My most notable song to date is #Pregame featuring Chris D. (@TheReal_ChrisD) which has been played on independent stations and performed for hundreds.

My upcoming project is entitled, "Where the Cookies NSh*t?" and is to be released in Spring of 2013.


Feeling a bit camera shy


Born in Washington, DC to a single mother and a great family foundation of grandparents that offered an abundance of wisdom and integrity, Lamont I. Thompson aka Him Downstrz was formed. The name, derivative of the late great Bernie Mac's famous comedy bit "Kings of Comedy", it is his belief that laughter is the gatekeeper to the soul. Thus, when audiences hear the name, they are more inclined to listen to what else is being offered. As you peel the layers back and dig deeper into the artist, you'll find that the music is a product of a warm and thoughtful being that seeks to transform his situation through integrity and ambition, while surveying himself introspectively.

Influences include the mighty Mos Def, Stevie Wonder, Bob Marley, and Ray Charles among many others including but not limited to Jay-Z and 2Pac.
