After a very successful videography career, directing and editing for acts such as Macklemore, Big Sean and Mac Miller, Darnell Williams is eager to give the camera a break and show off his artistic talents behind the mic. Going under the name D.W. he has released his first promo showing off a bit of what he has in store.
He’s got an old school style with some new tricks, like cutting in the middle of a video to some seedy home footage of ass clapping. It’s a weird divergence but works really well, bringing to mind sampling old audio clips from movies but in a more visceral (and creepy) way.
Short but sweet, D.W. teases the Detroit hip hop community with this warning of his impending arrival on the scene.
