The Break Presents: D-Why

Standout: “Shooter McGavin”

Also Check Out: “Macchiato Music”

And: “We Don’t Know”

Name: D-WHY

Age: 24

Reppin’: West Virginia, but I’m currently based in NYC and Los Angeles.

My style and/or skills have been compared to: Jay-Z meets J. Christ meets Jay Leno meets J.Crew.

My standout records and/or moments have been: The Venice, Italy-set music video for my song “Macchiato Music,” which was produced by T-Minus; the video for “Shooter McGavin” (my remix to Childish Gambino’s “Freak’s & Geeks”); and my take on indie rock songs such as Local Natives’ “Wide Eyes,” which I retitled “Own Eyes.” I hope to eclipse all of those with the material I have coming up.

I’m gonna change the game by: Doing what feels right, being myself and letting the music, visuals and content speak for itself.

I’d Like to Work With: T-Bone Burnett, Rick Rubin, Danger Mouse, George Martin, Youth Lagoon, Ariel Rechstaid, Hit-Boy, Dot Da Genius, T-Minus and D.Mile were on this list, but I’ve worked with them all recently…. They’re all ridiculously talented.

My goal in hip-hop is: To never think within the lines of hip-hop, or any genre for that matter, when making music. Creative expression should never be limited by labels.

I’m gonna be the next: Person to order at this Starbucks I’m in right now.
