20-year old Bristol rapper and producer ThisisDA, releases his explosive EP ‘Based Off Black’ and shares the new video for ‘Hotsteppa’, produced by Mankub with suitable live DJ scratches courtesy of Audiosnax. The video was shot and directed by Tim Crawley (Run The Jewels, Paul White, Danny Brown), with a cameo appearance from Bristol visual artist Just Scribble.

ThisisDA reveals…”you could say this record is about my darkest days”, before adding, “and the term ‘black’ is an umbrella one really, concerning depression, my visual aesthetic, race, even the book of Genesis – everything comes from the black. My whole life is based off black”

The excitingly talented young artist, continues to drop strong tunes, after his impressive early offerings ‘Won’t Change’ featuring West Coast rap veteran Blu and ‘Sell Me’.
