Pittsburgh, PA’s 21-year old Dali Darko releases his first mixtape, The Romantic Egotist. With complex word play and rhymes reflecting life experiences, Dali Darko spits like a seasoned emcee rather than a 21 year old on his first project.
The Romantic Egotist is packed full of jams. Menacing strings set the scene for Darko’s story telling flows on “Exodus,” which stands out as a highlight off the project. Production on tracks such as “Ace Boogie Theory” and “Immortals” allow Dark to experiment with futuristic flows, showcasing his full skill set- Drako begins rapping in tongues on the “Immortals,”which is as creepy as it sounds.
The Romantic Egotist is one of the one of the better debut mixtapes I’ve heard in a while. Be sure to check out Dali Darko’s debut, and let us know what you think.
