Video: D-WHY – ‘Macchiato Music’

D-WHY

D-WHY grabs his passport and heads to Italy in the picturesque video for “Macchiato Music,” the first official single off his upcoming mixtape Don’t Flatter Yourself. The West Virginia University grad, who earned a spot on Rap-Up.com’s 10 Artists to Watch, shows off his sharp skills and style as he performs the T-Minus-produced song against the beautiful backdrop of Venice. The 23-year-old lyricist navigates the canals in a gondola and models his designer wardrobe in cafes and colorful alleyways. But shooting the Rex Arrow-directed clip wasn’t as glamorous as it looks.

“Savings accounts were emptied, frequent flier miles were used up, and nine days were spent adventuring throughout four countries,” explained D-WHY. “We slept on floors, got cursed at in foreign languages by hotel maids, spent the night in airports, dealt with border security, and of course, got crazy looks while shooting all of the videos completely guerilla-style with no permits or licenses.”

    @yourboycelebrity, how is he a poser…because he his a more of a city, suburban white rapper? Because he looks like a dude who just likes to rap, rather than a white guy dripped in diamonds and “swag” clothing which would actually make him more of a poser

    @nichelle, Well said. It’s as if people still feel that for someone to be able to rap and cleverly align words he/she has to come from the ghetto. Let’s not forget that over 95% of N.W.A.’s ‘Straight Outta Compton’ album sales came from white suburbia.

    This clown is from West Virginia. Inbreeding, coal mining and fiddle playing. Enough Said.

    Hip-Hop? Not in this lifetime.

    @VHROOM – i just spit out my coffee

    im not throwing shade for the sake of throwing shade, but he just doesnt seem authentic (& not just bc hes white).

    Negative- his accent bothers me the most- it seems so put on/fake.

    Positive – i liked the SATC line

    Way better and more original then MGK, Mac Miller, and Yelawolf.

    He’s creating his own lane. That’s hip-hop.

    D-Why is the epitome of buying your career. Average at best rapper who graduated from West Virginia has money, moves to new york, dresses like his rich old money ancestors, buys expensive production, spends large amounts on studio time and professional mixing, fly himself and at least one other person to venice, italy to shoot video.

    Come on people…dont fall for this stupid shit. This is a rich guy that wants to rap, all average like and shit.
