Deastro Dollar is currently living out a childhood dream. As children, many dream of making it big in one way or another. But, there are few people who really have the drive to make this happen.br /br /Deastro Dollar is clearly among those who have the drive to make it happen. Ever since his days in Long Island, NYnbsp;he has been rapping and writing rhymes. While he was always good at rapping, it was not until recently when he realized he could make a career out of it. When that time came, he began putting his team together.br /br /Not only is Deastro Dollar one of the top rappers in the Atlanta area, he is also one of the rising managers in the area.

Check out the entire interview below:br /br /strongWhere did the name Deastro Dollar come from?/strongbr /Wow, niggasnbsp;havenbsp;been calling me Deastro sincenbsp;I wasnbsp;eleven, twelve,nbsp;years old. This older cat from my neighbor gave me that name. He saidnbsp;I was a little bad mo’fucker and had a big head, so he started calling me Deastro, which is a villain from the wholenbsp;”G.I. Joe” cartoon and it just stuck. Then, a couple years later, my cousin started calling me D. Dollarz and that shit just stuck with me too.br /br /strongHow long have you been recording original material?/strongbr /It’s been about two years sincenbsp;I really started taking this shit serious and recording original material that the streets havenbsp;been hearing.
