TAMPA, Fla., Dec. 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- For three weeks in a row, rapper L.D. has been sitting near the top of Billboard's Heatseakers charts with "The Crossover." The week of December 16 saw the EP at #6; the album was still in the top 10 of the following week's chart, proving that L.D. and his energetic melodies are here to stay. More information about the 25-year-old Tampa native who now calls Atlanta home is available on his TVM.Bio page at https://tvm.bio/iamldmusic/.
Demonstrating coast-to-coast appeal, L.D. has also earned the following rankings on the Nielsen SoundScan Charts:
- Top New Artists #6
- Current Physical Albums #159
- Current R&B/Hip-Hop Albums #41
- Top Albums in Atlanta #9
- Top Albums in Dallas-Fort Worth #18
- Top Albums in Los Angeles #173
- Top Albums in Oklahoma City #65
Music came naturally to the young L.D. At age 5, he began vocal lessons. Throughout childhood, he continued to expand his sonic horizons. L.D.'s pursuit of numerous musical and creative outlets paved the way for today's breakout success.
Looking ahead, L.D.'s motivation is to rise to the top of the ranks in contemporary hip-hop, while also carving out a soundscape that's uniquely his own. "The Crossover" is a bold move in that direction, showcasing the rapper's impeccable delivery and flow. L.D. takes his inspiration from Atlanta's dynamic and nationally respected music scene. He also counts Lil Wayne, Jay Z, Biggie and Tupac as some of his most important musical influences during his formative years. L.D. publishes his music under the independent label NoLogo Records.
Known for never writing down his lyrics, L.D. is an equally talented audio engineer, which no doubt adds to the production value of "The Crossover." However, the rapper's talent extends well beyond the studio walls. L.D. has previously performed at such high-profile events as Orlando's Independence Fest and Hot 107.9's Birthday Bash Block Party. He's been the opener for household names like Ace Hood, Rick Ross, Soulja Boy and 2 Chainz. With singles licensed by MTV and today's tremendous success on the charts, the future is looking great for L.D.
