Darick DDS Spears | Born Milwaukee, WI

Following the successful reception of Darick DDS Spears’s 2014 The World Is Yourz album, the man spent the year playing shows around the Midwest, New York, and even L.A. "The World is Yourz,"  received praise from Lifehack.org, calling it one of the "25 Best albums to Listen to for Productivity.” In this album DDS writes about true life experiences, including relationships, motivation and community issues.



When Darick decided it was time to start recording his second album, he found the songs that shared some emotional states and community narrative threads. In June 2015, Darick released the a powerful social EP album called The One Love Project which was recognized on The Grammy Ballad. He dedicated this album for the people. Inspired by what's going on in the world today: police brutality, crime, injustice, religion. The One Love Project’s first song Cop Killuz, has been nominated for a Global Peace Award in Hip Hop June 2016. In Sept 2016 he was nominated for 2 IMEA Awards as a solo artist for Hip Hop Artist of the Year & and Hip Hop Song of the Year from his 2016 album release called Breathe.

Darick DDS Spears produces, writes, performs and arranges his own albums.

Musically, his label Elevator Muzik Group, both polishes and expands their listeners approach. In the Summer of 2016 he released a full album called Breathe. He then re-released his underground albums FreeZone, FreeSpeech, Daydreams, & I Hope You Can Relate. 

Some things just don’t mix together, like water and oil. Some people just don’t work well together like Kobe and Shaq. But some things just happen to have a touch of fate that brought them together, like the music industry’s new phenomenal and diverse group called “Happenstance.” This group is comprised of Pop Singer Dennis Sy, Jazz/Pop Singer Natalie Jean, and Hip Hop Artist/Producer Darick “DDS” Spears. Could they be the next Black Eye Peas? Nope. I would say they are the first “Happenstance.” 



What brought them all together was a powerful single called “Shine On which went on to receive numerous awards, and even recognized on Grammy Ballad.” Shine On was so well-received that Deejays, radio stations, and other people were wondering what would be next. The group is now working on their EP release which has no title at the moment. 

Between January-March 2017 Darick released the singles “Paranoid” which won a Global Music Award, Growing Pains, and Where is The Love, “ and a full-instrumental album called “The Workout Album,” which were all well-received.  



As an author, Darick Spears is known for his recent release and Amazon Bestseller “The Diary of a Stay-at-Home Dad: My Journal Behind Bars.” Thought Catalog called the book, one of the top 3 books for fathers who are trying their best. He has began a new book department called the 21st Century Shakepears Publishing Company. Releasing two books The Diary of a Stay-At-Home Dad, Sex Tells (A true story with such suspense, sexual innuendo, and much more), Poetic Confinement (find Darick at the core of his poetry), and the "Most Controversial" Book to date "Bitch.. Nobody Raped You (A true story from the life of Darick Spears.)
