Quadruple Threat Damez Weighs In On the Impact of Gun Violence, Police Brutality and the Politics of Being LGBT in the Hip Hop Community

Hailing from Atlanta, Damez is a rapper, singer, dancer, songwriter, and a rising voice in the Hip Hop & LGBT community. Primarily rap/hip-hop and R&B, he showcases his talents and versatility through an eclectic catalog of self-penned songs and choreography-heavy visuals.

From his childhood, he has been through an unfortunate series of events such as the divorce of his parents and the horrific murder of his brother at the tender age of 17 (Google: “Justice For Ryan Henderson”). Damez found refuge in music by independently recording music and performing at live shows. He has since released a number of projects and singles globally on iTunes, Amazon and streaming platforms since his debut EP arrived via SoundCloud in 2014.

Being black and LGBT in today’s challenging society has not always been an easy road for him, but he’s channeled the unique intersectionality of his life experiences in his music and hopes to be a voice for unique people everywhere.

The Hype Magazine got Damez to weigh in on a few things…tune in!
