I got this mixtape by Darren a few weeks ago and just got around to listening to it and I am impressed. For those who don’t know, Darren is from the DMV and is only 17 years old, think of the future this kid has in front of him! His wordplay and style are evolved beyond his years and you can only imagine him getting better as he gets older. He still has room to grow and to refine his style and sound by switching up his flow and and tone more often and further evolving his writing and content. I still would be interested in hearing some album tracks because I see a lot of potential in him. Click the break for more info and the download link and tracklist.

The mixtape also features some of his DMV counterparts for guest appearances like Chris Barz, Marky, Mouse aka the Waldorf Posterboy, Infinity and more. Darren also produced a large majority of the songs for this mixtape and I have to say the artwork is dope too. “Is It You?” was one of my favorite tracks on the tape and “Long & Prolific” shows his ability to kill the mic. He is similar to a lot of the new school cats in the sense that he is on the synth heavy, talking about spaceships backpacker image haha. I also really liked the Pink Floyd inspired title and enjoy the new school incorporating more genres into hip-hop. See the download and tracklist below.
