The Makings of DAZE GSD
On stage or sitting in a coffee shop, DAZE brings with him the same sincerity that he puts into his music. Born Michael Braxton, this Bronx native is doing plenty to take his music and his company Get Shit Done Worldwide (G.S.D.) global. On the grind for 11 years now, DAZE found his “first love, my first drug” in High school. At the age of 17, he began manipulating his poetry school assignments into messages for the masses. He recalls his music lair being equipped with nothing more than a PlayStation, the FunkMaster MTV Music Generator video game, and headphones he used as a microphone. He shares, “My cousin connected the PlayStation to the stereo to the computer. That was our first studio. If we messed up, we would have to record the whole song all over again. That was crazy”
His music alias DAZE started out as a neighborhood nickname. Soon the Bronx rapper discovered his mic delivered bars left his audience in the daze he was named after.
