D BOY SOUND
A Story Steeped in Sound
3269 Chise [born Ashaun Mason] is an emcee/indie artist, born & raised from the eastside of Detroit MI [8 Mile & Gratiot to be exact]. He got his first start in music at the age of 6 years-old, performing as a member of his church choir along with other family and relatives.
Over the years, he honed his talent by performing during family gatherings, in school-based talent shows, open mics, and any opportunity that would afford him a chance to perform his music, and develop his talent as an emcee.
Another key influence in his life would come by way of his older brother who helped teach him how to write in song format, and structure his verses and choruses.
Consequently, all the years of development and hard work would culminate in his first mixtape entitled Something Special (circa 2015), in which he only gave out via physical copies across the Detroit area.
“Pray for Me,” "Feel Good Music,” "Forever,” "The Woman You Are," and "Save Sinna" all were released as singles and videos shot by director, B. Hughes TV.
As a follow-up to his first project, Chise released a collaboration project called Chopped Suei, Vol.1, with Detroit based producer Merch Music; which is currently available on all digital media streaming platforms everywhere. Some of the standouts from this project were "Black Love,” "Haters,” "Greatness,” "Starting 5,” and "Tell You.”
3269 Chise has been a frequent winner and performer across several local platforms and showcases.
HE recently released the singles “Smiling Faces,” “Social Media,” “Rainy Dayz” and collaboration efforts with Dot Gang entitled “Soul Food” and a collaboration project/single/video entitled “Coney Island” with another local artist P Dot in which they have released entire Coney Island series of projects including mixtapes and EPs, aptly entitled "Coney Island," "Coney Island 2," and "III: Coney Island 3".
With the success of the former, in between some of these projects and before others, Chise partnered with ASIR Consulting/Varsity Music Group in the Summer of 2020, and released his autobiographical project "Club Shirley's (Based On A True Story)" in the fall of 2020 with the buzz singles "Heart, So Heavy" & "Crown Royal Diaries".
Recently, after a chance performance in which he & P Dot, opened up for Boldy James on his Bo Jackson/Bentayga Tour in the Fall of 2021, Chise connected with the new Dot Gang member Snatra 747. Now Chise, along with $ The Symbol (Cig Dolla), P Dot, and Snatra 747, have formed as Dot Gang, and they recently dropped "F*ck A Demo Tape" and released the buzz single "Original Sin."
As an upcoming artist from Detroit, MI, he has his sights set on becoming an artist the people can love to grow with over time. No microwave RAP!! His music is food for the soul.
His dream is to truly bring Something Special to the culture of Hip-Hop/Rap and beyond, for generations to come!
