It’s been months in the making of the D.V. Alias Khryst LP. But with two decades under his belt of commercial music production, scraping together hard hitting beats and identifying lyrics for the people is a no-brainer to this Brooklyn native, who heavily weighs in on the Facts. Khryst released his first single, “Lights Out” in 2016 featuring super MC Redman and produced by Multi-Platnium duo Midi Mafia. Last year, he gave us head nodding joints such as “Nintey-Seven,” “Seven,” his M.I.N.G project and the most recent single, “G.D.M.M.”
While gearing up for the upcoming album’s release, the Father Of Hip-Hop Soul releases his new single, “Khryst Is Coming”. With the LP official release date still undetermined, the LP is projected to be released everywhere through label imprint, Dgsup, Inc Records.
The album is purely motivated by, “Pain. Sometimes the pain brings out the best in an artist,” says KHRYST.
The General’s recent credits include production for 50 Cent, Maino, Uncle Murda and Smooth Da Hustler. His more distant accolades include his feature on De La Soul’s Art Official Intelligence album with smash hit record “Thru Ya City,” produced by the legendary J Dilla which was also featured in video game True Crime Stories of New York, the HBO hit series Sex in the City, and the blockbuster film Made starring Sean Combs/“P Diddy,” Jon Favreau, Vince Vaughn, Famke Janssen, Faizon Love, and Peter Falk. The General also appeared on movie soundtracks The Black Mask with Jet Li and Eddie Murphy’s Nutty Professor. He has worked alongside countless other notables such as Method Man, Jay-z, Lil’ Mo, Scott Storch, Ice T, and Clark Kent of Superman Productions.
