Bio

DaLink is originally from and grew up in the musically influential streets of College Park, Georgia. He began to rap amongst his peers at the early age of 10. In middle school, he teamed up with a childhood friend to form a rap duet called The City Boyz. At the age of 13, he opened shows for DJ Smurf, Kizzy Roc, and 8 Ball & MJG. He performed at Atlanta clubs in front of venue filled crowds. When he turned 14 he began attending Benjamin Banneker High School in College Park, Georgia. Every day before class and during lunch, DaLink wrote songs and worked with rappers/ schoolmates such as Lil Weavah (A-Town Records) and T-Rock, formerly of the group Three Six Mafia on the Hypnotize Minds record label. Benjamin Banneker alumni also include artists such as Ludacris (Disturbing Tha Peace), Chris Sellers (of the group Another Bad Creation), Yung Joc (Bad Boy), and Akeni Jeffery (a local dj of Hot 107.9 in Atlanta) just to name a few.
After graduating from high school DaLink became inner-connected with several members of Ludacris’ Disturbing Tha Peace family. DaLink used this opportunity to observe and learn more about the music business from an insider’s point of view. By using his networking skills, DaLink began to work alongside many of the same talented artists and producers that contributed to Ludacris’ multiplatinum success. In 2005, he was featured on “4IZE: best of the best DTP mixtape”, where he was able to display his skills amongst the ranks of some of the industries heaviest hitters. Soon after he recorded a song with 4IZE entitled “Problems” that made its way overseas and landed on Amsterdam’s Royal Radio top 10 most requested list for 12 weeks in a row. This song also held down the number one requested spot for over 10 weeks consecutively. DaLink’s crossover appeal stretched even further when he was featured on American Idol finalist Dianna Degarmo’s single entitled “Play It Right”. Through an array of unrestricted, unorthodox beats, DaLink tapped into his hidden abilities and applied all of his prior influences in music to his current style, which elevated him to a higher level giving him an understanding of the music industry that he needed. He has since reached even higher levels in his abilities and laid his pen and pad to rest, choosing not to write anymore and to rely solely on his mind, heart, and imagination.
DaLink is a star who has been waiting for his opportunity to shine and make history. Over the years DaLink has developed a fan base that has been anxiously anticipating his first mainstream album. He refuses to categorize himself as a local rapper, but will never forget where he came from, making music that people can enjoy and relate to all over the world.
DaLink's highly recognizable voice, explosive energy, and his ability to maintain his southern slang while also being considered as a lyricist makes him stand out in the crowd. DaLink is currently signed to an independent label called Elan Music and is awaiting his first worldwide release scheduled to drop the summer of 2010.
