    Dean Chatham

    When it comes to lyrically propelled hip-hop, the music world has long awaited the silky smooth flow of Dean Chatham (born Jamerdon Dean). Just 21 years old from Buffalo, Chatham has made waves on the hip-hop scene.

    After releasing just two songs, he was asked to join the Buffalo Hip-Hop collective – Black Sol. Using smooth, witty, laid back (YET IN YOUR FACE) lyrics, Chatham became an immediate sensation within the Buffalo community. He soon gained prestigious recognition and was ranked fourth on the charts for ArtVoice’s “Music acts you must hear in 2015” list.
