Two Dee is a young up-and-coming artist, he describes his style of music as stoner music. He recently just started his own music label called Private School. He is one artist that you should look out for in the game in the next coming years.

Who is Two Dee and how did the name come about?

A homie (friend) of mine, Theo back in the day came me the name. What you see is what you get, so it’s two dimensional.

What sets you apart from other artists?

I don’t follow trends, I don’t jack other peoples flow. I stick to my own vibe. I always talk about marijuana in my music. I’m able to tell stories through my music. My music will make you lift off. My music lasts forever.

Why marijuana though?

I’d like to say I make stoner music and from now going forth I’d like to dedicate myself to that cause that’s a market on its own. I wanna appreciate my people by making chilled music for them, like a 4:20 sound.

Who influences your style of music?

There isn’t really an artist who influences my music. Some of the producers I work with influence my style, because they come with different sounds. I’ve come across different beat makers, they’ve helped me evolve and change my sound. Now, I’m working with Honeymoon (producer) and my sound is different.

How long have you been doing this and how did you get started?

I started writing lyrics in high school. I started really getting into rap nine years ago but it wasn’t a serious thing. Actually started in a fun a way, because I was in a dance crew (laughs). My dance partner’s brother used to make beats so we can dance to them like pop lock and krump. We decided to switch our dance crew into a rap crew and it had a funny name called Rainbow Monkeys. Four guys in the rap crew, two left and the other guy left. I was the only one left, the crew died out and I left the crew and decided to do my own thing.

Do you think your music is mostly enjoyed for its beats or for the lyrical flow and content?

I choose the right beats for my flow. The beats I choose compliment my flow, my voice and style. At first, they listen to the beat and 20 seconds into the jam, they actually pay more attention to this guy (Two Dee), it’s a bit of both. 50/50

Which ingredient do you think is essential in making your sound and style the way it is?

My surroundings, what I go through and life changes affect the style of music.

What is your music making process and what do you find yourself making songs most about?

I need to get into my zone, I need to get into a good mood. I also need to roll up a bit (smoke marijuana) for extra inspiration. I usually write about anything that comes up unless I’m freesytling on a jam.

Who is your favorite artist locally and internationally?

All the L.A (Los Angeles) artists, the likes of Marvin Gaye, Tupac, Snoop Dog, Anderson Paak and Bob Marley. Locally, Brenda Fassie and Shekinah is doing her thing, man.

What do you do with your extra time?

I chill out with the fam’ (family/friends) and I love cooking so I cook up a great meal. Favorite meal to cook is Lamp chops and corn. I watch a lot of football, I’m a big fan of football.

What is your favorite football team?

I’m a big Kaizer Chiefs fan, I grew up in a Kaizer Chiefs family. Internationally, Arsenal and Barcelona.

What can we expect from you in a few years?

The future is bright, man. Hopefully, my label should be big and established with more acts. I just started my label called Private School. In a few years, I’ll probably be the biggest act in the country and probably collaborating with international acts.
