David J. Thorp has been walking under his father’s footsteps for the past 16 years. His father, David E. Thorp, unfortunately, passed away in 2003 as a result of long-term alcohol abuse and a series of poor life choices landing him in a hospice bed at the age of 50. Living under the shadow of his late father, David J. Thorp wanted to escape the same fate, so he went on and enlisted in the Army after spending ten years as an active duty Marine.
On top of everything, he also managed to maintain a full-time career in analytics for the biggest beauty company in the USA. With everything he already had on his plate, he even went ahead and started a music career, which might sound insane to some people, but David Thorp knew better.
He has been pumping out a lot of music in the past six months, though if one truly looks beneath the surface, he hasn’t just been releasing “music.” David Thorp has been releasing art in a musical form. He doesn’t just “take it seriously”; he breathes new life into his music and creates it with such fine attention to detail. The music, the content, the lyricism, all of it blends seamlessly together to form a coherent form of art that only David could ever create.
With his catchy hooks and impeccable delivery, David Thorp is ready to change the musical landscape forever. His mixes and masters are highly professional and well-crafted, and he tells a very unconventional story compared to the typical rapper fare we hear these days. David can fully connect with his audience because he is as genuine as he can be.
While most modern rappers put up this persona of being a cowboy or a gangster, reflecting the romanticism America has always had with the outlaw, the cowboy, and such figures, David Thorp isn’t about all that. He doesn’t sing rap songs about selling drugs and killing people just to keep his audience’s interest.
David Thorp is a unique individual that always stands out no matter where he is. So he figured out a way to connect to audiences in the most genuine way possible, through their own cultures. This creates a deeper connection with his audience, and he doesn’t have to own up to a certain persona just to satisfy the masses.
He didn’t just become a hip-hop artist in his late 30s; David Thorp has always been an artist through and through. Currently, he is looking to release his album aptly entitled Story No One Ever Told, which is a story about his life, which he is telling through his record label, SOD Media LLC. As the artist and son of David, he distributes audience-driven content more than he makes his own music.
His story begins in Quincy, MA, where he was born, and he grew up around a unique culture that no one outside the New England area even knew existed. He grew up with Cape Verdean culture, and the community welcomed him with open arms as he heavily immersed himself in their culture and music. Now he is giving back by embracing their culture with creative video content.
David Thorp and his videos have been watched by over 100,000 people in Cape Verde. And likewise, he has built a strong relationship with Hispanic culture. He continues to put out a complement of highly creative video edits that embrace Hispanic-American culture through many of the more popular reggaeton records.
Over 15,000 people in the Dominican Republic have viewed David’s content, and that number continues to grow each day. David Thorp has officially become a multi-cultural phenomenon. With his totally unique life experiences, he has somehow found a way to pull off a style that is full of genuine lyricism and suave all at the same time. The rap game has never had anyone like David Thorp, and the truth is they never will. He’s in a league of his own, and no one could ever compare to the amazing son of David.
