Get To Know DCG BROTHERS [Interview]

Ian Hansen

Get familiar with DCG BROTHERS out of Chicago because their charisma and uncanny ability to create an electric energy is something that is unreplicable. I got to sit down with DCG Shun and their goals and wisdom is through the roof. Get to know DCG below:

Being brothers, what was it like growing up together, and what made you guys want to make music together?

To be honest, Bsavv was rocking first. He already had a thing for rapping. I started rapping for real in 2018 or 2019. He just kept asking me to rap with him. He wrote a song, and then I wrote my half, and we finished it. One day we just went to the studio and kept rapping?

What made you want to keep pursuing it to the level it’s at now?

The fans. The fans keep us going. We have a great team around us, and everybody sees the potential. Why give up today when I can be where I want to be tomorrow?

What do you want your fans to get from your music? What’s the main goal to reach the fans?

My main goal with the music and my fans is if I can do it, you can do it. I’m never flashing or stunting on anyone. I’m always thankful for where I’m at. If I can do it, you can do it too. Nobody has it all figured out. We don’t have forever, but we have everyday to work toward what we want to get to.

Growing up in Chicago, how did that shape your music and you as a person?

It means a lot. It’s where I’m from, and I’m a product of my environment. Everyone knows how Chicago is. If you can make it through this, you can make it through anything in life.

DCG means Dreams Conquer Goals. How did that name come together?

Dreams conquer goals. It explains itself. Bsavv came up with that name for sure. It was something else at first. He was like let’s change it to this because it would sound better. It was going to go further for longevity. If you work toward your dreams, you’ll conquer them for sure.

Your recent single, “Get Money,” is fire. What was the process of making that song and working with MoneySign Suede?

It is always a genuine vibe with DCG. You’ll pull up on DCG, and it is always a genuine vibe and never forced. My manager and A&R pitched him to us. He was going crazy. I’m going through his page and listening and thought it’d be fire. I wanted to do this for the culture. He’s from a place just like me. He’s from the trenches of L.A., and I’m from the trenches of Chicago.

You also released a great project in “Jungle Life” this year. What does that project mean to you guys?

It means everything to me. That’s my first project. I put so much time and hard work into that project. Blood, sweat, and tears. We recorded late nights and would be out of the studio at 9 in the morning. We were just working and perfecting the music.

Consistency is the trend for you. What is the importance of consistency, and how does that lead to greatness?

It’s super important. Consistency comes with longevity. You have to ask yourself what you’re doing this for. Everyone knows what we are doing it for. Consistency will get you where you want to be. No matter what you’re doing with your life or career, always stand tall and stay consistent with what you’re doing because you started off giving your fans what you gave them, and they will always look forward to hard work. Always make sure the fans are situated. Always stay consistent.

What does it mean working with Chicago legends like G Herbo?

That’s my dog. He means a lot to me. I grew up watching him as an artist. Watching him work and stay consistent and doing everything I’m doing right now. It’s like a head start because people before you — if you pay attention — you’ll see what they had to do to get where they’re at now. There aren’t shortcuts in this. I appreciate him and the game he’s given me. The music is one thing, but it’s much deeper than music with him. We have a different type of relationship. We went on tour with him. We are really locked in. He will be on the next project for sure.

What was that experience like going on tour with G Herbo?

It was crazy. Our song wasn’t even out yet, and we were about to drop the “Jungle Life” project. We first hopped on tour, and people really knew our music. He just really gave us a chance. That’s big to be on somebody’s tour who is selling out 3,000 people a night and packed out rooms I’ve never been in before.

Speaking of Chicago, you also have a Lyrical Lemonade video. How cool was it working with Internet Money on “House Party” and eventually Cole Bennett?

That’s big right? That’s Cole Bennett. He is so genuine, it makes no sense. When I first met him, he was super cool. He brought me to the office to meet his team. He always keeps us tapped in. I never asked him about a music video because I knew once he was rocking with us, it’d be big. I don’t even have to ask him, he’s already rocking with DCG. I couldn’t ask for anything else in the world. Once he really started rocking with us, he would ask us to send him music. Anytime I’d go to the studio and make music, I’d send it to him. One time, I was at the Internet Money house with my manager, and we made some fire songs and “House Party” was one of them. We sent them right to Cole Bennett. Two days later, he texted me back and wanted to shoot. We made it happen in Los Angeles. The video wasn’t even supposed to be how the video was. We had a whole different setup for the video. It was crazy.

Charisma is something that stands out with you guys. How important is charisma?

It’s super important. It keeps me humble. Everybody is trying to win. There are a million people doing the same thing and trying to win. As long as I know my spot and where I’m trying to get to, it’s super important. It keeps me sane. It keeps me humble. It keeps me planted.

What can your fans look forward to in the near future?

This new project we are about to drop. I want to say we are dropping a new project before the year is over.

What’s your legacy going to be when it is all said and done?

I want to be remembered as one of the biggest groups to come out of Chicago. We will get these flowers.
