[Interview] D.O. aka Defy the Odds talks “Heavy In The Game,” meeting Kid Cudi, and his small-town upbringing
Interview by: Martin Bauman If you've been checking The Come Up Show regularly, you'll know that we covered D.O.'s Fresh Fridays series leading up to the release of his latest album, Heavy In The Game. You may have heard his album, but chances are you haven't gotten to know the man behind the music. D.O. aka Defy the Odds has been steadily making a name for himself for the past ten years, along the way earning the Guinness World Record for longest freestyle (8 hours and 45 minutes, since broken by Chiddy of Chiddy Bang), influencing thousands of people through his Stay Driven motivational speaking tours, and touring the world, both as a solo act and as one half of Art of Fresh. I recently caught up with D.O. to talk about his album, growing up in a small town, his encounter with Kid Cudi in LA, and much more. Hit the skip to check out the full interview.
