The Codex: “I’ve Got Next” is the debut album from that n.e.r.d life by D’Vo, Christian Hip Hop’s newest artist from Houston Texas.
The acronym n.e.r.d. stands for Needing Eternal Redemption and Deliverance, a reoccurring theme within the project. The official release of the album was December 22, 2019, which is oddly enough the start of this new season.
The album features a lot of genres Rap, Hip Hop, Pop, Jazz, and Soul. D’Vo said something very interesting, He mentioned that “there is not enough positivity in music to combat all the negativity in the World”. He sounds like an individual that gets it and the sky is the limit for the young man, D’Vo.
Audio – “The Codex: I’ve Got Next”:
Christian Hip Hop’s newest artist D’Vo, is from Houston Texas. He has always had a huge infatuation with music. He comes from a musically inclined family.
His brother plays multiple instruments, the bass, violin, saxophone, and piano. His mother is a singer and a published author. His dad is a musician who plays trumpet and multiple instruments as well and has had several studio albums under his belt. His dad performed opening acts for legendary artists like Smoky Robinson the Bar-kays, Cameo.
Growing up with a recording studio in his home, D’Vo has always had musical passion; but now he is harnessing this passion to serve for God. He considers himself a connoisseur when it comes to music.
He enjoys everything from mainstream music like Post Malone and Drake to legendary classics like Anita Baker and Michael Jackson. He would often go back and recapture the work from Tupac Shakur and Maxwell, he cites as his all-time favorite artists. Of course, growing up in Houston Texas, the entire culture within the city molded him as well.
When he was younger, he would often listen to jazz stations and let the music carry him to another place while filling in the words in his mind with graceful lyrics.
His basis for everything in his music is for the sole purpose of showing the world that God is the answer to all things. D’Vo is an independent artist that is currently working under his label, Element 11. We look forward to seeing his growth in the Christian Hip Hop community.
