Meet The Artist: September
MEET THE ARTIST
Every month we will have artists who interview on our radio show. Their music can be heard throughout our show. They are trying to move from the underground scene onto the big stage and we are providing an outlet to broadcast their music. Here are the month of September artists.
Hampton Lamar, 22, is from Mansfield, Texas. He is currently spreading his music throughout the DFW area and state of Mississippi while being a student on the Dean’s List at the University of Southern Mississippi. Hampton has released three singles this year, providing a hype song with "I Been". He slows it down with a smooth summer beat in "What's The Slide?" but shows off his singing ability in his recent release "See Me ft. Vince Ryouta". He plans to release two new singles this month and hopes his movement will shift today’s hip-hop community. You can find Hampton on Twitter @TheHamptonLamar.
Born in Pasadena, California, developed in Arlington, Texas, and broadcasted in Dallas, Dandii Sun is a one-man traveling act within himself. He truly skims the grey area between the dark expectations and shimmering unpredictability of the North Texas/ DFW hip hop uprising. Although fluent in the language of "song-write" he also finds solace in any and all aspects of art, ranging from painting and drawing to sculpting and creative writing, hence his six-part collective "Obey The Art". His most recent debut, "Tree Dancer," is the first of a three-part story focusing on mans' dependency of self communication, even if you must use a tree as a character to do so. We await the end of 2017 and beginning of 2018, as he has promised the release of new music, visuals, and all other things under his sun. Follow him @ObeyTheArt and be on the lookout for Dandii Sun.
