Darrell “The Arkutec” Murray is a Chicago-born artist. He performed as one half of the Hip Hop group Sonz of the Most High for more than 10 Years. The group released two albums, Shut Up and Listen and Hell, No We Won't Go!, five mixed tapes, and one EP. He has toured around the United States and has been overseas to the continent of Africa. The Arkutec’s first solo project entitled Voices N the Mirror is set for release in June of this year.
Darrell is passionate about creating a safe environment for children and families. In 2003 he was the innocent victim of gun violence; he survived multiple gunshot wounds to the legs, shoulder, and face at the age of 20. Rather than allowing that incident to defeat him, he started the Celebration of Life Foundation to encourage an end to violence.
