As an Artist:

For Sugi Dakks, existing outside the norm is the norm. The left of center genre-bending Hip-Hop artist aims to embody all his quirks, idiosyncrasies, and mannerisms with a boldness and strength.

A mixed race (Japanese/African American) multi-instrumentalist/ rapper/singer/slam poet/producer/activist from a small town, Sugi Dakks is no stranger to being an outsider. His debut EP “Not All That Glitters is Gold” is an extension and enhancement of this message to find power in uniqueness.
