D2X is finally hitting the limelight. It’s sad in the sense that he’s been putting out quality music for years now, and is just getting his due props. Want proof of his past genius? Peep my first D2X feature from 2016. I’ve been covering him for over 3 years, literally, and have remained a fan and follower. He is a lyrical giant at heart but is continuously inspired to incorporate other elements into his music.
His career finally took flight off last year’s thunderous single Woop Woop. It spread like wildfire over the city, and due to his consistent presence on social media blew away fans while creating new ones. Woop Woop hit local radio, and D was covered across a host of media sites. Interviews became standard, hitting its peak on his recent Illanoize Radio appearance.
D is a humble, kind, hard-working artist that doesn’t pay much attention to followers and play counts. He recently told me that his formula and drive to make great music has not, and will not, change.
A new record is upon us featuring the talent of Kid Marquis & GLOhan Beats. Each artist contributes a verse, showcasing their individual style and talent. VVS captures the rich and essential vibes for the summer, and celebration of the rare occurrence of warm weather in Chicago. It is inspired by Frankie Smith’s“Double Dutch Bus” classic, but producer Kid Marquis. makes it all his own with a playful 808 bass drum pattern. D is still his energetic self, wrapping up the first two verses with a fury of skillful bars and engaging expressions.
It’s only up from here.
