Critical Praise for DaVinci:

“[DaVinci’s] wider goals as an artist, his views on the world outside the music, seem like the kind of thing that fans of rap from all corners might find appealing.”Pitchfork

“[DaVinci] has a point and an emotional thrust behind that point… it’s pretty enviable.” – FADER

“Hard-nosed, raw, and without compromise… one of the best rap records of the year thus far.”Jeff Weiss

“The epitome of what it means to be a ‘street’ rapper, DaVinci offers stark and realistic commentary on his surroundings and the people in it.”Maurice Garland, Ozone Magazine.

The Video:

In March 2010, DaVinci released The Day The Turf Stood Still, a truly striking debut album, and one that allowed listeners to share DaVinci’s gaze as he watched his neighborhood, the historic Fillmore District in San Francisco, experience an overhaul due to impacts of gentrification and urban renewal. DaVinci’s new EP, Feast Or Famine , released for free download late last month through his label, SWTBRDS, largely follows in those footsteps, while taking a broader look at the ills that affect – both good and bad – inner city communities across America.”

Central to both projects is DaVinci’s quest to find a voice that not only represents his own views, but also the struggle, pain, and celebration of those around him. And, inspired by the young rapper’s work, Brian Chu and Austin Chu, collectively Werehaus.tv, set out to capture just that with their mini-documentary, “DaVinci: A Fillmore Story.”

“Working on this project with SWTBRDS and DaVinci has been more than we could have asked for,” explain Brian and Austin, noting that the project was their attempt to create, “an honest piece about the struggle to find oneself, and develop a voice that represents where one’s from.” Opening with an acapella take on a verse from previous single “D.R.E.A.M.,” the mini-documentary chronicles DaVinci traveling throughout the city – home, the studio – as he speaks on how growing up in The Fillmore impacts his outlook on life, the struggle and care for others that permeates his music, and much more
