Introduce Yourself to D.O.M of DnD’s New Album “Please B Patient, I’ll Die Soon”



Scorching the hip-hop scene from Calgary, Alberta, is songwriter and rapper D.O.M of DnD with his jam-packed and dynamic 18-track album entitled, Please B Patient, I'll Die Soon.


The Canadian rapper has been spitting bars and writing rhymes for eight years. He has myriad musical influences, ranging from veterans like Eminem to Joyner Lucas. As the pandemic hit, D.O.M of DnD began partaking in the weekly ciphers hosted by the subreddit "r/makinghiphop."


Now an integral part of Splinter Faction, the supergroup from the same subreddit, D.O.M of DnD is ready to continue blazing trails with his recent body of work, the 18-track Please B Patient, I'll Die Soon.

The album starts with a spicy collaboration between D.O.M of DnD, SYLLAblistic, and Jay Cactus entitled "Counting My Blessings." The track captivates us from the moment the mysterious and hazy production floats through the speakers. D.O.M of DnD opens the track while counting his blessings and throwing all the energy into his conceptual and tightly-knit bars. SYLLAblistic's charismatic and confident flow evens the song with a spitfire rap that easily brings us to the outro.


Jumping into track number two, "How 2 Fall In Luv Pornstars," D.O.M of DnD greets the speakers solo in this how-to track while teaching listeners a thing or two about achieving what might seem impossible. Although D.O.M of DnD attacks the verse with his energy-packed performance, his bars are quite playful and prompt a few giggles here and there. It's quite a clever track and definitely worth the listen.


Onto track three, "Autopilot," this listening experience features the production stylings of Legion Beats, kicking off with a smooth and sultry jazz/hip-hop beat. This introspective song helps listeners understand a more personal side to D.O.M of DnD as he expresses feelings on "Autopilot" and navigating through sticky situations. Legion Beats' melodic and mellow production rounds out the song to perfection.


On track four, "What If?" we hear D.O.M of DnD pair up with rapper OCTOBER and the blissful production stylings of KC Stoner. As D.O.M of DnD tackles the first verse, KC Stoner's slow-burn and melancholy production brings us all the emotion and grit we could ask for. OCTOBER's equally introspective verse blesses us with his poised and composed performance while asking all sorts of relatable, mind-boggling questions.


Reaching track number five, "The Perch," D.O.M of DnD hits us with another solo track that pounces through the speakers with his hard-hitting, thoughtful bars and soft production. If there's anything we've noticed thus far is that D.O.M of DnD is following in the footsteps of the articulate, sharp, conceptual, and tightly-knit Eminem sounds, this song is a perfect example.

In the first interlude, "Your Conscience (skit)," D.O.M of DnD opens up from the perspective of his conscience, letting him know that he's not doing too bad. Not the best, but not the worst. It's a wholesome and inspirational skit that helps us see a softer side of the rapper we've come to know.


Onto another scorcher of a single is track seven, "Can't Feel A Thing," pumping through the speakers with a heavy old-school beat alongside D.O.M of DnD's quick and sharp-shooting bars. Featuring Anno Domini Beats, the song's hazy and mysterious production blesses us with pristine old-school vibes that help this track feel like a classic. It's a head-bopper and perhaps our favorite track on the album...so far.


D.O.M of DnD sinks deeper into his intriguing lyrical concepts on the eighth track, "Kindness Is A Sin." While the gentle and harmonious production hums through the speakers, D.O.M of DnD expands on his perception of kindness and how it doesn't always turn out for the better. It's an edgy deep dive into the mind of D.O.M of DnD that's rounded out with spine-chilling production that washes our speakers in darkness and emotion.

Reaching track nine and the album's halfway point, "Your Conscience pt.2 (skit)," we're met with the second skit of D.O.M of DnD's conscience, this time giving him the rundown on his music career. While acknowledging how he prefers making edgy art, the conscience suggests turning down the down-bad while prompting him to rethink his far-out lyrical concepts.


As we abruptly move into track ten, "Calgary Is Mine," a smooth and melodic acoustic guitar picks through the speakers while D.O.M of DnD jumps into his confident and poised first verse. He brings all the energy and hard-hitting vibes we could ask for from a modern, young hip-hop act, and D.O.M of DnD is making it clear he's here to stay. Produced by KC Stoner, the atmospheric production paired with D.O.M of DnD's dominant performance is a match made in heaven.


