“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
A versatile talent who mixes angelic singing with demonic rhyming, DC The Don has always cut a unique figure in the music industry. Rewarding his day one fans and giving his new followers a glimpse of the past, the Milwaukee rapper officially re-releases his DC DAHMER mixtape, now available on streaming services. Originally shared on SoundCloud in 2018 on Halloween, DC DAHMER is a fascinating portrait of the then-19-year-old’s burgeoning talent.
The new re-release of DC Dahmer comes with two brand new tracks: the lilting and heartfelt “Mood Swings!,” produced by Trademark, and the transporting, guitar-led “LSD Freestyle.” Both new tracks fit in seamlessly with the original material, demonstrating how he’s continued to explore and refine the sounds he first experimented with on DC Dahmer.
The original tape sounds nearly as fresh as it did upon its first release. The music leans into the Halloween theme, with songs about serial killers and horror film monsters: DC offers blistering torrents of terrifying triplets on songs like “GMFU” and “Freddy Krueger.” On the other hand, DC DAHMER offers a glimpse at the rapper’s melodic side, with highlights like the emo-inflected “Heartbreak Summer 2 </3“ and Featuring appearances from WavyPat and DC’s close friend, the late great Sad Frosty, DC DAHMER is available on all platforms via Rostrum Records.
The re-release of DC DAHMER is the latest salvo in what’s shaping up to be busy year for the 23-year-old artist. In January, DC released the endlessly creative new mixtape SACRED HEART (+), home to standouts like “SRT / UMBRELLA” and “SHUTUP!” Following in the wake of 2022’s “FUNERAL Tour,” DC plans to hit the road again this year, starting with a performance at Restless Fest, a SXSW showcase happening today, March 15th. In May, DC The Don hits the road with $NOT on his “Get Busy Or Die Tour,” where he will be a supporting act alongside Night Lovell. The rapper is hard at work on his third album FUNERAL, the follow-up to 2022’s My Own Worst Enemy, which has racked up over 55 million streams on all platforms to date.
Stay tuned for much more from the genre-bending rapper as 2023 moves along.

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.
