Dez Mac, is a young rapper, raised in Youngstown, Ohio. He is a also cofounder of Moviiies app. As an artist, Dez writes about the pain and sturggles he's experienced and tells stories about his philosophy and inspiration in his life. Dez's first EP Dharma is named after "The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success" by Deepak Chopra. After reading the book, Dez realized the last law is "the law of Dharma" which is your life's purpose. For Dez, the purpose is to inspire, motivate and influence others through music.
While in high school, Dez used to write in his planner and realized he really loved to write poetry and music. He searched for beats on YouTube and would write to them but when around his friends he would rap J Coles lyrics. After high school, he decided to stop focusing on basketball and attend school to learn the skills to work in the electrical trade. For a brief time, he worked in plumbing, but he was driven by his desire to create. Dez had an opportunity to leave Youngstown to help launch Moviiies app with his brother Amon'dre Muhammad in San Francisco. Once he arrived in San Francisco, he connected to a community of young artists and rappers and was inspired to create his own songs. Making music is what makes him happy, and makes him feel free.
