About

Introducing the versatile artist, Dior Worthy, aka D.Worthy, born on November 4th, 1991, in Cleveland, Ohio. From the energetic streets of Cleveland to the artistic landscapes of Vancouver, Washington, his journey has sculpted the diverse tapestry of his artistry.

Enrolling at Eastern Washington University in 2010, Worthy founded the “Blow Up Kids,” a collective, record label, and media company, fueled by creative synergy with friends Marcus Matthews and Kyle Hinshaw.

Inspired by icons like Tupac Shakur and Pharrell Williams, Worthy’s music transcends genres, weaving hip hop, soul, pop, electro, indie rock, and gospel. With nine albums and over 100 songs, he has amassed thousands of downloads and over 3 million streams on “Anticipation” under “D.Worthy.”

A global performer, Dior Worthy graced stages in Paris, London, Los Angeles, and New York, sharing platforms with Nipsey Hussle and Post Malone. Beyond music, he navigates the fashion world, attending shows like Louis Vuitton and earning features in Vogue and GQ.

More than an artist, Worthy mentors and advocates for youth empowerment, spreading messages of self-love in schools. Breaking stereotypes, he’s a West Coast trailblazer, catching the eye of icons like ASAP Rocky and leaving an indelible mark on the intersection of music and fashion.
