Hip Hop Isn't Dead... It Lives In The HOOD

Recently 20 year-old rapper Luh Dino released his new project PHP: Prayer Heals Pain.  Assisted by Toosi, Vedo and SlimeLife Shawty, his latest project tackles the themes of pain, healing and redemption throughout the album.

Inspired by his own life experiences after facing a tumultuous 2020 and 2021, Luh Dino, touches on a host of issues ranging from love and relationships to  almost losing his mom and his aunt, two of his biggest inspirations, to COVID-19.

Like a true artist, Luh Dino has turned the pain into heartfelt emotional music and you can see him expressing those feelings across the 15-track album that has been receiving critical acclaim from blogs across the globe.

"Everything in the project is what I've gone through or experienced or seen someone close to me go through. This project is my milestone and the start of a new me. It's a lot of songs that cater to women because I love women. There are a lot of R&B vibes but I also have turn-up strip club bangers as well," Luh Dino said.

On this project Luh Dino's R&B side continues to shine as he delivers melodic rap-fused tracks that inspire and evoke emotions. One of the standout songs from the project is, “Lil Thottie," currently a Top 30 Radio record and in the Top 15 countdown on Sirius XM's Hip Hop Nation.

Needlesstosay streaming has also been a positive for Luh Dino who recently surpassed over 9 million streams cumulatively.



About Luh Dino: At just 20 years old, Atlanta born and raised artist Luh Dino is an innovative rap artist ready to take the music industry by storm with his melodic voice that expresses love, pain, and motivation.

Luh Dino's work ethic and his exceptional talent has landed him songs featuring hometown legends like Lil Keed, Coca Vango, Paperlovee, and more. Drawing inspiration from NBA Youngboy, Roddy Ricch, and Lil Baby, Luh Dino merges classic rap lyricism with a knack for melodies and hooks.

Because of the melodic nature and emotionally-charged lyrics, he has attracted a dedicated fanbase, heavily made up of women, who are consistent supporters of Luh Dino as his fanbase continues to skyrocket with each release.

His stage name Luh Dino is inspired by his Arabic name, Shamsud-Din (pronounced Sham-sa-deen). His step father called him Shamsud-Dino, which turned into Dino as an endearing nickname and later became the name of the artist we know today. He currently has a top 30 radio record with "Lil Thottie", a single which will appear on PHP. 

Luh Dino has a rich performance history, having opened up for notable artists like Lil Keed, 2 Chainz, Megan Thee Stallion, Moneybagg Yo, and many more. He is no stranger to large crowds, and performed for over 25,000 people on "Hot 107.9 Block Party Birthday Bash" and a crowd of over 30,000 people at "Streetz 94.5 Streetz Fest."

In February 2020, Luh Dino was featured on the DTLR Step Show College Tour along with fellow 300 Entertainment artists. This year, he will embark on another College Tour following the release of PHP. 

His song "Double It" featuring fellow Atlanta rapper Lil Keed was featured on BET JAMS and was in radio rotation on Streetz 94.5 in their home city of Atlanta. Luh Dino is signed to an independent record label (Kuhnsinity Records) and is distributed by 300 Entertainment, where he sits on a roster with some of hip hop's hottest artists.
