Born and bred in Chicago, emcee Darius Dolly’s less than stellar circumstances led him to move to Las Vegas with his family in his teen years. When he realized his passion for music, he was able to curate his dreams into reality. He began dropping mixtape after mixtape and is currently working towards becoming the hip-hop legend of Sin City. Dolly is definitely the future of the new rap culture in the state of Nevada.
We had the pleasure of checking out this track “Don’t Get In My Way” and we can’t get enough of Dolly’s sound. The track expertly weaves through elements of powerful hip-hop verses. Dolly exudes undeniable confidence and authentic grit throughout the entire track. Being able to put pen to paper and create emotive and powerful lyrics then match those lyrics to a catchy beat AND make it alluring and connection seeking for the listener is a true talent! Dolly showcases his skills as an admirable, talented and spectacular hip-hop artist. He consistently proves he belongs at the top. Dolly remains modest but he has big things coming! I highly recommend you check out “Don’t Get In My Way” and the rest of his impressive repertoire.
