Alan Ward is a rap/hip-hop artist from the United States specifically Milwaukee, WI. Ward began writing at the age of 12 and first started recording in high school. Formerly known as 'D. Gatz', Ward began rapping at parties and recording with a buddy/local rapper named 'Tony Freeloader' (now SvejiBoyz).


After appearing on a few tracks from Freeloaders debut mixtape Stone Table Summer (2015) in, Ward took a hiatus after high school to focus on collegiate endeavors, but never stopped writing music. While at school, he met a few other up-and-coming artists from around the country and recorded/connected with them but never released any music.


After getting his degree and spending years studying the game/industry from a far, Ward decided to finally follow his passion and pursue music. Dropping his first release, Joon EP , at the end of 2019 and two singles (FMB & Suzi Wu) right before 2020, Alan Ward is already starting to gain some buzz and is looking to solidify himself as legit hip-hop force.

He released his first official Mixtape 'Dgaf' in April 2020 which included the two previously released singles and five additional tracks with 2 features (Shad & ChessNotCheckers).


After this debut, Ward has seemed to find himself steering on the right path towards making this passion into a profession by landing several blog features and even signing to an independent label (Chess Club Records). 


His latest release 'Fashionable' has helped Ward continue to steadily gain recognition from major music outlets, labels and other buzzing artists around the globe.


Once several features he has with other artists/producers are released, Ward anticipates dropping another project sometime before 2021.
