daz decided to begin his journey as an artist.

2-Pac, The Notorious B.I.G., Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Nas, Dr. Dre and Kool G. Rap were a few of his influential artists that molded the now known artist Dizzie Daz. They were the ones that set the path for him as a young up-and-coming artist.

Since October 2007, he has produced and written three (3) mixtapes, three (3) solo albums and contributed his musical talent in over 200 collaborations. When asked to describe his style of music, it was said to be an East Coast dirty country underground poetic swag.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Living in Baltimore City, losing my father at the age of 16, although he wasn’t in my life growing up, it hurt my heart and then losing my closest cousin, P-Nut, whom was one of my biggest inspirations, gave me the motivation and strength to apply my writing skills to express my feelings and share my experiences to the world thru music. I’ve struggled just as everyone struggles, with trials and tribulations, ups and downs, pain and heartache.

I went from living in a poverty-environment to country-style living down south in North Carolina. I experienced possible near-death situations, such as being at the wrong place at the wrong time, being misidentified, or hanging with the wrong crowd, which had me a shot at three times in my life. I was raised by my mother, who is the most strongest, courageous and amazing woman I know. As a single mother living on welfare, she did everything in her power to make sure we had a roof over our head, food on our table and clothes on our backs. She and my grandmother are the ones who made me the man I am today. My lyrics express my stride, my ambition, my struggle and my pain.

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
With the pandemic in place, I haven’t been in the workforce. I can positively say that during the pandemic, I was able to focus solely on my music and put in more work in the studio. I’ve also been able to produce a few videos with the help of my videographer, Ion Studios. With all the negativity going on all around the world, I leaned on all the positive things in my life, such as God blessing me everyday to wake up and giving me a breath of life, being able to hear the voice of my mom, making music, getting engaged, planning my wedding, spending tremendous amounts of needed family time.

As far as what I am most proud of, I would have to say that no matter what feedback I got, whether good or bad, I never gave up trying to pursue my dream and I continue to try and reach my life set goals. There were times that I wanted to give up and just move on from making music, but I always came back to it, I’ve always believed I was destined to be an entertainer in the music industry. I want to be a positive role model for generations to come, I know that times are changing but one thing I know is that being able to express yourself through music, art or anything that helps one to cope with life experiences, it’s worth your time, dedication and commitment. Music has gotten me through all the hardships throughout my life. I am blessed and highly favored.

What are your plans for the future?
Currently, in a few months, I will be getting married to my beautiful Hawaiian queen, who has been my backbone and guidance to take my music to another level. She pushes me to be better, always encourages me to strive for the best, never settle for less.

I hope that in the near future, bigger blessings will be bestowed upon my life, allowing me to engage in projects that will contribute to my life goal of leaving a legacy behind for my children and generations to follow.
