He became a platinum star producer, but unfortunately some of the choices he made led to a halt in his career. Frustrated by two failed marriages, poor management and legal representation, he took a break from his music career. Since then, DJ Daryl has overcome the obstacles and challenges he once faced in his past, took the necessary corrective steps and changed his life for the better. At Bomb Shelter Entertainment, he has a solid business team which gives him the freedom to focus on production without worrying about the details of business operations. Currently, he's working on a new album titled, "Signature Sound" and releasing his "Retro Collection" (requested by popular demand). The Retro Collection will include your favorite old school "street hits" from your favorite old school artists such as, Tupac; Snoop Dogg; Master P; Mystikal; Messy Marv; Richie Rich and many more, all produced by DJ Daryl.
