Meet Harvey Dent

Today we’d like to introduce you to Harvey Dent. 

Hi Harvey, so excited to have you on the platform. So, before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
I am born and raised from East Baltimore. I have been a DJ for about 20 years. I started at Warm Wednesdays, one of the longest-running open mics in the country, and went on to DJing other events in the city and expanded to nationwide. One event I was a part of was an annual tribute in Baltimore to the late J Dilla. As a lover of t-shirts, I wanted a dope shirt to wear on stage. At the time, the “Detroit Vs Everybody” shirt became popular in Detroit. I wanted to represent my city but with a colloquialism that is true Baltimore. I came up with the idea of “Baltimore Vs Y’all Whores” since “whores” is classic, unique Balitmore slang that can be a person, place, or thing. I wore it to the BMore Dilla tribute in Baltimore at Ottobar and people have been asking for the shirt ever since. 

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle-free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
I had to learn a lot about the business either through research or trial and error but overall, it has been a great ride. 

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your business?
If you ask different people, they will tell you different things. Nowadays some people only know me for the shirts, some people only know me as a DJ, and some know both. DJing has always been my passion but it is great that my love for shirts led to another part of my business. I just want to represent my city and have people be unified in the pride of the city they come from. 

How can people work with you, collaborate with you, or support you?
