E-Specific is not new to the music scene. He released his 1st Rap album in 1989 under the name (Dr.Ease). The album was titled “Put your mind & body at Ease”. The label was Bulls-Eye Records with distribution from Ichiban Records.

His real name is Darryl T. Easley from Dayton,Ohio which is best known for being the funk Capital of the world in the 70’s for creating hit music with groups like Slave, Phaze-O, Lakeside, Heatwave,Roger Troutman & the Ohio Players which inspired him to create his own niche in the music Industry.
He was the 1st rapper from Dayton, Ohio to release a Hip-Hop album, his 2nd CD was titled “Ease-Droppin proper & rugged” in 1993 under Startrak Records. He has been in Magazines such as The Source, Rap Masters, Right On, Billboard and has opened shows for MC Hammer, Ice-T, N.W.A,Snoop Dogg, Too Short, Heavy-D, LLCoolJ & The Notorious Big.

After exiting the hip-hop game, he wrote & published his first book about his trials and tribulations called (Almost There). He calls it an inspirational book for up & coming Artist. He started doing Spoken Word in 2009 and created his own form called Spoke-a-nition. It’s like Spoken Word but using definitions to tell the story. He then created the name E-Specific because he was being very specific about what he conveys by using definitions.

E-Specific wants to push his new form of sound because it’s fresh & new. Be on the look out for his CD titled “Specification”…..
