Chatterbox: DK

Hey, tell us a bit about yourself.

I’m DK, 22, Detroit, Michigan born, and Athens, Georgia raised. I fell into this deep depression and started going bald in college, so I figured it was a sign that maybe I should start doing something that I actually love. I thought the brain surgery and coma at age 16 would teach me the same thing, but it took me some time to apply the lessons. Now I’m here making music still learning just like you.

Where did the new single come from?

Well I was making a lot of progress with my music. I was performing, connecting with more people, getting more time in the studio, but something still felt like it was missing. I still felt really insecure and learned that no amount of praise could validate me or convince me to have self esteem. I really had to address my demons while people were still putting me on a pedestal, which is difficult when you’re so used to being lost in the sauce.

Is there more content in the pipeline?

I try to stay consistent with content. Whether it’s sharing videos of me rapping, going live to freestyle, or sharing what music I’ve been listening to, I always try to keep pushing and challenging myself. I have other tracks as well, and Lost In The Sauce seems to be the crowd favorite so far.

What’s on the horizon for you?

I have my first show in Atlanta on the 17th at the Mammal Gallery. I’m really excited about that. The 5 year anniversary of my brain surgery is coming up as well, and I’d like to make that day special. Trying to take this time to connect with more people that I can create with because I quickly realized that I can not do this alone. I’m enjoying the journey though.
