Tyrese Deshaun Reynolds better known by his stage name DBMB Solo comes on the scene as a legacy artist to decade and a half long ghostwriter and song arranger DC Feagins who most people refer to as COACH. The 17 year old rapper is starting to create a bit of noise deciding to step behind the microphone but also in front of the cameras and pursue a music career. Dropping a 16 bar sound sampler on February 14 of this year, Solo is letting people know to start paying attention. We spoke with his dad today and he lets us know that Solo is green lit to start putting together his project and we will see some singles this Spring and Summer as well as a EP project as early as Winter of 2020.
Where are you from?
I was born in Italy but grew up in Cali and Alabama. Currently I’m with my dad in Huntsville, AL.
How long have you been making music?
I’ve always had a ear for music but I started really writing everyday and taking it serious about a year ago.
How many songs /albums have you released to date?
As of today, I’ve only put out my 16, just to give my fans an opportunity to start paying attention to me and the moves I’m making.
Can you tell us about your latest release and the background and inspirations behind it?
16 is just simply 16 bars, no real background behind them, just spitting off the dome really. Getting a little practice behind the microphone. LOL.
How have you ended up in the music industry?
Started falling in love with it more and more, and my dad was like if you want to do it, we going to do it. So when I seen that type of support from him and my mamma I know I had a real shot at making a career of it.
What do you think of the music industry in 2020?
I think there were some dope sounds and some that I didn’t care for. All together I think that that 90s dance sound is starting to resurface which will be interesting moving forward.
Who do you think the most influential artist?
To me personally it would be Young boy, just being able to see someone come from a real struggle and make it happen. Hearing him rap about his real life but still making moves to better his community and the people around him. For music in general, I think Jay Z because he is the blueprint to so many artist. He is a business mogul and his flow is still one of the smoothest out there.
Who have you collaborated with so far in your career?
I will be collaborating with the leading artist from my town of Phenix City, AL. His name is Tez G, we have a track together that will be a good one this Summer and also a track with a DJ for a more uptempo sound that is a little bit out of my genre but I think it will also give people something to turn up to at the pool and family reunions this Summer.
How do you think you differ from other artists?
Just being myself. I hear other people music and I support alot of artist but all I can do is get alone in my own mind and create what I know will represent me and what I stand for.
Dead or alive, who would be your dream collaboration?
Idk I think Tupac or Biggie.
What was the first album you bought?
I don’t remember. You know I’m from the age of streaming so, there is no telling. Something in rap I know that.
What’s your favourite song at the moment?
Tez G, Dream.
If you had to sell your music collection tomorrow, what album would you leave in your draw?
I can’t tell you that. Just wait on it.
What is your favourite saying?
What other hobbies or interests do you have?
Basketball is my love as well, so you know I get buckets. I’m still the man on that court.
Do you have any tattoos or piercings?
A couple of tattoos at the moment. More to come. My pops owes me a few too.
Tell us more about your upcoming project or this new project?
It’s crazy, ON God! Just believe its going to bring a different sound then what you’re hearing right now.
What’s in the pipeline after this project?
Single in a couple months, EP this Winter.
Thank you for your time and may you carry on making great, fresh music.
