Dagda / Bio

From DownRiver, Dagda emerged on to the local Detroit music scene in 2010. Known for stage presence, flow, and word play, Dagda showed versatility in 2011 with multiple press & radio features. That August he released the independent mix tape "J.E.A.H. (Jealousy Envy And Hate)" featuring Hopsin & more. Dagda ended the year signing with Paradime's Detroit based label Beats At Will Records. Press and radio coverage continued in 2012 as Dagda performed along side the top acts in Hip Hop across the Mid West. In March 2012 he was featured on the label compilation "Support Your Local B.A.W. Vol 1. with a list of Detroit heavy hitters. That summer Dagda made his acting debut with the DownRiver Detroit independent film company "Ring of Fire Entertainment", and will be featured in two more projects scheduled for 2013. Look for new material, shows, and more from Dagda this year. "I have faith in GOD and I’m surrounded by great family, friends, and fans. The music is a blessing."
