Why He's About to Pop:
Atlanta's Roscoe Dash started rapping at the age of 12, joined a
four-piece rap group called the Blackout Boys in high school and
released his first solo mixtape, 'My Turn,' in 2007. In 2009, he played
a song that he'd written, 'All the Way Turnt Up,' for Travis Porter,
and the track ended up on T.P.'s next release -- but Dash was only
credited as a "featuring" artist. Controversy aside, Dash's mixture of
hip-hop and pop soon landed him a record deal, so he rerecorded the
tune with Soulja Boy and put it out as his own catchy single. "The rest
is history!" the rapper tells PopEater.
Since then, Dash has released another single, 'Show Out,' and landed the title track in the movie soundtrack for 'Step Up 3D'
with the song 'My Own Step,' featuring T-Pain. His debut LP, 'Ready Set
Go,' will be released on July 20. "My album is a breath of fresh air
for people -- not only in Atlanta, but for the entire world," Dash
says. "My album will have you motivated to work out one second and
ready to make love the next minute [laughs]. Pure energy all around."
