With a long career ahead, Darlintino is poised to take the R&B and hip-hop music scenes by storm and win over fans worldwide as he invites them to join this trailblazing music journey.

On the night of November 11, 2022, Darlintino was involved in a grisly road accident, which he barely survived and actually had his jaw wired shut for quite some time. Two weeks after the night the casts were taken off, he recorded this massive hit dubbed “The Wire / Survivor’s Guilt” which is his testimony about fighting his way through an engulfing darkness to finally reach the realms of the light.

This performance is an incredible representation of his lyrical ability and prowess as he wears his heart on his sleeve and takes the listener into the depths of what inspired this release, incorporating realism and such poetic finesse in his bar delivery; unleashing epic flows like
“I’m that cat sign, so that’s seven outta nine.”

The guest singer Mannie adds that depth and elegance with the memorable hook at the track’s heart, and the accompanying music video fits the track’s essence and narrative perfectly.

This is a beautiful and uplifting body of work bursting with such honesty, authenticity, and heartfelt conviction—perfectly suited for your music playlist. This is the track to remind you that through the seemingly thick and terrifying darkness of the night emerges the morning sunshine to herald a new day with new beginnings and so much hope!
