Verne Miller (The Dan­ger­ous Gen­tle­man) a.k.a Dym­ind­bak. Verne is a smooth hip hop artist from Brook­lyn, N.Y. In my opin­ion Verne is a quiet assas­sin of a Hip hop artist. With a smooth vocal tone, sharp lyr­ics and deliv­ery. There is anti­dote for the venom that is Verne Miller. It’s been a very long time since i heard any­one smooth as Verne. He is refresh­ing and unique. He has a place at the hip hop table that’s for sure. Mr.Miller has spent many years under­ground like lava build­ing up pres­sure. Work­ing on his craft day and night. A loner that’s in the world, but not part of the world Verne takes hip hop more ser­i­ous than most of the artist now days. Not about for­tune and fame Verne just simply wants to put out music with longev­ity and mean­ing. (Bobby Love)

We catch up with Verne to find out more!

Tell us a bit about your jour­ney in music, how did you get into rap?

The jour­ney star­ted in Brook­lyn as a young kid just lov­ing to listen to hip hop. I was in Hawaii at the time with my fath­er, when I actu­ally put the pen to paper and wrote lyr­ics for the first time. Yo MTV Raps inspired that moment that changed my life.

You have been grind­ing in the under­ground scene for a long time. Tell us a bit about your exper­i­ence in the under­ground cir­cuit?

In my opin­ion the under­ground is not a scene. It’s the artist, him or her­self. The artist is the under­ground. I spent most of my career with­in writ­ing lyr­ics and cre­at­ing records. This was my under­ground.

What was it like grow­ing up in Brook­lyn and how did this influ­ence your music?

Brook­lyn is tough. But it’s no dif­fer­ent from any oth­er tough city across the coun­try. Of course. I think Brook­lyn moves a little dif­fer­ent. But every­where has it’s witty char­ac­ters. Being in Brook­lyn had no influ­ence on me music­ally. I was just in love with listen­ing to hip hop at that time. It’s safe to say the seeds where planted.

How would you define your style of music?

I’m an abstract emcee, full of lyr­ic­al raw­ness and stam­ina. I’m the dan­ger­ous gen­tle­man.

How import­ant is it for you to make music that has a mean­ing?

The import­ance can­’t be meas­ured with any device. Or words.

Who are your biggest inspir­a­tions in life?

For such a simple ques­tion this is hard to answer. I have to say, I myself is my inspir­a­tion. I been through a lot with­in my life jour­ney. The Cre­at­or, my faith, pas­sion and love are the reas­ons I’m still mak­ing it. I could have giv­en up on me but I didn’t. I inspire me.

 Tell us a bit about your latest single ‘Taste of Honey?’

A Taste Of Honey is a record about meet­ing a down to earth beau­ti­ful female and expos­ing her to the lights, cam­era, action star life­style. It’s def­in­itely a fun record to listen to.

Will you be drop­ping an EP this year? If so, what can we expect from it?

Yes. My E.P. “MEM­BERS ONLY” will be avail­able very soon online. I can­’t tell you what you should expect from the E.P. I hope that you would say  I am a refresh­ing unique smooth emcee. I would be happy with that alone.

You own your own record label ‘Bass Hound Music’, tell us a bit about this?

Wow. I see you did a little research. Yes, Bass Hound Music is a sens­it­ive top­ic for me to talk about. The label was born after my moth­er passed. She inspired me to cre­ate the com­pany. Bass was her last name and she loved hound dogs, so I com­bined her last name Bass to Hound and there you have it. Bass Hound Music. There is true mean­ing behind  the name.

What is the biggest les­son you have learnt from the music industry that you would pass on?

Well it’s always some­thing in the industry. But this advice is more for the up and com­ing artist in the trenches like me. My advice is nev­er let not hav­ing money stop you from get­ting to the next stage of your career, build­ing rela­tion­ships is money in the bank as well. And second, if you can­’t cut the world off and truly focus in on your craft the music­al spir­it won’t vis­it you. It’s much more deep­er than one would think.

Where can we fol­low you?
