About D. Yelv
27-year-old Baltimore bred rapper and songwriter D.Yelv (real name Darren Yelverton) is cementing himself as one of the top up-and-comers in hip-hop. Born and raised in the gritty city of Baltimore, the rapper wanted to stay out of trouble, so he turned to music as an outlet. At the age of 18, D. Yelv attended college at the University of Maryland, gaining a degree in English Literature & Language, which greatly influenced his music. This is where he watched young artists (like J. Cole) develop and grow into superstars, which inspired him while also using his education and degree to help him master his flow and songwriting. From here, he recorded his first EP Preconceived Notions followed by his second tape Infinite, which gained a ton of traction around D.C., Maryland and Virginia. The rapper names Jay-Z, Nas, J.Cole and Joe Budden as his musical influences.
