Be it on the mic, on the tables, or in the studio, former Brooklynite Anelia Lomsky has cemented a reputation for overshadowing her Austinite peers under the name Dama Nilz.
Her extended tenure in the birthplace of hip-hop had given the already-competitive Lomsky a considerable leg up in the rap game by the time she moved to the Live Music Capital, where she’s since been in a state of near non-stop hustle. And while you can’t overlook her take-no-guff code of conduct, Dama’s relentless flow, articulation, and depth are all decidedly buoyant over bombastic. After winning the 2019 “Rap for a Stack” contest, Dama Nilz was set to make yet another official return to SXSW, but…well…you know.
Festival news aside, Dama Nilz shared her seven-song full-length, Damanation, just a couple weeks back. So show Dama the love she deserves and work your way through Damanation starting with the album’s killer caboose, featuring fellow pop-R&B singer Azurah Vibez and produced by her Spy Coastal confederate DatBoyCraig, “All I”!
