Daniel Diaz is a hip-hop artist from Rhode Island, NYC, who is also known as “Real” because he always speaks the truth.
As I listen to his song “Never Tradable”, it becomes evident that his words come from the heart, with an honest, raw and emotive performance.
The song begins with sultry, warm vocal tones of a female backing singing, which sets a comfortable and alluring atmosphere.
I am immediately captivated by this unique song and as Diaz begins to rap, I feel like I’m listening to an old friend.
There is a deep intensity within his vocal tones, and it is obvious he has a strong personal connection to this story.
His soulful, heartfelt song and performance are a winning combination, and I adore his rhythmical poetic wordplay, which stays with me for hours after.
Diazs’ interest in music was sparked at a young age by his Mother’s merengue and salsa music around the house. His musical development was positively influenced by a broad education from living in both the States and the Dominican Republic.
By the age of twelve, he was writing his own lyrics and his love and passion for music, and connecting with people through music, has only grown since those early years.
Diazs’ goal is to give hope to those in need, and have a positive impact on people’s lives.
There is an important moral lesson behind this song, which is, never give up, always stay true to yourself, because you, your life, your soul, are “never tradable”.
And just as Diaz stayed true to himself and his dream, he hopes to help other young artists stay true to themselves, no matter what their circumstances.
If you enjoy music from artists such as Evidence and Black Thought, then Daniel Diaz will fit perfectly on your playlist.
