In a world of Hip-Hop oversaturated with trap beats and club bangers, it is a breath of fresh ocean air when we find a gem hidden amongst the rubble; a sound we may have forgotten existed in Hip-Hop. Enter Darnell Little from Camden, New Jersey, who proves his full understanding of the genre’s roots.
With this foundation, Little’s music is also described as experimental and unorthodox, heavily influenced by the trials and tribulations of his life. His delivery is laid back, soulful, and therefore powerful. Darnell was a nominee for the Most Likely to Succeed Award at the Camden Underground Music Awards. Hehas performed at SXSW and has been featured on key outlets "ThisIs50", WatchLOUD", YouHeardThatNew", "RapReviews" and more.
Ropeadope discovered Darnell on a random trip through Soundcloud, where he had taken some classics from Dilla and others and turned them to his own unique style. An idea was born - dig deep in the Ropeadope catalog and build something entirely new with full creative license. The result is Ropeadope:FLIPPED - 12 tracks of real experience intertwined with select tracks from the catalog. A return to old school values, with a fresh and informed new style.
