Yesterday, the legendary DJ Carnage posted a series of mysterious announcements on his Instagram story. Now, the secret is finally out. Carnage has uncovered an archive of lost footage from 2015-2017. The goal?
To direct and produce his debut full-length documentary. This documentary highlights Carnage’s experiences in some of the biggest festival stages from around the world. We will be able to go inside the story of a titan of the trap genre. Titled ‘The Price Of Greatness, A Look Into The Misunderstood’, Carnage’s new film promises to show a side of the DJ we’ve never seen before.
‘The Price Of Greatness, A Look Into The Misunderstood’
Dedicated to Avicii, as well as his friends, fans, and every producer out there determined to make it. ‘The Price of Greatness’ is an up-close and intimate look into the life of DJ/Producer Diamante Anthony Blackmon (a.k.a Carnage) told by the artist himself. For years, we’ve seen DJs talk about their lives in front of a screen. Swedish House Mafia, Avicii, Steve Aoki, and many more have shared their life, their goals, and their struggles with us. Now, Carnage goes in-depth to show us what sacrifice, appreciation, joy, friendship, innovation, and success have all meant for the DJ during his lengthy career.
Undoubtedly one of the biggest figures in trap history, Carnage is a pioneer. A self-made man. He’s been one of the biggest collaborators and starters within the Urban/Rap/EDM fusion world. Working with rappers such as G-Eazy, Migos, and Young Thug, both as a producer and rapper, Carnage has managed to stay relevant in the scene for more than a decade now. Besides that, the DJ’s also known for his charitable work in favor of illegal immigrants crossing the USA/Mexico border, as he lived the same situation during his childhood. Finally, Carnage, true to his roots, continues producing what he loves the most. Bass music. The DJ released ‘Blitzkrieg’, ‘Slot Machine’, and ‘Holy Moly’ all within a month.
Enter: ‘The Price Of Greatness, A Look Into The Misunderstood’. Produced by his own label Heavyweight Records. The artist aims to take us inside the journey. The journey of an artist who managed to defeat stereotypes, challenges, and a tough childhood. The result? One of the biggest artists inside his own genre.
From one Latino to another, I want to congratulate Carnage. I can’t wait to be able to go on this journey which I’m sure will show us that, the only thing that’s stopping you from fulfilling your dreams, is yourself.
‘The Price Of Greatness, A Look Into The Misunderstood’ will premiere on YouTube soon!
