LA-by-way-of-Milwaukee artist, DC The Don, has released his debut project with Rostrum Records. Come As You Are is DC’s mission-statement to fans about “keeping it 100% yourself.” Being from a city like Milwaukee, it would’ve been easy for him to sink into the mold of the traditional midwest sound. Yet, once you press play on this kid, you realize he’s far from just another drill rapper from the region. DC crafts athletic rhymes and earworm hooks in his lyrics, all while delivering them with hyper-melodic flow.
The 14-track effort is filled with numerous highlights, including “Red Light” feat. YBN Almighty Jay & DDG, his biggest release to date with over 5 million streams, and a personal favorite of mine, “Campfire Story,” a moody summer jam which he recently dropped a sick music video for.
Along with the new album, DC treated fans with a video for his fast-moving July-released single, “Nascar Racer.” The video dropped late last night and is already over 50k views on Youtube, while the single itself has risen to over 325k streams on Spotify. The Cobain-directed visual cuts between scenes of the young rapper driving through an eye-popping CGI landscape, evoking visually-striking films like Speed Racer, Akira, and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.
