“My album will be filled with dope collaborations with other artists, well-crafted lyrics and a big focus on strong hooks. The songs contain a mixture of personal and social themes – and of course some great party tunes!” promises Dapz of his forthcoming album due for release on Spinnup in the beginning of 2014.
Voted MC of the Year by Metropol radio in 2008, Dapz first started writing and rapping at the age of 14. Initially appearing on several mixtapes, he has worked with a number of hip-hop names and released a string of demos and singles: “Table Scraps”, “Go Blaow” which achieved international radio airplay, “Two Steps” and “ASAP”.
Dapz first came to the attention of Swedish hip-hop magazine, Kingsize, in 2009 when he performed on the remix of rap group Medina’s “Hip Patriot”. On the track “U Know What” Dapz was joined by American rap artist, Copywrite, and the recording was subsequently released on “The Vendor” EP.
“My songs are inspired by live events, people and emotions, and there’s often an ironic twist to the lyrics,” explains Dapz.
Aside from being active in the Swedish hip-hop scene, Dapz isn’t averse to trying something new. In 2012 he was invited to perform with hardcore punk group Hang ‘em High on five tracks, which were released on the EP “RESPECT”. Now he’s back again with his new EP “The Writer’s Guild” featuring Izza Kizza (signed to Timbaland’s Mosley Music Group) on one of the tracks.
Check out “The Writer’s Guild”, distributed by Spinnup on all major digital channels, and get ready to party with Dapz this summer!
