Since giving the world Timbaland, Pharrell Williams and Clipse in the late nineties/early 2000s, the Virginia Beach/Norfolk area hasn't really been a hotbed for hip hop talent. Well allow DP, a 20-year-old newcomer from the area, to change that. Listen to "Glass Casket" from his upcoming mixtape Designer Casket below.
Now endorsed by Pusha T himself, DP's "Glass Casket" is a slice of eerie hip hop produced by Sir Yogaflame. Delivering lyrics in a stoic monotone, DP paints a vivid picture of his life, rapping: "no watch on my right hand, keep a glock on my nightstand."
Mind stay structured, crooked like you need braces
Bruh, I need a mil to forget the ridicule and anguish
I move with criminals whose patience is minimal
With more time than money, so there really ain't shit to lose
