From Comedian to Singer
Atlanta comedian DC Young Fly is well known for his comedic role on Nick Cannon’s Wild N’ Out, but vaguely known for his rapping and singing capabilities. In February, DC dropped his latest single “24 hours”. The song “24 Hours” shows us a completely different side of DC. We have become accustomed to the “no-holds-bar” DC that he shows us while on the stage.
In April, DC Young Fly dropped the video for the song “24 hours”. The video, which has over 6 million views on YouTube, starts off with DC waiting on his girl to finish shopping. While he’s waiting, he reaches out to another letting her know he is only in town for 24 hours and to send her location.
“Put it in rotation. Send your location. We only got tonight, baby. Imma have you singing like ‘whoaaa, whoaaa’. 24 hours ’til we get it in.”
Throughout the video, directed by Ben Marc, DC shows off his dance moves alongside his female partner. We can still see his comedic side as he laughs slightly while dancing, but to be honest I think all our Dirty South Hip Hop readers can agree this is a very ‘sensual’ video. Looks like DC might be ready to give some artists a run for their money.
Check it out.
