It is said that art comes in many forms. DaVinciBands illustrates that point with his 2023 debut, “Young Bands.” DaVinciBands’ artist name is an homage to the great, Leonardo da Vinci, in the sense that DaVinciBands sees himself as more than just a rapper, but as a true artist. “Young Bands” has the bravado and boasting omnipresent in Rap, but also has the hopeful, motivational lyricism prevalent in Hip-Hop; thus, demonstrating DaVinciBands’ versatility, and lyrical and artistic prowess.
“Young Bands” is really the story of DaVinciBands. He dives into who he was, who he is, and who he aspires to be. Although the record is his first release following his hiatus, it serves as an omen for a productive, successful year. DaVinciBands states, “I dropped one single last year following my EP because I allowed my depression and mental health to get the best of me, and I promised myself that once I start again, I’m not stopping anymore.”
DaVinciBands’ unique flow and unrivaled wordplay make his music standout from the crowd. DaVinciBands is truly money in “Young Bands.” The catchy hook and vulnerable yet hard-hitting lyrics coupled with the upbeat, piano-laced instrumental, which was produced by Bradley Moon, gives “Young Bands” much replay value. Therefore, it seems fitting that “Young Bands” serves as the lead single for DaVinciBands’ upcoming project, “DaVinciBlues,” which is slated for release later this year.
Malcolm Grant Jr., otherwise known as DaVinciBands, is a music artist that was born in Miami, Florida, but raised in Lakeland, Florida. Music started off as therapy and an outlet for his emotions, but he quickly realized that he had a true gift and started pursuing music seriously in 2020.
DaVinciBands has since released two singles and an EP. His vulnerability when it comes to talking about hard times and his struggles with mental health, and his clever, unparalleled wordplay have garnered him attention from various media outlets. He makes his 2023 debut and return to prominence with his latest tune, “Young Bands,” which is a single off of his upcoming project, “DaVinciBlues,” that will drop later this year.
