After his father left the service his final stomping grounds was Las Vegas NV or better known as “Sin City”. By the time he turned 19, Half Deezy had fathered a child. While music was his first priority he decided to serve in the US Army in order to provide for his family. Serving in Iraq he was forced to endure the thunder of mortar shelling, fire fights and the unrelenting ravages of war. Completing his tour of duty Half Deezy returned to the states, but not completely unscathed.
Diagnosed with Intermittent Explosive Disorder (Depression/Anxiety and adjustment disorder) the artist now uses his music as a form of self-therapy and a coping mechanism to deal with that crippling condition. Each and every day is a battle. Half Deezy is an artist who was fortunate enough to have worked with legends like, Baby Eazy E (E3), Spice 1, Bizzy bone of Bone Thugs N Harmony, someone who was featured on tracks with Daz & Kurupt of DPG (Dogg Pound Gangstaz), or Layzie Bone, and blessed enough to open up for the legendary group Bone Thugs N Harmony on their 20th Anniversary tour. Just recently opening for G-Eazy at SunFest 2016 in West Palm Beach Florida he plans to keep the momentum going. He has the hooks, the beats, and most importantly he has an unmistakable identity. Now, after almost ten years of military service Half Deezy is hanging up his uniform to make music a full time job.
To paraphrase a speech from the late, great General Douglas MacArthur: Old soldiers never die, but an artist like Half Deezy sure as hell’s not going to fade away anytime soon.” Read more on Last.fm.
