Video: DC The Don – “Telfar…“
The Milwaukee Rapper Embraces His Demonic Side in the Latest Video From the Ambitious Concept Album My Own Worst Enemy
“Not only can he sing with so much emotion behind his words, but he also knows how to masterfully rap as well as switch up his cadences constantly, always keeping you guessing about what he’s going to do next.” – Lyrical Lemonade
“Los Angeles by way of Milwaukee’s DC The Don is part rapper, part rockstar, excelling in the melodic and riotous lane popularized by cult heroes like Lil Uzi Vert and Trippie Redd.”– Audiomack
DC The Don combines pop-punk melodies, rage-friendly sonics, and hard-nosed spitting into a blend that is uniquely his own. Sharing the latest missive from his mischievous, red-haired alter ego DONNY, DC The Don shares “Telfar…,” his new music video. Produced by DJ Kidd, whose single-note piano bass to add a menacing, trap-style edge to the apocalyptic production, “Telfar…” finds the 22-year-old rapper eschewing melody in favor of hard-nose raps, spitting rapidfire as he talks his smack: “I made it first boy, you motherf*ckin’ counterfeit/Watch how I flex when that f*ckin’ deposit hit/I want a lot, but I still got a lot of sh*t/Choppa gon’ sing on some f*ckin’ melodic sh*t.” In the video, directed by 713Bran, DONNY wears a sweater that bears the MOW3 logo as he stalks an abandoned train station amidst flashing lights.
Arriving in the wake of “Diamonds & Rubies,” “Telfar…” is the latest video from My Own Worst Enemy,, DC’s ambitious concept album. My Own Worst Enemy tells a loose narrative about the Rostrum Records signee’s inner conflict, which manifests as a battle between two distinct personalities: RAG3 KIDD, who represents the artist’s more wholesome and romantic side, and DONNY, a demonic, red-haired spitter who emerges on the album’s harder-edged beats. The album kicks off in DONNY mode, featuring some of DC’s hardest tracks to date, including the massive “ENEMIES,” with a beat that sounds like a malfunctioning supercomputer, and the devilish “MAKAVELI,” a fiery lyrical exercise. As the tracklist progresses, RAG3 KIDD makes his presence felt, emoting over candy-coated production on pop culture-referencing tracks like “iCarly :/,” “Scott Pilgrim,” and “Futurama 2099.”
Blending elements of rap, pop-punk, hyperpop, and more, My Own Worst Enemy both expands and refines DC’s sound, allowing the 22-year-old rapper to showcase every facet of his wide-ranging vocal ability. With production by heavy-hitters like JetsonMade, Starboy, Supa
With over 50 million streams since its release earlier this year, My Own Worst Enemy is available everywhere via Rostrum Records.

DC The Don is a rapper from Milwaukee, WI. In 2016, at the age of 16 and standing 6’7”, DC moved to Los Angeles to pursue a basketball career under Lavar Ball and alongside teammate LaMelo Ball. During this time, he fell in love with music and used his spare time to make experimental records which suddenly gained traction – As the public became increasingly aware of DC The Don’s talent for rapping, NBA player Lonzo Ball featured his song “Everything 1k” on the first Big Baller Brand shoe commercial, introducing DC The Don’s music to an even wider audience. DC signed to Rostrum Records in 2020, releasing his debut album Come As You Are on August 7th, generating over 125 million streams across platforms. The artist looks to reach another level with My Own Worst Enemy, his ambitious new album, available everywhere now.
