Curly Savv and Dah Dah established themselves as some of the best up-and-coming artists in New York City after they released "Gang Gang Gang." "It's Curly Savv, I ain't here for no intro," was the beginning to one of Savv's most memorable verses to date, and "He yelling out: 'bro yo I'm hit,'" became popular with fans, as it was one of the most recited lines from the song.
The energy Savv and Dah Dah bring to the city's trap music scene has been missing for quite some time, and the Brooklyn duo has taken full advantage of the void by carving out their own lane. As a result, the two built a huge following, and the video has over three million views on YouTube. After their singles, "Told Y'all" and "We Up" both reached over one million views, Savv and Dah Dah eventually caught 50 Cent's attention. On the Drink Champs podcast, 50 Cent said he appreciated the duo's raw energy.
With the summer coming to an end, Savv and Dah Dah just released the visual "Can't Hold Me," which is the one of the lead singles off their debut project 1st Quarter. Curly Savv sets the tone for the track as he opens the song with a few bars before Dah Dah gets hyped up on the chorus. The two go back and fourth as they wild out in front of the camera, and perform with a certain type of electric energy that is difficult to find from new artists. It's clear that the two are working on their craft and getting better at making songs. Not to mention, their flow and lyrics have improved, and it's evident in Dah Dah's last verse.
Hip-hop is headed in a new and refreshing direction. The young boys are taking over, and trap music has come to the forefront of the culture. The new artists from New York have defined their sound, and Curly Savv and Dah Dah are some of the young guns leading the way.
