Check out Bentley Records new independent artist Deyvon Songwriter who has been making such a huge impact in the industry with his brand new single titled ‘Game over’ (Prod. by tunna beatz). This artist definitely has a bright career ahead of him. Independent songwriter and recording artist, Deyvon aka Deyvon Songwriter was born as Derek Rawlings Jr. in Bronx, New York. Raised by a single mother, with the help of his grandmother, he quickly developed an appreciation for music that has carried him from what could have been a bleak future on the streets into a promising career.
Falling in love with hip hop by the age of ten, Deyvon was influenced by such megastars as Biggie Smalls, Tupac Shakur, Michael Jackson, Ice Cube and DMX. It was this passion that drove him to take his talent to the next level.
At the age of thirteen, he wrote his first rhyme, but it wasn’t until the year 2013 that he went into a studio to record his first official track. His journey from that first attempt at writing and an actual recording wasn’t without incident.
He is forthright about the effects of growing up without a father in a tough neighborhood. Falling in with the wrong sorts, he found himself hustling at the age of fifteen, selling marijuana bags in his high school and on the streets. There is no doubt that his love of music and a desire to do something more preserved a talent that might have been otherwise wasted.
That seems like a long time ago now to the up and coming artist. With tracks like “Freaking You” and “Game Over”, he is making a name for himself in the business he has grown to love even more as the years have passed.
