The hardest working woman in hip hop is right here in town and all of Austin wins! After years of struggling, Brooklyn-born Anelia Lomsky AKA Dama Nilz began performing in the NYC underground hip hop circuit back in 2007. In the eleven years since, her idiosyncratic hardcore lyrical style has captivated listeners and earned her a spot on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, mentions in Vibe and Hip Hop DX magazine, and tour appearances with the likes of Ghostface Killah. With a few albums and international tours under her belt, Dama Nilz continues to exert her influence in hip hop as a DJ, producer, music video director, and of course lyricist.
Tonight she kicks off the first Belly party – paying tribute to the 1998 Hype Williams film of the same name. Dama Nilz will be DJing and hosting the Belly Party 10pm tonight at Plush, where if hours of dancehall, latin and hip hop isn’t enough for you, you can help yourself to free empanadas and Tekken. For a sneak peak at the sincerity and talent Dama Nilz brings to the table, check out a previously unheard single produced by Belly Party co-host Craig MLK – “Ceiling Fan Spins”.
