Hailing from the gritty, poverty stricken streets of America's capitol, 24 year old Quisharn "Baby Sharn" Hamilton brings more than just talent to the hip hop game; she brings authenticity. In this captivating release titled Keep DC Alive, Baby Sharn paints a vivid picture of the unparalleled culture of Washington DC and its surrounding metropolitan areas.
The Washington, DC native teamed up with hometown’s super producer Judah to create a song that calls attention to the city’s well-known history of drug dealing, corrupt politics, lack of acceptance in the music industry and overall way of life. With clever lyrics over monumental chords, Baby Sharn also speaks to stereotypes created by other cities on the outside looking in.
Baby Sharn chants “Keep DC Alive” in the hook bringing an underlying awareness to the pride that the people in DC carry despite the fact that death is at an all time high due to senseless violence, an alarming AIDS epidemic, or simply in failed attempts at typical day-to-day survival. Judah delivers with his sound so soulful yet gritty, making this production catchy enough to capture the attention of anyone who hears it. This is the first single release from the highly anticipated Sallie Mae EP slated for release on May 24th, 2011.
