Still working on that hot first release.



D. Di’Yari is a rap emcee hailing from Newburgh, New York. Surrounded by the influence of hip hop and gaining inspiration from his up bringing, Di’Yari does not believe in only sending a message to his listeners, but also influencing them with an attitude to, “make do with less”. This bold attitude is a direct reflection of the struggles Di’Yari faced growing up in Newburgh, New York.

Raised by a hard working single mother and as an only child, Di’Yari had ample time on his hands to explore his surroundings and inevitably would get caught up in the street life.  With all the negatives in his life, Di’Yari tried take the path less traveled in his community and continue his education at college but, unfortunately, he fell short and was kicked out of school. However, this did not distract Di’Yari of his dreams of becoming a successful artist. He turned to street life for the money to enable him to invest into his future ventures which included a clothing store and his ever evolving rap career. At this time Di’Yari was able to gain respect from his community and create the foundation he needed to stand on to build his rap career.

While benefiting greatly from these perks Di’Yari was able to open a clothing store and jump start his rap career but it was the pitfalls that nearly took his life. Caught in the middle of a viscous shooting incident, Di’Yari suffered extreme injuries that would leave him immobile in a hospital bed and facing months of rehabilitation to walk again. The struggle to get back onto his feet, both metaphorically and physically, was a long and lesson filled journey. During this time, Di’Yari made a promise to himself to turn his life around and to follow through with all of his life ambitions with no hesitation. His tenacious attitude to do better for himself is what really drives Di’Yari to pursue his dreams of being not only an emcee but, a clothing designer and an artist. The hostile, naive, boy that bought the Reasonable Doubt album by Jay-Z because he fell in love with the story of the hustler's ambition, is now the level headed, introspective man we see today,  who is creating that nostalgic feeling to trail blaze his way onto the music scene.
