It’s rare to find a young songwriter who can successfully transition from behind-the-scenes player to major label headliner, but with the release of R&B newcomer Deon’s impressive 2011 mixtape, For the Love, the 19-year-old rapper-turned-singer-songwriter proved he has the goods to command the spotlight. For the Love is a seductive collection of midtempo R&B/hip-hop jams, including the popular underground favorite, “Just Another Love Song.” Deon is now in the studio working on his full-length debut album, which will contain a handful of songs from his mixtape including “Just Another Love Song,” “On Top of the World” and “Dream Girl,” plus new bangers such as “313” and “Party Life.” “I want it to be pandemonium and chaos when my album drops,” says Deon. “I put all my emotions into it and now I’m ready for this dude from Harlem to affect the world.”

To be honest I love all types of food. But I'd have to say South America has my fave food.
Yeah my jackets, sweaters, and jeans.
Yes everyday, with my teeth and fashion.
No I dont.
Sing to girls, play basketball, and video games.
Yeah my dad

Wherever my heart guides my sound. Music is a feeling and thats what makes it so special. No one else can duplicate true emotions.
My mixtape is based off of a chain of real life situations and events I've experienced, so I took these scenarios and made my vision come to life on this mixtape through each song I wrote. It gives my fans and listeners a chance to know how much we may have in common and a chance to know a little bit more about me and what I've been going through since my music career started.
