DYFL (Demetrius Lumpkin) is an independent hip-hop artist from Miami, Florida. Not too long ago, he released a melodic hip-hop/rap tune, entitled, “Amen Amen”.
DYFL – “Amen Amen”
“I was losing my faith. The art was always more important to me but I felt like the artists that cared more about materialism and didn’t deserve the fame and stardom were the people that God was blessing. I was jealous, I was broke, I felt like I was doing something wrong. It affected how I was writing. I was about to make the same music the artists I didn’t like made. I let my struggles make me forget who I was.” – DYFL
‘Amen Amen’ contains a relatable storyline, introspective raps, and laidback instrumentation flavored with hip-hop and urban soul elements.

“I wanted my faith back, I wanted that same hunger I had before so I went soul searching. I remembered who I was, what the bigger picture was. That’s why in the song I say ‘I use to want a Rolls Royce and Rollie, Jesus piece chain so everybody thinks I’m holy’. Decoded, I’m expressing how wanting fame, money, and success made me lose who I was and what I believed. But with the right people around me, I found my way back and I’m grateful for that every day.” – DYFL
DYFL started recording music under super producers Cool & Dre. Later, he branched out on his own and started releasing mixtapes online.
His third mixtape, entitled, “Rise of A King”, was hosted by DJ Khaled. Since then, DYFL has appeared on the BET series, “One Shot”. Also, he has landed deals with Converse and Journeys shoes for various musical collaborations.
