Let's say -hypothetical- this channel blows up. It gets to, who knows like 40 or 50 thousand subscribers, whatever, just gets all crazy like that.

The Drunken Peasants. It's an interesting thing. It's something I kinda want to do with my own podcast, but maybe a little different obviously. I don't want to rip them off. But yeah on the surface, I like those dudes.

— During a Q&A in 2016.[3]

Derrick Pilot is literally some black guy that happens to be a popular YouTuber. He has described himself as a social commentator, free-speech advocate, failed musician, and a mediocre gamer.[4] Under the appropriate handle of SomeBlackGuy, he produces a variety of videos giving a comedic take on news and politics. He has a side channel, Derrick Blackman, where he uploads a variety of other content such as music reviews,[5] voice acting,[6] and gaming videos.[7] His superpower is being black and still being able to see with complete transparency the bullshit of Black Lives Matter and the radical left.

History

Derrick was born in Los Angeles and raised in Inglewood for some time. After his father passed away, he moved with his mother to Orange County.[8] When he was young, he went to a private school for some time and took an early liking to computers and music.[9] He has said that he really got into metal music from listening to the soundtrack of Mortal Kombat.[10] He aspired to be a hip-hop artists and would often spend hours trying to work on his lyrics, which he in retrospect said amounted to a bunch of bullshit by writing about things that he never actually experienced.[11] Since the internet was crap and he found most maintrain hip-hop around the time to be underwhelming, he became more invested in metal again.[12] He eventually joined a deathcore metal band as a drummer with some friends, We Are The End.[13]

After some time he left the band and pursued some other projects and would change his alias constantly.[14] For a while he was set on moving out to Europe,[15] including potentially France,[16] but it didn't work out so he instead moved to Arizona to get his shit together.[17] After it didn't work out, he moved back to California where he was inspired by a roomate to join the music industry again.[18] After that didn't work out, he hit pretty hard times during the end of 2015 and sold off a lot of his shit to make it by.[19] He first began making videos for YouTube using only his mobile phone and he gained a sizable following, thanks to support from fans he was able to get some proper equipment.[20] He considers Sargon of Akkad to be an inspiration for his channel.[21]

On Drunken Peasants

His first appearance was during the video, You Might be a Liberal if..., played during episode 354.

He made a proper guest debut during episode 356, where they introduced him and the idea behind his channel to the audience and also briefly talked about how his side channel had just recently been hacked, though YouTube gained control of it they hadn't even given it back because they are impossible to work with. He was present for the first edition of Florida or Africa, where he tied with Ben for second place. They talked about his appearance in the video mentioned above from episode 354, to which Derrick explained his reasoning for appearing in the video and how it was basically to help out a friend where he himself wasn't particularly invested beyond that. They moved into DP Action News and eventually moved onto a clip talking about the potential impeachment of Trump. Ben asked Derrick about Trump and he revealed his opinion is pretty similar to TJ's own thoughts.

They made sure to keep him on after The Break, as TJ wanted him to comment with them a video talking about the "racially-insensitive" history of WWE from ADoseOfBuckley. They then introduced him to Corpse Midget, where he was dropping a diss track that Derrick pointed out had horrible audio quality. He was also shown a rap against pre-marital sex featuring Freddy and Jason. They played a pro-GOP video presented by a black person that totally wasn't pandering, so Ben joke that Derrick should declare DP the number one show for all black people. They further asked him about his opinion of Tommy Sotomayor, who had recently asked Derrick to appear on this show, though he himself had little opinion on Tommy being unfamiliar with his content. They decided to show him the grapefruit video from episode 355, since it was such a legend and he had no context. Before wrapping up the show, they thanked him and mentioned his channel once again.
