Who Is Deejay Rupp?

Last week I caught wind of this incredible joint “Happy Now” by a new name for me Deejay Rupp (@deejayrupp), the visuals for the song blew me away. The young DJ/Producer is capturing mad attention across the board sharing the same stages as JLO, Demi Lovato Rae Sremmurd and the list goes on. So I followed up with a quick interview to learn more about the young DJ/Producer.

From the outside looking in, who is Deejay Rupp?

A passionate kid who really is just trying to create happiness, as I try and find my own. Trying to create moments between people through music.

What brought you to the entertainment industry, music specifically?

I started rapping in the 4th grade. Ever since the moments of me battle rapping, I knew I wanted to pursue music.

What do you want people to get from your music?

I want people to rage, I want people to make love, I want tears of joy to come out. I want people to relate and hear me through my music.

Tell us about your current project.

Working on a bunch of singles. I have summer anthems dropping throughout this year. Also incredible visuals.

For new listeners, what song of yours would you pick as an introduction to you as an artist?

My last single “Happy Now” because I’m only as good as my previous project. Also, shows the direction I’m headed towards musically.

Tell us a bit about your work and passions OUTSIDE of music…

Outside of music, I work with a lot of start-up companies. I pride myself on being an entrepreneur.

Last but not least, HYPE wants to know…What’s your CRAZIEST “Where they do that at?!” aka WTF?! moment…

My WTF moment I was doing a live set in Texas and these two girls managed their way on the stage. I let them drink from my bottle. They then got a little too lit and started removing articles of clothing. I was all here for it, but Security wasn’t.
