If It’s Up – [DarooBaby]

I recently wrote about NeedNoName and the evolving Houston rap scene that has been introducing many new faces into their newly re-energized underground scene that is planting the seeds to have a breakout year in 2022. One of my other favorite artists that I have stumbled upon from the area is the menacing DarooBaby who hasn’t released too much music at this point, but what he has released has been very memorable and already well received by both the Houston, and the greater underground communities. He recently unloaded another visual to his track “If It’s Up” as he has continued to favor instrumentals with a lot of DMV-flavor with the thumping percussion and simple but rousing piano loops. Daroo’s flow is very distinct and matter-of-fact, intimidating with each bar he drops through his southern drawl and wicked sense of humor. SiennaBurmes brought the visual to life and I hope Daroo continues to be consistent with his videos and I have little doubts that if he is able to be prolific with his music he will rise to prominence fairly quickly.
