“No doubt in my mind – the absolute best quality about DANK D is his passion for the music he creates. He doesn’t have a lot of high tech equipment or crazy effects – he doesn’t need them. Hip Hop is what DANK D would be doing if he had 1 dollar in his pocket or 100 million. For him, it starts with creating music and ends with rocking a live show.” - Marc Cheatham – The Cheats Movement

“It’s no secret that Sounds of RVA holds DANK D in the highest esteem. And who can help it? D’s been releasing bad joints left and right…” - Sarah Moore - Sounds Of RVA

“DANK D is dope because he brings hip hop back to the essence of an emcee carrying his shows by giving a quality performance. He also has a sense of lyricism that floats like clouds of smoke over a lot of the weighed down and over-materialized subject matter of a lot of today’s hip hop artists. A quality addition to the RVA and DMV hip hop scene.”
- Mike Kemetic - Audio Mass Transit

“Listening to DANK D rhyme is like watching a hot knife cut through butter. It’s just that smooth. This cat looks like he might be able to raise the underground hip hop scene in RVA to a whole new level on his own. Everyone else better bring their A game if they plan to keep up.” - Aaditya Ajmani - Husky Pants Productions

DANK D is a hip hop artist based in Richmond, VA. Also known as Dan.K Diesel, DANK D planted the seed of his music career in Athens, Ohio, where he dropped beats and rhymes in and around Ohio University’s campus. DANK D rapidly rose to the top of the party scene, exposing his listeners to something they weren’t quite used to hearing: infectious beats infused with jazz melodies and a unique style of poetic rhyming. DANK D has now moved back to his home state of Virginia, where he will continue to master his craft in RVA. He is always striving to push himself and his captivating live performances to new heights, thrilling his audiences with his ability to bend minds with rhymes.
