Currently working on his upcoming EP, titled Young, Loved, Hated & Broke, D-WHY takes a moment to let the masses hear what he’s recently been cooking up in the studio. Dropping off the new project’s first single “FaZe Clan,” produced by K.E. On The Track (who’s other works include Future’s “Magic” and DJ Khaled’s “I’m So Blessed”), we see D take it back to his hip-hop sound as he lays some quotables over the bass-rattling instrumental. For those curious as to the title of the track, D-WHY went on to provide the following explanation:
The title originated from one of my best friends who is an avid CoD player and watches FaZe Clan videos on YouTube religiously. He said to me one day in a conversation about my music and performing, “D, you’ve gotta kill ‘em like FaZe Clan.” That’s where the recurring line in the song comes from. After playing the track for several people, they all began calling it “FaZe Clan” and the title just stuck. Honestly, this song is just about being yourself, being confident in who you are and not caring what other people think. I love coffee—so what? If I replaced the word ‘espresso’ with ‘bottle’ in the chorus in reference to alcohol, no one would say anything about it. It would be normal. But that’s not me. Be yourself and don’t be afraid to be different. That’s the real motto.
