Bo Dean

Bo Dean is a 24 year old musician from St Louis Missouri. He fell in love with music at a young age; he would dance and sing to Michael Jackson whenever he came on. As he got older he got introduced to Hip Hop. His first rap album ever was Will Smith’s “Big Willie Style”. From then on, he knew that creating music was what he wanted to do for the rest of the life. As a teenager, while other peers were out partying or outside playing, Bo would sit in his room for hours and just write and come up with songs. In high school he dropped several mix tapes with his group H.B.N (Hustler’s By Nature) that gained them a nice following. As years passed, many relatives and peers passed away. Bo came to the realization that life isn’t promised. From then on he vowed to give his all in pursuing music. Since 2010 he has dropped a slew of mix tapes that are considered “life changing” to some “classics” to others and “whack” to no one. As the fall approaches, he is scheduled to release his next project entitled #MashUp. “It’s going to be a very creative and original piece of work”. Bo says. The best is yet to come.
