With over thirty years of experience, Dren STARR is a notable personality in the music industry. He is a vastly talented and skilled music producer, engineer, and DJ who started his career at 14. At 18, Dren was the first and only teenager who established and managed a hip-hop radio station in NYC, WBAD RADIO, to compete against Hot97, a rivalry documented on UPN9 news.
Dren has worked with numerous other names throughout his career, including the late great Big Punisher. Dren has produced and engineered a project for him and conducted his last interview, one of his greatest, “Big Puns.”
Dren has also been featured on the cover art of Ghostface Killahs’ album The Big Doe Rehab (CD INSERT) when CDs existed. He was also featured on Biggie’s duet album on track five in the song intro featuring Big Pun, Fat Joe, and Freeway, which is the only time Biggie and Big Pun were on a song together. Dren features on the track having a conversion with Big Pun. His other notable career highlight includes opening up the intro of track one on Fat Joe’s latest album, Family Ties.
Though he has had a fairly promising career path, Dren has also faced several challenges. Converting to what he refers to as the music industry’s “new digital era” was his most challenging problem. When he started his music career, you had to know people in person. But that’s not the case today, people have social media profiles and send messages and DMs to people they don’t know, and it’s strange how you can send a message to someone with the hopes of conducting business. But also, it’s a significant milestone for the industry as you can start from scratch and become an overnight success, which has become more common.
Sharing his wisdom, Dren advises everyone to always keep it real and their circle small. Life is a journey and not a competition, and that’s why Dren emphasizes staying in your lane. Life is all about timing and consistency; don’t force or chase something that’s not meant for you. Dren wants you to do good business but don’t burn any bridges, and always be true to yourself while staying humble.
“People can learn from my experience that as long as your grind is genuine and your heart is pure, you will always be good and have a good reputation in this industry. Because my name and business were always strong, I went away for a long period and returned as if I had never left.” Dren explains
Creating a legacy for his family remains one of Dren’s top priorities moving forward. He wants to leave a positive mark on the industry and one that his two sons will be glad to carry on. Dren believes they will also take on the mantle and continue with what he has started on the Lower East Side. The goal is to make the Lower East Side a household name like Wu-Tang did for Staten Island. To achieve this, Dren is now fully focused on creating more opportunities for his family and society at large. To him, this is the best way to leave a mark and put LES on the map.
Future of the Music Industry: Producer & Executive Danny Hajj
In life, you’re always pushed to chase your dreams. But working hard to achieve these dreams is not easy. Reaching your ultimate goals is always difficult, but if you have the courage to at least try, you’ve already gained a lot. Experience is another fruitful benefit you gain from going after what you’re passionate about in life.
An individual who had the power to go after his dreams is Danny Hajj. He has been passionate about producing good-quality music for as long as he can remember. Danny’s spirit is commendable. He moved to Atlanta and began his professional music career at the age of 22. This path demanded dedication, passion, and effort, and Danny always gave his best.
After hindrances and setbacks, he was able to achieve a remarkable milestone. A multi-platinum, Grammy-nominated group, known as Audio Cartel welcomed him as a member of their group. Audio Cartel has been producing well-known and established artists such as Migos, Eminem, Travis Scott, and various others. This has been a great highlight in Danny’s musical career. Having stern belief in himself might’ve been difficult at one point, but it definitely paid off.
Moving further ahead, Danny came to realize that his purpose in the music industry was bigger. This was when he decided to transition into the business of developing and managing the careers of big artists. In just three years, Danny has managed to become the personality behind the brands 2kBaby and Fase Yoda. His company helped them build themselves from scratch and produce multiple hits.
Danny has proved his dedication many times in different situations. This has been the core reason behind his great success. In addition to that, he always advises others to remain humble and patient in life. He practices this in his life as well. Danny’s plans for the future are extremely inspiring and are a reflection of his mindset as well. He is working to become the next big music executive and producer.
His past achievements have proved that anything can be achieved. We strongly believe that Danny will be able to get there in no time. Along with that, he has also been working on expanding his NGO, Positive Visions. This organization has been established to position low-income youth for higher education. Establishing this NGO and making an effort to expand it further to impact young lives is applaudable indeed.
Danny’s journey has not been easy, and challenges were part of his struggle, but he did not let them define him. Even without proper guidance, he managed to excel in music production due to his stellar focus and curiosity to learn. He believes that knowledge is key, and in life, you should be learning every day. Growing and challenging yourself is vital if you want to attain bigger things in life.
Individuals like Danny are an inspiration for many young artists and creators around the world. He has proved that chasing your dreams and doing what you love is possible only if you have the courage to go after your dreams.
