Bio

Visit any club in the DFW area spinning Hip-Hop music and what you will find is sheer redundancy, lazy one line hooks, and patrons requesting anything danceable. Dj’s around the world are looking to break the next big Rap artist, like never before, mostly in an effort to resuscitate life back into a dying industry that has become a victim of it’s own undoing.
One listen to “It’s Nothin” (current single burning up the clubs) and one would almost assume that change is apparent and imminent. A seasoned veteran in the game of Hip-Hop, both well versed and traveled, Darko is an O.G. of sorts in this fickle industry.
Darko is the former lead MC from the underground super group Black Souls ENT from New Orleans. Poised for an industry invasion, BSE was in the process of negotiating a deal with Jive Records after scanning over 16,000 units, when then CEO Mystikal took his career to No-Limit records. For the next few years, Darko would go into complete seclusion. Vowing to never rap again, and left with a bitter taste in his mouth courtesy of the industry, Darko would begin working odd jobs and hustling just to eat from that point on.
Just as life started to come together, and music was forgotten, along came hurricane Katrina. All of Darko’s memories, life long home, and everything he owned, like so many other New Orleans evacuees, gone. Wading in waste high water for safety was amid a nightmare, but Darko vowed to re-enter the rap world and truly seize his opportunity to reclaim greatness on the microphone.
By blending a mixture of down south attitude and East Coast lyrical abilities, Darko has conceived a winning formula for success in song writing. Dubbed by Chris Luva, Luva, aka Ludacris, as “ one Lyrical muf**a”, Darko is battle tested and has opened shows for many of today's top artists, such as, Too Short, Junior Mafia, Scarface, D.J. Quick, and the late Tupac Shakur.
