Birmingham, AL – Devin “Dee” Morton has always had a deep passion for music, but it wasn’t until recently that the budding artist began to take his musical career seriously. Influenced by powerful rappers such as Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, Future and Nipsey Hussle, Morton’s music is encouraged and inspired by the way each artist has created a name for himself. Additionally, Dee Morton has respect for fellow artist Chief Keef for his ability to create a “lane for young dudes like myself.” Remarks the artist, “I listen to all types of music , all types of artist , from Bob Marley to new artist Like Kodak,” explaining that he derives his inspiration and vibe from every genre and sound.
Morton’s chief attribute is that he’s a one-of-a-kind person, “I’m me. I’m my own person. I’m one of one.” He brings this unique, eclectic personality to his music, creating a vibe that is entirely his own.
His newest project, a mixtape entitled #NSTLA is coming soon to digital platforms, a part of his personal brand No Sleep.
Ultimately, while Morton is eager to succeed in his own musical career, his goals extend far beyond himself. The artist’s two essential goals? “Reach a lot of people, and help my people.”
