Rules and Derek don’t go together. He would stink in the NBA. But that’s what makes him successful on our team. He started out like any kid growing up in the Detroit area listening to Motown, techno and Eminem, followed by artists like Jay-Z, Timbaland and Pharell Williams. “Each song is a totally different concoction of mashed-together genres. Chaos and deconstruction. No rules. Just music driven by pure, unadulterated emotion.” Fortunately for us, that chaos is something Derek successfully infuses in his music.
