Lyrrad started his music career working alongside the captivating electro-rap producer The Unknown DJ on the Techno Hop label. He helped provide production assistance on many classic cuts such as "808 Beats", "2030", and more importantly on "Let's Jam". Darryl Davis continued his association with Unknown DJ into the 90's lending a helping hand with the music on many of Unknown's side projects.

Aside from production, Lyrrad is more critically acclaimed for the various album cover artworks that has helped define the west coast electro era. The cover of the World Class Wreckin' Cru's "Surgery", "Juice", Unknown DJ's "808 Beats", and various other picture covers are all credited to Lyrrad. However, the graphics that graced the colorful cover of Unknown's "Let's Jam" is by far considered to be the mantelpiece in Darryl's array of works. The abstract drawing of a "DMX anti-graffiti" missile crashing into a brick wall with the Los Angeles city skyline draped in the background propel the album cover as possibly being one of the finest original renditions featured on any west coast hip-hop album cover.
