Daja "Daja Marie" Greer is a rapper, singer, songwriter hailing from Marion, Indiana. Her stage name is her first and middle name, after the late, great Tina Marie. Unique is a word that clearly describes her sound, personality and style. While her preference is rapping, her singing and songwriting ability sets her apart from the norm within the music industry today.
Something that I hear very often is, "When you Rap, you sound like Snoop Dogg.," or, "When you sing you sound unique," she says.
Overcoming overwhelming odds as a young person, a mother on drugs, and the suicide of her father; Daja Marie has leaned on her music ability to provide an outlet for her rage and frustration. Her intestinal fortitude has enabled her to focus her energy on the positive as opposed to being crushed by the weight of these life changing scenarios. Her music is the catharsis by which she has healed and shares with the world her life story.
She has been songwriting and rapping since the age of 19, but has been singing since she could talk. Her first major singing performance of course as with most singers, was in church. After performing a solo at her church, she received a standing ovation and voila…a star was born!
Daja Marie will be releasing her single "Bank Rolls Like Monopoly," in the spring of 2014 from her mixtape by the same title. This club banger of unique structure is strictly verses with no hook, "tell me where they do that at?” she says. Ladies can relate and the fellas can't discriminate on this young woman's lyrical ability.
This girl not only has the looks but she has the talent, brains and ambition. Three words describe this femcee would be random, humble and outspoken. Daja Marie is our modern day "Left Eye" when it comes to personality, yeah that's right, "CRAZY."
Not only is Daja Marie a stellar musical light, as the fashion editor of The Hype Magazine, she regularly appears on the red carpets of fashion events including Derby City Fashion Week and other high profile fashion happenings across the United States. Her unique flair and style as a creative personality, makes her one of the most in demand fashionistas and fashion editors in the business.
Look out for more from this rising star, as she graces the industry with her creative songwriting, nightingale voice and straight forward no nonsense lyrics on the rap side.
