Born Darius Lewis in Phoenix, Arizona, 18-year-old DBangz is an undeniable artist whose raw, viral smash “Thick Niggas and Anime Tiddies” cut through the crowded meme rap scene in 2017.
Due to his pure curiosity and fandom of prolific, elusive rap figures MF Doom and Earl Sweatshirt, the goofy, skateboarding freethinker began recording music at the age of 14 in his childhood home garage. This is where he developed his affinity for lewd lyrics, iconic hip-hop samples and cartoon themes. After 2017’s Summer Booty Sweat and 2018’s Winter Booty Icicles, a pair of solid projects that amplify DBangz’s pornographic and comedic subject matter, he released a 2018 follow-up, Konohagakure, on which he departed from his uber-playful style. Keahonui, a six-track EP released the following year, fully showcases DBangz’s versatility, desire to be taken seriously and boundless potential to be a crucial voice in music. Today, DBangz boasts hundreds of millions of streams across all digital streaming platforms. Multiple projects are slated for 2020, including a proper debut album, on which fans can anticipate continued growth from the promising up-and-comer.
