Deveondi is an American hip hop rapper, songwriter, producer, business owner, and angel investor. Born on July 25,1981 and raised on the Westside of Atlanta Georgia. He has endured a world of uncertainty including poverty, disfunction, and parental addictions.
The rapper was raised in the Perry Homes Projects by his mother who noticed his love for music when he was just 5 years old. She recalls having to restrict him from listening to the radio and had to encourage him to go play with the neighborhood kids.
His father left the family when he was 10 years old,and as Deveondi recalls, his father was
“never mentally present”.
While living at Perry Homes, Deveondi was was exposed to drugs and gun violence among other hardships often experienced in government housing. In a desperate attempt to change the situation for the better, his mother sent him to North Atlanta Performing Arts High School. This school was “on the other side of town” but offered an environment of academic excellence including opportunities for him to focus on his music.
