Yes, you read that right. Derek Minor (CEO of Reflection Music Group) is also a very talented barista- but you won’t find him at the Starbucks on La Brea. First of all, his headquarters is in Nashville and secondly and more importantly, he’s too busy pushing out #1 records and running an empire. The talented MC and business man sat down with us at DASH to talk with us during Grammy week about his newest releases and brought in one of his artists Canon to chat with us as well.

More About Derek Minor
Award-winning Derek Minor is enjoying chart-topping success with his new single “Change the World,” that reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot AC/CHR chart Feb. 6th. The song is from Minor’s current project Reflection, that was No. 1 on Billboard’s Rap Album chart and debuted No. 7 on Billboard’s Christian Album chart. Minor grew up in Middle, Tenn. and received a bachelor’s degree in Recording Industry Management from Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) in 2006. He began his music career in 2007, through a record deal with an independent label that quickly folded. Minor quickly became a member of a small, elite class of Hip Hop artists who are adept at MCing, producing, and running their own companies. Two of his previous albums won Stellar Awards, Empire (2015) and Minorville (2013), along with Dove and Grammy nominations. Minor’s wordplay and relatable lyrics have made him an in-demand collaborator who has worked with the likes of Lecrae, Andy Mineo, and Colton Dixon. As a producer, Minor received a 2015 Dove Award for his production contributions to Lecrae’s Anomaly album. Minor’s Reflection Music Group roster includes celebrated acts Canon, Tony Tillman, and Deraj.
