Why do people choose to do bad things? Is there really an evil entity constantly trying to get us to do wrong? And if so, what is the entity that is trying to convince us to do what’s right? So many great questions, and we are ready to talk about them. Like a rose that has sprung up from the concrete, rap artist DIMI D has overcome many odds in his own life and has fought his way through the trials and temptations that have tried to take him out. Sometimes things happen in our lives that are out of our control, and the only thing we can do is try our best to move past them. Sadly, in many cases, the hardships that people face in this life have a hardening effect on the way they view the world and those living in it. We often times spiral in a downward direction due to the hardships in our life because hardships often leave a negative impact on the way we think and the way we feel. DIMI D has encountered many experiences throughout his life that could have killed him in the blink of an eye. He understands the mindset of living life on a path to self destruction. The pain in DIMI D’s life caused him to become a rebel who wanted nothing more to live life on his own terms without any rules or regulations from those in a position of higher authority. Sadly, being a rebel has a way of disconnecting us from both God and the people God has sent to be helpful to us in our lives. 

DIMI D is a name we have seen in headlines a lot in the past year. His gift in music and passion for God continues to make room for him in the music world. And just like DIMI D, we all have questions pertaining to our existence. What is life? Why I am I here? Is there life after death? Why do bad things happen to good people? Does God really exist? These are some of the most prominent questions being talked about in our world today, and if we’re not careful, we might find ourselves listening to the wrong people telling us the wrong answers. The truth is, people all over the world are in great distress and they are looking for answers that can help ease their troubled minds. 

The Project “Rebel Turned Angel” is based on the true story of how DIMI D went from being a very lost and troubled youth to becoming a much more productive individual whose mind and heart began to heal as he shifted his focus to follow God instead of the ways of this world. The record is filled with relatable stories and life lessons that are geared towards helping others understand that they are not alone. DIMI D wanted to unveil his personal hardships in lyrical format so that someone might be able to hear his story and find hope for their own life situations.

“Rebel Turned Angel” has a Boom Bap east coast style that is smothered with a West Coast vibe. As you listen to the project through your headphones, you will quickly see that everything DIMI D had to go through was a stepping stone to increase his faith and to draw him closer to the God who called him out of darkness into His marvelous Light. DIMI D credits every good thing in his life to the God who bled and died for his sins and for ours. Just like everyone else, the rapper had choices he had to make along his journey. It was up to him to decide whether or not he was going to allow the bad things that happened dictate the direction he was going to travel throughout the rest of his life. Unfortunately, DIMI D chose the wrong path for many years and ended up paying a hard price for his decisions. However, when he finally came to himself and realized that he needed to give his life and all the issues in it over to God, he was finally able to begin picking up the pieces and allowing God to heal the pain he endured as a young boy growing up on the streets of California.  

What is life? “Life is a God given gift that each of us have been blessed to experience.” Why are we here? “We are here to learn the truth, and by learning that truth we can be set free and forgiven of our wrong doings. Then, we can allow God to use our lives so that He can reach others with the same truth that has the power to save them as forgive their wrong doings as well.” Is there life after death? “Yes! Absolutely. There is life after death, and God refers to it as eternity, a life that is without end. However, the issue is that there are only two destinations we can go to after we die. We can either put our faith and trust in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ which gives us the right to be forgiven of all of our sins, or we can choose to forfeit our opportunity to be saved and spend eternity in the Lake of Fire with the Devil and his angels. It is completely up to us and we have the power to make our and utterly our choice to choose which end we want to inherit.” Why do bad things happen to good people? “Simple. We live in a broken world that is full of sin and people that are disobedient to God’s will. Since sin is a destructive demonic nature, there isn’t really a way to find eternal hope, peace, or protection outside of the covering of God Almighty.” Why do people choose to do bad things? “Well, the reason people choose to do bad things is because sin lives in the members of their body. This causes people to lean towards disobedience to God, which ultimately causes consequences that can cause us to experience extreme hardships and various types of physical and emotional pain. This is why God wants us to trust and obey Him, so that we can avoid many hardships and learn to thrive in both this life and throughout eternity.” Is there really an evil entity that is constantly trying to get us to do wrong? “Yes, the Bible calls that entity Satan. God says that Satan roams around like a roaring Lion seeking whom he may devour. Satan cannot devour us unless we choose to let him. The problem is people are constantly making decisions, that by default, give Satan legal grounds to harass them and wreak havoc in their lives.” What is the entity that is trying to convince us to do what’s right? “God the Father, Jesus Christ the Son, and the Holy Spirit of the living God. The Holy Trinity. These 3 persons who exist as the Godhead that make up the fulness of who God actually is. When we feel the nudge or we feel the thoughts to do what is right, that’s God’s voice speaking to us. The more we choose to trust and obey God’s word, the more His favor and grace will shine in and through our lives for the whole world to see. This heavenly light inside of us will produce good deeds that are done on the outside through out behaviors and choices, which then cause people to see those good deeds and give thanks to the one true God for His goodness and mercy. Amen!”

