A lot has changed in the career of rapper D2X since I first encountered the Chicago emcee’s music last summer. From dropping his Enjoy Life’ EP to getting spun on legendary Chicago hip-hop rap radio station Power 92, D2X has seen his stock rise steadily since he started fully committing himself to his craft in 2016, and he continues this growth on his latest track, “VVS”.

While D2X has proven he’s capable of spitting more introspective bars when he wants to, he instead takes a moment to flex. Painting a rags-to-riches picture with his verses, D2X uses “VVS” to refer to the diamond-level luxury he’s been aspiring to while still making use of his impressive lyrical capabilities. He keeps his circle consistent too, working with frequent collaborators Kid Marquis and Glohan Beats who accentuate the rapper’s flows with their own.
