D. Black

Biography

D. Dark, aka Damian Dark, was born right into a family of past due-’70s/early-’80s hip-hoppers. His parents were members from the Emerald Road Boys as well as the Emerald Road Ladies, respectively, who are locally named being Seattle’s 1st hip-hop groups. Elevated in South Seattle, Dark 1st passed the stage name Risk when he started documenting rhymes in his preteens. When Dark was about 13 yrs . old, Seattle DJ/maker and regional mainstay Supplement D relocated his studio room into his stepfather’s cellar, which presented Dark the opportunity to build up skills in creation. A few of Black’s 1st official releases had been produced beneath the Seattle veteran’s tutelage. In 2004 when he was just 18 yrs . old, Dark was called CEO of Sportn’ Existence Information by his stepfather. As he constructed the label’s roster, Dark established his status in the town with well-known underground mixtapes and singles, such as for example “You will need a Thug” as well as the Jake One-produced “THAT IS Why.” His hardcore posturing and visual portrayals of his upbringing certainly stood out, since Seattle’s developing hip-hop picture was heavily aimed toward alternate rhymesayers like Blue Scholars and Gabriel Teodros. Still in his past due teens, Dark solidified his group of fans with his extremely popular debut album, THE REASON & Impact (2006), which boasted creation from Seattle’s best beatmakers: Jake One, BeanOne, and, needless to say, Vitamin D.
