D-Aye is back with his debut EP, “Defeated Da Odds.”
Montgomery, AL rapper D-Aye has defeated the odds, literally. From past incarcerations throughout his adolescence in Montgomery, the rapper now has his eyes set on the future. Releasing his major label debut, â€œDefeated Da Oddsâ€ on Reckless Republic/Island Records, D-Aye is on the right path to be considered an artist to watch out for going into 2021.
D-Aye made an immediate impact upon the release of â€œHunnids,â€ which was produced by Zaytoven. Support for that single was received by outlets like Power 106, Dash Radio, Traps N Trunks and various other outlets. During his interview with DJ Carisma for â€œCheccâ€™d Inâ€ on Power 106â€™s morning show, Zaytoven shared that he loved working with D-Aye because â€œan artist like D-Aye knows how to rap over a Zay beat.â€
The impact single for this EP, â€œBullets Flying,â€ is produced by KashWantDa$wang and Cassius Jay (credits: Cardi B, Migos, Young Thug), and showcases D-Ayeâ€™s melodic cadence that got him recognized by Reckless Republic/Island Records. D-Aye switches up between rapping and singing with ease, and his versatility is clearly evident. Fearlessness is one word that accurately describes â€œBullets Flyingâ€ which is what D-Aye is.
When speaking about the project, D-Aye says, â€œBeing from Montgomery makes me feel great about the project because you donâ€™t usually see an artist coming outta Montgomery signing to a major. The city is fully behind me because they saw the groundwork that was put in over the years, and they know the story is authentic.â€
Spanning six tracks in length, this was the perfect introduction for D-Aye to a now wider audience. Stay tuned for some visuals to release as we close out the fourth quarter of an interesting 2020.
