About Danny Spence
Born and raised in Austin, Texas, Spence took an interest in hip-hop culture in his youth and was rapping into cheap microphones over Gang Starr instrumentals by high school. In 2006, he took his southern roots and sensibilities to the midwest. Now living in Lawrence, Kansas, Spence coordinates local hip-hop shows and continues releasing music on a regular basis. In the last year and a half, Spence digitally released one solo LP, two collaborative EPs and one remix EP. Aside from lending his voice to projects, Spence produces most of the beats himself. For his lyrical honesty and charisma, Spence has garnered comparisons to Kanye West, The Fresh Prince and Eminem. His recent incorporation of electronic sounds into soulful hip-hop illustrates that his musical sensibilities extend beyond typical underground hip hop fare. Spence is an artist who creates what he feels, and those efforts are appreciated by his listeners.
