D. Brooks is a producer/beatmaker whose work with West Side rapper Dreezy on her first mixtape Schizo helped launch her career (she’s now signed to Interscope and has since done songs with Gucci Mane and Kodak Black); his work with Baton rouge rapper NBA YoungBoy last year on single “Untouchable” has more than 100 million streams on YouTube with zero radio play, an incredible level of popularity for an underground record. It was recently awarded a platinum certification.
D. Brooks’ strength is to convey an emotional resonance that feels that much more genuine, that much more heartfelt, than the work of the next producer. Lately, he’s been working with the talented Englewood rapper KD Young Cocky; the two collaborated on one of David’s favorite songs last year, “Slippin.” The two are working on an upcoming project called Squad Goals, and this mix features some unreleased, exclusive tracks from the duo.
