Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


Opening for hip-hop crew Dipset (aka Cam’ron, Juelz Santana, Jim Jones etc); at the University of Akron in Ohio, put the wheels in motion for Midwest sensation D-Tall. It was a major accomplishment for an 18 year old kid who recorded a song in his dorm room but college just wasn’t the ticket for this artist. In 2005 he packed his bags and made the long 17-hour haul to Dallas.

“The biggest risk is not to take one.” I stacked my paper up, prayed about it and just moved, just like that. I made the skip from from the midwest to the south. In 2005 I loaded up the car and drove 17 hours to Dallas alone. The only person I knew when I moved here was my grandfather. He passed away in 2007. After he passed it was me, myself and I. I was 19yrs old and at that point I could either sink or swim. It was hard at first but I chose to swim.”

With so many rappers and producers on the scene, one can get lost in the shuffle and easily put into competition with the next rapper from down the block. Its’ a lot of talent in all over the nation and in Dallas but Tall definitely feels he holds his own.

“I think I have my own lane in terms of the Dallas music scene. The music speaks for its self. I don’t make dance songs but I never knock the ones that do because music is music. The dance records go hard in the club. We have a lot of hot records in Dallas but not many hot albums. I want to be that Artist out of Dallas that you see on the Cypher on the BET Awards. When they do those cyphers, you see a Miami rapper like Ace Hood, you see a New York rapper like Juelz Santana, you see a Cali rapper like Tyga but you don’t see a Dallas rapper… yet. I can hold my own in that arena. Shout out to all the upcoming Artist, especially the Triple D Artists. Its’ a lot of talent in this city.”

All Offical Clique a.k.a AOC which is parallel to 50cent's g-unit and Cam'ron's Dipset is one of DTall’s latest projects with collaborating with the artist you may find Tall surrounded by on a daily basis. Tall has hosted mixtapes for DJ StevieDee out of Dallas, DJ J-Mas out of Michigan, DJ P-Know in Kansas and many more.

“I don’t just rap. I write, compose, make beats and I ghost write for other artists. Overall, I know its a lot that I don’t know. With that said, going forward I plan to continue to work hard, stay humble and stay pray'd up. Its only the beginning.”

In 2010, Tall took his grind to another level. His mixtape record "FLY FOR NO REASON" was featured on over 50 mixtapes nationwide. Opening up for Artist such as Dorrough, Webbie, SouljaBoy and DJ's like DJ Drama to name a few assisted in Tall gaining more exposure in several music markets. As a result, Tall began to get on the ticket for shows in Kansas, Oklahoma, Arizona, Michigan and of course Texas. During the 3rd quarter of the year Tall dropped the "ON MY WAY" mixtape which was eventually nominated for Mixtape of the Years honors for 2010 by Networkciti.com. The mixtape reached over 25,000 downloads the first 2 months. Look for Tall to become a house hold name in the industry among the rising stars.
