Lamar DBL Lawson, an energetic R&B singer/ songwriter, was born on June 17, 1988 in Southeast Washington D.C. Hes been working tirelessly to perfect his craft. DBL was born into a life of music. He found his passion for music at the young age of five. His father, James Lawson, was a professional drummer for the legendary Motown records. DBL grew up singing in his church choir and school chorus. While in the church choir he sang numerous solos because the director said he had that certain something. In his school chorus he sang the leading parts at concerts that the chorus would host. DBL also sang in bands, Justice and NIV. Both were gospel groups. Justice was a hip-hop group of Kettering Baptist Church, in
Upper Marlboro Maryland. They performed concerts at many churches across
Maryland and parts of D.C. Justice later became NIV. NIV was a gospel Go-Go group
in which DBL was the lead singer. NIV also performed also at many churches
across Maryland and D.C. NIV hit its peak when they were asked to be the main
band at a Christian convention. DBLs soulful vocals kept the audience glued to
the performance and on their feet. As DBL got older he found that he would like to his career in music more seriously. He then began recording numerous songs and putting them on Myspace. No quicker than he could put the songs up he had a buzz, which landed him a manager with BSM Music Group. It seemed as though DBL was on his way. With the power of BSM and the CEO of Knockout Entertainment, Mike B, anything seemed possible. Then, ties between Mike B and BSM went sour. It seemed as though the powerhouse that DBL was apart of was drifting away from his grasp. Still, loyal to his manager DBL stayed with BSM making hit songs such as Sweat, Dreamin, Truth Revealed, and circles. His deal with his manager went sour. This did not stop DBL. He quickly regrouped and began working with the nationally acclaimed manager Mike B of Knockout Entertainment. Being inducted into the Knockout family also put him in a family with a large array of different artist. Some artists include Shannon Briggs, Carl Thomas, Lil-Wayne, Plies, Bow Wow, Katt Williams, Aj Johnson, and Kanye West. Once he hooked back up with Mike B his career began to take off.
