We sat down with DEON and wanted to hear more about how he grew up and got into the industry.
This is what the Young Artist had to say, “Well I don’t know where to start, I was born in Detroit, Michigan and I grew up in Norcross, Georgia. When I was younger I used to sing all the time but never paid attention to the fact that it could be a potential career for me, my family is very musical so it makes sense but I was so caught up chasing my hoop dreams I never noticed it.”
We asked “DEON” who has been a big inspiration in your career and he said, “Honestly when I first got into Christian Rap the person I looked up to so heavily was Trip Lee, I loved that way his message was always about God and he never dialed it down, that spoke a million words to me.”
DEON says that what really pushed him to get better was his brother and World-Class Singer, Rapper, Songwriter, Producer, and Engineer Scootie Wop, the two met in college and since then have partnered together to push each other to the top.
