dejuanJOHN, born Lamar Dejuan Johnson in Oakland, CA on May 26, 1990 is the fifth of eleven children. As a product of a broken home, Lamar experienced a plethora of obstacles during his adolescence that resulted in a dark and incarcerated period in his life. Still, the adversity served as a catalyst for change and he honed in on his artistic attributes and began writing. Lyrics poured out of him like water from a fountain and he heard a rhythm, a melody, a beat in every sound made. Those sounds served as a template and he rapped through his bittersweet past while freeing his soul with every word uttered; creating a song, a story. He is now and will continuously work at rebuilding the foundation of music and will not stop at "no" in terms of furthering his career.
