Devious One


Winner of the Hip Hop category at the 4th Annual CIMVA’s for his video “Forbidden Fruit”. Devious One is an independent Emcee on the rise in the hip hop world with numerous mixtapes, two EPs, and a performance in Cuba with Dj Jigüe.   Born in the GTA to two deaf parents, he has never taken music for granted. Experimenting with the ones and twos from 1996 to 2006 was a big stepping stone for becoming an Emcee.   In January 2018 he released his first professional EP, World Demise, featuring Jimmyfromeastyork, Rama and Yonge Drama. This EP was produced by Bozack Morris, Retro and MixedbyMS. All original beats with no two tracks that sound the same, World Demise was well received by the fans, and amongst the hip hop scene.   His second EP, Survival,  was released in 2021, featuring Roshin, J.Don, Sir Malik One and Scheme DBK. The production of this EP was done by Big Sproxx, David Strickland, D.Wize and TrixxBeatz, and is available on all streaming platforms. “Off The Bench” a motivational track and the first single with accompanying music video has reached over 11K views on YouTube to date.  Devious One currently has a new compilation project in the works that is set to be released in 2023, as well as a music video for the song “How Ya Feel” (feat. Roshin & produced by Big Sproxx) from his Survival EP.   In addition to being an up-and-coming Emcee, Devious One, is a Political Activist, a Podcast Host, and works in the vinyl record pressing industry. He created the Facebook group New Music Tuesday, to give other indie artists a platform away from the noise of larger artists to release and promote their music. Previously Tuesday was the day new music was released, and Devious One decided to take that day back for indie artists. Catch his podcast New Music Tuesdays weekly at 9 PM where he interviews indie artists and industry professionals.   Linktree https://linktr.ee/DeviousOne
