Dahand$um$ were born and raised in Brooklyn Newyork,where they became accustomed to the street life at a very young age.As they got deep into the streets they realized within them the potential to manifest greater fufillment in every area of their lives. The love of music was the only thing that stood a chance of them gaining a greater understanding of their unique talents.
Dahand$um$ have been making music since they were in elementary school,before making albums they were signed to Stone Production which was distributed by Geffen records.Stone production was once a known entity in the Chicago music scene making top 10 hits for Joe,Avant,etc.But when the Production company lacked strength protection,and direction,Dahand$um$ put their passion of music on hold and went on a paper chase grind that helped them to rediscover the wonder, the awe and the power available in their lives.That's where the inspiration for their name came from,They were the go to guys when there was a shipment to be made across the border."We were always classy with the the way we dressed and talked ,we had the attitude of the city but established rapport with southerners and the west coasters because of our frequent trips there"Dahand$um$. Dahand$um$ passion for music inspires creativity and insight, a direct link between art and life. "When one door closes another one opens ,we have been blessed to have traveled all over Africa,Asia,Europe, you name it,we’ve probably been there” all because our job took us there .says Gambell the beatsmith of the group.Their debut album "CLASSY" is a perfect example of who they are and where they have been. The album Fires the imagination by taking the long lost processes of lyricism out of the realm of the supernatural and places them in the domain of natural knowledge."This album's creativity was nurtured and respected,it was not forced ,it was an extension of our souls's need to express itself with landmarks of achievent in sight." says Dahand$um$.
