From the gritty urban sprawl of Manchester, UK, emerges dead$tar—a trailblazing artist whose journey from beatmaker to lyrical luminary has set the underground scene ablaze. Initially crafting beats with the intention of staying behind the scenes, dead$tar was propelled into the vocal booth by peers who recognized a raw, untapped potential in his voice.
The first time he laid down vocals, a spark ignited. Writing and recording became more than just a process; it became a passion, an addiction, a newfound love that led him to perform with the collective Fifth Wall and, ultimately, to captivate audiences with his own solo performances.
For dead$tar, music is more than an art form; it’s a lifeline—an outlet that had been missing in his youth. As the beats flowed and the rhymes took shape, he discovered a community of souls resonating with his message, a collective heartbeat thumping to the rhythm of his words.
What sets dead$tar apart is his unorthodox approach to flow and lyricism. His intricate rhymes are laced with clever references that fly over the heads of the uninitiated, while his meaningful verses delve into topics rarely explored over the diverse selection of beats he employs.
Among the arsenal of sharp verses, one lyric stands as a stark emblem of his journey: “I’m the black sheep of my clique all this music, they say they want my lifestyle til they see the way i’m moving.” It’s a raw reflection of the isolation and misunderstanding that often accompanies a life dedicated to music.
dead$tar’s ambitions are crystal clear: a consistent stream of 1,000 monthly listeners, an album resonating with 750 streams per track, a quintet of music videos, and the electric energy of three sold-out shows—all by the year’s end.
With the calendar marked for February 9th, dead$tar is poised to drop a single that’s set to be his most polished work to date. Accompanied by a music video, this release is just the prelude to an album that’s slated to shake the foundations between February and March.
