  Defiant Darīus is a Baton Rouge-born, Houston-raised artist. Growing up, Darīus was inspired by the likes of Tupac Shakur, Nasir Jones, Jermaine Cole, and Nipsey Hussle to speak on his life experiences throughout the black community.

 

Following the success of his mixtape The Perennial Chronicle, he’s currently preparing to release his first EP titled The Defiant EP. 

 

He has been giving back to the community through charity events, cultural events, and other forms of creativity since the founding of Illustrate Records. As he would say, he wants others to “Illustrate through the Hate”.

Bonnie and Clyde

While in pursuit of my dreams. I came across someone who genuinely had me stunned. I asked if she was down to ride until the end, no matter what the outcome. Loyalty was the foundation. The rest was history and our story began.
