About Miss Dade County
It was March 5, 1988 when a young prodigy was born, Deanna “D” Peña. Born to a musical genius and a street smart business women, Deanna best known as D, was born and raised in Miami Dade County and learned the hard knocks of life from her family and the streets of the Magic City. She was raised in an urban neighborhood and attended inner city schools. Though times were rough, her father showed her how to forget about the hard times through music, but just like any other child, who wants to do what their parents want them to do when their young. So she became an aspiring actress in Elementary school then crossed over to the delights of the world of dance towards the end of Junior High. Even though she tried the various areas of the arts, it was not her calling, her father was right after all…music was her calling.
Having many older brothers and sisters, She observed one of her older brothers in particular, her older brother O.G. Cujo, a well known local gangster rapper. Her brother taught tricks here and there, and from her own observations she developed her talent. During Middle school D advanced in the art of rhyme and free style. It was then she realized that she had answered her calling. The talent came to her so naturally. She found her nature in rhyming about everything from her lifestyle, such as her up bringing in a poor neighborhood , seeing the evils of the world face to face and losing plenty of loved ones along the way. Then she found more enjoyment in writing lyrics that people can dance and have fun listening to. There was plenty to vent about, but Deanna knew in her heart that her venting turned into amazing rhymes.
After High School, Deanna wanted to get into the wonderful world of music, and the category of her choice? Of course, Hip Hop. In her venture to join what is now a nation of Hip Hop, Deanna has worked hard to get to know the right people that would help her get initiated into this ever growing nation. She started out modeling, with Ethnicity Models, a well known and respected modeling agency, having the chance to work with artist such as, The Clipse, T.I., Trick Daddy, and others. Throughout her modeling career she was able to view the talents of other music artists and realized that she also attained that talent. With determination and prayer, her modeling career landed her in the eyes of several entertainment producers. She is now an upcoming artist with Tha Otherz, a production company who is now opening new doors for her in the nation of hip hop, with the well known all around entertainment mogul, C.O. C.O a.k.a Mr. Piscapo is guiding Deanna to the new heights in the music industry while showing her all the tricks of the trade. Which means she is now developing into a better artist and is also learning how to handle the business side.
Now that she has received her well deserved opportunity to show her talent, it is undeniable by the ears of everyone who hears D, that the nation of Hip Hop is definitely her new place of residence. D, now known as Miss Dade County, belongs here and realized that there is no place, like this new home.
