UPDATE: The “Elevation” record has been awarded “Hip Hop Song of the Year” at the Madison Area Music Association Awards (MAMA) and nominated for a Wisconsin Area Music Industry Award (WAMI). — Anthony Lamarr is about much more than the music. However spiritual and uplifting the singer’s music is, his actions in the real world are even more powerful. Here, the artist teams up with Smokes, myself and DLO The Iceman on the mic to create a conscious record, directed at those caught up in problematic situations (December 21, 2012). Grammy-nominated drummer Joey Banks laid the drums on “Elevation”. His son Trevor Banks shot the visual.