It doesn't stop there. On track eleven, "Finals Season," D.O.M of DnD grabs the song by the horns in this punchy solo. He rumbles our speakers with thick 808s and crispy snares that clap alongside D.O.M of DnD's captivating bars and thrilling performance. This is the most energetic and dominant we've seen D.O.M of DnD, and we couldn't be happier to see another young artist flourish.


Bringing back Anno Domini Beats for track number twelve, "Quiet Kid Shit," D.O.M of DnD also pairs up with the jaw-dropping sounds of Rittz, who opens the song with a bang. His quick and conceptual bars lock us into his gripping performance that flows into D.O.M of DnD's fierce flow with a dynamic back-and-forth. We love this heavy-hitting toe-tapper and all its energy, power, and might.


Drifting into a more reflective and emotional piece with track thirteen, "Hate Love," a deeply nostalgic 50s-esque tune floats through the verse while shifting into the shimmering lofi-inspired production. D.O.M of DnD takes this track solo while opening up about personal themes, experiences, and nihilism around him. It's a short but sweet track that feels like a page ripped out of D.O.M of DnD's diary.


Teaming up with rappers Litorical and Pat Clover for track fourteen, "Something Somewhere," D.O.M of DnD opens this song with his swift bars that sink into the smooth-sailing and melodic production. Litorical's breezy introduction brings us some seriously conceptual and dominant bars while discussing the woes of living in uncertainty. Finally, Pat Clover closes the track with his cool, calm, collected verse that blesses us with uplifting themes of landing exactly where you need to be.


Reaching the third interlude, "Your Conscience (skit) [Final Part]," D.O.M of DnD's conscience doesn't beat around the bushes this time and blatantly demands he stop caring about people who don't care for him. It's his final warning to get his priorities straight before shit goes down.


Landing on the sixteenth track, "Roll With You," this sweet-sounding and guitar-driven track blesses us with D.O.M of DnD's solo performance that opens the song with radiance and power. It's a feel-good track that sonically serenades us with a stunning sample alongside D.O.M of DnD's authoritative bars that prompts a smile. It's a lush and vibrant tune that should make its way to your playlist.


Reaching the final interlude of the album, "Epilogue (Interlude)," this 1-minute listening experience hits us with haunting and crisp production alongside D.O.M of DnD edgy bars that discuss some seriously intense themes. This track feels like an outburst of emotion that couldn't wait for the next album. It needed to be heard.


Hitting play on the album's final and outro track, "My Story," we end the project with some praise and love thrown toward D.O.M of DnD from fellow cypher-goers who simply can't compete his cut-throat stylings. TapDaddy's organ and drum-heavy production perfectly pave the way for D.O.M of DnD to spit his bars with composure and perfection, ending the record on a note of appreciation for his craft, the people who listen, and the people who helped him become the successful artist he is today.


When you're ready to sink your ears into an act whose sound and style know no bounds, we're happy to introduce you to D.O.M of DnD and his recent 18-track album, Please B Patient, I'll Die Soon, now available on all digital streaming platforms.



Welcome to BuzzMusic, D.O.M of DnD. Congratulations on releasing your jam-packed 18-track album, Please B Patient, I'll Die Soon. What inspired you to create this dynamic and personal project?


First of all, thanks again for having me on your site. With regards to what Please B Patient (that's the shortened version I address my album by) was influenced by, There were multiple facets that influenced me in creating this project ranging from just sheer boredom with being inside due to the pandemic to seeing how my friends were dealing with adulthood in the pandemic (eg, sticking to their job, family issues, university, etc.). But I think what pushed me over the edge to get me to create this project was being force-fed content on my social media feed of people either complaining at each other or talking about how much injustice there is in the world. Another influence behind this was that as a result of my rapping so often, I'd attracted people whom I felt were parasitic and had to be cut off. It was just until the beginning of 2022 that I began to have feelings of just being fed up with those kinds of people and those kinds of stories simply because they're in such large volume. "Kindness Is A Sin" and "The Perch" are good examples of this with lines such as "Can't help everyone. Why to bother help anyone...," or "When they tell you to do better, then they make you feel lesser. And when they tell you lesser, it makes you feel better."


What was your experience collaborating with the many artists and producers on Please B Patient, I'll Die Soon? Did you meet these artists from your weekly cyphers?


