DDm is a Baltimore-based emcee, who over the past handful of years rose from the battle-rap circuit to star solo performer in his own right with the release of last year’s full-length debut Beautiful Gowns, which served as an introducing to the Charm City-based artist’s bravado, wit, humor, heart and unique style with album singles like “He Say She Say” and “Pull Up” have amassed over 100,000 total streams on Spotify and YouTube.
The Baltimore-based emcee followed up with the Ballad of Omar EP released earlier this year, and the effort finds DDm stepping his game up while reminding listeners that he’d never forget where he comes from both literally and stylistically. DDm caps off 2020 with “Stop My Bag,” an infectious banger centered around a stuttering horn sample, skittering, tweeter and woofer rocking beats and the Charm City-based emcee’s swaggering bravado-fueled delivery and witty, zero-fucks given word play.
“‘Stop My Bag’ is about creating your own lane despite what others think you should be doing,” DDm explains in press notes. “Defining your own idea of glamour and what success looks like.”
Directed by Nick Gorey, the recently released video features the Baltimore-based emcee and his crew serving up some fierce, avant garde looks in some extravagant settings — and of course, it all looks like a high fashion shoot for Vogue or something like that.
