Is RiskTaker D-Boy The Next Up Out Of Detroit?

Published

on

It’s happening slowly, but Detroit’s presence in the music industry is being felt. Cash Kidd’s name rings all throughout the country. Molly Brazy has become a household name. Kash Doll, since getting out of her record label situation, has become one of the game’s hottest female rappers that refrains from hopping into beef. Now, the spotlight is on the city to produce more rappers. And we have tons – from AllStar JR, to Boss Mu, from Rondae, to Saucy E. Everyone’s working, hard too.

RiskTaker D-Boy is one of the artists that comes up in conversation about being the city’s next gigantic star. His flow is mesmerizing, subtle, and endearing. Passionate are his rhymes that often clash with the brisk production that he chooses. His style isn’t easily imitated, even if others try to replicate his success. With his videos being some of the most consistently high-viewed visuals on the 4ShoMag channel, is he truly the next out of the city?

On one hand, I believe so. He’s clearly got the it factor. That factor is seldom found in the city. There’s a certain amount of respect that one must garner from their listening base that causes it to grow. Many don’t have it; possibly, because they’re faking the funk. But D-Boy is respected, and makes good music. “Gone So Long” is the kind of hard-hitting, relatable jam that to make, one must be confident in their abilities. Its luxe sounds make it one of the best of his recent releases.

At the same time, maybe the image needs a little fine tuning. As he stands, he appears a little more mature than the younger audience that will perhaps consume his content the most. Rap doesn’t like old, and even though D-Boy may not be nearly as old as you think he is, there’s still a great deal that can be done to improve his image.

Regardless, the future will tell if there’s some new levels for RiskTaker D-Boy to reach. Check out his video for “Gone So Long” below.

O Racks, Rhoco Benjie & Zeeko Release “Im The Type”

Published

By

Following his collaboration with Pop Smoke affiliate Sosa Geek, O Racks (@TreeGang_racks) connects with Drake-producer Yozora for “I’m The Type.” Accompanied by Rhoco Benjie and Zeeko, the follow up to “We Made It” finds the New York native adopting a Detroit / LA influenced flow while boasting about his lavish lifestyle. The trio effortlessly trade bars over the bouncy beat setting the stage for the Tree Gang Entertainment CEO’s next release.

“In Hollywood everyone parties together. When you’re not an LA native you notice the locals taste in music. From what I witnessed, most people gravitate towards Cali and Detroit type beats because the energy makes it easy to dance to. So I told the producer to send me something in that lane. Soon as I heard it, the first verse just flew out – I’m the type of nigga start it up and air it out. The rest was history,” says O Racks when describing the song’s origins.

Born and raised in Hempstead, O Racks decided early in life he would pursue music professionally. Dedicated to the craft, O Racks began rapping and creating songs, even traveling outside of the tri-city area expanding his reach to Rhode Island, California, Atlanta, and Miami. With each release he acquired more fans and sharpened his skills, eventually catching the ear of Rich The Kid. The relationship spawned two records, “Prices” and “Look At Me, ” which received radio airplay soon after being released. Fast forward, he incorporated his independent music label Tree Gang Entertainment and took it to Hollywood.
