CLOUT. (Freestyle)

Fake Instagram Pages and Fake Love with Da Guyz Lyfe.

In small towns, you either think everyone loves you or everyone hates you; and when there’s beef, people scramble to a side. Whether you’re a party promoter, lash technician, or rapper, you can expect to take some heat with success.

Recently, rap group DGL (Da Guyz Lyfe) with the most prominently known face, Too Tone, have been reaching new heights in their music career. Other members include Vel, Murda, TK and others. They have been booking shows, expanding their performance route, winning showcases, and securing more venue opportunities. And while they’re fans have been vocal in their support, the group gained some haters too. The extra attention in a small city like Frederick has caused anonymous dirt-digging and juvenile sabotage.


An impostor Instagram account surfaced claiming to be the group but instead of posting pics, threw shots. On the fake account, direct insults about individual members and DGL as a whole were posted. The account added many of DGL fans and friends further convincing everyone of their identity. It wasn’t until users began accepting the new DGL account that the posts began.

It is rumored that the another popular rapper and his entourage are behind the fake IG profile and bashing. It is also speculated that a young woman made the page out of spite.

Cue the music!

They do anything for clout,
They do anything for clout…

As a response, battle rapper Billy Black released his remix to Cardi and Offset’s “Clout” to address haters riding a wave for attention. Watch the video below.

“It’s so much talent out here but it’s a power trip thing. Everybody wants to be on top so there’s no support. N*ggas got that mentality out here like why would I support the next n*gga when I got my own wave…and that’s the reason why —- like this happens. Tone and them are really picking up the pace with that music; they’re driving shows in and out the city, they’ve won competitions, they have a lot of fans and there are people out here that don’t like that so they hate. And in general there are just a whole lot haters period that’s why I dropped “Clout” cause [people] really do do anything for clout.” – Billy Black

A Food Truck Fantasy Come True.

Kiki Wilson - Jul 15, 2019

Frederick Coachella -- if we had to describe it. The festival was a good looking crowd of fashionable and fun Fredericktonians eating out of cartons and drinking beer. The good life. With performances, good food, and a blazing sun, it was a festival for the books.
