After writing poetry as an outlet for her emotions, Diamond Barmer realized the power she held with her pen. Now professionally known as “DEETRANADA”, Dee transforming from a feeling of nothingness, the young Baltimore rap phenom began making freestyle videos on social media. Her posts went viral, and DEE’s lyrical prowess and song making abilities were broadcast to a national audience. As a result she was able to leverage that into tours, endorsements and more. DEETRANADA came a long way from her living room floor making videos, and she’s using her talent to go even further.
