Maryland based Independent Rapper President Davo has seen a lot in his lifetime. Growing up in West Baltimore that has seen its share of crime and violence, he hustled his way up and managed to make positive things happen. He shares a lot of his life and experiences in his music and his upcoming single, “My Town” is no different. On the track, President Davo gives listeners a glimpse into what it’s like living in Baltimore. Like a day in the life of a Baltimore resident, Davo takes listeners through the trenches and shares some of what he and many others go through and do to survive there daily. “My Town” marks Davo’s first release as a part of a new deal with a major distribution company and is a sign of what’s to come from the artist in the future.
