Born Dexter Easley Jr., DJ Dex was raised in Atlanta, Georgia and later moved to Charleston, South Carolina where his father, Dr. Dexter Easley Sr. is the pastor of the New Life Christian Church.

Less than seven years later, DJ Dex would become one of the most popular DJ’s in the southeast. Inspired and encouraged by his father, DJ Dex began deejaying Gospel events and eventually started a career as a Gospel DJ.

He also performs at various gospel events at churches and conventions all over the country.
“My vision is to translate the Word of God through hip-hop and encourage youth through my music that it is okay to be excited and get crunk for Christ. I want to help our youth and young adults spread the Word of God through music” said DJ Dex.
