Daniel “Mr. Talented” Tolbert II was born and raised on the south side of Chicago. Known for being a jack-of-all-trades, Mr. Talented has performed through various mediums from a very young age. Beginning at age 6, he honed his lyrical talents well into his high school and college years. A true purist when it comes to lyrics and Hip-Hop, in 2013 he adopted the additional moniker “Danny BARZ”, after the slang term meaning insightful, clever lyrics.
Danny BARZ has been seen around the city performing in dance battles, concerts, and theatrical productions. He is perhaps best known for his involvement in the hit play I Still Love H.E.R. (atributetohiphop). Having teamed up with Reflective Music, Mr. Talented is ready to give the world something they have yet to see. As a vocalist, rapper, songwriter, producer, dancer, choreographer, and actor, Mr. Talented is the urban Renaissance man.
