Don Modus, the rising star in the rap scene, has taken the music world by storm with his latest release, “Dark Knight.” In an exclusive interview, the hip hop artist shares his creative process, inspirations, and how he infuses the spirit of Batman into his music.
Modus reveals that his connection with Batman goes beyond mere admiration; it’s a reflection of his own journey. The use of masks, both literal and metaphorical, is a shared trait. Just as the DC hero hides his true identity behind the mask of a vigilante, Don employs a mask in his branding to emphasize the importance of values over appearances. He relates to the fictional character’s duality, highlighting his own double life as a clean-cut individual by day and a street-savvy hustler by night.
The core message of “You can’t choose the life you wanna live, you gotta let it choose you” strikes a personal chord with Modus. He shares his unexpected path into rap, shaped by relatable lyrics and a call from the universe to pursue his passion. He also delves into the challenges of fame and maintaining authenticity. Modus stresses that controlling one’s narrative and focusing on craft are key to balancing public image with private struggles.
Drawing parallels between himself and Batman, Modus praises the superhero’s multifaceted nature. He finds inspiration in his ability to wield wealth for a higher purpose, a trait he aspires to emulate.
“Dark Knight” stands as a testament to resilience and a rejection of negativity. Modus recounts instances of adversity, from personal losses to professional setbacks, all of which have fueled his passion for music.
Fans eagerly anticipate Modus’ forthcoming EP, What It Takes. Exploring themes of loyalty, determination, and personal growth, the record promises to encapsulate Don’s unwavering dedication to his craft. His journey, much like Batman’s, reminds us that confronting challenges head-on and striving for our goals with unrelenting determination can lead us to our full potential.
