Toine wants to break away from his current financial status, his place as an underground—and somewhat unheralded—rapper, and the D.C. region for a little while. He's made some noise, though: In 2011, Toine turned in a notable performance on Oddisee's song, "Different Now." More recently, he offered a dope verse to Sean Born and Dunc's impressive [...]
It's been a while since DTMD dropped new music. Released in 2011, the duo's impressive debut, Makin' Dollas, was a clear-headed tribute to dream chasing, even if rapper Toine and producer Dunc were still trying to forge a creative path. These days, the collaborators are working on their own solo projects: Dunc is finishing an instrumental album, and [...]
Dunc has a busy year ahead. DTMD, his duo with rapper Toine, plans to drop a three-track EP called 3 & Out in the next few weeks. Later this year, DTMD will release a full-length album, Reset, which Dunc says is completely different from the group's 2011 debut, Makin' Dollas.
Not only that, Dunc is finishing his own instrumental [...]
Logic, On and On
"Bitches they only care 'bout the flow," raps Def Jam MC Logic during the chorus of the harp-accented "Two Kings," a new track featuring Cleveland's King Chip up on Soundcloud. And, really, the song is more about flow than anything else; the only linguistically noteworthy moment might be his use of culero [...]
In January, Prince George's County MC Sean Born dropped one of the best albums I've heard this year, Behind the Scale, which combined Born's gritty tales of struggle with dusty, '90s-style boom bap, courtesy of producers Kev Brown, Dunc, and Oddisee.
Released today, Born's "12/12" is a lively posse cut featuring Low Budget crew member Kaimbr and [...]
You might know very little about Sean Born, a gruff, gravel-voiced MC from Prince George's County, Md., whose forthcoming album, Behind the Scale, is a cinematic journey through the small Queen Anne town in which he grew up. Born tells of his struggle over booming beats from Kev Brown, Dunc, and Oddisee, and others.
Born's impressive mixtape, 909 Jack BTS Pause [...]
The Flame (Def Dee Remix) by DTMD
While you were sorting out your feelings about Wale this morning, P.G. County's DTMD was releasing this thumped-up remix of the first chunk of "The Flame," the track that wraps up its nifty DTMD: Makin' Dollas album. The original is all huggy synths and hopefulness; the remix by Seattle's [...]
Looking at DTMD, you wouldn't think they were a hip-hop duo, much less one of the promising young rap groups in the D.C. region.
Dunc is a scrawny white kid, but his thumping beats show an affinity for '60s classic soul and the '90s percussive boom bap. Toine, whom we last heard trading bars with Oddisee [...]
