He describes “Oblivion” as “an overview of the past, a prayer for the future and a space fable all in one.” Dv2 will be preceded by a series of one-off songs and verses called The Road To Rebellion that are strictly focused on “forcing people to recognize I’m one of the great spitters of this era and I won’t be ignored in that light anymore.” He is also currently in the midst of launching his label and music supervision company, Precious Metals Creative.
