Some follow the obvious that optically appears to be the most comfortable; North Carolina native Dylan 333 is breaking the mould. With only a month having elapsed since he first decided to try his hand at a career in music, he managed to amass some admirable number and gain the attention of one of the SoundCloud generation’s most notorious influencers, Adam22.

“The first week of my second song release — ‘Drum Talk’ — I caught the attention of Adam22 [nojumper] and was posted on his live stream,” he tells AAHH. “He reposted my song on Soundcloud and that instantly gave me the boost I needed.”

The attention earned him an invite to freestyle on the famed Most Wanted Radio on North Carolina’s 72.9. “[That appearance] gave me a local/regional platform in my city to build on,” he says. His first 30 days in the game saw him earn 50,000+ (organic) plays, 5,000+ likes and features on Funkmaster Flex’s Facebook and Tokyo Tonis Instagram — and even a like by JuiceWrld which is akin to proof of attention.

“I also have struck a distribution deal with AWAL where I can get my music out to performance centers and all major platforms,” he adds proudly. All quite impressive for a young upstart with four songs to his credit — all of which he produced and recorded independently in his bedroom. There is also a lot of foresight on his part, as he’s launched his own imprint, 333 Records, which is the primary owner/publisher of his music.

Born on the island of Jamaica, and later relocating to North Carolina, Dylan describes his sound as a mixture of dancehall and American rap. “[That blend] makes me sound extremely different from other artists,” he says proudly. “I started off as a producer so when it came to the point of me creating (my own) music I could produce myself without any help.

With the recent success energizing his grind, he reveals to AAHH that he is currently working on his debut album, which he plans to release in 2019 — though he has no set date.

“My goal is to come into the game and actually change it,” he says humbly. “I want to inspire people to try out different things instead of investing all their money into education.”

Brilliant Mississippi minds unite with positive vibes as Dear Silas and Big K.R.I.T. team for “I Got It”, produced by Luke Sampson and Walter Newell. This track is available now on all digital platforms, and a Dark Brothers-directed visual will premiere this month.

“The song kinda came out of nowhere,” Dear Silas explains. “My manager sent it over and Krit liked it so much, he sent back a verse immediately. I canceled a trip and shot the official video on my birthday! This record was born from me feeling down and thinking I hadn’t progressed enough in my life, but listening to the track more and more made me feel empowered like, ‘I can really do this’. I want to encourage people who feel like giving up”

Dear Silas experienced success with his 2018 hit single “Skrr Skrr”, and released visuals from his album The Last Cherry Blossom throughout 2019. In the new year, the multi-talented musician, songwriter and visual artist will be revealing fresh sounds from his upcoming project, with more shows and more exciting adventures to be announced.
