Sometimes in life, we go where we are led and at other times we are summoned for something bigger.
Dirk LP plainly puts it as he's heard the "Call To Greatness"! Dirk LP is a rising rapper out of Alabama that has been honing his craft for quite sometime. He's released several mix tapes throughout the years such as Go Green and Solid which have all had positive reviews amongst critics and fans alike. In his newest addition, Call To Greatness, Dirk lays it on the line and lets the world know that he's coming for the top.
When you listen to Call To Greatness, it's easy to hear that Dirk LP isn't out to be some gimmick that's hot one moment and gone the next. He's an artist whose dedicated to putting out a quality sound that fans of rap can identify with across the map. One of the most interesting things that we've found in DLP's music is his surprisingly deep vocal tone. It instantly puts one in the mind of a cross between Houston's Z-Ro and Skeltah's Big Rock, which only adds even more intensity to his focused lyrics. Call To Greatness is what independent music is all about, let's take a look at two of our faves...
"Like Right" is one of the songs from CTG that first caught our attention for it's creative hook and seamless balance between lyrics and production. This song is definitely one that will have you crankin the speakers a few decibels as DLP talks of his rise in the ranks over a beat guaranteed to leave you rockin where you stand! For a rising artist to grasp the importance of letting a beat breath and knowing when to throwdown is something that we as fans of music can truly appreciate in itself.
"Loudest Of The Loud" is another interesting track from the Call To Greatness mixtape that finds Dirk LP on his "Alabama Sh*t" ,poppin collars and talking about his love for Mary Jane. Now even for those of us that don't bask in the steam greenery, we can still get a good contact off of Dirk's generous kick drum and charisma laced track. In addition to CTG, there are also many other tracks from Dirk LP that show even more versatility in his music which you can find here.
For those wanting more Dirk LP sooner, you'll be elated to know that he will be embarking on the "Call To Greatness Tour" starting mid-July, so be on the lookout for that!
