Biography

Darryl Dwayne Granberry Jr., known professionally as DDG, is an American musical artist and entertainer from Pontiac, Michigan. After releasing music as an independent artist, he signed to Epic Records in 2018. DDG has one studio album VALEDICTORIAN, released in November 2019.

Early life

Darryl Dwayne Granberry Jr. was born in Pontiac, Michigan. He attended International Tech Academy, where he was class valedictorian. After high school, Darryl enrolled at Central Michigan University, where he later dropped out for what he says was making $30,000 per month being a Youtuber. After dropping out of Central Michigan, Darryl moved to Hollywood, California to be a full-time Entertainer.

Career

DDG was interested in music at a young age. He made music as a child in the studio where his father was an engineer. His early music included a diss track on Lil Yachty, which was called, "Big Boat". DDG released two songs in 2016 entitled, Balenciagas and Free Parties, both produced by Zaytoven. He also teamed up with Famous Dex for a song entitled, Lettuce. The track was initially released on DDG's YouTube channel and had 500,000 views in 1 hour causing WorldstarHipHop to contact DDG to allow them to exclusively release the video.

After the release of Lettuce, DDG was contacted by major record labels, and in June 2018 signed a deal with Epic Records.

On November 23, 2017, DDG released the single, "Givenchy". The song received over 25 million views on YouTube. Complex identified "Givenchy" as a song "Bout to Blow in 2018".
