Alternative Singer/Rapper De’Wayne Jackson makes his way onto our pages with his video for “Family Tree”. Blurring lines between rap, alternative, and guitar-driven rock, De’Wayne takes it back to his Houston roots, detailing his upbringing in a southern baptist household and facing the challenges of being young and black in America.
“With Family Tree, I was inspired to tell my story and the origins of my loved ones. For the first time, I had my audience and family in mind while writing a song. Getting to work with Kenny Carkeet & Corron Cole we were able craft the perfect mood to deliver this story. I wanted to make a song where if anyone had questions on who I was or where I was going they could listen to this song and get the exact answer. Hopefully through this song they can also get closer to who they are.” – De’Wayne