With regards to this project exclusively, the only artist that came directly from the Cyphers was October (https://www.instagram.com/octobergrowscolder/), who appears on "What If?," and we have collaborated before on his track "Speaking of Failures" (https://soundcloud.com/octobergrowscolder/speaking-of-failures-feat-dom-of-dnd-prod-drk), my song "Drop The Mic," (https://open.spotify.com/track/01ze8Mz5buFXCYp0Bk3XgY?si=e54aff24b98b4499), and a track from our supergroup Splinter Faction's song "Amor," which I produced (https://open.spotify.com/track/5ZBfquvL6SUsZxJtI5ZSNW?si=f914b461ed0d4b1f). Regarding the making of What If, this one went pretty smoothly, only going through 3-4 mixes before it was platform-ready and only dealing with small leveling issues. His line in this song, "Birds of a feather, they flock together, but the flock is wherever I'm not," resonated with me so well in the context of the song because it's such a good metaphor for never fitting in if we never rapped. Previous collaborations involving him have taken up about the same amount of mixes and time. In addition, producer "KC Stoner" (https://www.instagram.com/kayceebeats999/) was also one of the producers from the Cypher I work with regularly now as he liked the energy I brought in one of the Cyphers he produced for r/makinghiphop. The other artists I've collaborated with on this project I have come across because of Discord servers advertised on r/makinghiphop, mainly Immortal Being's Discord (now part of Nebula Productions) and Cosmicprank's Discord server.


Why did you want to add skits from your conscience in the album Please B Patient, I'll Die Soon? Why was it important for you to give listeners that perspective?


As I began to evolve as an artist in both how I carried myself online and in skill, I became acutely aware of both what my colleagues were saying about my growth music as well as people who inspired me with regards to my music, mainly from artists such as Rittz and Youtubers such as Indigo White. In addition, because of the praises from these kinds of figures, I eventually became scared that my ego would grow so big I'd become an insensitive asshole or another wannabe in the industry that is a one-hit-wonder. In a way, these skits I put down aren't just giving the listeners an embodiment of what impressions people have given me further explored in songs such as "My Story," but also a way of holding myself accountable to not be a prick. So the listeners know how I see my work as an artist evolve as they get used to listening to me. When you're starting out, you either start out thinking you're the shit or you ain't shit, and as you evolve, you either start getting full of yourself or you keep beating yourself up either because you're having a hard time fitting into the niches you listen to or you try to live up to unrealistic expectations set by others or yourself. From a sonic point of view, The skits provide a break between each segment of the album to process all the things I've said and allow the listeners to categorize which moods of songs go with which skits, as well as the sorts of content that would follow up.


How does Please B Patient, I'll Die Soon stand out from your previous albums? What's different about this project compared to the others?


Compared to my entire discography, Please B Patient is an album with a more implicit theme than the other two projects I view as my Magnum Opuses: The Simpleton's EP (https://open.spotify.com/album/6QNq5f8K0VjNuRE0l1hOWl?si=uONm6tj2RsWzH7cZuY-4VQ) and World D.O.Mination (https://open.spotify.com/album/0dAELhpE1jSvAmCAgts0zM?si=VBzgpzW3SaOMEVWOK5ZxNA). Content-wise, Please B Patient is more sporadic than The Simpleton's EP and World D.O.Mination because it makes such radical jumps between the moods I'd convey and is less coherent in terms of what kind of content each song covers. For example, The Simpleton's EP is an album where I dedicated each track to "accountants," I would watch (check UrbanDictionary for that definition). At the same time, World D.O.Mination has each song named after something related to war or conquest. However, Please B Patient specializes in more generalized moods in each song by analyzing what makes me nihilistic, what matters to me, and how I see myself in the future as an artist. In addition, Please B Patient is also a more sonically appealing project compared to my last few large accomplishments, as I've managed to make my mixing more polished in this project and became more aware of how to modulate my voice throughout a song, something World D.O.Mination lacks and the Simpleton's EP rarely uses.


What was your goal with Please B Patient, I'll Die Soon? What did you want your audience to experience or take away from this project?


Please B Patient is a compilation of sentiments I know people around me feel with the current state of things. I wanted this project to embody these feelings in a way that will always be present, regardless of where you are or when you're observing them. The main takeaway I'd like the audience to take is that although these sentiments were present, they can be used in a cathartic and productive manner rather than dwelling on them. Seeing people dwell all the time on the negative with no real solutions to their problems pushed me over the edge to do this project, so I wanted to give an antithesis to this attitude through this project people can observe. That being said, they should not take everything I say literally and recognize that the sentiments were authentic at the time this project was in fruition. Still, they don't reflect who I am as a person present because my feelings may change over time.