Denisa Debocci Speaks on Female Entrepreneurs

Our Founder and CEO, Denisa Debocci, is an advocate for female entrepreneurs. Taking the courageous leap of faith into business ownership, she began to build foundations for both her own endeavors and others’.

We asked about her thoughts on modern day business, and why female entrepreneurs are on the rise.

Decades ago, you would seldom see women in positions that we see now. Along with the advancement of societal beliefs, it’s safe to say that women have evolved. We’re becoming greater and greater with each generation. That was the goal from the very start.

Denisa on her thought about the changes.

It’s always nice to have good music you can vibe with. But it’s even better when you find great music you can vibe with! Wouldn’t you agree?

Introducing DIMI D, an upcoming CHH Artist based in the heart of Fontana, CA. Ever since DIMI D was a young boy, his heart was always filled with a love for music. Everywhere he went, he would always sing the lyrics to his favorite songs. Once the young rapper reached the age of middle school, he developed a passion for free styling. This was the chapter in his life when he realized music was the path he wanted to pursue.

Although DIMI D had a passion for music, he struggled with the thought of people looking down on him for being a Christian Rapper. He didn’t want people to think that his music was weak just because it reflected his faith in the God. Unfortunately, most Christian content over the years has caught a bad wrap. This is primarily do to the fact that Christians haven’t really had a strong budget to work with. However, a lot has changed over the years, and now Christians are investing thousands and even millions into entertainment projects. PSYCHO is simply one of those songs that proves you can still go hard as a Christian without using any profanity or forms of vulgar language.

We decided to reach out to DIMI D and asked him why he chose to do music? This was his response: “I do music for the people who feel like they don’t belong. I also do it for the people who love West Coast music and R&B. I want my music to relate to people who might have a similar story as me. If my music can relate to someone else’s life, than i’ve reached my goal. If it doesn’t, then I guess my songs will simply be normal tracks like everyone else.”

DIMI D was introduced to God when he was just a little boy. The concept of God and the truth of the Bible always seemed to just make sense to him. However, there were many times along the way when his adversary the Devil tried to attack him in hopes of destroying his life. But praise to be God the Devils plans never succeeded! DIMI D wants the world to know that he is grateful to God for saving his life and blessing him with a family that truly cares about his walk with the Lord. Music and Jesus mean so much to him. As a matter of fact, the rising rap artist emphatically credits his musical abilities to the Lord Jesus Christ. “Without God, I would not be able to make music that has a positive impact on people’s lives.”

So, what it the song PSYCHO actually about? The rapper told us that: “My song PSYCHO speaks to the idea that once I step into the booth and approach the mic, I spit the craziest lyrics and hottest bars I can come up with. So in that sense, you can kind of say that my music is somewhat Psychotic in that way. I really enjoyed producing the music to this song. It kinda has a scary vibe to it, but the other elements I mixed in really makes the track go hard.”

Most people who vibe with the CHH music genre know that it is very uncommon for Christian Rap Artists to land movie placements. And the artists who have landed movie placements, are most always signed to record deals with semi to well-known recording labels. But, every now and then the world gets to witness a few rare individuals who rise up from the ashes, miraculously beat the odds, and blaze a trail of eye capturing victory right in front of the people who hoped they wouldn’t succeed. Well, today we are beyond excited to talk about two extraordinary individuals that fall directly into that category.

