About Dez Nado
Born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida, Dez Nado was introduced to what was then just the hobby of rapping at the age of 11. Since then, he has grown into an authentic prospect in the rap game. He saw his first successes early on as an independent artist; generating a fan base by plugging his own projects at local shops and hot spots, as well as booking, promoting, and organizing his own shows by the age of 19, Dez Nado began to break out of the local scene and shine in bigger markets like Atlanta, Orlando, and Las Vegas (as evidenced by the feature interviews and fans calling in on his latest projects “Freestyle Filez: Volume 2” and “Freestyle Filez: Volume 1”). Not only does he stand out lyrically, but he’s also a college student, former DJ of his own college radio show and current radio programming specialist at the largest university in Florida, producer/studio engineer, self-started CEO, and publisher. His name is much more than just a name; it has become something that he lives by.
Currently, Dez is pushing his latest mixtape album, “Freestyle Filez 2?, the follow up for his 2011 mixtape album "Freestyle Filez 1" both available for free listen/download on his website www.whoisdeznado.com;
His music videos (www.youtube.com/deznado), online TV shows (http://www.ustream.tv/channel/vipsquadtv), and thousands of plays/views accompanying both have all become indicators of Dez Nado’s versatility, one-of-a-kind work ethic, and growing popularity. With a steady, unshakeable “grind state of mind”, Dez is known to deliver from the smallest 16 bar verse to the full length LP; he’s not a threat, he’s a promise!
