Dutch’s Jazzy Hip Hop rap was inspired by Tupac and Eminem and the performance styles of Lil Wayne, Biggie, Jada Kiss, Game, Beanie Siegel, and Styles.
While attending South High School Urban Academy in Columbus, Ohio, he began to combine his creative writing skills with his love of music. Dutch began performing at high school pep rallies, talent shows, and local recreation centers. From there he began to work the Columbus club circuit including: Big Easy, Sundance, DNR, and the Franklin Park Festivals.
Beyond writing and performing, Dutch ultimately plans to start his own independent rap label.