Many of you may already know this particular powerhouse. It is no secret that his career has been a pretty inspiring phenomenon within the CHH industry for nearly a decade. Shockingly, even major secular music execs have complimented his work and praised his astounding achievements. Dominic Bonsignore, more commonly known as the rap artist “Harmini”, is a professional independent rap artist, songwriter, actor, model, and film producer. His humility, hard work, dedication, and faith have not only caused him to acquire top tier skills as an international recording artist, but have also made him an extremely high profile contact within the music business. Out of all the numbers in your phone that get deleted, if you are fortunate enough to have Harmini’s, guard it with your life!

As fate would have it, living on the other side of the United States of America another dynamic gem piece in the music industry was discovered. His talent was often overlooked and discredited by the people around him, especially to the well known artists within the CHH music genre. That is, until he met Harmini. We would like to introduce to you a rising voice in the CHH music community who goes by the name “P.O.G. The MC For Christ”. At the time Harmini connected with this humble, gifted, God loving Buffalo, NY rapper, P.O.G. was weary and struggling to keep hope alive. Which is understandable when your constantly overlooked by the same people who yell “Lets unify! We support you! Lets unify! We support you!” at their shows, but then completely neglect you as soon as they walk off stage. Sadly, most of the prominent names you know in CHH are just that – a two-faced show. But Harmini took the time to both encourage and call out the gifts inside of “P.O.G. The MC For Christ”. And when the opportunity came up for Harmini to write another movie track, he teamed up with the Buffalo artist and they co-wrote an amazing single titled “BAD FOLKS.

So, what is the synopsis of this feature film titled “BAD FOLKS”? And how does the song “BAD FOLKS” tie into the movie? Well, the film is a murder mystery by MGI films and the story takes place inside of a city bar room. There are a total of eight people in this bar. All of which are considered to be “Bad Folk”. One of the individuals at the bar managed to commit a murder without being seen. Now, none of them are able to leave until the real killer is uncovered and the murder mystery is solved. Everyone inside the bar is a suspect, and none of them want to fess up to the killing. The song “BAD FOLKS” ties in very well, and quite honestly in our opinion, is really genius. The song has an intriguing intro that sets up the mood for the record. Harmini starts off the song by saying: “8 Bad Folk. 1 bar. 1 murder. Everyone’s a suspect”. Then the chorus drops addressing the topic of prayer, as a form of direction and encouragement to the innocent who are being interrogated as suspects. The song is also clearly addressing all people everywhere all around the world who have fallen on hard times.

Chorus lyrics: “PRAY! When you feel alone and nobody understands what you’re going through PRAY! When the walls close in and you got nowhere to go, boy you know you better PRAY! When the world starts trippin and nobody seems to listen that’s when you gotta PRAY! You gotta PRAY! You gotta PRAY!”. This was actually a very clever approach, especially since the song doesn’t feel “preachy” at all, even though in a lot of ways – it’s PREACHING! The song highlights the life of godless people in society, classifying them within the category of being “Bad Folk”. These are the people in society who choose to live in a way that both violates (and breaks) the law, puts the lives of innocent people in harms way, and causes drama and discord within our communities. The entire song, although wrapped in the story of a murder mystery, is clearly teaching people to “seek God” and “Pray” when life gets hard. And it also highlights the fact that living life as a rebel isn’t the way to go, even though the culture continues to teach society that it is. So yeah, like we said, pure Genius! Harmini and P.O.G The MC for Christ definitely “murdered” that track!

The song was well received by the public, and has went on to encourage tens of thousands of people who absolutely love the dynamics of the newly released single and the positive message that it delivers. The ONLY negative review we could find searching the web, came from one group of individuals on the Guerilla Cross “SPEAK LIFE” Radio Show. Which is ironic, because their very name suggests that they would be first in line to “Speak Life” over the record. Go figure. Nevertheless, their opinion crashed and burned as the “BAD FOLKS” movie track was praised by the masses and went on to produce over 80,000 streams in the first nine months of it’s release. WOW!!

MixedByPhilip of Parallel Sounds Studio Speaks on Making The Top 5 Recording Studios List

This past March, The Detroit Entrepreneur released a list of our top 5 recording studios in Michigan, which included popular studios like Royal House Recording, Parallel Sounds, and more.

