Music Video: GROS DINERO – NIGHT AND DAY

Born in Brooklyn, yet molded and bred in Southside Jamaica Queens; from an early age Gros Dinero knew the stage was his rightful place. Now at the age of 36, defining performing as the only trip he wants to be on, yet he feels there aren’t enough platforms for artists to showcase their talents. “It also depends on the artist’s drive; a car with a full tank of gas will take you as far as you want to go as long as you press the pedal. But you still have to press the pedal; the car is not going to move on its own”. In other words, his ambitions are self-motivated yet he has a coloration of heavy hitting collaborations with Hip Hop legend Mr. Cheeks, Royal Flush, Tony Sunshine, Nanci Fletcher, and House Legend Ira Levi.

When asked to reflect on music as a universal element, Dinero reverberated that music evolves just like the fans that listen to it, New York and Hip Hop is currently a boiling pot of different flows and
energies mixing together; we will see who comes out climaxing because no one will forever remain on top, and back in his Junior High School daze artists he felt formulated the foundation of Hip Hop were Slick Rick, Biggie, Scarface, and 2Pac to name a few. Gros Dinero; in other words, delegates’ capital wealth and currency exchange in this here rap game, the goal is to give the people what they want from show to show while accumulating the dough. And thus far twenty seventeen has taken this artist on a quiet storm setting a diverse stage.
