@TheDanteRyan is a rising rapper and singer from Berkeley who’s been getting a bunch of support from artists local fans really respect. That list includes Show Banga, Sage The Gemini, Big Rich, Drew Banga, and Bakary Buner amongst others. Today he lets go of the 5 track Toxic Fool, which finds him trying on a number of different sounds and subgenres. While he shines the brightest on the auto-tuned, multi-genre R&B records like “Midnight in Paris” and the EP’s title track, Ryan has a lot of room to grow in rapping, but also shows plenty potential. Where his flow sometimes falls flat, he has some gems such as “I’ma keep bringing the heat, after all my name is Dante” which highlight how clever he can be. Check out the new EP above. I’m sure we’ll be hearing a lot from him in the coming months and years.
