ABM: What is your Rap name? Tell us the story behind your hip-hop name?

NDawson: My name started off as NDND, it stood for “Never doubt Nehemiah Dawson”, someone was always throwing shade my way growing up as a kid, so a family member by the name of Hustle Man Benjamin gave me the name. Later down the line my homeboy Preston out of Seattle Washington said N Dawson out the blue one day, w and I ran with it.

ABM: Has anything happened in your life that led to the decision of becoming a musician?

NDawson: When I stated hanging out in the streets, my mom ask me what could she do to keep me in the house, most of my friends where gang banging and robbing, so she refinanced her house and got me my first piece of music equipment, I was 12.  I really just tried to work with every rapper i could find, but never worked out till years later.

ABM: Where are you from, and what was it like growing up there?

NDawson: I’m from sac town it was crazy growing up on 29st most of the time it was heavy drugs and trap houses every where. Having access to drugs and guns was unbelievable, not to positive, but I stayed out the way. I grew up in Sacramento California during the time when we had  the most  murder rate due to all the gang violence with the Crips and the Bloods and other gangs. Not to mention we had a chop shop across the street things were really fast growing up.
