In the beginning the origins of Hip Hop music was used to teach and unite. In 2019 an artist returns with that intent.
On his fifth studio album, Def-I truly shows a reflection of all he is. A community activist who works consistently with the youth and organizations to better others. Def-I reached out to Southern California Hip Hop veteran producer Ariano & Washington States legend Smoke M2D6. The production is cinematic, moody and true to Def-I’s Boom BAP roots. Combining true lyrical craftsmanship with content that touches the heart, the album ‘Dream Trails’ is a reflection of many years on the road, and the travels embarked on by this is New Mexico Native MC .
The album features legends like Kool Keith, Abstract Rude, JFK Ninjaface, DJ Element, and a slew of talented artists and friends that add harmonies, vocals, hooks and live instrumentation.
Opening up about his personal battles and bringing light to the pain in the world , Def-I is not just a rapper. He is a true artist that bleeds his craft on two tracks that unite the young and the old.
This is not his beginning but far from the end….Dream Trails
