I am truly grateful for the support, love, and motivation I receive day to day from friends, family and fans. I love creating music. I hope to be an inspiration to aspiring artists, producers and minds alike. Happy Thanksgiving!!
To show my appreciation I have for you 3 free beats, holiday steez. Enjoy and give credit where due!
The first track and first music video from J Billion's sophomore album, "Super Steezy" was produced by Dex Beats and Directed by @MrJza of Bloopset. Make sure to download the album, from the sidebar.
J Billion and I took a lot of time in the studio having fun with the creative process when creating this album. It took us numerous attempts to get this sound out of J Billion. This steezy sound that summed up his lifestyle. In a nut shell, Super Steezy to me is this laid back vibe, BUT start pushing the wrong buttons and talking lip will get you pimp slapped. Steez Bitch! We already finished Vol. 2 of Super Steezy, which will come out next year. So, stay tuned and support this album. Not only did I executive produce the album, but co-wrote hooks and produced 90% of the beats. "Super Steezy" is like my son, like Nikki would say. Enjoy!
Episode 2 explains how J Billion got started working at HUF SF a store that held the most respected brands and brought shoes, street wear and skatboarding together. HUF SET! Get Familiar!
Nio Tha Gift came in the studio last night inspired and motivated to make music for his upcoming project, "The Messenger." In between picking beats Nio couldn't help but express his passion as an emcee and his art to freestyle off the dome. The first freestyle came to him over a Jean-Luc Ponty record I flipped. The title of the Jean's record was called "A Taste of Passion."
You can expect a lot soulful and street conscious records from "The Messenger." Last night, Nio couldn't help but explain to me how focused he is right now. Which tells me "The Messenger" is going to be a crucial wake up call.
I swear I aint never been dissapointed since Locksmith hooked up with Ski Beatz. They were made to create chaos and have emcee's shit they pants. Lock is a true lyricist. Pair that up with a beat smith and you got a problem.
New project coming from Richmond, Cali's lethal weapon; Nio Tha Gift. It is entitled "The Messenger" and will feature production from myself and a few others. The cover you see in the tube was also a Dex Beats creation. This project is gonna be ill. Look out for it!
Turf Talk is by far one of my favorite rappers from the Bay. I had the chance to work with him, so look out for a crazy record. But, what I remember him telling me that day was he never had a music video besides cameos he's made on records he's featured on. So, this is a solo video debut from SikWidit's prince, Turf Talk!!!

M.C./Pianist/Producer Kev Choice and RebelSoul star Martin Luther team up for this heartfelt video and song pertaining to dealing with everyday stress and struggles we deal with in life. Kev Choice plays a homeless person in the video, with the message being that no matter how bad things may be, it could always be worse. The video was shoot on location in downtown San Francisco by director Samm Styles and Brian Storm.
Even with his latest album "A HUSTLERS HOPE" with San Quinn, you couldn't stop the mad rapper from dropping gems. Take a look into the diabolic mind of Tuf Luv courtesy of director Anthony Jacobs. Beat produced by none other, Steven King.
