NEW MUSIC: “Nowhere To Be Found” – Avatar Darko (prod. by Southside of 808 Mafia)

Avatar Darko - Nowhere To Be Found

Avatar Darko’s Soviet Goonion 3 is set for a mid- to late-June release. Now that that’s settled, “Nowhere To Be Found” lets us know where Av is likely to be, well, found: in speedboats, Audis, and the company of bad women with controlled substances. Who cares if he still can’t grow a beard?

Avatar Darko - Murda Murda

Sounding like the ’70s, Avatar Darko tries on a suit of a different color. This flow, this (gasp!) conscious lyric sheet, this throwback production (courtesy of Billy Patron and Apoulo), it all fits Av like a custom Glock holster. “Murda Murda” is off the rapper’s upcoming Soviet Goonion 3.


VIDEO: “IDK” – Avatar Darko (dir. by Ralph Madison)

Avatar Darko looks right at home on Coney Island in his new clip for “IDK” (from the rapper’s forthcoming Soviet Goonion 3). Av has converted himself into Seattle’s most unlikely rap renaissance man, from his earlier relentlessly thugged-out mixtapes, to a post-college SoCal-based grimy glamour life, to the nihilistic emo trap stylings of his recent albums, it’s always done with a hearty nod to his Russian roots. Unbiased and unfiltered, Av is always refreshing in a mouth swilled-with-Vodka sort of way. “IDK” was directed by Seattle native and now NYC resident, Ralph Madison.
