If you’ve been following AHM for awhile, you’ll know I have mad love for the genre-bending David Morris aka D-WHY. The West Virginia native’s creativity blossoms through his music, videos, fashion and formula. Up to this point, the man has given away all his music for free, building a strong fan base while distributing quality. So here we are, on the release day of Young, Loved, Hated & Broke EP, and you can both purchase the project, or get it for free.
This week we have brand new visuals from D-WHY, who if you don’t know by now, you can find out here. This track is produced by Hit-Boy and is off his debut project Don’t Flatter Yourself, which you can download for free on the sidebar. Also, watch Meek Mill and Big Sean set some whips on fire as alligators watch in their collaborative banger. Last week, The Weeknd officially announced The Trilogy, whilst giving us visuals for “Rolling Stone.” Coldplay gets animated on their latest video, based on their Mylo Xyloto comic series.
David Morris, the West Virginia 24-year old goes by the name D-WHY. Residing in and around New York and Los Angeles, the man is making quite the name for himself. And while it sounded clever over Gambino’s “Freaks And Geeks,” it’s the best way to describe this multifaceted artist, “Jay-Z meets J. Christ meets Jay Leno meets J.Crew.”
D-WHY shows great artistic direction with his latest video. Co-directed with Jakob Owens. Watch out for his free tape, Don’t Flatter Yourself, dropping August 15.
Good afternoon and welcome to Monday. Stay fresh and excite your day with some new tunes.
A couple intricate remixes this week, one on a Frank Ocean track, the other Bon Iver. The posthumous Aaliyah project rumours have been put to rest. Domo and Alchemist dropped their joint venture.
