D. Yelv (@OTComeUp) ‘Carmelo’

D. Yelv 'Carmelo'

Baltimore emcee D. Yelv drops his first single ‘Carmelo‘ off his debut project Preconceived Notions, which is set to drop mid January 2014.

The DMV artist strays from the typical trap flows and dark undertones typically found among Baltimore area rappers, yet sustains a witty sense of wordplay taking his listeners through a tour of his hometown.

The track gives a glimpse of street realities depicted through NBA superstar/West Baltimore native, Carmelo Anthony. D. Yelv visits the state of crime and rising murder rate in the city, relating them to the stop snitching DVD Anthony was heavily chastised for participating in, in 2006. With comparisons to J. Cole, Mos Def and recently opening for notable artists such as Maino, Freeway, and King Los, D. Yelv is definitely an artist to look out for in the immediate future.
