We had the good fortune of connecting with Andre Damar and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Andre, what do you attribute your success to?
Persistence. Pushing through when you know things weren’t or isn’t going the way you envisioned. Knowing when to change things up to get to chapter in your career, rather that’s your look, or your scenery.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I’m a different rapper when it comes to my experience and how I relate it to my music. I’m most proud of my first real project “Top Drawer.” It was my first real project and it showed most of my fans from the beginning this shit was real. It took a lot struggling to get to where I am today. I once lost my phone with my entire album for “Blue Dodger Fitted” in it. It really set me back a year on that project and killed all my momentum I built off the Top Drawer project. My manager was hot but we had to go back to the drawing board and get through it. I’ve learned that consistency is everything and coming up in a game where pure talent isn’t judged the way in the music game as a athlete in sport. In the music industry it’s more about how much people like you or how much another person say listen to him he’s dope. I’ve learned that consistency will help me get to that level or status I want tot be at. I want the world to know that Andre Damar make dope music and you should give me some streams.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Well I’m from LA but I’m currently in Berlin Germany and I’m still learning where to go out here. With Covid going on out here everything has been closed down the past few months I’ve been out here. But I would say lets hit the train and go somewhere. If I was in LA I’ll say lets hit Inglewood go get some tacos from Taco Mell, or go get some fries from Mr. Fries Man. Other spots hit too like Roscoe’s, but most people know about that spot.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My manager Fontae Quinn has really been there over the past few years helping me as I pursue this music career. There’s been a lot of up and downs along the way, but things are starting to look up and he’s been there kind of like a front line soldier.
