What happens when you mix a southern swag with an east coast influence, the mind of a hustler with a nose for success, and a love of money with a passion for music? You get a cat as unique as the sound he creates - you get the one and only, Chase Dinero. A child of the '80s, Chase was born in D.C., bred in South Carolina. It didn't take Chase long to find his passion for music, producing his own tracks and dj'ing at local clubs throughout high school. He would quickly learn to become a triple threat, mastering the arts of producing, song writing, and performing. Upon graduating, Chase put music on the backburner to serve his country in the U.S. military. However, it only took a year before The Carolina Kid found himself going back to the one who stole his heart - music. After leaving the military, Chase did whatever necessary to put money in his pockets. He hustled, both legally and illegally, with the latter leading to some minor jail time. Unlike others who have folded in similar situations, Chase took this as an opportunity to turn a negative into a positive. He decided to put the illegal activites behind him and focus more on his music. Starting back from scratch, it didn't take Chase long to create a buzz for himself, opening shows for the likes of T.I., Da Band, and Nelly. Talking to Chase for even just a few minutes, you can easily pick up on the slick, deliberate demeanor that living in South Carolina and Louisiana has given him. But keep talking, and his big city dreams and sharp tongue are soon revealed - traits he undoubtedly owes to living in Philly for so long. Chase lists some of his musical influences as Outkast, Bob Marley, The Fugees, Wu-Tang Clan, The Notorious B.I.G., Tupac, Jay-Z, The Hot Boys, and Ludacris. His number one goal is to take southern music to a level that no other rapper can. It's time for South Carolina to be heard, and Chase Dinero is ready to be the one who makes EVERYBODY listen!
