Designer Rap Tour is an unconventional music, art, and design expedition that has grown over the last 4 years into an adventurous study abroad. DRT was launched in 2020. Yes indeed, in the heart of a global pandemic! It's interesting how challenging times can open doors to new opportunities. The concept was sparked from a simple, yet courageous act of scratching my own itch. I actually toured the country, not just as a hip-hop artist, but also as a graphic artist and designer with a passion for traveling, exploring, networking, and drinking craft beer. 

My love for photography and video propelled me to document my journey as I flew by the seat of my pants. I even appointed my son, who was only 5 years old at the time, as my tour manager. By this age, I was done buying gifts that would soon fade away. I wanted to give Wes experiences—memorials that would stand the test of time. 

Well, it’s 2024 now, and my son has already toured more than 15 cities across the U.S. with me. As for me, I’ve toured over 50 cities and small towns within 17 states. I'd say we've been on a roll, but there's still a long way to go on my quest to tour all 50 states and every major city. So far, I've met a lot of people and built solid relationships. I've checked several things off my bucket list, sold quite a bit of art, and made a lot of music. And I've collected lots of hats and enjoyed a variety of beers from all over. Everywhere I go, I find my tribe. Welcome to the Tour!
