New Orleans, Louisiana, rapper/singer Damond Young has been building a lane all his own since his 2009 mixtape first hit the streets. The momentum he more recently gained with the release of his [official] debut album, Ahead Of Time, has set the stage for Damond to break into the next level. He’s looking to add his chapter to the historical legacy of innovators that have made New Orleans’ musical tradition a thing of legend in hip hop — and beyond.
The first single from his album, “Sugar,” with singer Jeanee Anise, already has well over a million spins on SoundCloud — and for good reason. The sexy, laid back vibes are infectious (to put it mildly). Check it out for yourself, and if you haven’t already, cop the whole album on Tidal.
