CROWN DEAN MARTIN is the total package as a recording artist and producer. A true music lovers favorite rapper, but has the amazing ability to entice listeners of a wide variety. Each song he creates paints a vivid picture reminiscent of a young Willie Hutch, but with a edgier sound.
Born in FT Campbell, KY, but later moved to Baltimore, MD. As a child CROWN grew up on the road moving from state to state allowing him to experience all walks of life, which later plays a huge impact into the subject matter of much of his music. He was raised by his mother and adopted father ,who later passed away from cancer. Drug and alcohol abuse became his new escape, but the will power of a strong mother, seeing his biological father's drug addictions, and a gun related close call turned the young MC's life around. So he threw himself into producing tracks as well as rapping. Vowing that the the world would hear his story.
Some of CROWN's musical influences include Kanye West, Outkast, Pink Floyd, and Daft Punk for short. He is known for his dark psychedelic compositions, but still remains organic. From his high pitch yelp style singing to the lyrical precision he uses. He is truly the voice of the future. When asked why does he use so many drug references in his music, CROWN stated, " It's therapeutic, it allows me to say it's OK to get high, [But] remember family and music comes first. I use to worry that i would end up like my [Bio] dad and be a junkie. I had to stop living in fear of something I don't know will happen; and just rely on my family's support, and live life".
This summer CROWN will be presenting his debut mixtape entitled 'W.P.P. ( WEED, P@SSY, PILLS)'. The lead single VANITY, produced by CROWN DEAN MARTIN, Speaks to the rebellious and reckless nature in us all, "I GO ALL OUT TILL I BALL OUT AND YOU NEVER MET A N!@@A LIKE ME! ". It's that catchy hook, dark strings, and enticing hand clap that draws you in.
Now 27 years old, with more than a lifetime of experiences, CROWN is living proof that your past doesn’t have to dictate your future, and that life’s hardships can be the motivation required for success.
