Hi, my name is Deveron Mauricio, Elkhart. I'm 20 years old and I come from a small town in Indiana called I am not new to making music, I been doing this for a long time, but there's still things I need to learn and this looks like the perfect place to learn and be better.
I'm an upcoming artist out of Philadelphia. Been a creator since I was about 12 years old. I specialize in hip hop and trapsoul music genres. My main influences are 6lack, PartyNextDoor, Drake, Bryson tiller, Tory lanez, J.cole, and Joyner Lucas. I'm currently enrolled in school, seeking my associates degree in music production. The only way is up from here.
