West Virginia raised rapper/musician D-WHY is back and ready to impress once again with his newest project, Young, Loved, Hated & Broke. Amazing title, by the way. The EP is set to be released November 4, 2013. If you’ve never heard of D-WHY, check ou some of his DOPE videos to past hits here and here. Below, check out the trailer for the YLHB EP, and D-WHY’s answers to the fans’ questions about the new project.
How many songs will it be?
The EP will consist of 7 or 8 songs. I consider it an EP because it is just a taste of what is to come, and when I put out a full-length album (sometime next year) it will be on a whole other level.
Where will it be available?
We are planning to make it available for purchase on iTunes, but it will definitely also be available for free download here at TheCleanestCorner.com. It’s important to me that the music reaches as many people as possible, so I want those that don’t have the money (or don’t want to spend it) to have the opportunity to obtain and share the music. However, I’ve received an overwhelming amount of feedback from my fans that they can’t wait until I have music on iTunes, because they WANT to support. And that, my friends, means the world to me. If it goes on iTunes as planned, it will be the cheapest that iTunes allows it to be for the amount of tracks.
Do you have any goals for the EP?
What do you think, can we crack the Top 10 on the iTunes Rap/Hip-Hop Chart? Overall, I just want the people to listen to it, enjoy it and share it with their friends.
What will the sound of the EP be like?
The sound of the EP will be similar in concept to the sound of my last project, ‘Dont Flatter Yourself’: very ecclectic and diverse, but still wholly me. Although I have a clear vision of where I want to take the sound of future projects (and I have countless tracks already recorded and/or written for them), I want people to discover and appreciate my diversity and versatility. I wanted to supply something for everyone on the EP, but at the same time make it so the songs all make sense together. ‘Young, Loved, Hated & Broke’ should be looked at as a continuation of ‘D.F.Y.,’ rather than being compared to it.
Can we expect more songs and videos from the EP leading up to its release?
Right now, we’re putting the finishing touches on the “One Day” video, so hopefully you’ll have that next week for #DWHYwednesday. After that, expect at least two more songs and one more video from the EP before November 4.
