Albany, GA born and Huntsville, AL raised are the first locations found on Digital Native3 Culture’s flagship artist Translee’s birth-rap certificate. With his talents currently in Atlanta, GA, Translee is signed to independent label, DNC [Digital Nativ3 Culture].
As a starving artist and college student at the same-damn-time, Translee met Chris Hunter- manager and CEO of DNC in college where they became roommates. Upon graduation, the neo music business hopefuls migrated to Hot-lanta in hopes of learning the music business to officially pop off Translee’s music career… the smart way. Shortly after, their efforts were noticed by Mr. Collipark who took them under his wing after becoming very interested in Translee’s music.
“He gave me an incredible opportunity to have my voice heard because he saw I wasn’t like other artists. I had a different grasp on reality and the people really connected to it.”
Translee’s 4th solo project “Cultur3 Junky” is set to sail for Summer 2014. Production props point to none other than DNC’s own, Todd Marshall. Alongside the accelerated amount of underground ears pointed to his music, Translee aims to change the perspective of Hip Hop music coming from the South. “Sometimes I think the South gets a bad rap because it’s so club driven, but everyday ain’t the same, sometimes you want to talk about God, sometimes you want to talk about drugs, sometimes you want to talk about love.” With change constantly in mind and success in his heart, Translee proves to audiences everywhere that he embodies the change he wants to see in Hip Hop.
