Dexta Daps is a Jamaican dancehall artist based in New York. Born Louis Anthony Grandison Jr, Dexta Daps grew up in the mean streets of Seaview Garden in Jamaica which were the stomping grounds for such reggae legends as Shabba Ranks and Garnet Silk.
Growing up in the poverty stricken streets he learn to take out his frustration the best way he knew how, by song. ” I would hear the melodic voices of the kids crying for help, and the sadness of the people. Their voices, and hunger for retribution was very inspiring for me, and made me want to sing songs of happiness and joy.”
Dexta Daps has been compared to Sean Paul and Maxi Priest with his versatility and unique voice. His style is different and refreshing and with his debut first single, “Move Ur Body” & “Stupid”, he has proven that. Shaking the dancehall’s up from Rochester to New York all the way to down to Florida. DEXTA DAPS has made a movement of young and old packing the party to hear his songs play.
He also demonstrates that he has the Dance-Hall abilities with his underground hit “CRAZY”. Signed to Daseca Productions we are bound to hear some quality music coming from Dexta Daps.
