Dario100 (Darius Handy).
What do you do & what inspires you to do it?
I’m a rapper and songwriter ideally seeking to produce music that captivates my female audience in a way they can resonate with.
How do you define success?
Success is doing something that makes you happy and being able to live off of it.
What would you say to motivate a younger you to be successful in life?
Always believe in yourself, never let other people’s opinions and judgements keep you from doing something. Dream big, no dream is too big, you can achieve whatever you put your mind to.
Are you doing now what you’ve always wanted to do or did you have other aspirations previously?
I have always aspired to be a rapper/songwriter. Now I’m just working on getting compensated more – LOL.
What’s the best business or personal advice you’ve ever received?
“You have to get comfortable with failure before you find success, because failure is where the lessons and growth are.”
What’s something people would be surprised to know about you?
I really enjoy watching plays/productions. I respect the preparation and hard work that goes into them. On top of that the ability to memorize all of those lines in front of a crowd without letting your nerves desert you is something special.
Do you believe in a higher power?
I’m a very spiritual person. I believe there is a god inside of us all and the power of choice is our greatest weapon.
What’s something you can’t live without?
Music of course. I’m always listening to it old and new. Or I’m somewhere making it. It keeps me going.
Where do you see yourself in 3 years?
I see myself way more established as an artist. I see myself as a public figure somebody to look up to. Touring the world doing shows, giving back to the community, huge back to school drives etc., and ultimately, I will have attained success to the TEE!
Single or taken?
Single. Waiting for that special woman to fall out of the sky or into my lap – LOL!
How many tattoos do you have?
I have 8 tattoos; none are visible, so women are usually surprised when they see them, and I like that.
Name a song you like and artist.
Big Krit x “1 Oh Oh”. He should go ahead and give me a call so that I can get on the remix.
Name a movie you like.
Friday! Might be a bit cliché, but I know every word. It’s my all-time favorite hands down.
What do you like to do for fun?
Spontaneous things, jet skiing, skydiving, parasailing, finding a new secluded spot to write poetry or songs. In the same breath spending time with my loved ones will always top my list for fun.
