D-M@K did a great job in no time. I am really happy to work with him together. He is extremely creative, very friendly, absolutely professional. I´ll be happy to work with him again!!!
I definitely recommend working with Mak. He's a thinker and a contemplator and if you're looking for a song with true meaning along with strong creativity, then you should hire him. He's written several songs for me and i've recommended him to several artists around the country.
One of the most professional Artists I have worked with. I have went to him several times in need of a hook for a song, and whether it be for hiphop/rnb I have always been happy with the results. If you need someone for writing, or simply a good verse you need to work with him.
