Had a moment to catch up with the bro, the LOCHNEZMONSTA, D-N-E-Z, aka Dennis the Menace. We met up at his apartment in the city of Gardena, CA where he went to school growing up and currently does full time dad duties for his 2.5 year old daughter, Stone - grown man shit. Between work and family time, he still finds time to create and record music as both a solo artist and with his duo-cult-rap group Got Damage, which if you've been following at all, you know some really good and alternative hip hop music has been coming out of that camp. See their latest video for "Call of the Wild" here.
He's a bit of a DIY King as his diverse talents lead him to create on the production boards, the writing side, live performances, fashion styling and he also dabbles in video production which has given him a different calling card that people are pursuing him for. Overall, whether on the boards, writing and rapping on others' records, creating videos, fashion styling -- his growing credits list includes projects with Got Damage (of course), El Prez, Chris Focus, Sterling Victorian -- he's always lending his full artistic vision to a variety of projects and they are as diverse as it sounds.
Check out "Hard Trap ft. Chris Focus" below from his SoundCloud and his fashion styling, art direction and video production over at The Highly Regarded.
