The hip-hop star behind hit singles such as “Clap Clap” knows exactly what it takes to cut it in a world where authenticity and respect are everything. Growing up in New Orleans the man who was born Douglas Miller, was living the street life, rappers such as Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg were busy singing about back in the day.
“I always saw rapping as my way out of a lifestyle that was always going to end one of two ways – me dead or me in prison,” explained Miller. “I spent half my life in New Orleans but busted loose in 2001 to make a name for myself as a rapper. I think when fans hear me rhyme and see me live they know exactly where I’m coming from and can relate.”
Miller added, “When I first left New Orleans, I moved to Beverly Hills. It was a bit of a culture shock but I was fortunate enough to hook up with a legend such as Relative Master P. He took me under his wing and taught me all the angles I needed to survive and succeed in this game. He’s a talented musician and a shrewd businessman. Let me tell you, that’s a lethal combination. He’s on top of his game and I’ve always strived to emulate that.”
To date, Miller’s done a fine job of following in Relative Master P’s footsteps. After earning his hip-hop chops, the former member of the Rich Boyz has gone solo and is flying high with an impressive triple-punch whammy of singles which include, ‘Clap Clap,’ ‘VIP,’ and new track ‘Easy Flow.’
