About Dia: Out of South Arlington comes the DMV's most unique & diverse artist, Dia. As he states "If Linkin Park had Lupe Fiasco and production done by Daft Punk, you get me."
With a strong fan base that continues to grow Dia out sells most DMV artists. From killin tracks to murdering live performances Dia is in a league of his own. With beat boxers, break dancers, costumes, skits, and live bands, Dia is a complete entertainer.
In 2007, Dia scored his first smash record "I Wanna" with fellow underground emcee Illnovelist. The single was a commercial success and even appeared on the movie soundtrack for " Running on Empty Dreams". He followed that up in 2008, with the political and inspirational track entitled "Obama" with Baltimore emcee Jade Fox and Rrice which was an attack at the republican party. Which started a buzz. Then in 2009 Midieast welcomed Dia aboard for their assault on the DMV. With the team that consists of Frayz, 2Face ya WildBoy, Rated R, and Rob Rugah.
Dia brings something new to the table. Here in 2011, Dia is already back at it! The new preview of his album leaked thru the DMV streets. And after the underground buzz was growing, Dia has been killing live performances all thru the DMV including being a headline artist on the "The Loud Tour".

Dia is also currently remaking the Beastie Boys classic "Sabotage", along with Innerloop records' J-Scrilla.
