He fits a self-proclaimed genre of Progressive Hip-Hop which he chooses to release his dopamine through, while spreading a positive message that is relevant to today’s struggling society.
Deyshawn’s goal to make a positive change in the world is a result of the lessons, trials, and tribulations of his story and countless others. He has one self released title – “Life Elevated Pt. 1,” produced by Worth (Jackson Savage). There are several projects in action with producers such as Worth, Konsickwence.
