Music is the thread that connects us all. Lousiana’s own Dante’ Harris knows how to create significant connections. His bond with prolific producer What Up five is shaping into one of his best yet. Their relationship started years back, but as of late, they have been focused on creating moments musically. Their latest tape RED.eth is a cryptocurrency-inspired project shaking up things for creatives in their lane. Artists like Money Man, Rich The Kid, and many more have made waves in the crypto space. Harris is looking to create a niche for himself with the help of his talented producer homie/collaborator What Up 5.

Check out our conversation with Dante’ Harris below!

4Sho: What city are you from/ Where are you based now?

Harris: I’m from L-Town. LaPlace, Louisiana. I’m based in the city of LA.

4Sho: What is your artist/producer name? What is your real name? How did you get your artist/producer name?

Harris: Dante’ Harris. Dante’ is the real name. I took my deceased father’s last name instead of my mother’s. Long Live Cardell Harris. At what point in your life did you decide to pursue a career in music?

Harris: I started freestyling at like 11 years old, but I never really took it seriously and started WRITING until I was 14. The first studio session was at 15, and the rest was history. I feel like I’m just starting now in a sense because I’m bringing a brand with me

4Sho: Has your upbringing played a role in shaping who you are and defining your sound today? If so, how?

Harris: Of course. You’ll get more of my upbringing now from my music moving forward. I think my sound is so versatile I can tell my story however I need to. And that came from training and discipline. I am perfecting the craft. My situation as far as homelessness, people trying to block my career, family situations, etc., everything in my life influences my sound.

4Sho: How would you describe your sound to readers who may not be familiar with you?

Harris: I would tell them to hear it for themselves. But if I must, it’s like the universe is rap battling.

4Sho: What ultimately inspired you to dedicate yourself to a music career?

Harris: Me making music in the first place inspired me; certain people encouraged me to be better. I just felt it was for me after a while. I don’t have the two-year rap story or the blew-up in high school story. I’ve kind of just been perfecting the craft from the jump.

4Sho: What’s one reason you are passionate about music, and what inspires you?

Harris: It was a time when this shit was all I had to keep going, so it’s a dynamic relationship in general when it comes to music 

4Sho: Do you have any hobbies outside of music? What do you do to stay creative?

Harris: Investing honestly. And lately, I’ve been fucking with the water heavy, lmao. I just went jet skiing, and I think that’s my thing 

4Sho: What were you doing before music?

Harris: Well, I started when I was 11, so I was a kid. But before this leg of music, I was more into entrepreneurial efforts.

4Sho: Who are some of your main musical influences?

Harris: $pitta and Tunechi. I’ve studied the greats to learn skills, but honestly, those two have the most significant impact on me.

4Sho: What are some of your music career goals for the future?

Harris: Nationwide and international tours. I want to turn the world up. Honestly, my catalog is broad enough to have some shit for wherever I go.

4Sho: Tell us the name of the project you are currently promoting? What inspired this project?

Harris: RED.eth is the project we fucking with right now. That transparency and timeless music mixed with unmatched honesty give it a unique experience as a project.

And the inspiration is simply taking the next step with my music. Branding and tying in my everyday life, so I kept it Crypto.

4Sho: Date this project dropped or is it set to drop?

Harris: 4/20/22 OUT NOW! Roll something up, pour something up (if that’s what you do), and press play.

4Sho: What is this project about in your own words?

Harris: It’s honestly my music coming of age. It’s more mature and precise than any other project I have. It’s about how far I came and where I’m currently with it.

4Sho: What’s one of the proudest moments of your music career so far?

Harris: Honestly, tied between working with Boosie and Performing at the Novo. The Boosie thing just showed how manifestation works. Like this, the nigga, we would all jam back in the hood. The show was crazy, too, the biggest crowd I’ve had, and it feels right.

4Sho: What’s next for you? Are you working on any upcoming projects we should be on the lookout for? Include some dates if you have them.

Harris: Next is BLUE.eth. We will keep it going by fusing music with the crypto space. You are all probably getting that late June or early July.

4Sho: What message do you hope fans take away from your music?

Harris: Man, I just want people to take affirmative actions with their dreams, goals, and aspirations. If you can think of it or see it, it can be yours. Just quit bullshitting and get that shit.

4Sho: Where can we follow you on social media?

Harris: @danteharrismusic IG @dantefoolish Twitter

Artist To Watch

Afrobeats record producer and artist Lancky Cresco releases “All This”

Published

By

Multifaceted Nigerian-American artist and record producer Lancky Cresco today shares a brand new single titled, “All This.”

The talented artist renowned for his cross-genre sound palette of Hip Hop, R&B & Afrobeats strikes again with this cathartic record that has him wear his heart on his sleeve. “All This,” is a creative blend of sounds and melodies that incorporates various elements into it – making for a dynamic work of art that sets the tone for who Cresco is.

Combining strummed guitars, haunting background cacophony, rhythmic shakers, among a raft of sounds, this Lancky cut, like the majority of his works, is sticky with emotion, grosses a fullness about it, and has an almost heartbroken texture. Subject matter wise, Lancky is in a lamentation state of an ex-lover as he combs through different feelings to share this powerful record. The track is a well-rounded effort of pain. 

“Looking at the world around us we have all this beauty, we need to take time to appreciate it,” Lanky Cresco says.

Lancky, who has made a name for himself for managing to bridge traditional influences of music with a modern approach, follows this song after his earlier releases “DONGOYARO” & “Super Glue.”

“Helping people is what is making me dedicate my life to music,” he says. “I believe music can change the world, and I want to contribute my music to uplift people, changing the world one step at a time.”

His bombastic vibes are clear for everyone to vibe to on “All This.” He has previously stated his music “is medicine for good mind and body” and this recipe is again reinstated on his latest single. 

He started making music from an early age while he was in elementary school in Nigeria before joining the choir to further his prowess on the drums. With a profound background in music, he has now developed his craft into a full-throttle music production craftsman and mix engineer that conjures savory sounds that exude feel-good vibrations. He is also a singer by design and can stir up different inflections and melodies to deliver meaningful messages through song.
