A lot of people say it, but all you have to do is listen to him one time and you'll know the truth about the man born Deon Lemar Guyton, Jr.. For as his chosen emcee name states, Deon CanRap.
A native of Cincinnati, OH, Deon CanRap is currently sparking feelings of classic 90s hip-hop on LL Cool J's Rock the Bells radio on SiriusXM. That's where, like Tabari, you can hear his current single "Like This" in featured rotation on a regular basis. The airplay – a direct result of an interaction with the man born James Todd Smith – has been a long time coming for Deon, who plans to follow it up with the release of his sophomore album When Rap Was Life later this year.
On this episode of A Tight 45 (available on all major podcast platforms Wednesday, June 30, 2021), Deon talks with Tabari about his start in hip-hop, being an artist in-between generations of music, how his current single ended up on Rock the Bells radio, his future plans ... And why he hopes you see him performing as a thespian one day.
