Devin "Young Dev" Johnson is the weirdo of the DONS crew. Although a rapper, Dev's sound and style is influenced by many genres. The struggle told in hip-hop, the pain of the blues, the love in R&B, and the free-spirit of EDM; all play an essential role in Dev's style.
Dev has been writing music all his life, even before he knew this was what he wanted to do with his life. However, it wasn't until 2008 that he started to take it serious; also influencing Killa & Lansky to do the same. The self-proclaimed Heart of Chicago, Dev speaks from a perspective that is a lot different from most rappers you hear coming from Chicago.
Coming from a gang affiliated upbringing; he has been apart of the street life, as well as experienced life outside of the hood.
Now living in Bronx, New York; Dev continues to tune his sound by taking his experiences growing up in Chicago and fusing it with his new lifestyle. The future is bright for this artist and entrepreneur.
