"D. MAWL IS EMBRACED BY ATLANTA MEDIA AND LEAVES A LASTING IMPRESSIONS WITH NEW FANS"

The Louisville Artist, Who Has Been Featured on BET’s Rap City and the Russ Parr Morning Show, Is Making Noise With His Raw, Profanity-free Talent

Louisville, KY – September 3, 2008 – D. Mawl is beginning to blaze the airwaves with his single “Keep It Hip Hop” from his “The Lost 16” album. The artist, who was chosen as KFC’s 360 Pride Hitmaker, drops harsh life reality over feel good music that makes his listeners sway side to side and rethink common situations, as well. D. Mawl is standing up for hip hop and denouncing the “flip flop” that today’s rap glorifies: money, murder, cars and loose women, among many others. D. Mawl was recently featured on BET’s Rap City for his lyrical commitment to family, pride and the community; and killed the freestyle with host Q45 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lsHlr_IoxFE). He has performed with some of music’s top acts including Doug E. Fresh, The Nappy Roots, MC Lyte and newcomer, Chrisette Michelle. Download the single “Keep It Hip Hop” for free at http://www.soullinq.com/dmawl/files/mp3s/Dmawl - Keep It Hip Hop.mp3.
For more information on D. Mawl and his music, visit www.dmawl.com.

“Keep It Hip Hop”, like most of D. Mawl’s music, intertwines roots rhymes with a soulful track. D. Mawl, a native of Cincinnati and Louisville resident, is focused on creating a new era of hip hop derived from the legacy of legends like The Sugarhill Gang, Public Enemy, Tupac, Nas and others who’ve heavily impacted the industry. “There are a lot of rappers on the scene, but what we lack are true hip hop artists who understand the essence of our being. And we are more than “money, hoes and clothes”. We are presidential nominees, mothers, fathers and teachers,” says D. Mawl. Hip hop is a culture and when mixed with soul music, it becomes the essence of our community. “The Lost 16” album is available on iTunes, CD Baby, Rhapsody, Napster, Payplay Tradebit and Ruckus.

"D. MAWL RELEASES “THE GREAT ELECTION”,"

The Hip Hop Soul Artist Drops Political Rhymes Over Two of Today’s Most Popular Hip Hop and R &B Songs

D. Mawl is making moves throughout the country and is targeting international recognition as well. The Cincinnati native’s music is developing a fan base of popular DJs, radio host and music critics. DJs in various areas have been requesting tracks from D. Mawl to add to their mixshows and rotations on-air, as well as, parties, clubs and other social settings. In addition, he has been interviewed by various outlets, with more requests forthcoming. As an active member of social networking sites like Soul Commune, Myspace, Imeem, StreetCred, and XXL Block,
D. Mawl is aiming to increase his fan base and introduce his music to those across the globe.

While D. Mawl’s musical style isn’t what’s regularly played on radio, it is appreciated by those within the industry. There are some stations that love hip hop, but don’t regularly spin it because of the content. “Hip hop lovers who once abandoned the art form because of junk lyrics can now embrace the music again. We are hip hop heads, but not able to include a lot of it in our rotation because of lyrics. We are thankful for D. Mawl’s platform,” says Lisa Birch of Vertical Fix Radio. As a husband and father of three young children, he wants his family to be heavily involved in his musical dream of bringing the true essence of hip hop back to the mainstream. Therefore, D. Mawl aims to make music with good messages and eliminates the use of vulgar language.

"HIP HOP SOUL ARTIST D. MAWL “KEEPS IT HIP HOP”"

The Louisville Artist, Who Has Been Featured on BET’s Rap City and the Russ Parr Morning Show, Is Making Noise With His Raw, Profanity-free Talent

D. Mawl can be added to the ranks of many artists who have used their talents in support of Illinois Senator Barack Obama. With hip hop and urban communities on fire about the current election, it was only natural for the Louisville lyricist to contribute to this evolutionary time. The urban youth have registered to vote in record numbers this year and those who influence them most have been critical encouragers of their participation. “I am so excited about the energy of our hip hop generation and very proud of the attention and time they are placing on this election. I am a strong Barack Obama supporter and want to see this brother prove his doubters wrong,” says D. Mawl. He is hopeful that this song and video will create more spark in this last week before the big election day and motivate some to vote early.

Who is DMawl?
Dee Muldrow AKA "D. Mawl" was raised in Cincinnati, OH, at the end of the era of good, politically motivated music. Raised in the "Hip-Hop Generation," Dee was influenced by Rakim, Nas, Common, Hi-Tek, Marvin Gaye, D'Angelo, Earth Wind and Fire and the artists who, like himself, consider themselves rebels with important causes.

DMawl is known regionally for his on-edge lyrics laced with folk sentiment; he is the common man's champion, using his voice as a reflection of our current economic system and its creation of the American Ghetto. Dee shows this warrior spirit in songs like "Our Story," from his upcoming album.

"Muzik Gone Wild"

“MuZik Gone WilD”


For immediate release:

In February of this year, independent hip hop artist D.Mawl received national attention for his debut single “All Over the Place” a tune that praised the talents, inventions, and contributions by African Americans that reach every American household daily.

D.Mawl continues the grind with another attention grabbing single entitled “MuZik Gone WilD”. After former nationally syndicated talk show host Don Imus was scrutinized for referring to a group of African American women as “Nappy Head Hoes” many turned to mainstream hip hop music and the degrading lyrical content which often glorifies and endorses the use of such terminology.

While other artists and industry insiders may fight the scrutiny in defense for the hip hop culture, D.Mawl in “MuZik Gone WilD” boldly expresses his views on the current lyrical content of hip hop music. In this radio friendly, club banger, D.Mawl exposes the dirty laundry of platinum recording artists by referencing their own degrading lyrics.

“MuZik Gone WilD” captivates hip hop fans and artists alike while challenging listeners to become more conscious of the messages being aired on mainstream radio and television. D.Mawl’s no holds bar attitude toward addressing the issues in hip hop and creatively still appealing to the masses will absolutely gain and keep your attention during his “Eternal Grind”.

"Eternal Grind"

“D.Mawl Keeps Hip Hop Music Alive”


The Midwest independent Hip Hop Soul artist D.Mawl continues to show through his own work that hip hop music is alive and well. With his sophomore release entitled “Eternal Grind”, D.Mawl challenges those he refers to as “cookie cutter want to be rap stars” to step their game up by producing positive, conscience, soulful music. “Eternal Grind” is ruthless as DMAWL voices his personal feelings of the typical “rap crap” that is currently being played on mainstream radio across the country.

Listeners say what they love most about D.Mawl's “Eternal Grind” is he invites you into his soul with songs like “Rather Be Broke”and “Rolling on Fumes.” They describe him as very creative and grabs your attention with tracks like “I’m A Hater”. Eternal Grind concludes with a sneak preview of his up and coming album which is scheduled for release late summer 2007. The response from this preview confirms it is only a matter of time for the world to hear and feel this fresh new artist who is bringing positive conscience music back to mainstream hip hop culture. To say D.Mawl is a breath of fresh air is an understatement. For many, D.MAWL is more like a breath of life. Life mainstream hip hop as an industry and culture has not seen in years.
