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?
