Currently based in Los Angeles, he is working with a number of emerging producers in order to broaden his aural scope - dancing between hip-hop, R&B and electronic soundscapes. I got a chance to learn a little bit more about the emerging artist and his latest single "Elements" from our little Q&A which you can read about further below:
MHB: How long have you been creating music for?
Darrell: I started senior year in high school but didn't start taking it seriously until I dropped out of college in 2015.
MHB: When did the elements start to take shape?
Darrell: The lyrics for Elements were originally for a different beat but when I heard the instrumental that I found on SoundCloud, I figured the aggression on the beat matched the lyrics perfectly.
MHB: What kind of subjects does it draw upon?
Darrell: It draws upon pain, hunger and desire for the most part. No filter at all and just being able to spill whatever is on your mind.
MHB: Is this the sound you're going to be heading for?
Darrell: I wanted to mostly experiment with this sound because most of my music before showed more vulnerability. I'm definitely looking to dabble more into it but i wouldn't say my sound is only going to consist of these types of beats.
MHB: What else do you have coming up this year?
Darrell: I have an EP called Wilcox Ave. I want to drop this summer so hopefully this single gets buzz before then.
On his new single 'Elements' Darrell notes:
"It's about drawing on negative and positive elements in your life such as, friends, family, fear, failure and success. I wrote it when I was angry, mostly for being taken for granted as a rapper / artist - not having my lyrical contributions taken seriously."
