Darnell Williams is extremely particular about his craft. A strategic perfectionist, the Los Angeles-based artist parlayed a successful career working on music videos for artists like Mac Miller to focus on his main interest—rapping—and meticulously working on songs that have led to his music being featured on HBO’s Silicon Valley and landing him the coveted official 2016 X Games Anthem with “One Spot.”
On the heels of the horn-blasted “Blown” seeing its premiere during the fourth season of Silicon Valley, Williams is expanding the scope of his approach by releasing his EP Porno.
"Porno" speaks to Williams’ upbringing in the ghetto on the west side of Detroit, raised by a single mother and exposed to artists like Tupac Shakur and Naughty by Nature at a young age. “Porno is like when you actually get there and you realize that the industry is just as fucked up as the streets is,” explains Williams, who is currently independent. “I understand that everyone who relates and likes my music may not be from the same place as me. I understand that tales of fucked up shit might fascinate certain people, but that shit is all porn to get somebody off. And I'ma sell it to you. I don't think you feel sympathy for the stories I tell, but you want to know them.”
