[Premiere] D2X Gears Up For New Tape With Hard Hitting New Single “Might As Well” Featuring GLOhan Beats

D2X is an artist who’s been on my radar for the past few months thanks to his strong presence on the mic and consistent progress he’s shown every time he drops music. He’s back this time with Might As Well, a hard hitting track that features bumping production from GLOhan Beats and Jon G. who come together to create a brooding landscape for D2X’s forceful flow. GLOhan also makes an appearance as an MC and shows that he can both spit and produce beats with authority. The chemistry between these artists is clear and this energetic song should get everyone excited for D2X’s EP Enjoy Life which is dropping August 10th. After giving the whole project an early listen I can honestly tell you it’s some of the Chicago MC’s best work to date and showcases an eclectic mix of sounds and styles, ranging from jazzy and personal to more aggressive, as exampled on Might As Well. Listen to the single below and definitely be ready to check out the Enjoy Life EP on August 10th. … More [Premiere] D2X Gears Up For New Tape With Hard Hitting New Single “Might As Well” Featuring GLOhan Beats
