D'Vo's "The Codex: Running the Point. Volume II" album showcases his single, "Swagger From My Father".
"Swagger From My Father" is from "The Codex: Running the Point. Volume II" of D’Vo’s Christian Hip-Hop Series, released previously on April 11th of this year. The definition of this specific bop is dancing to a certain sound of pop music and this perfectly displays that. D'Vo is a flavorful hip-hop artist that has the power to constantly grab your attention also displayed in this album. The hook is very reminiscent of Houston legend, Pimp C, or even the younger works of Lil Boosie. The rich harmonies in the background add flavor to the track similar to Justin Timberlake or Pharell.
The song was also executively produced by D’Vo, and the beat was from Houston legends, Beanz & Kornbread. It is primarily about enjoying life but remembering to put God first. D’Vo, a Houston native, vividly describes the Houston culture as well as going further to include that he is serving God and how passionate he is for Christ. He makes it clear that the "swag" that he has comes from his heavenly father. While in the midst of a breakup, he flows “live my best life doin' me is a bargain, livin' for Christ in my heart is the only option”. This song is such an interesting concept because it is not your traditional praise music.
Let's keep our eyes on this artist who seems to overwhelm the digital world with soulful hip-hop music that is centered around innate principles, and spiritual growth.
