Hot16realtalk welcomes DTown to the show.In an era saturated with aspiring MCs all striving for the status of “the best rapper alive”, the story of Ohio native DTown is a refreshing exception to the quick route for fame and success. The first artist began his journey when he formed Da Kreek with his younger brother Mello Dee. DTown made himself notable through a calculated approach to the game – no small feat considering his background in production, music marketing, graphic design & event co-ordination. The hardwork of the rap duo began to pay off, with DTown earning several hip hop award nominations and acknowledgement as the “hardest working artist” they’ve known.
DTown has currently embarked on a solo journey and is preparing to release a mixtape later this year. DTown’s lyrics touch on everything from his upbringing in Youngstown, Ohio to complex relationships with friends, family & associates. The mixtape is not only embodies who DTown is as a rapper, but also who he is as an artist and a person. Inspired by his favorite artists, DTown posesses a love for storytelling, as well as thought provoking lyrics & brash metaphors. DTown started writing at the age of 14 and learned to produce music for himself due to not having a producer or dj. From then on DTown is constantly creating new music leading to his current style.
