David E Beats Blvd firstly, WHB is a hip hop rock project that I created to get out my ideas on how to mix the two genres.

David E Beats Blvd what #dopesauce means is that you’re ready to do whatever to succeed and have a good time
David E Beats Blvd #dopesauce is just enjoying life, and taking advantage of every opportunity and moment!
As The Music Plays Hip hop and rock – two of our favorite genres. What was the inspiration behind you wanting to bring those two musical styles together?
David E Beats Blvd thats how i grew up, my moms listening to gospel and soul and pop, dad listened to hard rock and heavy metal. Its just natural for me to mix, its already been mixed in my life!
As The Music Plays Any particular artists or albums that has influenced your sound?
David E Beats Blvd i got into hip hop because of The Blueprint by Jay Z. First rap album I ever heard. Other than that, it’s just been songs here and there I heard daily that my mom would play or dad would play in the car, in the morning b4 school, afterschool, during bedtime, late at night, there was so much music around me growing up.
