Darko the Super is the weirdo rap superstar alter ego of Evan Souza. Born in the bosom of suburbia in 1993, Darko the Super wrote his first song at the tender age of 5. A prolific mad genius on the beats and microphone, also the mastermind behind indie label, U Don’t Deserve This Beautiful Art. Darko the Super has collaborated with the likes of Lil B, MC Paul Barman, Homeboy Sandman, Open Mike Eagle, and Mr. MFN eXquire.

His favorite album of all time is “Hello Nasty” by the Beastie Boys. Darko has stated his biggest inspirations in life are Bill Hicks, Frank Zappa, and Andy Kaufman. Other influences on his style are E-40, Kool Keith, Del the Funky Homosapien and Ghostface Killah.

As a producer, J Dilla, Madlib, and MF Doom have had the biggest impact on Darko’s production technique. Darko played his first live show at a college in Lancaster, PA. He cleared out the dance floor and made $47. That was the genesis of his career as a professional musician.

Ideally, great music is timeless. No matter when it was made or when you hear it, you know you are hearing something special. That type of music is supreme and must come from a supreme talent who respects the craft. That level of talent and class is what you get from this new collaboration from Darko the Super on the new song “A Kid Again”.

The six track EP takes its title from Deltron 3030’s album cut, “Upgrade (A Baymar College Course).” The lead single, “Go Harry,” is a story rap about the fictional Harry, a character akin to Travis Bickle in Taxi Driver; a paranoid schizophrenic and war veteran against the government.

The project opener, “A Kid Again” is a nostalgic tale filled with references to everything from Tech Decks and Capri Sun to Yao Ming and “Throw Some D’s.” Most importantly, the song asks if your childhood self would be proud of who you are today. Find out these answers and more on, One Day It May Matter.

Shortly after, he started landing gigs and performing all over Philadelphia or anywhere that would have him, and eventually connected with independent cassette label, Already Dead Tapes in Kalamazoo, MI. Later, Darko took a bite out of New York City, linking up with collaborators Steel Tipped Dove and Harvey Cliff, who became two pivotal pieces of the U Don’t Deserve This Beautiful Art stable. Harvey Cliff became the Darko’s Art Director, Jeff Jank would be to Stones Throw in these formative times for everyone involved in the label.
