Ghetto Devoted / Bio

Ghetto Devoted Entertainment, LLC. is a multi-media entertainment Company, specializing in: Artist/Talent Management; Model/Talent Management; music production and recording; regional grassroots marketing and promotions, and club promotions.

Established in 2009, Ghetto Devoted Entertainment, LLC. is the vision of Derron G. Felder aka "Goldie The Don". "The concept of Ghetto Devoted Entertainment is 'Universal. I don’t care where u go- there's a ghetto! From California to Japan- in every city, state, country or region- there's a 'slum', a 'project', a 'hood'- an impoverished community where individuals had it hard. But, even still, despite all the hardships and struggles, somehow its also a place where we still come to feel some sort of 'sentiment' 4!!! Hence, 'Ghetto Devoted'!!!!!!! It's Universal!! And, our slogan is 'Forever Our Love Clings Strong'- that's the 'love, life and loyalty' that we all have 4 our 'hoods'- our 'ghettos"!!!!

If asked to describe a particular style or "influence" of music- Ghetto Devoted would be described as the "Real Nigga- Hood/Street 'BOUNCE' Music"- reflecting all the Struggle, Grit & Grime- but yet, Glory & Glamour of Street Life- inflected in Catchy Hooks and Ratchet lyrical content that's so "groovy" that even the American "Pop Culture" would find it hard not to bob their head, rock out and "bounce" to!!!

And, as just as diverse as our geographical cultural tastes, ways, & lifestyles- Ghetto Devoted embodies that diversity in a number of Talented Artists from throughout the various Streets and Hoods of America!!!

There has been a complete reconstruction within the Group/Label-but, The 2012-2013 Roster of Ghetto Devoted Entertainment includes "The Don", himself- as well as a diverse style of Artists- starting with the' young, energetic- flowster from Nashville, Tennessee, "Yung Kavi R Tha' G."; the Southern Swag of "Mister Mike Lowery"- out of Louisville, Mississippi; That Florida Savage-Life of "Lil Scooter" & that Cocaine Wite Boi, "Yung G.O.O.D"...The 2011-2012 Roster included the bean-popper, party-hopper, but still always quick on the draw- Jizzle Tha' Pistol bka "Jizzle" aka "Pistol"! Next, coming from the rough and rugged 8th. Ward ( of Zanesville, Oh. ), "Doe Boi" aka "Scottie Boi Tha' Bully". And, also on the roll call of our "Freshmen Class of 2011" was lyrical wizard, "MakBwana"; our pretty boy swagga, "Yung Tay"; "Ghost"; "T Maja"; "Yung Kappy Tano" "Stacks"; "Olay"; our "Teeny-Bopper" Rock stars group, "RocSquad" and many others...
