Dee.Am is a rap artist who originally hails from Ladysmith in the KZN province. He started out by memorising his favourite hip hop songs before venturing into emceeing at the age of 14. Influenced heavily by rapper DMX he would often imitate the latter and as a result adopted the moniker through his friends.
He decided to drop the 'X' subsequently and create the acronym 'Dee.Am' which stands for Defiant Exuberant Extreme Articulate Musician. Arriving in Johannesburg in 2008 to study at the University of Johannesburg Dee.Am seized the opportunity to also pursue his dreams.
He has performed on Metro FM's Rap Activity Jam hosted by Oskido and showcased his rapping skills. He also took his bars to YFM's Siz n Scoop where he demonstrated why he should be considered a force to to be reckoned with. In 2016 he particated at a 'Freestyle Friday' competition, in Newtown Johannesburg, where he obliterated fellow rappers vying for the number one spot.
He emerged victorious and was crowned the Freestyle Friday champ. Apart from open mic sessions and gigs Dee.Am also spends time in the studio.
Mulambo Media became his home after forging a good working relationship with owner/producer Stan Mulaudzi. The chemistry between the artist and producer is undeniable.
Dee.Am is currently working on new material to distribute to lovers of good meaningful hip hop.
