Samuel Spaller, otherwise known as Lil Sleep The Sandman, is a proud freestyle rapper and US Army veteran from Jefferson City, Missouri. Samuel’s stage name is actually quite calculated. Lil Sleep was not something chose on a whim. With that being said, “Lil Sleep” was generated from the ending of his military career.
Samuel was diagnosed with Narcolepsy- a rare sleep disorder, and honorably exited the Army due to the development of his condition. And as for “The Sandman”, that title is a message to his Middle Eastern heritage and family currently living over seas. Sleep hopes to become renowned enough in the music industry so that one day he may be able to bring his family to the United States.
