Having the diverse sound that I have most people dont believe I'm from the small town of Cairo, GA. They say my music doesnt have a Dirty Souf vibe to it but it sounds great regardless.
Bio: In early 2001 Sterling Bell III who goes by the stage name of Damian Baxter began rapping with friends during and after school as a hobby. In 2006 Damian assertively became more aggressive about his approach into the music industry under the name of Jake Ro also and rapping along side his group Kreek Boyz. He then wanted to make his own beats for his own use and have his own defined sound. Doing so in 2008 he created "So Clean" a simple beat made in FL Studio. "The chorus was just something that fell into place while listening to the beat 3 times and looking at clothes on bbcicecream.com. Plus I had just bought my first pair of Bathing Apes. I just felt so clean. I sent the the recorded chorus to Kreek Boyz member Tyron Gilbert AKA Bone. Once he heard the track he fell in love with it and wanted to be on the record." After he changed his musical views he began to buy gear from the Guitar Center in Virginia Beach, VA and ran into Franz Verna, a musical genius who has mixed tracks for Joe, NSYNC, Teddy Riley and the greatest performer of all time Michael Jackson. Franz interested Damian in buying more sounds for his growing sound library. Soon Damian went overseas to work for contractors in Iraq and wasn't able to do his music as much. On his R&R vacation from Iraq he went on a shopping spree in Guitar Center where Franz helped him pick out a keyboard and this piece of equipment inflamed his creative spark. Through Damian's wife in 2009, he was contacted by a long time friend of her's named Kip Johnson who was interested in hearing his music. Kip liked what he heard and worked with him (management) until Damian moved back to his home town of Cairo, GA in 2010. Since being back in the south or "229" as he calls it, Damian came into contact with Elbert "ZockRock" Walker who owns and operates ZockRock Records. Elbert decided to sign Damian to his label after hearing a few of his songs and knowing he was a talented artist. A year passed while being on this label, the only thing that happened was a few tracks made and Damian was lied to about radio promotion and a meeting taking place in Atlanta with record promoters that never occurred. He broke ties with the label and went back to his original label 229Grind Entertainment and updated his original manager Kip Johnson on the stint that the staff over at Zock Rock Records had pulled. He decided that the only person that could market and promote his own music was himself with the help of a listening party and Kip.
