Artist of the day: DLass and Qwest
St. Petersburg High seniors Diego Lasso and Alexander Witherspoon have transformed into DLass and Qwest, friends and rappers pursuing the same passion.
The rappers typically post links to their new work or statuses on their own Facebook pages when new songs will be released. Qwest released music videos on YouTube for Babylon and So Alone, which features DLass. The two have collaborated on one other song, Work, set to release in the near future.
For the time being, neither is looking to establish a rap career; both mostly do it as a hobby. They have become well-known throughout the halls of St. Petersburg High through promotion on their Facebook pages, and DAPPRroductions, the videography business run by friend Declan Abernethy, whose bedroom has become the recording studio for both.
