The Hype Magazine Interviews: Baby D
BABY D COMES BACK TO THE GAME FULL THROTTLE
Recording Artist Triple Threat with Album, Video Show and Movie Role
Atlanta rapper Baby D aka Dizzle (www.babydamg.com) is making his music industry come back stronger than ever by releasing a new mixtape, hosting a new television video show and for the icing on his comeback cake, has also recently been cast in a movie role. Together with his long time business minded partner, T-Money, the Founders and CEOs of Alliance Music Group (AMG) record label will release his latest CD, Legendary, his much-anticipated mixtape which includes appearances by The Dream, Eight Ball, Smoke from Field Mob, and Young Dro.
From the rooftop of his digs in Atlanta, Baby D aka Dizzle spoke with The Hype Magazine on his long history in the music business, how he sees the resurgence of Southern Hip-Hop and his part in that renaissance, as well as his expanded presence on television.
Launching officially this spring, the Mixtape Baby D aka Dizzle Back in The Mix will include a few of his current singles such as ‘Baby D aka Dizzle ft. Spoony G x Young Do 2 Much Flavor and Baby D Dab ON DEM Hoes.
Following on his acting appearance in ‘The Adventures of Molly World” ft. Waka Flocka Flame, he is filming a new project which will feature The Dream, Bando Jones, Tocarra Hamilton, Shawty Boy, and Gucci Mane.
Perhaps the biggest moment of his tour de force is starring as ‘Dre’ in a new mini-series set to release soon, executive produced by Blaq Gold and co-starring Vivica A. Fox. Other actors in the project are Thomas Mikal Ford, Roy Jones Jr. and Erica Dixon. Dizzle is also the new face of The Hype Magazine’s Video Show, Junket Videos hosting the featured segment Hype in the Streets.
Born Donald B. Jenkins, (aka Baby Dizzle) in Decatur, Georgia, the pride of “Hotlanta’s” prodigal son, Baby D, is largely responsible for the immensely popular genre of ‘Crunk’ as well as for bridging the gap from the booty shaking music for which the city was previously known for trap rapping.
Barely a teen when he first hit mainstream popularity, his undeniable rhyming skills allowed him to flex his lyrical muscles with many of the architects of the “Peach State’s” capitol sound. He has made a name for himself as having played the biggest role in transforming Atlanta, Georgia, into a Mecca for entertainment.Tweet
