Kirill DZHAM Lupinos was born on January 27, 1986 in the town of Smolensk (Russian Federation). Later he moved to Moscow-city with his family. When later interviewed Dzham says at a young age, he recalls seeing both good and bad sides of Russian way of life, dark suburbs and luxury clubs, family problems and criminal atmosphere in his town. All that influenced him to become a rap artist as Dzham's poetry is based on the things that surround him every day.
Dzham has released 4 LP albums in Russia and has collaborated with the most famous Russian djs and artists though not being signed by any music label. He has 7 official videoclips with 3 of them on MTV Russia and other music channels. Now Dzham is recording tracks only in English language. Famous American producer Jim Beanz who is one of the Timbalands team of producers and composers produced one of the last tracks "EVERY DAY" and another one track will be recorded in Spring 2009. At the moment Dzham's arrival on the Russian and European rap scene has marked the beginning of a new era in rap music, with Dzham himself proclaiming that he is about peace not war. His light, soft sound and tunes and distinctive voice coupled with hints of 90's old school have all put Dzham in the running as one of the most outstanding and potentially successful new names in rap as he brings the new wave from the Eastern Europe with new emotions and energy.
He is recording his new album in one of the best studios in London – The Metropolis. In the beginning of March there will be finished the first video clip for the track "Every Day" which is supposed to be the first single in Dzham's international career.
