Praised for his passion and intensity; respected for his drive and
hustle, CEO of record label Misfits Entertainment and
promotional/marketing firm Smash Brothaz Entertainment, D.A The
Future, has captivated the ears of listeners worldwide.

Originally from Van Nuys, California, Derek D.A Anthony ventured
across the country with family to a small town known as Amityville in
Long Island, New York. His father, who was a lyricist for a church
choir, ignited Anthony’s musical interest and shortly after, pen to
paper, Anthony began writing music of his own. It was then, by the
young age of ten that Anthony realized his soul purpose was in his
verses and that music would soon become his life. As his confidence
grew and his style developed, D.A The Future emerged, taking on talent
shows and winning several battles. By the age of fifteen, he had
solidified his position in the rap game as sharp MC. Nothing short of
fate, D.A’s compelling relationship to the entertainment industry was
evident. As his passion and hunger for success grew, the hustler
performed anywhere his music would be heard. Portrayed as the ultimate
party-starter and captivating storyteller, D.A The Future is
furthermore illustrated as a conscience thinker with the powerful gift
of a poet.

Opening for artists such as MGK at Gramercy Theater, Pusha T and Cyhi
the Prince at The Hiro Ballroom and Freeway at NYC’s 2011 Dunk XChange
event, D.A The Future proved that he had a voice and was determined to
make a statement. Long Island Music Awards dubbed D.A The Future as
2010’s Best Male Artist and awarded him 2011’s Best New Video for his
single Take A Look featuring Shea The Doll. In addition, D.A took
first place at First Look Sessions showcase and his single Addicted
was featured on 2011 Blackstonian Music Compilation. as well as releasing 2 mixtape projects Marchmadness 31 freestlyes for the month of march and Yougn Witn Attitude Vol 1 hosted by Tape Masters Inc With perseverance
and drive, D.A The Future, is now set to continue to
make his mark in the industry with the refusal of being overlooked.


“Check this rising hip hop star, who’s taught himself how to be a mogul standing only in his early twenties. D.A. self-handedly sold 10,000 copies of his previous two mixtapes EACH and just released his latest, “Youngin Wit An Attitude” hosted by Tape Masters INC. He’s not just your average rapper, however, he’s a business man; he owns two companies, Misfits Entertainment and Smash Brothaz Entertainment, but his flow is one of the hardest and deserves the most attention.

“So I recently got a chance to get an exclusive interview with an artist by the name of D.A. The Future. I asked him a few questions about his life and the kind of person he is, and I was surprised at how humble he is. Hit the jump for the full interview and an exclusive off his upcoming album, Youngin’ Wit’ a Attitude, set to drop October 31st.”
