The man goes by the name of D-Mart.
I have known D-Mart for years. We played AAU basketball together when we were kids and played against each other in high school (Broadmoor ALWAYS got the W against Belaire). I never thought he was too fond of me so years removed from high school, I was a bit shocked to hear from him. D-Mart told me he was getting into rapping. Of course I did not take him seriously. I just thought it my might just be a phase or maybe the BR in him because we know EVERYBODY in the city wants to be a rapper. I even have a few rap songs (shhhh don't tell anybody). D-Mart made me take him serious though.
Rapping was always a secret passion of D-Mart's and he was finally pursuing what he felt was something destined for him to do. He begin to send me music and I could definitely see some talent there but of course for a new artist, there was some work he had to do. Fast forward a year later and the Baton Rouge MC is better than ever. I can honestly say he gets better with every new track he sends me. His lyrics, the way he rides a beat, the way he sounds on a track today is all better than when I first heard his music. D-Mart is putting the work to improve with every release so the sky is the limit for the kid.
