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.’

Get To Know NC Lyricist Shame

As a creative lyricist, talented in the art of storytelling, Shame is bringing Hip-Hop back to its roots, while still keeping up with the evolution the genre has experienced. His inspirations come from artists such as Q-tip, Biggie Smalls, A Tribe Called Quest, Tupac, Big L, Nas, Mos Def, Eminem, and Rakim. Like many of these artists, Shame got his start to fame by competing in rap battles and distributing his music through local college radio stations.

Before his quest to conquer the music world began, Shame had to decide which parts of life were going to make or break him. Shame was born in the tough streets of Capital Heights, Maryland, however, his mother and father raised him in Landover, Maryland. Determined not to become a statistic or victim of gang violence or drugs, Shame used music to inspire and keep himself busy.

 “I got my name from my grandmother because I was hooked on the movie A Low Down Dirty Shame as a kid, but it stuck with me when I grew up in the battle rapping era. People used to say I put shame to the rappers I battled, hence, Shame.”

Shame has lived in Raleigh, NC since 2013, where he continues to create music, and dropped his first project, The Sequence, in February 2016, featuring the lead single, “Still Ballin.”

He has performed at top venues throughout the Triangle (Raleigh/ Durham/ Chapel Hill) and beyond, including, Pour House, Imurj, Kings, Deep South, The Pinhook, The Lincoln Theater, Duke Energy Center, The Ritz, and The Blind Tiger amassing new fans along the way with his high-energy stage presence and dynamic delivery. Shame has also graced the stage opening for big names such as Bone Thugs & Harmony, Twista, Dave East, Yo Gotti, Ghost Face Killah, Raekwon, Slum Village, Nappy Roots, and many more! With the new release of his break-out album Genesis 98’ in October 2018 where he speaks on life situations and touches on current events, it’s no doubt that shame will be a huge break out in the soon future.

DA Donnieboy Delivers “Black and Blue” & “Burn it Up” (Videos)

 

Configaration Records announces two new video releases from their artist DA Donnieboy. “Black and Blue” is produced by Configa Beats and “Burn it Down” is produced by Fro Magnum Man (also a Configaration Records artist).

Both videos embody the harsh reality of what the norm in America has become, which is racial genocides by way of police and governmental buttons. “In Black and Blue” DA Donnieboy addresses this with cut-throat truth serum. He’s aggressive in deliverance with validated reason…Is this the land of the free or the land of the oppressed? Why are these genocides justified? Has Uncle Sam covered “your nuts up”? DA Donnieboy spits bar for bar which actually is a fact for a fact!  In “Burn it Down” he mentions the names of lives who were murdered by the hands of police while he proclaims it’s time to burn it down and rejoice in the ashes.

These video releases are taken from DA Donnieboy’s new album ‘Dreaming Azure’…”In this world filled with blues, Azure is the perfect balance between light and dark. Find your center…find your peace…even if only in your dreams.”

DA Donnieboy has aimed to create his best work to date and evidently has hit the mark. Transcend into this dose of earmilk filled with tales of motivation, friendship, self-worth, mental health, and most importantly how to stand up against racism and societal brutalities…Join the dream or wake up!

‘Dreaming Azure’ encapsulates Donnie’s inner struggle with life’s realities and trying to capture dreams of the future. His realizations, memories, and raw emotions are heightened by immaculate production and polished mixing. Stream the album here on Bandcamp and connect with the Detroit-based Hip Hop recording artist below.
