The Little Rapper That Could

It's Demi Day,
The Little Rapper That Could
Raised in the suburbs of Upper Marlboro, MD, Demi Day has taken her very common experiences and tranformed them into daily expression. Approaching hip-hop as "the new 9-5," Day works hard to make a difference through lyrical authenticity and connectivity. While most rap artists emphasize the night life and street grind (which is glorified and centralized in the genre), Demi finds herself on the outside, in broad daylight, casting shadows with new sounds. 

Beginning her career as a spoken word artist in 2010, Demi has slowly amassed a following of loyal fans, she now considers the #DayCrew. Over the last eight years, they have witnessed her grow from a creative college kid, to a profoundly influential artist. During the transition between college and graduate school, Demi made a conscious decision to pursue hip-hop recording as her art form of choice. With her first 4-track demo in hand, Day landed a management deal with Moore Elite Management in 2014 and, 6 months later, a record deal with King Poole Music Group. 
However, Day's rising success as a rapper was quickly overhsadowed by a choice to focus on her Master's of Divinity degree. After obtaining the degree and being ordained in 2017, Demi returned to her music; no label, no manager, no team. Starting again from scratch, Day digitally released her debut single, "Back to the Root," on all streaming platforms. The record, which continues to receive praise, is a reminder to herself and her fans that starting anew can be beautiful.  In addition to the song release, Day also began booking her own gigs which have included the 2017 Taste of DC Festival and the 2018 Trinity International Hip-Hop Festival. Demi is poised and determined to bring her fresh style and positivity to those who need it most.
