Hartford's D-Celli Blends Mainstream and Underground
It's difficult to find an artist who can be classified as the "complete package," with a true talent, a unique voice, and a firm grasp of the world around them. It's even more uncommon when that artist is a rapper from Connecticut. Let's face it, CT is not exactly a hip-hop mecca. Despite the ever-changing landscape of hip-hop, the general population seems to be stuck in an era where drug dealers and big gold chains were synonymous with rap. The truth is, a younger, much more dynamic generation of rappers is coming to the forefront, and Hartford's Dylan Arcelli, aka D-Celli, arrives at the perfect time to catch that wave.
