Dez, a Virginia native, released his mixtape last fall, which featured Ma$E. Check out Real Talk below.
Some details about Dez: A few years ago, Dezmond Armstead was just a high school freshman in Virginia playing on the varsity basketball team; a young man who had hoped his basketball talents would get the attention of the high school girls. "I thought, I'm definitely going to get noticed," Dez reminisced. "But it didn't work out that way."
He soon realized that his voice was his greatest strength and eventually garnered the attention he wanted, along with a slew of requests of popular R&B songs from the '80s and early '90s. Inspired by Usher and Bobby Brown, Dez was ready to put his talent to the test and moved to Los Angeles after high school to see what he was made of. He later met the production duo The Movement and they began to talk about their love for classic R&B. After a few studio sessions and completed tracks, the musical chemistry was undeniable.
You'll be hearing more from Dez in the coming months.
