D-Rage ‘Deep Fire’ Debut Album

Hawaiian Hip Hop artist D-Rage releases his debut album titled ‘Deep Fire’ available now on all digital platforms. The 10-track project features B.Dvine, STS Blue, Thomas Coppola, Truck Jewels, and Gray Ston3.

D-Rage brings his A-game along with raw emotion and blatantly honest rhymes. He holds no bars when it comes to his past filled with demons, pain, tears, and self-medication. But don’t get it twisted, D-Rage is claiming his life back both as a man and a wordsmith.

The Breakout sets the album off with D-Rage declaring his readiness to rise. Unlike others, he is on another level and not skipping any corners or taking the fake route. In Cross The Line D-Rage’s cut-throat lyrics paint a vivid scene of the consequences and repercussions one might face for crossing him.

The Realest serves as the album’s anthem with a catchy hook sure to resonate. Still on his quest to rise from the ashes, D-Rage’s mental and physical are unstoppable. He vows not to fall for any facades or cookie-cutter bullsh*t. Listeners are sure to get inside the mind of D-Rage in Sacreligious. He shares about the trouble he’s conjured up from childhood to adulthood both in the home and in the streets. Sheesh piggybacks as we learn D-Rage is a natural psycho who needs to be put on chill mode. However, given the current state of the world, it makes sense he’s prepared for war…Vicious Malicious is a track for those who’ve done D-Rage wrong dating back to the third grade. For them, his dark intentions remain afloat.

Eyes on the Prize reflects on D-Rage’s driving force to exchange pills and excuses for a name in the game. This is the start of his shine and the start of him going places. All eyes are on him while his eyes are on the prize. Want What I Want reinforces his direction towards the prize, yet this menace at heart will move his own way with a back seat of alter egos.

In Deep, D-Rage takes listeners to a period where he was lost in negativity with a deleted soul. He depicts a life of being brainwashed, surviving only by his tears. The Warning mops up those minutes of sadness and brings us back to D-Rage in real-time…An artist ready to shake the game and rumble with the best in the game…D-Rage is here to make a name for himself by any means.

‘Deep Fire’ is brimming with gritty bass, striking tones, and cinematic vibes that heighten and intensify D-Rage’s emotion and complexity. Those unfamiliar with the Hawaiian sensation will become well versed after listening to ‘Deep Fire.’
