"Premiere: Daz Rinko Gives Up On "Following Love""

With some pitched down humming that harmonizes soaring synths, Daz Rinko’s “Following Love” takes flight. Joined by a punchy beat and a funk bass line, the Memphis artist raps in sing-song about heartbreak. The hook, which repeats the mantra that you “Can’t keep following love,” spills across the song with fuzzy distortion and reverb, countered by a clear female backing vocal. Daz’s underwater bridge takes aim at the shorty who made him feel this way with lines like, “You ain’t got no conscience girl, you ain’t got no lovin’ girl.”

It was written after a particularly bad break up, Daz tells Mass Appeal. “We actually broke it off a day before my last tape dropped. I really tried to take from all my past relationships while writing it in its entirety, though.”

The melodies and tones, produced by Donato, are reminiscent of The Pharcyde’s “Runnin’,” evoking a similar vibe about similar subject matter. Daz ties his sound in with Goldlink’s future bounce wave, a bright, danceable genre-blending sound with rap at its core. Watch for a new Daz Rinko EP to drop sometime soon. - Mass Appeal

"Daz Rinko Responds to Police Brutality in Latest Single "SOS""

The media portrays political messages that do not always include the hard facts of what is truly taking place behind the camera. Today there’s plenty of talks about police brutality and racism, which have always been relevant issues in our country. The lack of authenticity was caught by Daz Rinko, revealing his thoughts on the subject matter on his track ‘SOS.’

The Memphis rapper features theMIND on ‘SOS’ with a soulful and optimistic approach in human equality. Regardless of how difficult it may be to stay strong through these misfortunes is essential.

"5 On It: The Future Party"

In our hot take, blink-and-you-missed it society, we tend to spend an unhealthy amount of time and attention on trivial things and, worse yet, on analyzing those trivial things. All of us—particularly those of us who spend an inordinate amount of our days searching for great rap music on the Internet, in clubs, in studios, or wherever it lives—could do well to take a step back and constantly remind ourselves what’s most important in our lives (there’s a great parable about this sort of perspective that my father used to share with me every so often involving a professor, golf balls, pebbles, sand, and beer).

Music, of course, is hugely important to so many of us in maintaining our happiness and sanity, but the analysis of music and culture, while potentially illuminating and important for pushing our thinking forward, can sap one of the most indefinable art forms of its healing powers.

"I don’t really know what to say/Put the radio on this when you had a bad day"

Memphis rapper Daz Rinko’s “Vibe Wit Me” isn’t a cure all, but it is the sort of song that puts music’s palliative function first and foremost, a would be release from daily difficulties. “Vibe Wit Me” likely won’t change your life, but it should make your weekend better. - Pigeons & Planes

"10 Track Commandments, Vol. 11: Shit You Shouldn't Sleep On"

I like to dig through SoundCloud. So here, I present the results of my excavations (in alphabetic order): Nine tracks released in the past month that you shouldn’t miss, plus a tenth track that’s kinda old but still knocks. Hopefully this’ll help get you through the rest of your week, to the blessed lituation that we often call the weekend. #TYBG.

3. Daz Rinko – “VIBE WIT ME” With Soulection spurring along its future bounce “Sound of Tomorrow,” the aesthetic is seeping into all corners of hip-hop. Indeed, it is a sound that everyone’s trying to bandwagon, and often imitation is not the best form of flattery. But Memphis’s Daz Rinko’s execution on “VIBE WIT ME” takes on a larger scope. He’s shaken any kind of Southern intonation, instead opting for a dynamic and spry beat by Soulection producer PYRMDPLAZA, proving that musical precedents don’t necessarily have to box you in. - The Hundreds

"5 On It: Assorted Strains"

Memphis rapper Daz Rinko doesn’t sound like what you might expect from a Memphis rapper—no discernible Southern drawl as he hops energetically across producer PYRMDPLAZA’s future beat thump on recent single “Ran.” It’s a breath of intriguing (if perhaps not “fresh,” since the Internet makes all ideas accessible always) air from one of rap’s most storied and pillaged cities, a sign of the inevitable intermingling of ideas and a reminder that it’s never what you do but how it’s done. - Pigeons & Planes
