About Dutch Capital: On January 8, 1989, within the shadow of our nation’s capital, in the neighboring state of Maryland, Javon Washington began his journey to stardom. The only son of five siblings, Javon “Dutch” Washington quickly was taught the value of perseverance, from his single-parent mother. Soon the family relocated to Washington, D.C., where the young boy was forced to navigate the tough urban streets. By the age of eight, the youthful aspiring rapper had already penned his first lyrical offering and at the age of fifteen he appeared on the Hip Hop track “So Fly”. Consequently, the hook to “So Fly” was written by Ron Riley (Kanye West’s Good Music Recording Label) and Eddie B (Fatty Koo Television show). This collaboration granted the youngster his first opportunity to travel to the city of dreams, New York City, where the song was featured on a local television show, “Blowing Up…Fatty Koo”. This experience ignited a flame in the youthful artist and inspired him to follow this road to fame and fortune. He began to refer to himself as Dutch Capital, in homage of his city.
Inspired by artist like Jay-Z, Young Jeezy, Kanye West and T.I., the young rapper polished his street-wise swagger over the years and mastered his craft. Dutch Capital found himself becoming one of the area’s most notable up-and-coming Hip Hop artists. He was now a fixture in the D.C. Hip Hop scene, his freestyles and written lyrical compositions far beyond his years. As a result, Dutch had compiled quite the repertoire of recordings, working in local studios and performing whenever possible in some of D.C.’s hottest spots. Dutch became a sought after talent by the city’s promoters and nightclub owners.
Dutch Capital has worked with such industry heavy-hitters as; Grafh, Maino, B5 and vocalist, Sammy. Dutch joined forces with now co-manager, industry veteran, Chris Sainsbury (Bad Boy Records &- Making The Band Tour Manager to Brandy and Artist Development/Event Booker for Chris Brown ).
