Help the Victims of Hurricane Harvey

 

We will be forgoing our usual post in light of the Hurricane Harvey catastrophe. Today instead of focusing on music, we choose to hone in on the single thing that is most important to music…people. The people of America, the people of Texas and Louisiana. Having spent a generous amount of time in the area we’ve gotten to know these people, and they are simply wonderful. Kind, caring and sharing; the people of SE Texas and Louisiana hold a special place in our heart. Let’s help them recover from this tragedy. This storm is long from over. Even after the weather subsides, there will be much work to do to get things back on track in the region. Of course safety is the first concern, but after the flood these people will still need our help.

While in Brenham, TX, so many wonderful connections were made. A few souls in particular are calling out and reaching out. Today we choose to reconnect once again. Richard and Mrs. Savercool (tremendously kind and kindred spirits) have been on the ground doing their best to give a leg up to their fellow man while staying safe themselves. Somehow, Richard found a way to share his gift of music with the world despite not having power. Power…something many don’t have and will not have for quite some time as it looks. For those of us out of the area, we have power, but more importantly we have the power to help. Please watch the video below and please do your best to give within your means. As of today we have donated to help feed both locals and peoples displaced by this unprecedented event. If you are reading this please give within reason and if you can’t, please give thoughts and prayers to everyone affected by this storm. We have provided donation links below. We will also be rededicating our Website Paypal donate button with 100% going to the disaster relief efforts.  Do your part and do some good. With all of our love. ~DDC Team~

Lef Eye, is one of the three members of the music collective The Lost. The Lost are artists that use their eclectic taste in music, style, and view of the world to produce greatness. Lef is influenced by a wide range of artists like Lauryn Hill, Andre 3000, Kanye West and Childish Gambino, to name a few. Lef uses the influences to create his own style and showcases his abilities in his latest project Juice EP.

We previously featured Lef Eye’s “Delusions” on our Soundcloud page with wide acclaim. Lef Eye’s Juice EP displays his unique approach to hip hop. The EP contains the same wide array of lyrics as his previous Throw Aways EP, however Juice displays a much more refined body of work from the young emcee. Lef steps away from traditional trap style beats and substitutes the backing tracks with more deep atypical grooves displayed in tracks like “J. U. Ice (Get Down)” and “Kayo”. Lef’s lyrics show an artist that is socially self aware and sure in his hip hop footing. The DC area native blends a silky smooth delivery with political undertones to make for a rock solid EP.
