Feeling a bit camera shy


Voted Best Hip Hop Act at the 2015
Black Canadian Awards, Dan-e-o broke on the music scene as an “Electric
Circus” Rap-Off Contest winner at the age of 13. His career was officially
launched in 1996 when his first single “Dear Hip Hop” was featured on Beat Factory/EMI's, Rap Essentials Volume One
compilation. The track is now considered a Canadian hip-hop classic.

Dan-e-o established his crew, Monolith, as a Canadian
favourite in the world of hip-hop in 1997 by co-founding One Rock Records and
independently releasing the EP, The Long Awaited... the following year. The project helped put Dan-e-o and the 10-member Monolith crew permanently on the hip-hop map.

In 2000, Dan-e-o released his eagerly anticipated debut
album, The Book of Daniel to rave
reviews and nationwide intrigue. In 2004, Dan-e-o's second album, See No Evil, Hear No Evil smashed onto
the scene cementing Dan-e-o's reputation as one of the world's most elite MCs.
One of the record's biggest hits, “Kama Sutra” featured Dan-e-o's cousin and
dancehall king, Red Rat. Its music video now has over 8 million views on YouTube!

Over the course of the next several years, Dan-e-o continued
to master his craft as an MC while solidifying his role as a multi-talented
entertainer and entrepreneur. Releasing numerous mixtapes, including Dilla Pickles - a full length tribute CD
to producer J Dilla, Dan-e-o also focused on an acting career. With dozens of
TV commercials under his belt, he landed a bit role in an episode of the
A&E series, “Breakout Kings” in 2011, played a key role in his first full
length movie, Anything Goes that same
year and starred in 2014’s Tapped Out.

Currently, Dan-e-o is also one half of the duo Perfeck
Strangers with fellow rap veteran, Promise. Their debut album, Series Premiere was released through
URBNET Records in March 2012 and, by May, reached #1 on Canada's !earshot

Dan-e-o's highly anticipated and long overdue solo projects,
Immortal and Inevitable were released on 9/10 and 11/12/13 respectively.
Entirely produced by follow Monolith cohort, Charisma a.k.a. Skizzz, both the
EP and the follow-up album highlight Dan-e-o’s growth as a songwriter and
potent lyricist.

With an incredible range of heartfelt love songs that expose
his vulnerable side to the party anthems and street bangers that further
showcase his impeccable vocabulary and rhyming skills, Inevitable truly captures Dan-e-o in his prime.

Nevertheless, in November 2014, Dan-e-o went back to his
roots by releasing the seminal album, Dear
Hip Hop
, exclusively on vinyl through France’s Sergent Records. Comprised
of tracks written and recorded during the “boom bap” heyday of the 90’s,
Dan e-o’s 4th official album is a true gem in today’s hip-hop world.
It was re-released by URBNET as a “20th Anniversary” deluxe edition
album entitled Dear Hip Hop: 20 Years Later in October of 2017. Stay tuned...
