D Strong started rhyming in the late eighties during the early days of the Golden Era. At first, it was just for the thrill of the battle over high school lunch table drums, then it became more, writing songs coming up with hooks and actually recording in the studio. D Strong found an outlet for music through a local radio station KDAY and their performing arts program. He did shows at local parks and rec centres throughout L.A. and it helped him become familiar with stage presence and vocal delivery.
As the years went on and the music changed he never forgot where it started and has tried to stick to the same format that has always felt comfortable…you know that raw lyrical shit!! D Strong is one-fifth of the underground crew The Last Kind and a founding member and is also a member of the triple threat emcee group Third Rail (D Strong, Aarophat, Wildelux). With the introduction of the internet to the industry, his dream of having his music heard by the world has become a reality.
Working with producers from all over the globe and has built a catalogue of over 3 albums worth of material as well as a groundbreaking EP “Get off the Playground” a collaboration with Rap Legend Prince Po of the highly acclaimed underground group Organized Konfusion. Also, the D Strong linked up with well-known producer Macapella for two full projects, “The Burden”, and “Sacrifice”. The release of D Strong and Dave Sparkz “Unfold” through Bandcamp produced some stark symmetries of life in an incredibly well put together project. This summer D has confirmed dates through September. With a new album in the works and more features to come with some of the game's newest and brightest stars, D-Strong is on the road to greatness.
