The ability to tell a great story comes generally from experience. If you don't experience, you don't know. If you stay in one place all your life, you have to rely on others to bring you their tales of faraway lands. The artist known as Dex Kwasi doesn't have to resort to hearsay as the tales he tells comes from an experience that in hip-hop, is uniquely his. Dex was born in Dallas, TX to parents of Ghanaian descent. At age 6 his parents decided to move home to Ghana, where they took their young son and opened him up to a whole new world in Africa. Some years later he moved back to the US, to the south side of Chicago, and then later to Oklahoma City, four radically difference places -- all of which helped Dex gain his open perspective, and hone his lyrical abilities.
