GET SOME FEATURED ARTIST: DAS LEUNE
AND…WE…ARE…BACK!!!! And excited to bring to you another dope feature. We have Das Leune to share with everyone today and since this is the GET SOME blog you will not be disappointed. If you were in a room full of artists out in New Mexico Das Leune would most certainly stand out, to both the eye and to the ear. His style is all his own and full of pieces of intriguing character and his music is full of creative flow that could only come from him! He shares his gifts in a truly creative fashion, literally, figuratively, and metaphorically. After meeting with him there is no doubt in my mind that everything he creates is from the truest form of himself. Let your eyes continue to flow down the page and get into the GET SOME in Das Leune!!!
Basically I just dont think my government name is fitting for the stuff I push as far as music or creativity. I couldn’t get comfortable with the thought of another Lil, Young, whatever. It’s just three languages that can be made into the phrase “That’s the one”. On a hidden meaning tip..haa.
When did you discover your passion for music?
A: First time I can remember knowing music was a passion and a life changing method was when I was crazy young, My parents were fighting and on the record player was “I’ll be around” by The Spinners. It hit harder than the convo and I knew Music was forever important and real.
What advice do you have for anyone looking to follow a similar path in life?
Support! Its rough sometimes getting folks to understand each and every Convo/”Click” helps us build more exposure and worth huge. Word of mouth is key and if we can share creativity we can build empires together. Just off of support and art! Unity and support will make this path much easier in my opinion.
Tell us about any obstacles that you have ran into on your journey as a hip hop artist.
How did you get past it?
Well I recently moved to Portland Oregon which is really far from the local support that I got out in Albuquerque NM. It’s rough to not be physically around that energy our team always has. I wouldn’t at all say im passed it, but I keep in mind its temporary and continue to push myself to keep up. Shout out to The Rockmore Foundation
Its an organization Gary Black and I started with another neighborhood friend Archie Richardson A.K.A Nova. We just had the idea that we can try and showcase what we think is cool that came from our communities and help those folks doing it. We are kinda like a Resource agency at times too. We Rap, film, take photos make beats and do shows. We Rockmore. For Realo.
What is one of your most exciting memories so far since becoming Das Leune?
Can I name like 5?! 1. Creating Rockmore 2. Meeting Mos Def, Dom Kennedy and Fashawn 3. Getting an awesome manager 4. Proving success is the greatest revenge. 5. Showcasing mi vida loca.
What does GET SOME mean to you?
It means to work hard to get what you deserve! Its like that saying “Early bird gets the worm”. If there are a flock of “Early birds” if you don’t get some you get none. If your perspective is GET SOME before you go in, You’re mostly likely to get alot.. with that being said go ahead ROCKMORE and GET SOME! Bowwwwwwwwww.
There it is right there , in front of your faces beaming into your eye sockets and settling into your brains. That is the GET SOME. Exuding passion in all he does, taking the necessary steps he needs to in order to obtain the goal! Even if it means moving away. His energy is good and watching him and speaking with him certainly brings inspiration!! We are proud to give Das Leune the GET SOME stamp of exellence. Are you thirsty for more???
