Darius Foster is twenty-nine years old, born in New Brunswick, New Jersey then relocated to Perth Amboy, New Jersey. From New Jersey, Darius relocated to Ohio graduating with his Highschool Diploma. With a passion for music, Darius then attended Ohio State University. At the age of twelve, Darius had discovered his voice as an artist and his hunger for music all began in church. He not only knew how to rap and sing, but he also had a thing for instruments, like the piano and the drums. With the skill to become one of the best artists, Darius not only makes music he is a songwriter and producer as well. This is his story!

Who is Darius Foster?

My music is completely me I don’t try to be anybody else, I try to be myself completely and all the way through. Darius foster is a kid from the 90s trapped in the 2000s, defiantly. I can say that my vibe is more of a 90’s vibe than anything. I like to listen to music my mom clings to. You can throw some faith Evans on, and it would definitely get me going. With my music, I want to create that same feeling in the now, more modern. That’s why I like artists like Bryson Tiller and J Cole because their music gives me that same feeling. 

What is your musical background?

I grew up in church, and I would always sit next to the musicians in the church. The church that I use to go to the guy that played the organ kind of took me under his wing and let me play. Till this day I know how to play shout music and all that stuff.

How long have you been rapping?

 I would say since I was twelve, but I have mastered it ten years plus. When I was in Ohio, I would say around eighteen, nineteen years old. 

 So, was it always just you or were you in a group to start?

 I was in a bunch of different groups, when I was living in Ohio I started out by myself living with my uncle. I then met up with these guys names Chief and Marley; they were way older than they were my age now. I was seventeen eighteen around them and when I moved to Ohio it was really different. I never heard of Gucci Man before. You have to remember this is 2007 where all you heard was Wayne. So, this new artist Gucci Man comes along and it’s like who is this. But in Ohio he was like a god to them, that’s what they listened to. Now Chief and Marley were making the opposite; they were making music that I can feel, music beyond their time.

What advice would you give someone who wants to become a singer?

I would say to be as humble as possible when it comes to certain things. Just because things aren’t your cup of tea, don’t necessarily well, do it because you love it and not because of what you think is going to come out of it. 

Who gave you the support in the beginning?

I would say, my uncles, they were very supportive and John who I met up with during my senior year in high school. I remember just being on the bus one day and I was the Jersey kid in Ohio. Everyone was rapping like Lil Webbie and Lil Boosie, but I created my own style to rap to. After hearing my flow, my man John became my first manager. My parents supported me musically with instruments.  

Honestly, I can’t even tell you my first song because I don’t even know it. I can tell you the first song that was recorded, it was about how I was from Jersey and how I liked Hip-Hop music

What was your first song and what was is about?

Definitely, Your average rappers like Jay Z who is a mogul, Eminem who is a lyrical genius, J Cole, Usher, Drake, Little Brother, Slum Andre 3000 and the list goes on. 

What artist inspire you?

I want to inspire them by telling them to be themselves at the end of the like I know people get caught up into thinking that they have to be a certain way, there are a lot of stigmas out there as far as us being black people. Just growing up in certain areas theirs a stigma with doing things a certain way. Considered a punk when you show emotion or when you simply show love and I want to inspire people to not be that way because when I was growing up I a lot of that type of stuff. I was also influenced by a lot of that stuff to, just people weren’t themselves and its like a free feeling to really be yourself and it’s a free feeling to know that you are good the way that you are. “People try so hard to be something else and you work yourself and try to chisel yourself to fit into a certain type of mold. When at the end of the day you are the mold already.”
