Always on the lookout for artists on the come up, and I think we’ve got a contender with crazy potential on our hands! Went to the Wale show in MD a few days ago and was pleasantly surprised by one of the opening acts- Darren Hanible. In addition to his humble demeanor (he thanked the crowd at least 7 times) he had a nice flow, a creative sound, and some positive messages. He performed a couple of tracks (Finally & YBN) off of his new mixtape ‘XX’ which dropped on the first of the year. His bio reads:
Darren Hanible is a hip-hop artist/producer from Washington, D.C. His music demonstrates the diversity of his generation, spanning from mainstream, trap & backpack rap to indie pop & EDM.
XX is definitely a solid project worth giving a listen to! DC or nothing.
