Dante Higgins EPK Press Kit

Everything you need to know about Dante Higgins is in his music. Before he even released his first album, Dante produced 4 mix tapes that flooded the city streets of Houston, Texas and beyond. His initial project was titled H.I.G., followed by the cartoon-themed Rhymes 4 Days, then an enlightening look at life lessons called School Boy Music and finally, a continuation of his second project named Rhymes for Weeks, which are all still available for FREE download today. Although he’s calm when you meet him, Dante has the heart of a lion and the rhymes of a monster. He jokes around and loves to laugh, but he’s a breath of fresh air to the rap game.

Life didn’t hand H.I.G. lemons, it handed him a microphone, and he’s doing exactly what he’s supposed to do with it. Don’t take our word for it though, go listen. Otherwise, go ahead and keep reading.

Higgins prides himself on being one of the few college-educated rappers in the game, but he’s certainly no stranger to the streets. His references to B.O.S.S. Click refer to his well known group of friends, “Boys Off Scott Street”. Growing up in the city streets of Houston, Texas has had a profound impact on Dante’s music – southern influences and references are sprinkled generously throughout his rhymes. Although Dante Higgins has created his own style that is far beyond the typical sound expected from Texas Artists , he always pays homage to the known Houston rap Legends before him.

Not only is H.I.G.’s voice distinctive, but his style of rhyming is bold and uncommon. He has a special talent for rap in general, but his storytelling will have you pressing rewind before you hear the next line. Dante Higgins is a humble artist, but not afraid to challenge any non-believers, and with his loyal fan base of “HigHeadz” behind him, his future looks as bright as a traditional H-town grill.

"Higgins never found himself as a complicated rapper. A straight-forward, A-to-Z storyteller with a bit of Southlawn charm, he always came off as the man who’s seen plenty and worked around every pitfall." - Brandon Caldwell via [ Dayandadream.com ]

"And the man who branded himself “Good Forever,” can be silent no longer." - Bradford J. Howard via [ Dayandadream.com]

DJ Young Samm Goes For Heavy Artillery On “Blessed” | @djyoungsamm @doughbeezy @iamdelorean @dantehiggins

Like everything, this sound, and lifestyle, had a beginning, a meager one in fact with only a small subset of the city’s rap community imbibing in it in the early 1990s. But by 1996, the sound, the lifestyle, and the story had taken over Houston to such an extent that it might as well have been an island unto itself in the big picture of hip-hop. Around that era, DJ Screw was the king, and artists from the Screwed Up Click like ESG, Fat Pat, and Lil Keke, alongside Port Arthur transplants UGK, ruled the streets. In fact, outside of the Geto Boys, and a couple other people on Rap-A-Lot Records, you would be hard pressed to find a rap fan who listened to much of anything else. Today, Dante Higgins has taken us back into that mind frame.
