Dame 55

Hip hop, electro, grunge, and pop -- all that and more make up the sound and style of Dame 55, a 23 year-old-rapper/fashion designer who brilliantly stands out above the rest as an epiphany. A native of Cincinnati, Ohio, Dame grew up listening to jazz and ragtime music, and was influenced by many of the hip hop greats such as Slick Rick, the Pharcyde, and RZA. With a calling towards the world of fashion, the next step for Dame was venturing to Los Angeles, where he studied at the Fashion Institute of Design Merchandise. During this time of transition, Dame was inevitably impacted by the indie rock culture that surrounded him, and began listening to the unique sounds of Lykke Li, 1950's Rockabilly music, and more. A transformation was well on the way. Dame is now a self-proclaimed Stupid3ous Dork, a movement of trend-setters who are dedicated to making a difference in music, fashion, art, and any other creative outlet that crosses their path. Having performed with the likes of Lil Jon, Ludacris, Nelly, Wale, YelaWolf, Chiddy Bang, and more, the world of hip hop has welcomed Dame's unparalleled sound, and it will never be the same again. Making strides to fulfill his intent on being the œvoice of this generation,� Dame is well on his way while presenting us with the œrebellious� side of underground hip hop that demands attention and recognition. Currently working with renown producer Boys Noize, there will soon be an uprising of Stupid3ous Dorks around the world.
