A extrmely eclectic limitless mix of music he creates with a fusion of Underground Hip-Hop, Reggae, Rap, R n B, Club Jams, Hip Rock (a combo of hip hop beats and tasty guitar rock riffs with singing added that sounds like a rock n roll legend. There is no one out there like him. Music in his blood his dad is a master guitar player for a living and his mom is a lounge singer. He started playing guitar at a early age of 7 and started playing in bands at 12 with a deep love of punk rock and rock and roll he started his band called Los Federalies
He soon got a hold of his dads drum machine and a 8 track recording device in high school. AROUND THE SAME time he started falling in love with hip hop, carefully listening to all of eminem's underground freestyles. Really finding a love in strong lyrical ability he became D-Frawg he used to be d-dogg but his buddies on instant messenger copied him. so he changed it to frog because its more appropriate D-frog is not a gangster or tries to fit some image so hes nota Dog. He is just a regular white dude that happens to love rap. He calls himself a poet because he doesnt want to be classified with the unintellegent lyrics of todays rappers. He has been thru a lot of crazy stuff that most people have been thru and his lyrics are just windows into his life , struggles , personality and opinions. He started Frawgytyle Records
Born and Raised in Long Beach Ca He was very influenced by groups like Sublime and Snoop Dogg

He also founded Long Beach Strong Beats where he sells beats to other artists and has tutorials and drum kit's for sale for fellow producers. His claim to fame is raping while playing guitar at the same time. And if you catch him live expect to bust a fat guitar solo to one of his beats. He produces his own beats, writes his own music, mixes and masters, makes his own music videos, graphics and hell even this website! He just wants to tell his story which he believes can help others who has had problems with drugs, girls or life in general. He doesnt leave out his wild over the top personality tho when he isnt rapping about a serious subject. He loves all music so he creates all styles depending on what moods he is in. He also plays gigs at bars singing top 40 songs and playing the guitar solo more information is on my Darin Hastings website click here. I have been doing music for years I put my heart and soul into this I know the music industry is flooded by barnies but I refuss to be one of those fake sell outs. Music is my escape from a negative live I am trying to leave behind. I have done it for years but life gets in the way. Its hard to keep a roof over your head and play music unless your famous. So I apppreciate any support and open mindedness. I promise you wont be dissapointed. I will be posting New music soon. The next album I am releasing is straight outa space Just in times for star wars 7
