Born in Brooklyn, but raised in the DMV area, Daimo has emerged as one of hip-hop’s most authentic underground voices. After surviving the streets and a life spent in and out of prison since the age of fifteen, Daimo emerged with a new sense of drive, determined to change his life and spread his creative message.
The latest step in his newly founded legacy, Daimo has unleashed a visceral and unyielding new album in the form of ‘Freebando’. A fifteen-track epic that combines old school beats and hard-hitting lyrics that reflect Daimo’s chequered past, ‘Freebando’ is an essential underground release that doesn’t just break the mould, it obliterates it.
Opening cut ‘Different’ sets a rough melodic tone, carving an auto-tuned path through flickering beats and a rampant tempo that ebbs and flows with a calculated sense of style. It’s a powerful illustrative piece that defines Daimo’s style, offering sharp elements of contemporary rap and dark RnB that shines with both a universal and personal appeal.
Highlights abound in the likes of ‘Way Ahead’, ‘Bobby’, ‘3am’ and the fiery ‘Lifestyle’, adding deft collaborations and sharp witticisms to an unforgettable hip-hop dynamic. An impressive and authentic release from one of rap’s most intriguing new talents, ‘Freebando’ is essential new listening for all rap fans.
