“The beat is my canvas and I get to paint my best version of a masterpiece…â€

When D-Eazy takes the mic, the pictures he creates come from real life.  His brand of hip-hop doesn’t cover up the pain or disguise danger with slick, empty rhymes.  But there’s hope along with heartache in his lyrics. High times, hard lessons, romance and redemption are all part of his vision. Whatever the mood or message, D-Eazy delivers the word straight, with style, swagger, and no apologies.

A rising star on the Hip-Hop scene, D-Eazy updates gangsta rap with honesty, confidence and a strong dose of faith. “My goal is to keep my lyrics positive, now more than ever,†he says. “I do that by showing that when we’re ready for change, we can evolve and turn negative situations into positive ones.†He keeps his point of view on street level: “A lot of rappers put down people who don’t make a lot of money or live the lifestyles they do. The message I’m trying to get across is that there are a lot of people struggling just to make it through one more day…â€

D-Eazy’s work combines old school rap influences with elements of R&B and alternative rock (Korn, Limp Bizkit, Rage Against the Machine, Linkin Park).  His natural flow and razor-sharp rhyme sense tap into a lifetime’s worth of experiences.

Born Desmond Robinson, D-Eazy grew up in Moreno Valley, a community just south of Los Angeles. He credits his third-grade teacher with encouraging him to develop his natural talents as a poet. By his early teens, he was using his writing to help escape the harsh reality of the streets.  Emulating role models like Ice Cube, Eazy-E, and LL Cool J, he channeled what he saw and experienced into rap lyrics that rang true and cut deep.

After moving to northern New Mexico in 2001, D-Eazy considered putting his writing and performing aside in favor of pursuing a more mainstream career. Fortunately, he was encouraged to keep making music by local talents Sand-Nauti and JD. Together, the three of them formed Topp Clique, a rap trio managed by Adam Lujan and Juan “Bigg Q†Montoya. D-Eazy recorded a pair of independent CDs with the group, The Main Event, and Re-Loaded.

Along the way, D-Eazy drew upon his new home for inspiration as his work continued to develop. “Although I was born and raised in California, I believe New Mexico has had the most influence on my music,†he says. “I try to add Spanish influence to give it a local twist. But more than anything, I try to focus in on the street lifestyle that I’ve experienced since moving here.â€

After Topp Clique parted ways in 2003, Bigg Q and D-Eazy started the Mic Check Entertainment label, which released D-Eazy’s debut solo album Ebonix.  The two of them continued to work together via Undefined Records before parting ways amiably in 2008. By that time, Bigg Q had introduced D-Eazy to Alejandro Gomez, CEO of Albuquerque’s Crank It Up
