Pamela is a Hip Hop song by Hunnaband Chris (20), a Mexican-American artist who lives at the United States. The song has gained massive play on social media, amassing over 17k plays on SoundCloud. Before tackling the main question, "who is Pamela?" let's first get to know who Hunnaband Chris is.
ABOUT HUNNABAND CHRIS
"I grew up in the South Bay region of Los Angeles California. I moved to Phoenix, Arizona when I was a kid"
Passion for music
"I always loved music as a young kid and I started rapping at the age of 11, free styling almost every day whenever I got the chance. On the way to school, on the bus...I would actually write raps in class instead of taking notes. All the time. My passion for music especially hip hop grew"
His unique music style
"If you check my music out, my style is unique throughout my songs. The reason being I grew up listening to all sorts of genres of music. Music is another language for me. I started writing songs at a very young age and got the hang of song structure and flow. I believe I have a new style that is unique and stands out in hip hop and music in general. 'Hand me any beat and I will make it a hit!'".
"I always wanted to record and pursue my music but never knew how to fully start. In my teen years I had some heavy major life shifts that affected my growth. I went through a lot of struggles. It was until when I turned 19 that I realized I was going to make music and chased this passion of mine 100%."
"Right now I'm working a serving job along with other side hustles while trying to generate money for my music and be consistent with music. It's a ton of work but worth it. I'm a huge believer in chasing your goals. We only have one shot at life and I don't want to regret not taking any risks".
Who is Pamela?
"That's something I just want to leave the listeners to wonder...or if they can relate to Pamela or know someone like her then enjoy the song...obviously Pamela is a girl".
Well, from the song it is clear that Pamela is 'bad', 'lit' and you better 'not look into her eyes'.
"..the song had to be a story with a strong flow, hook, verse etc. It had to be catchy too. Something people can dance too".
Another song worth checking out (so is every other song because they are hits) is ‘Double Cup Down The Free Way’. In his own words, "that one is a whole story bro, I was driving 30 min to my homie’s apartment to record that. Double Cup is one of my favorites".
ABOUT HIS MUSIC
Music and money
Chris confirmed that he makes money from music. When asked to divulge excact figures this was his response: "nah not at the moment TBH...maybe once I get bigger haha"
"Yes, I'm working on getting all my music on all streaming platforms very soon. A few weeks max. Along with music videos."
Famous artist he would like to work with
"I'd like to work with Future, Travis Scott and Drake. There's a lot of artist I'd like to work with. These artist would be crazy to work with".
"My biggest sacrifice has to be my mental health. This is a lot of work and I've been putting in a lot of work forgetting I need to balance myself. That's something I'm trying to work on. It's hard when I have a vision in my head and that's all I run towards...but enjoying myself without making music once in a while is important."
"I want my music to touch people. I want my music to entertain people and distract them from this world for a few minutes. I want them to realize anything is possible. Everything was impossible until someone made it possible. To chase their dreams and put in the work. I want them to feel my energy and my passion. To not listen to anyone but themselves."
If anything, Hunnaband Chris' career is on an upward trend. There is no use in trying to deny his impeccable rap skills, flow and an ear for catchy songs. He leaves us with no choice but to support him at all costs. Go to SoundCloud and YouTube and play his tunes. May you also do the same when he embarks on all major platforms.
