Audio: DC The Don – “Wait Your Turn”
The 20-Year-Old Milwaukee Native Shows Off His Versatility in the Pop-Punk-Flavored Single
“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 multifaceted talent who can craft soaring melodies as well as fast-paced rhymes, DC The Don uses his music to stress the importance of always being yourself. Indulging his inner rock star, DC The Don shares “Wait Your Turn,“ his latest single. Built around a ferocious guitar riff that would feel at home on a Blink 182 album, “Wait Your Turn” wears DC’s emo and alt-rock influences on his sleeves, as he forgoes his lightning quick rhymes in favor of emotional wails. The song mixes the guitar riff with a swinging trap-adjacent instrumental, as DC The Don works through relationship woes with a woman who is moving too fast for his liking: “Baby it’s no rush, you gotta wait your turn, yeah/Baby when you cut it burns ya/Where you at, I’m still concerned, yeah/I’m goin’ back I guess I never learn, yeah.” Produced by Trademark, “Wait Your Turn” proves that DC makes as convincing a rock star as he does a rap star.
“Wait Your Turn” is the rapper’s first new song since the release of Come As You Are, DC’s engaging and hyper-melodic debut album, which has amassed more than 40 million streams across platforms. Spanning 14 tracks, CAYA emphasizes the importance of being authentic to your creative self, and reflects the 20-year-old rapper’s willingness to put in the work and create his own lane in a stifling city. The new album is home to previously released fan favorites like the pop-punk “Jesus Can’t Save You“, the hard-hitting collab “Red Light” ft. DDG & YBN Almighty Jay, and the Supah Mario-produced “Nascar Racer.” With additional production from Trademark, Garza, SephGotTheWaves, and others, Come As You Are is available everywhere via Rostrum Records.
