Dustin Jeremihah Perdue (born December 22, 1991), known by his stage name dp MAjOR, is an American rapper, singer, songwriter, and record producer. Raised in Greencastle, Indiana, DP MAjOR expressed an interest in music at a very early age. In high school, DP MAjOR (then, "lil Who") and a few of his friends released a dozen singles on an untitled mixtape, under the name "Young Stars". After graduation, he would begin to focus more on his solo work, and learn the ropes of producing a record. In the summer of 2014, MAjOR would release the (unfinished) singles, "Clash of the Titans", and "Underdog Status", which gained quite a bit of local hype- but It wasn't until the release of "Time Of My Life" that DP MAjOR started to buzz amongst peers, and a demand for his music was created. Over a year later, DP MAjOR released the single, "Cater To Your Party" with his brother, "EP minor". The song wound up in the hands of Royalti Virtue's, CEO, Da'Rell Miller, and both brothers were offered a year long, artist development contract, under the terms of the independent label.
