Darius signs with New South Entertainment

BIG NEWS! Darius has signed a contract with New South Entertainment to put out his first rap CD!!! New South’s Bobby Stamps, who will be co-managing Darius’ new rap career, also manages rap superstar Bubba Sparxxx. Bubba performed at our Seventh Annual Darius Goes West Weekend in July.

Darius has already spent many hours in the recording studio in Athens and plans to have 2-3 songs ready for downloading by the holidays. His first album is expected to be ready by early spring.

In fact, Big Daddy Weems, whose rapper name (at least for now) is Grind Time, plans to hit the road in May/June, and already, middle/high schools and colleges in the Northeast are organizing concerts to showcase his talents. If you want to jump on the bandwagon, holler at us.

Meanwhile, we congratulate Darius on his new endeavor. He is pumped about using his raps to continue spreading awareness of DMD…and raising funds for research.

Know about it!

    Congratulations Darius, My wife & I have two boys with DMD. You are an inspiration and role model to everyone, showing what can be achieved with a can do and don’t give in attitude. Hope all goes well you deserve it.
    Will you be looking to come to the UK to promote your album, I think that would be awesome.

    Congratulations!!! I showed your movie in class to my students and it really touched them and opened their eyes to DMD and also the issues with having accessibility to places in your wheelchair. Thank you for sharing your story with us! We wish you the best and we are looking forward to hearing your rap CD. Take care Big Daddy!!!

    I’m a teacher at Stivers School for the Arts and I just showed DGW to my class. We loved it. If you come to Ohio and are in the Dayton area, please consider coming to Stivers. We are a school for the Performing Arts and it would be a great opportunity for us to hear about the making of the movie and now about the rap career. We are truly inspired and want to help spread the word about DMD.
