About Danny "D-Boy" Rodriguez
Danny "D-Boy" Rodriguez (born Daniel Dimitri Rodriguez November 10, 1967 in the Bronx, New York - died October 6, 1990 in Dallas, Texas, was a Christian rap artist.
Rodriguez was signed to Frontline Records, who released his debut album "Plantin' a Seed" in 1989. The album's lead single, "Pick Yourself Up", hit #8 on Christian radio charts. It was the only song D-Boy ever charted.
D-Boy was one of the first in CHH to demonstrate creative and complex sampling. D-Boy was gunned down while leaving his apartment early one morning. To this date no official ruling has been given in his death, although most believe it was in retaliation against D-Boy steering the young people away from the gangs.
