The music industry is a tough little nut to crack, yet Damon Fletcher has absolutely crushed it over the pandemic, of all things! That's right, Damon seized the opportunity with both hands and shook it until a world-class track came out.
Right now, he's dominating the music scene with his rapping and acclaim from a whole army of mainstream artists. So, what's the commotion, and how did he find himself with so much notoriety while being stuck indoors?
Ripping up the clock and turning back the clock to May 2020, we're all trapped like hamsters. People were busy doing nothing, and the government were printing money like they were running out of paper. Pondering how to fill your rice bowl and contemplating how many pushups you could do was amazingly popular. No one cared about music, new films, or how to get famous.
Damon thought differently and saw an opportunity, while others were fearful of pouncing on stardom without any contention. So, he covered the entire works. Created all his own work, wrote it, got a collaboration together, produced the video, and featured front and center in it.
Damon was inspired by his idol Usher and released his first track and music video, 'Hustle with a Purpose.' It was made in collaboration with The CrushBoys and was an instant hit. Frankly, this was like shooting fish in the barrel at that time as there wasn't anything else on. That said, the quality was so great that not only did his first attempt at hitting the big-time rack up 400,000 views on YouTube, but the feedback got him noticed.
Let's not forget that getting any views on YouTube is a major feat as it's a platform that is seldom interested in making the public aware of new video creators. Butamazingly and against the odds, everything went silky smooth, and Damon got his views and got them fast.
A captive audience and a high-quality production got Fletcher the praise of the music community!
