DURT was born in Akron, Ohio on May 21, and moved to Hopkins, South Carolina as an infant, and at the age of 18, he moved to Atlanta. He showed artistic dimension at an early age, spending hours drawing, and writing poetry. His poetry notebook he kept as a child was a source of inspiration for art and for music.
Now after failed career attempts, felony convictions, to even being homeless on his rise to the top of the music game, South Carolina native DURT brings us the first single release, “Reckless”, off his up-coming debut album “Not For Sensitive Ears”. “Reckless” is available for download on iTunes.
The single will set the stage for DURT to present his debut album, Not for Sensitive Ears, Produced by S9ine from North Carolina. On the single, DURT points his finger back at critics and those judgmental of him and others. He emphasizes the point that you can’t truly characterize someone’s life looking from the outside.
No stranger to the music industry DURT has been making music and performing throughout the southeast region since 2009. He has released several singles to the streets, been featured on the Kacey Chrysler mixtape series, and performed at the Charlotte Music Awards Showcase. Now, DURT is waiting to see the response he gets from his first commercially released single, “Reckless”.

This is a great, solid single from DURT. Even if this were released back in the early 2000’s, it still would have been a classic. But, being released now, it positions itself to be one of the few in the crowd. Real hip-hop fans are always craving something – anything really – that fills that void we’ve been used to, and this single does it. Hard hitting beat? Check. Head-on, honest and uplifting lyrics? Double check. No guest appearances from any of the current losers? Triple Check!
That’s all you really need. It used to be simple, and we used to get many albums of this quality a year. But now DURT stands almost by himself, carrying the torch for the current hip-hop crowd who miss their classics.
After hearing the “Reckless” single, I’m not worried about his upcoming album not delivering. The beat is definitely on point. And when I listen to hiphop, I listen to how the beat flows with the lyrics because sometimes the beat can make the lyrics sound so much better. On this single you can relate to everything DURT talks about, which makes me want to listen to him more.
On the basis of these facts, the “Not For Sensitive Ears” album, is hardly likely to let us down.
