Review by: Justyn Brodsky & Dave Welsh
When NYC’s underground Hip Hop comes into play, real recognizes real. And when it comes to the Borough-based Hip Hop pioneer and Published Author Darick “DDS” Spears, we have a perfect role model to support this kind of insatiable recognition.
Charismatic, witty, and done with a very versatile NYC-scenic approach surrounding the song’s visualistic theme, the Official Music Video for DDS‘s popular single, “Paranoid”, gives you not only a very dynamic piano-oriented beat with an old school feel, but also a very catchy and authentic rhyming scheme. And when mixed together with the video’s documentary/indie style with the sites and scenes of the New York streets, we have a chemistry that showcases diligence, true talent, and the recognizable nature of being real, like stated before.
I must say, the song is great on its own and “Paranoid” is definitely a track that will entice you to check out DDS‘s catalogue, but I also strongly encourage to watch the video as well. It doesn’t have BMW’s, Twerking, or hundred dollar bills that this day & age of Hip Hop loves to overdose you with, and it isn’t needed. It’s refreshing, captivating, and best of all…REAL.
We at Artist Reach without reservation recommend DDS and you’ll be hearing and seeing a lot more of him on our platforms. In the meantime, give “Paranoid” a listen (and watch) and prepare to add him to your current list of 2017’s best discoveries (if you haven’t done so already).
