Demelius "D.Millz" Simpson (born April 26, 1993) is an American rapper, singer and songwriter from Grapeland, Texas..[1] He began his professional musician career releasing his debut mixtape, How I'm Living, in June 2018.

Early Life[edit]

Simpson was born and raised in the East Texas town of Grapeland, Texas. He played football[4][5] and basketball[6] throughout his high school years while also recording music as a hobby.[7] After graduating from high school, he continued to improve his craft as a musician and grew a fan base throughout East Texas, eventually culminating into an opportunity in which he opened for A Boogie wit Da Hoodie in Houston, TX.

Career[edit]

2018: How I'm Living[edit]

In June, 2018, Simpson released his debut mixtape, How I'm Living, under stage name D.Mill. With this project, he was able to grow his audience throughout East Texas.

Early 2019: Motivation[edit]

In March, 2019, Simpson released his second mixtape, Motivation, under his current stage name, D.Millz. This project was well received, leading to multiple opportunities for him to headline live performances and open for other established artists.

Mid 2019-present[edit]

After his second mixtape, D.Millz had a string of singles released including "God's Work" and "Trust Nobody". In April, 2020, D.Millz released "Atlanta" for his upcoming project. The single quickly amassed the attention of new listeners for him and expanded his brand beyond Texas.

Artistry[edit]

Simpson's aura and demeanor are heavily influenced by Nipsey Hussle – being described as authentic, versatile, humble and novel. When asked if he feels pressured to make club hits, D.Millz explained why that is not a priority for him adding “I make music for the people. The club don’t have ears.”[8] Sonically, his music resembles that of Bizzy Bone meshed with August Alsina the way he merges lyricism and singing into soulful rap.
