Being an entertainer has always been in the cards for Kaamel “Diezel tha Hitman” Mathis. Diezel was born in Detroit, MI to a mother who was a professional jazz & blues singer, and a father who was a DJ. He looked up to artists such as Trick-Trick, NWA, Jay Z, Nas and Snoop Dogg, who all highly motivated him to develop his skills to quickly secure a spot in the entertainment industry.
Diezel’s first experiences with music came when he became Captain of the hip- hop group Goon Sqwad- a group whose music is known to give off a rugged and street vibe. After sharpening his skills with the group, Diezel began to take stages across the country alongside many that include his older brother Trick-Trick, Ice Cube, WC, and D12. But performing on stage as a rapper is not where Diezel’s journey ends.
Diezel has assumed the role of actor, securing spots in stage plays such as “A House Divided”, “Last Chance” and “It’s My Life”- as well as roles in the movie “Hostel 3” and TV movie “Last Man Standing”. He has also had his hand in writing, with credits on Trick-Trick’s albums “The People vs.” and “The Villain” released under Universal Motown and Koch records.
Along with wrapping up his first solo project “25-8-366” which is a mixtape set to hit the streets by December 2012, Diezel is also working on multiple film projects and is in the process of writing his own stage play. He has also been very vocal in displaying his love for his hometown of Detroit and is working to display the importance of unity amongst entertainers in the city. Diezel is quickly making his voice heard among many in the hip-hop community and beyond, and has no plans of fading to the background until his influence is felt by all
The show was crazy and a lot of fun. Diezel rode the hell out of the choclate wave. He will be in Fayetteville, North Carolina for the summer jam June 14-16, 2013.Make sure you follow him on twitter @DIEZELGSM And I love the fact that he answered my questions truthfully.
