ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: Stadium P
Every now and then, there comes along an artist that has a peculiar mix of the unknown and the familiar. This precise mixture comes in the form of the energetic artist known as Farren “StadiumP” Perry. Hailing from the small town of Harleyville, South Carolina, Stadium began his journey in as a rapper at a very pivotal point in his life. Growing up around violence and drugs was commonplace in his household until his grandparents took him in and removed him from that harsh environment at an early age. Stadium found away to channel that reality into his music. At the age of 19, he lost his mother to her long battle wit the drug crack cocaine. This pain and influence is what gives Stadium P an edgeover his competition in music. Those qualities turned into a thriving hunger to be a more well trained and successful entertainer. Stadium P’s Street Album entitled, “IND2” produced by Dj Burn One was released this past spring powered by Platinum Woodwurk Entertainment. With the support from his hometown of Harleyville, SC, Stadium P is on a pace to gain the respect of the music industry. The lead single,“Deep End” on "Independence Day 2" has already caught the ear of key industry veterans and dj’s across the country. Global Spin nominee and SEA Award winner for #1 Dj in The South, DJ B-Lord, has already shown support and stamped “Deep End” as the club smash of the year.
