I am a whiskey drinking, boat shoe wearing, MC/DJ/Producer who currently resides on a Megabus between a pair of imitation BeatsbyDre Headphones. Still in a committed relationship with my first love, Hip Hop. However, I tend to have affairs with other genres. My iTunes playlist consist of everything from Oasis to Immortal Technique. But, I'd rather experience music live. Or, recreate it with my band. My rhymes are more often about student loans then "ridin spinnaz". I won't own a chain. But, I'd totally rock a grill. Baseball is my favorite sport. Olivia Munn is my celebrity crush. And, I can quote all of season 3 of "The Wire". I vote because its my responsibility. I walk between the lady and the street. I live my life with passion and love. Follow the golden rule. And, I believe in Good People, Good Vibes, and Good Art. #BalloonUP
Defacto Thezpian
Defacto Thezpian
It’s a word uniquely uttered by Hip Hop artist Defacto Thezpian that seems ideal when tasked with finding an adjective to describe his music.

There’s a new reality in the North Carolina hip hop scene in 2017. The talent present in the region that’s gone undiscovered is no longer a secret. With the continued success of artists such as J.Cole, Rapsody, Phonte’, names such as King Mez and Drugs Beats working with Dr. Dre, and many other up and coming artists , the entire state has become a hotbed for emerging NC emcees. Now, here comes a new challenger. Defacto Thezpian, one of the next rising stars from Durham, NC.

Voted Best Hip Hop Artist at the 2015 Carolina Music Awards, and long-time stage actor (hence the name), Defacto Thezpian’s lyrical prowess continues to have him mentioned as an elite in the Triangle area. Last year he released the ambitiously triumphant Raheem Royal: An Induction to Greatness. More recently he’s been featured on K97.5FM’s 919 Radio, and notable blogs such as 2DopeBoyz & HipHopDX, as well as festival stages like the 2016 A3C/Swisher Sweets Artist Project Showcase & YouBloomLA. He has also performed for the North Carolina State Fair. Defacto’s momentum carried over on to the Aff and Friends Tour, making stops in Brooklyn, St. John’s University, Charlotte, Wilmington, and Roanoke VA. One of the best live performers in the area, Defacto has already shared the stage with notable artists Raekwon, Nappy Roots, Well$, Joshua Gunn, Audio Push, Snow Tha Product, Pac Div, Young Dirt, as well as Professor Toon and The Real Laww.

When not focusing on his own Hip-Hop endeavours, Defacto uses his time to teach and positively influence children with his Creative Rap program at Walltown Children’s Theatre. Listen to his music and you’ll hear the true tales of a young male with tales that are similar to his peers, but shared in a manner that forces listeners to hit the playback button again and again.
