BDaMan (born Bryce Foster), is a young, up and coming hip-hop/spoken word artist from Minneapolis, Minnesota who commonly raps with his music group, New Life and with his older stepbrother, B.Allen as S.O.S. (Soul of Swag). To stand out from other up and coming rappers, he raps three sub-styles of hip-hop: Alternative Hip-Hop (a use of a fusion of alternative rock sampled instrumentals with hip-hop), Rock Rap (a use of classic to modern rock sampled instrumentals with hip-hop) and Jazz Rap (a use of all types of jazz instrumentals with hip-hop). BDaMan started rapping in 2004 when he heard his other friends rapping. He decided he wanted to try it too, so he started freestyling at school and making CDs. When he got to high school, he got lots of criticism about his rapping, but he managed to use it to get better, which made his peers at school respect him more. BDaMan always looks for ways to transcend into new types of music and new ways to present himself to people. With high hopes, big creativity and a new strive for lyrical charisma; the future looks bright for BDaMan.
