LDM Grand is a rapper/ producer born and raised in the Buffalo, New York area. He has gained recognition with songs such a "Cold" (The Unofficial Buffalo Bills Anthem)and the single of the year award nominated "KickDrum" (93.7 WBLK Unsigned Hype). As a youngster he was introduced to Hip Hop by his uncles, who lived the new culture as break dancers, deejays and true fans. He sites Hip Hop greats Run-DMC, Eric B & Rakim and Slick Rick as some of the early influences that he can remember.

By the time he reached his early teenage years L.D.M. was working in the studio, rhyming along with producing for other up and coming artists in his area. Today, he works closely with R&B/Soul singer Beka. He is also one half of the Soul/Hip Hop group "The Elite". Follow the movement @ldmgrand and vote for his song UpState Anthem right here.
