How did it all start? At 14 years old, David had a dream that a lot of young teenagers have: he wanted to make music for a living, get famous, and become a platinum-selling recording artist. It wasn’t until he stumbled across a community of DIY rappers on YouTube that he realized he could record music and make beats without leaving his bedroom. He saved up nearly a thousand dollars and shortly after his 15th birthday, he purchased a computer, microphone, and an audio interface to start recording with.
Fame and money quickly became afterthoughts. David fell in love with the crafts of rapping and producing, routinely sacrificing sleep in order to create songs and search for inspiration from his favorite artists. Heavily influenced by Kanye West, Drake, The Weeknd, Frank Ocean, Joe Budden, Kendrick Lamar, and Linkin Park, David took an eclectic approach to producing from the beginning while developing a conventional but engaging approach to rapping. Lately, he’s been inspired by electronic artists such as Yaeji, Rüfüs Du Sol, and Zhu.
