Dwight Conroy Farrell (born August 25, 1973), better known by the stage name Count Bass D, is an American rapper, record producer and multi-instrumentalist from Nashville, Tennessee. His production style is characterised by layers of short MPC samples and film snippets complemented with live instrumentation, and eccentric lyrics laid atop.

Count Bass D was born on August 25, 1973, and was raised in the Bronx and Canton Ohio. At the age of four his father, a West Indian minister, encouraged him to play music at his church. Count thereafter learned to play the piano, organ, and bass. He then started gaining interest in Hip Hop, becoming better at rhyming while rapping with friends.

In his late teens, Count Bass D enrolled at Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro, to take advantage of the school’s instruments to finish his demo tape. He then broadcasted his first Hip-Hop video on campus. His demo led him to getting a record deal with Chaos Recordings where he released his first studio album, Pre-Life Crisis in early 1995.[2] The album was considered too progressive[citation needed], and the label found it difficult to market the album. Count was then dropped from the label.

In 1997 Count released his first EP, Art For Sale on independent record label Spongebath Records, the album was later released in 2005, in Japan on Octave Records.
