About V Ferg

V Ferg is a multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, producer, performer, and humanitarian whose music unlocks the power to make audiences sing, dance, and even think. By night, you can typically find him hosting lively underground New York City jams as part of his Creative Public Offering collective, performing to packed crowds at hot spots like SOBs, and recording endless amounts of music. During the day, he works as an “Illuminator,” educating sixth and seventh graders on matters of Social Justice. This ethos is reflected in his later album Higher Level Music. He’s jammed alongside the likes of Erykah Badu and shared stages with Girl Talk, MC Hammer, and many more. Playing bass, guitar, keys, and more, he bobs and weaves between rock, hip-hop, and R&B, landing a knockout each time he takes the stage.

Just in case you are late to the party. I cut and pasted some bio info for you:

His style is so diverse that he creates his own lane in hip-hop. Born & raised in the heart of New Orleans, Dee-1 shared the same struggles as the legendary artists that put the 504 on the map, but he represents the city with a different viewpoint. He is the voice for anyone on a mission to win in the game of life by maximizing their potential and grinding with a purpose.

After graduating from Louisiana State University with a bachelor’s degree, Dee-1 began teaching middle school in Baton Rouge by day to help fund his music projects. The strong bond he formed with his students inspired him to be a powerful leader, but it also made it hard for him to leave. As his buzz as an artist continued to grow, he finally decided that his passion for hip hop was too much to ignore and that being “Dee-1″ gave him a much larger platform to be heard than being “Mr. Augustine.” Sleepless nights being a full time teacher and part time rapper were now replaced by sleepless nights being a “full time dream chaser,” as chronicled in his courageous song “The Announcement.”
