deandre: from the soul

Featured artist: deandre - deandre: from the soul

Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist deandre.

How did you decide to become an artist?

deandre: At first, I wanted to rap so I could get the girls, the cash, and all the fame. But since I almost got hit by a stray bullet when I was 15, I've been using hip hop more as an outlet to vent about the struggles of growing up…not only in the city of Detroit, but in general.

"Don't give up, use the un-constructive criticism as a reason to keep doing this."

This got me through so many days when I felt like
Just quitting rap.

What about concerts? Do you play live?

I play live every chance I get. I haven't had any luck finding any concerts to participate in, but when I find it I take advantage.

Best punchline you ever wrote?

"So if you got a squad, bring out your best so I can bring stress to that nigga's head like I was an S.A.T test."

What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?

I'm working on an album called "Nothing is forever". It's going to be a loose concept album, with the topics ranging from depression to love to hidden emotions. I came out with an album called "Destructive Behavior" on valentine's day. It features a song dedicated to my best friend who died in a house fire in 2014.

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

…I wouldn't sign to a major label.
With the label, you do get heard by a wider audience, but at the same time I'm not trying to get a 360 deal. They woulda got me with that when I first started but the promise of fame and fortune ain't gonna cut it no more.

Any last words?

I want to give a shout out to all the emcees in the city of Detroit who's out there grinding. I wanna give a special shout out to my fam: Dizzy, Shabazz The Great, My mans Lee, Johnny Doc$, Tonio Marshall, My boy Vel, J.Gray, Reliq, my dude butterz, And all the people who support my music. I wanna say R.I.P to Kyson and my bro Tywan. And I wanna send a middle finger to all the dudes who stay doubting me. You know who you are.

Where can we contact you?
