The second Installment to our "CDR Presents" series, we bring you Cali's own Diz Gibran.

We caught up with him in NYC backstage at S.O.Bs, it was a great night considering the likes of Pac Div, Mickey Factz, U-N-I, and other CDR alum were in one spot performing. We took the oppurtunity to shoot the second artist in our CDR Presents series with Diz Gibran, because "CDR Presents" is more personal than our in-studio interviews, its a conversation if you want to call it that, except Im holding a camera lol, but for our fans it helps you to connect a little more with artists than you normally could listening to the sometimes structured radio interview. Without further ado; CDR Presents to you...Diz Gibran.
