David Vanison has always had a slight interest in music. Still, ever since he started paying more attention and taking music seriously, this fascination has quickly ballooned into his biggest passion. The twenty-four-year-old from Hyattsville, Maryland, goes by GoodGuyDavid1 and is quickly gaining prominence in the hip-hop scene for his thought-provoking lyrics about love and life.
The young artist says he was influenced by rap and hip-hop icons like Drake and Kendrick Lamar into honing his craft. He shared that he looks up to God and American pastor and televangelist Joel Osteen for inspiration when creating his music. The musician is quite open about his faith and spirituality, which is highly evident in the lyrics of his previously released tracks.
In 2018, he dropped his first album, God’s World, which is available on Youtube Music and SoundCloud. It includes tracks with uplifting and inspirational messages such as “Love for Our People,” and “Positive Role Model.”He has also released his first music video entitled Flying Part 2, which can be viewed via Youtube. The video has already garnered an impressive view count of over 11,000 to date.
This refreshing perspective and approach to music are driven by the rapper’s strong need to become better as a person and a role model. Someday, he aims to perform on big stages all over the world and share his amazing talent to inspire the younger generation and help give them a more positive view and outlook on life.
Apart from his musical prowess, GoodGuyDavid1 also sets himself apart from the competition through his unique style and quirky sense of fashion. The singer sometimes wears face paint and other forms of makeup like eyeliner and eyeshadow for his music videos. He can even be seen sporting a colored contact lens on one of his eyes from time to time, in true GoodGuyDavid1 fashion. For him, having a distinct style helps him stand out and makes it easier for people to recognize him in a sea of aspiring musicians.
The songwriter has big aspirations and dreams of someday becoming a millionaire and a successful record label owner with a wide roster of A-list artists. As for the future of his personal music career, he still sees himself performing occasionally and even plans on expanding his horizon by incorporating other music genres such as rock and R&B into his repertoire. At the same time, he also wishes for the simpler things in life and would one day hope to settle down, have a lovely family with a beautiful home, and be able to travel with his loved ones.
The budding rap star has been hard at work to jumpstart his career and shows no signs of stopping any time soon.
