A rock star who happens to rap.
Anthemous has graced stages across the midwest as the frontman for a riprock (hip hop, rap, rock) band named DreamKillerUniversity.
Born Nick J Patterson, of Chicago, IL, Anthemous fostered his love of theatrics and music by performing both aspects in front of audiences for 15 years.
In 2017, Anthemous founded RapVeterans, an organization that focuses to empower unsigned artists in both monetization of internet streaming content, and touring tips specific to the hip hop and rap genre, including strategy, mindset training, tips and resources (by request), and networking and streaming unsigned hip hop from the ever growing national and international hip hop community.
With plans to execute a regional tour in the midwest in 2018, Anthemous is building consensus from venues and artists around a successful and live streamed documented DIY tour.
Anthemous, and his RapVeterans Information Arm, #RAPVETLIVE (a weekly live music, and hip hop politics show on facebook, every Sunday night @ 8pm cst), have joined forces with other quality live show hosts, Live Music Review, Street Sound Live, Team2Network, and Hip Hop Matters Magazine to create a full community of serious artists that are ready to take on the career defining steps of going on tour as a nationwide network builds underway, under the organization moniker, B.A.F.A. (By Artists For Artists).
Anthemous, is a spectacle. Upon the stage, his presence in front of a crowd is commanding yet kindred, with a powerful and clear voice, a passionate and decisive delivery, and an entertaining and high energy level experience, he is a member of an ultra-rare fraternity, a student of hip hop, and a master of ceremonies.
"Anthemous brings the difference from midwest hip hop artists, the balance where most perform over the full recording of their material, Anthemous hails from an approach to rap artistry that focuses on "spitting darts", or most commonly recognized as, raw, vocal presence over clean instrumental.
Anthemous has toiled diligently to create positive relationships with venues, artists, and fans across the nation, and has garnered a small but strong and growing interest in his live show platform.
