All things considered, New York has become lamer in ten years than just about any city in human history (maybe with the exception of St. Petersburg in 1917). There are sterile condos everywhere, droves of uppity public enforcers, and an entire social echelon of people who never stop eating brunch. Thank the lord for DVS, who's been killing the New York underground rap game for years after starting out as a hardcore singer. He's a thoroughly New York dude, reminding us that this city still has a nuanced personality if you look in the right places. He's consistently contributed fast-paced airtight verses with Heems, Kool A.D., Lakutis, Hot Sugar, and Big Baby Gandhi, among others, but refrained from releasing anything himself—until now. Give his outstanding album DVTV, a listen above.