Today, we had the opportunity to follow up with MixedByPhilip, founder and head engineer of Parallel Sounds Studio(s). Ranking at number 2, the engineer responded with, “we are heading for #1” upon announcement. He is doing just that.

Now entering his 9th year in the industry, Phil Saponaro combined his skills, vision, and dedication to bring Metro Detroit’s future stars a quality, comfortable space to create. From recording with the iconic Jeremih to rising local artists, MixedbyPhil has become a familiar name in the music community.

I was really shocked when we made #2 because a lot of the studios on the list were a lot nicer then mine. They have hundreds of thousands of dollars in equipment, when do not just yet. The support from the people I work with is what must of did it. I love them!

– MixedByPhilip

Confident entrepreneurs stand by their careers, striving to be the best of the best. With roots in entrepreneurship, he humbly yet boldly states his studio is deserving of the #1 spot. Many can humbly yet boldly say the same, based on positive testimonies alone.

 I really think for #1 it’s just going to take us building up our cosmetics. I already know we have the best engineers in Michigan and we are constantly getting better. In all humbleness, nobody in Michigan can compete with our quality. Once my team and I open more fancy multi million dollar studios and (hopefully) steal Julian (of Royal House) I don’t think will have much competition.

After a model rehearsal, his life would be changed forever. DeMaris is an actor and director, but DeMaris’ journey began when he stumbled upon a production in Downtown Detroit where he found the producer and asked if any extras were needed.

The producer replied and told him yes and also asked if he had a white shirt, where DeMaris said yeah even though he didn’t. He then ran five blocks to buy a white shirt and came back and things have been going great for DeMaris since then.

With Glory to God: iamkevinrider Presents “Kastin Krownz”

While the hip hop and rap industry is heavily influenced by violence, women, and money, iamkevinrider’s faith-based songs Glorify God, yet in a way many audiences can understand. “I believe music is my gift and that God has called me and chose me to use this gift to further his Kingdom, build the church, and speak to the nations,” the California native expressed.

The Artist

Formerly known as K-Rider, iamkevinrider has a testimony and a past, as all Christians do. At 15, he was incarcerated for burglary and sentenced to five years. Back to the streets, he would get caught up and incarcerated once more. “I found God in jail,” he admits. His past fuels the drive to preach to hip hop and rap audience in hopes his testimony will speak to people. 

Featured on This is 50, “Kastin Krownz” is one of his singles that inspires the audience to refrain from conforming to the norm this lost society has set. Rap is lacking the Gospel, and it takes artists like iamkevinrider to fulfill what the industry needs. 

“I am a Christian who raps,” iamkevinrider shares. “I am not a rapper who is Christian.”

The BAUS Experience – The Grooming House

Like a BAUS

BAUS – The Grooming House started 5 years ago with the idea of making men’s grooming into a relaxing, luxury experience.

Their services range from haircuts, beard priming, waxing, and beyond, but they all aim to groom and maintain a certain look for each guest. While they intend to give men of all ages a relaxing service, BAUS is more than just a modern salon with the respected traditions of a barbershop.


The quality. The luxury treatment.

Men come to BAUS more than a haircut, the guests feel like friends and like they’re part of something special. As the Detroit culture started to notice their Birmingham location, the BAUS community started to grow.

Owners Daniella and Mike Djekovic, used travel as a form of inspiration, which is how another idea was born.

The BAUS Experience.

Along with expanding their staff at the Birmingham, BAUS opened a second location in Downtown Rochester that includes a cocktail lounge. (We love it.) This is a twist and special touch to their already unique barbershop experience.

While men’s grooming is their specialty, their passion and people are what truly makes the BAUS experience.

While giving the best branding knowledge around, he also founded The Suits for Success Youth Mentoring Program (EST’16) which mentors young kids directly from Detroit, MI. Andrei’s personality is fully powered from Detroit culture (which we love), from wanting a dance battle with popular Detroit rapper Sada Baby to having his own brand centered around the hard hustling spirit of a Detroiter.

Andrei is everything a CEO should strive to be, not only conducting business in the highest regard but also being a passionate caring individual.
