A legendary lyrical adventure

About Dizzy

Two things that have made a huge, huge difference in my life are tabletop gaming and music. Now, as an adult, I've married the two together to create a wholly unique experience - this is real hip-hop music, replete with all the technical prowess and bombastic imagery you'd expect, but with a focus squarely on fantasy narratives. This is storytelling in the 21st century. This is my life, my love, fifteen years of gaming distilled into every musical experience.

This is D&D Rap

I grew up black and "gifted" in an area where there weren't a lot of other people like me. We'll go with "a lot of the other kids' parents didn't like me and I didn't know why" - you get it.

In any case, I ended up falling in love with reading and eventually writing, and drawing, and making music, and an awful lot of other forms of art. But what united all the things I love was the idea of other worlds.Adventures, fantasy, magic, you know the deal. I LOVED sitting down and jumping into another reality for a while, so when I eventually found D&D you can imagine how hard I fell into that. And now, almost twenty years later (almost), I'm still playing and still DM-ing and I'm more obsessed with storytelling than ever before.

But one little skill I've picked up between then and now is rapping. Without getting quite as far into it, rap and hip-hop were also a big part of my life starting in my teenage years, and in fact I can directly credit rapping to my freelance career in digital marketing. Rap was something I was good at, and it made me want to do it more, do it bigger and better - the whole genre is essentially a competition, any given rapper is trying to show off and be better than the rest, so finding that I COULD be good at it made me WANT to be good at it. And eventually, that path of improvement leads you to looking for ways to be different, explore techniques and rhymes and subject matters no one else has.

And now here I am.

About The Bard Chronicles

Right now, I'm gearing up to put out my first major release, and honestly it's so exciting I don't even know what to say. Couple years in the making, couldn't have possibly done it without my Kickstarter backers standing by me, it was a long fight but we won it.

Thanks, Heroes.
